GE UltraStart™ is a new generation of T8 and T5 Programmed Start (PS) ballasts that addresses the growing demand for energy-saving strategies incorporating occupancy sensors and other automated light controls to meet strict energy legislation. Switching lights off when an area is unoccupied or filled with daylight makes sense from an energy-savings viewpoint and it is also recommended or required now by several energy regulations.
These ballasts use a control circuit to apply very precise cathode heat to ensure that the cathodes have reached an optimum temperature during lamp starting. Precise starting significantly reduces the amount of cathode degradation associated with each start and increases lamp life significantly in frequently switched applications. GE has developed a line of PS ballasts that have the benefits of PS with the energy savings, fast starting and parallel operation convenience of instant start ballasts.
