Danvers, Mass. – North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA announces QUICKTRONIC® PROStart® XL Electronic Systems are now covered by the new QUICK 7XL+™ warranty, the longest in the industry. This warranty covers PROStart T8 and T5HO ballasts for 84 months when paired with OCTRON® 800 XP® XL (eXtended Life) ECOLOGIC®3 and PENTRON® HO XL ECOLOGIC® fluorescent lamps, two years more than the comparable 5-year warranties offered by others. As with the original QUICK 60+® warranty, the QUICK 7XL+ warranty offers additional coverage for those lamps, and each time a customer group re-lamps after installing this system, the lamp portion of the warranty will extend for an additional term.

OSRAM SYLVANIA has been at the forefront with “the system solution™”, a family of ideally designed energy-saving lamps and electronic ballast combinations optimized for industry leading performance and quality. OSRAM SYLVANIA has the competitive advantage with years of experience in designing, developing and supporting integrated systems both in ballasts and lamps.

QUICKTRONIC PROStart ballasts featuring lamp striation control are available in a variety of T8, T5 and T5HO dimmable and non-dimmable ballast types. Dimmable ballasts are available in combined AC Line and 0-10V, 0-10V only and DALI dimming protocols. They deliver optimized program rapid start technology extending lamp life and allowing for over 100,000 switching cycles, making them ideal for occupancy sensor applications. Both the QUICK 60+ and QUICK 7XL+ warranty cover occupancy sensing applications down to 10 minutes per start. These ballasts offer many control options to meet or exceed more stringent ASHRAE 90.1-2010 and California Title 24 2013 Energy Code lighting control requirements.

“Our global network of design and manufacturing brings ballast and lamp knowledge together to produce innovative and cost-effective energy saving systems. Customers can appreciate the long life provided by our wide range of fluorescent lamps and, as a result, having fewer lamp replacements. Today’s announcement delivers even more peace of mind that OSRAM SYLVANIA is there for them,” said Yichi Au, product marketing manager, Fluorescent and HID Ballasts, OSRAM SYLVANIA. “By providing more combinations and wider applications, we are offering the broadest ballast offering available in the industry.”

QUICKTRONIC T8 PROStart electronic ballast options include High Efficiency (QHE) T8 POWERSENSE® dimming (the industry’s first ballast to combine 0-10V and two wire AC dimming), DALI dimming, QUICKSTEP Bi-level systems and non-dimmable ballast versions, including Type CC, parallel wired and high temperature ballast types. The QUICKTRONIC T8 PROStart ballast offering also includes Professional Series (QTP) non-dimmable and Helios 0-10V dimming ballasts. When coupled with OCTRON 800 XP XL lamps, the QUICK 7XL+ warranty covers the ballast for up to 84 months and covers the OCTRON SUPERSAVER® XP XL lamps for up to 84 months and the OCTRON XP XL lamps for up to 72 months. OCTRON XP XL lamps feature eXtended Life benefits of up to 75,000 hours life on instant-start ballasts and up to 84,000 hours life on programmed rapid-start ballasts.

QUICKTRONIC T5HO PROStart electronic ballast options include high efficiency (QHE) T5HO POWERSENSE dimming, DALI dimming, QUICKSTEP Bi-level systems and non-dimmable versions, including switchable and high temperature types.
