Applications - DC Lighting

A typical AC ballast is a 3 stage device.
First, the ballast converts AC to DC.
Second, the DC is regulated so that the voltage is right for the ballast.
Third, a frequency generator creates the high frequency needed to excite the gas and make light.

A DC Ballast, on the other hand, uses only stages two and three. In this system the AC to DC conversion is done separately, at the NPS-1000 unit.

This system is ideal for applications where:
· Solar panels will be installed in the future
· Low installation-cost occupancy sensors are advantageous
· Backup batteries are to be integrated into the system
· Low Voltage wiring offers advantages
