Universal ballasts has a full line of ballasts for your fluorescent, metal halide, high-pressure sodium, or mercury vapor lighting. Universal Manufacturing Company was among the first companies that made ballasts for lighting fixtures. Since 1947, they have been setting the standard for the industry in customer service and product innovation. Since ballasts represent a significant investment and they need to be wired in directly to the fixture, it makes sense to choose one that will last the longest and have the smallest chance of being defective out of the box. Universal - Magnatek invests a lot of money, time, and effort into quality control for its ballasts specifically to provide customers with confidence that their new Universal ballast is the best that money can buy.
It stands to reason that there are many different types of ballasts, and Universal ballast has you covered in all of them. Some of the most popular ones are electromagnetic ballasts for standard T12 fluorescent lighting applications. These ballasts come in rapid start models, which allow you to get light with very little wait after turning your light switch on. If you want maximum energy efficiency for your magnetic ballasts, you will want to order Universal Plus ballasts. You may also choose Slimline and rapid start dimming ballasts in this category. If electronic ballasts are what you seek, Universal also has a full line of that type of ballast as well. There are low profile ballasts designed to fit into smaller, tighter locations. You can get reduced harmonic ballasts in standard and high output varieties. In fact, today's ballasts can adapt to different voltages, so you can purchase one type of ballasts to use in all locations--whether they are 120 volt, 277 volt, or 347 volt ballast needs. Of course, HID ballasts from Universal Etensity have higher lumen outputs than other standard ballasts and are the latest technology available to maximize your lighting investment in mercury vapor, pulse start metal halide, metal halide, and high-pressure sodium ballasts. Lastly, for compact fluorescent ballast needs, you can choose Universal Microstar, or the entire ballast kit under the Universal Mult-E Kit brand.
When dealing with ballasts, installation is a crucial component of the purchase. You need to know that you will be able to install the ballasts effectively and easily, which is why Universal labels each ballast with a special diagram of how the device is designed to be wired in and operate. Easy color coded wiring in NAED standards help to make sure your installer won't make mistakes. If you are worried about PCB's, then rest easy as no Universal ballasts since the 80's have contained any. What you get with a ballast from Universal Lighting Technologies is a superior quality product, safe and easy installation and operation, and a wide variety of ballasts to choose from.
