Thermally-protected electronic HID ballasts
Using closed-loop circuitry, these electronic HID ballasts help protect against recessed downlight luminaire overheating.
e-Vision electronic HID ballasts have dedicated circuitry for self heating thermal protectors for 70- and 100-W metal halide downlight applications. The ballasts are designed with an independent and smart-sensing thermal protector power source, and feature an auto shut-off mechanism for lamps operating in a questionable thermal environment due to misapplication or failure of thermal protector heating elements.
The ballasts feature IntelliVolt multiple-voltage technology, which enhances accuracy and ease of ordering while providing consistent protection and illumination, even during voltage dips or brownouts. The ballasts' lamp wattage regulation optimizes lamp color quality over life and reduces lamp-to-lamp variations, while the electronic circuitry offers end users and luminaire manufacturers broad opportunities for energy savings, cost reduction and design flexibility relative to magnetic HID alternatives.

Annual Salary Survey
Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
