48 vdc fluorescent ballastRedefining the State-of-the-Art of 48 VDC Electronic Ballasts

The NEXTEK NB5353/2R is a direct current 48 volt (DC) fluorescent electronic ballast designed to fit in standard fluorescent lighting fixtures and operates one or two T8 fluorescent lamp(s). The compact, high efficiency, and low power electronic ON/OFF control of the durable, high performance NB5353/2R make it a desirable component for all fluorescent lighting applications.

Designed for optimal performance with the NEXTEK Power Assembly (NPS-1000), the NB5353/2R can also be used with any 48 DC electric supply within the specified voltage operating range.

Low Power Switching

The NB5353/2R 48 VDC fluorescent lighting ballast features an optically isolated electronic ON/OFF control that requires only a minimal signal current. This unique feature enables remote switching without the power losses usually incurred by the wires that connect the switches to the lighting circuit.

A high level of architectural flexibility and lighting control is practical with the NB5353/2R. Lighted areas can be turned ON and OFF remotely with low signal cable, avoiding line voltage switches and electromechanical contactors. The NB5353/2R is exceptionally compatible with remote functions desirable for energy conservation, such as occupancy sensing and programmable controllers.

In addition, when lighting requirements change, low power switching allows lighting schemes to be altered without the need for expensive materials and labor usually required for power circuit retrofits.

48 VDC rapid start fluorescent light ballast designed to operate two F54 T5HO (High Output) fluorescent lamps. It features optically isolated electronic ON/OFF control via the standard low voltage RJ11 modular cable. When the inside two wires (red/green) of the RJ11 connector are shorted, the light
goes on. When they’re opened, the light goes off.
This feature allows for easy remote switching and interfacing with occupancy sensors such as the Sensor DT2-54-R-S-53VDC Switch CM-6-R-NPS.

• DC power to the ballast is never interrupted (unlike conventional AC ballasts that interrupt the power to turn the lights off).
• Designed for optimal performance with the Nextek NPS-1000 Power Gateway, the KT2-54-R-S-53VDC can also be used with any DC power supply within the specified
operating voltage range.
• Up to nine KT2-54-R-S-53VDC ballasts may be powered by a single NPS-1000 (eight ballasts if optional storage batteries are used).
• Lighting fixtures can be ordered from light fixture manufacturers with this ballast installed, or it may be installed on-site.
