ELECTRONIC FLUORESCENT BALLASTS
Ballast Life
Philips Advance fluorescent electronic and magnetic ballasts are
designed and manufactured to engineering standards correlating to
an average life expectancy of 50,000 hours of operation at maximum
rated case temperature. Since Philips Advance ballasts operate below
their maximum case temperature in the majority of applications,
increased ballast life can be expected. As a rule of thumb, ballast
life may be doubled for every 10°C reduction in ballast case
operating temperature. However, there are many variables,
such as input voltage, ambient temperature, etc. which affect
ballast operating temperatures, and therefore ballast life.
Lamp Operating Frequency
Electromagnetic ballasts and the lamps connected to them operate
at an input voltage frequency of 60 Hertz (Hz), 60 cycles per
second — which is the standard alternating voltage/current frequency
provided in North America. Electronic ballasts, on the other hand,
convert this 60 Hz input to operate lamps at much higher
frequencies above 20 Kilohertz (kHz), 20,000 cycles per second.
Philips Advance ballasts operate above 20 kHz, but avoid certain
ranges such as 30-40 kHz (infrared) and 54-62 kHz (theft deterrent
systems) due to interference issues.
Because electronic ballasts function at high frequency, the fluorescent
lighting systems that they operate can convert power to light more
efficiently than systems operated by electromagnetic ballasts (See
chart below). For example, lamps operated on electronic ballasts
can produce over 10 percent more light then if operated on electromagnetic ballasts at the same power levels. In effect, today’s electronic
ballasts provide additional energy savings by matching the light output
from electromagnetic ballasts while operating the lamps at lower
power. This is the main reason why electronic ballast systems are
more efficient than magnetic ballast system.
electromagnetic models. Almost all Philips Advance electronic
ballasts have a smaller cross-section than electromagnetic ballasts
but maintain the same mounting dimensions. This means that they
can fit into all new fixture designs and can be easily retrofitted into
existing fluorescent lighting systems.
Controllability
The ability of a building’s occupants to control how they light their
space is becoming an increasingly important factor for organizations
in determining what real estate they will lease, buy or invest in.
The ability to dim the lights or easily shut them off completely is a
trend fueled not just by a desire to help the environment, but also
by significant economic benefits. These benefits include greater
energy efficiency — in terms of reduced HVAC costs as well as
energy savings for lighting — more comfortable and productive
working environments, and compliance with ever tighter energy
efficiency regulations. Philips Advance offers five families of electronic
controllable ballasts — ROVR, Mark 7 0-10V, Mark 10 Powerline,
PowerSpec HDF, EssentiaLine 0-10V and EssentiaLine Powerline.
Compatibility With Powerline Carrier Systems
A powerline carrier system (PLC) uses electronic wiring devices to
send information via a high frequency signal over the 120V or 277V
electrical power distribution system of a building. For example, PLC
systems are used in automatic clock systems (master time systems)
to synchronize all of the clocks in a building or reset the time after a
power outage. They eliminate the need for maintenance personnel
to reset hundreds of clocks throughout a facility.
In a PLC system, a generator is used to impose a 1 to 4V high frequency signal on top of the existing voltage sine wave (60 Hz). This
signal is generally in the 2500 to 9500Hz range, with some older
systems operating at 19,500Hz or higher. Some electronic ballasts
which are capacitive can absorb the signal from a PLC system. As a
result, the signal becomes too weak to be “heard” by the receiver
(like a timeclock) connected to the powerline.
Instant Start vs. Rapid Start Sockets for Dimming
Crest Factor
Lamp manufacturers use crest factor to determine ballast
performance as it relates to lamp life. Lamp Current Crest Factor
is a measurement of current supplied by a ballast to start and
operate the lamp. It is basically the ratio of peak current to RMS
(average) current. High crest factor currents may cause the lamp
electrodes to wear out faster, reducing lamp life. Crest factor
requirements are regulated by ANSI (American National Standards
Institute) standards and specified by lamp manufacturers. For rapid
start and instant start T8 lamps
the ratio is 1.7 maximum, and for

instant start slimline lamps, it is 1
.85 maximum.

Weight and Size Advantages
Since electronic components in electronic ballasts are smaller and
lighter than the core-and-coil assembly in electromagnetic ballasts,
electronic ballasts can weigh less than half as much as comparable

When using dimming ballasts in fixtures, sockets must be of the
Rapid Start type. Many fixtures with T-8 Instant Start electronic
ballasts use jumpered or “shunted” Instant Start sockets. Controllable
ballasts require two distinctly separate wires for each lamp socket. If
you encounter shunted or jumpered sockets in a retrofit application,
they must be removed and replaced with Rapid Start sockets.
Improper socket application will damage the ballast and void the ballast warranty.
Refer to ballast wiring diagram for proper installation.

Fluorescent Lamp Burn-In
Today, most lamp manufacturers do not require the burn-in of
linear fluorescent lamps prior to dimming in order to attain rated
lamp life and stable electrical measurements. However, some
manufacturers of compact fluorescent lamp sources do require a
100 hour burn-in prior to dimming. Consult your lamp manufacturer
for their latest requirements.
