On November 14, 2011, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) published new standards for fluorescent ballasts to be effective November 14, 2014. These new standards cover T12 ballasts as well as sign, residential “only”, T8 and T5 ballasts. Previous standards covered only T12 ballasts.
These rules cover ballasts that operate
At nominal input voltages at or between 120V and 277V
At input frequency of 60 Hz to the ballasts
Designated miniature bi-pin (T5), medium bi-pin, single pin and RDC (T8-T12) based fluorescent lamp types
Many OSRAM high efficiency ballasts meet the new standards. For more information, please contact your LEDVANCE sales professional.
