Iota Engineering 2D12-1-9 12 VDC Low Power Ballast
NOTE: Iota Engineering has a limited supply of these ballasts available. Please give us a call or email us for ordering information.
Iota has been involved with the production of low voltage high frequency (Electronic) ballasts for fluorescent lamps since 1968. Iota DC Ballasts are one of the most efficient and dependable ballasts available anywhere, and have been designed to operate a wide range of fluorescent lamps for a number of different input voltages. These are mainly intended to convert existing 115 volt fixtures to 12 volts DC, but we also sell quite a few to people making up their own green fishing lights. These are larger than the Thin-Lite ballasts and may not fit in smaller fixtures. Reliable Starts - wide operating voltages assure consistent performance. Inherent circuit protection to insure low RFI - conductive and inductive. High frequency switching eliminates lamp flicker. All ballasts are designed to operate within a range of voltages chosen to reflect real operating conditions. For instance, a nominally rated 12 volt ballast will operate over a range of 10.5 to 14 volts since this is typical of a 12 volt storage battery during charge and discharge cycles. Operation of the ballasts on higher than rated voltages will result in ballast overheating and shortened lamp life. Under-voltage operation will cause poor lamp starting and excessive blackening at the ends of the lamp. All ballasts contain reverse polarity protection in the event the ballast is connected to the DC source backwards. All of these units may be used in positive and negative ground distribution systems, since the ballast is electrically neutral.
