standards among lamp manufacturers assure compatibility of various
lighting components. In North America, we use ANSI codes. Internationally,
we use IEC codes. These codes assure that lamps and components
from different manufacturers will work together. They describe
lamp dimensions as well as thermal requirements.
Single Voltage Hybrid and HX magnetic ballasts were developed especially for the
pulse start lamp family. These highly efficient ballasts offer
superior lamp regulation characteristics for optimal color uniformity.
Growing evidence shows higher maintained lumens on
Single Voltage Hybrid and HX
ballasts. We also make pulse start CWA ballasts for
start lamps as well as a full line of ballasts for probe start
metal halide lamps.
Lighting makes both lamps and ballasts. We support industry standards;
however, we understand their limitations. We optimize our lamps
and ballasts for peak system performance that goes beyond the
standards. This is reflected in our warranty policy when Venture
lamps and ballasts are used together. This technical reference
provides information on our lamps and ballasts.
