As one of the country’s leading suppliers of lighting solutions, BLT Direct pride themselves on being able to offer cutting-edge technology for both homes and businesses. Their long-standing commitment to providing the most effective, inexpensive and technologically advanced products is more evident than ever in their Tridonic Atco Ballast section, which is in the process of being updated to ensure customers can browse the most up-to-the-minute products.
Ballasts are used to stabilise and limit the amount of current in an electrical circuit. When a device possesses negative resistance to the supply, it will continue to draw increased current from the mains until it is causes the power supply to fail, or until the device itself is destroyed. Ballasts are used to counteract this, providing positive resistance which keeps the current at a safe and practical level. From the most basic of series resistors, commonly used within LEDs, to computerised, electronic-controlled ballasts now used mostly with fluorescent lamps on a large scale, ballasts are complex devices. The Tridonic Atco Ballasts available from BLT Direct can meet all control gear requirements. Variants available from BLT Direct include High Frequency Ballasts, Compact HF Ballasts and Digital Electronic Ballasts, guaranteeing that all briefs are catered for.
The Tridonic 2D Pro High Frequency Ballasts are single lamp applications, and are among the most advanced ballasts available from BLT Direct. Intended for use with DD fluorescent lamps, these ballasts allow a continuous and constant lighting output, regardless of any fluctuations in mains voltage. They are ideal for use in emergency lighting situations, where the lamp will need to remain at a constant brightness irrespective of voltage variations. They are available in three different wattages (28w, 38w and 55w) and have a nominal lifetime usage of up to 50,000 hours.
Alongside the range of Tridonic ballasts, BLT Direct is updating its selection of converters, transformers, ignitors and inverters, all of which fulfil similar roles to the lighting ballasts. The Tridonic Super Imposed Pulse Ignitors are available in both standard and timed versions, and boast shorter restart times and automatic reset functions, ideal for situations where lighting systems are needed 24 hours a day, such as tunnels, mines, factories or warehouses. Tridonic Transformers are intended for use with low-voltage halogen lamps and function by adapting the mains voltage to 12v, with both electronic and magnetic versions available, whilst their Tridonic Atco TALEXXconverter Constant Voltage Converters help to regulate the current in constant voltage LED applications.
