Ballasts & Drivers
An electrical ballast or driver
is a device intended to limit the amount of current
in an electric circuit.
A familiar and widely used example is the inductive ballast used in fluorescent lamps, to limit the current through the tube, which would otherwise rise to destructive levels due to the tube's negative resistance characteristic.
Emergency Lighting is now selling programable LED drivers that will allow your LED lighting to be dimmable. When your driver goes out let us know the milliamps of the driver and we can program the LED to the exact milliamps.
Compared to general-service incandescent lamps giving the same amount of visible light, fluorescents use one-fifth to one-third the electric power, and last eight to fifteen times longer. Fluorescents have a higher purchase price than an incandescent lamp, but can save over five times its purchase price in electricity costs over the lamp's lifetime. Fluorescent lamps contain mercury, which complicates their disposal. In many countries, governments have established recycling schemes for CFLs and glass generally.
