Ballasts

Owing to their unstable behaviour, lighting devices built on the principle of electric gas discharge requires a ballast to increase stabilisation. It does this by controlling the starting voltage and operating currents of these types of lights. As part of the full lighting solution, Afcap supplies ballasts to be used with fluorescent, compact fluorescent and HID lamps.

High-intensity Discharge (HID) Ballasthid ballast

HID Ballasts are hard wearing and long lasting, and come with a protection class of 1. They can be used in conjunction with all high-intensity discharge lamps to limit the amount of current in the electrical circuit. Afcap’s HID ballasts are also vacuum-impregnated with polyester resin.
