ElectronicHID ballasts

e-Vision® electronic HID ballasts include circuitry for self-heating thermal protectors for 70- and 100-W metal halide downlight applications. The ballasts feature an auto shut-off mechanism for lamps operating in a questionable thermal environment due to misapplication or failure of thermal protector heating elements.
