"As an industry leader in developing environmentally friendly products and
 manufacturing solutions, American Ballast and its parent company, Phihong,
 are committed to meeting voluntary and mandatory worldwide regulatory
initiatives," said Eric Xie, American Ballast’s R&D Director. "Phihong is
the first external power supply manufacturer to attain the U.S. ENERGY STAR
 certification and has also been recognized by the U.S. Environmental
 Protection Agency as an Innovation Design Eco Award Winner for
 environmentally friendly products. American Ballast has adapted the same
mentally and technology for its environmental friendly LED Driver products."

Featuring Instant Start technology with parallel circuit configuration, the
LED drivers are engineered to outperform other Instant Start drivers. The
operating temperature range is -20ºC up to 70ºC, eliminating the concern for
use in harsh or cold weather environments. The LED driver is protected for
failure with over voltage and current protection. In the case where the
 driver does short circuit, the advanced engineering provides for
auto-recovery and return to full power.

Ideal for parallel and series configurations, American Ballasts’ LED driver
family is IP20 and IP66 rated for dry and wet locations. In addition, the
LED driver offers enhanced design functions including the capability to
 create versatile lighting effects with the dimming capabilities and light
distribution control for each LED built into the fixture.

 Each driver is 95 x 76 x 32mm and have an AC input of 110Vac. Operating
levels range from 160-304Vac and have been tested to ensure a current
 accuracy level of one per cent and load regulation of three per cent.
 Customers are guaranteed a high-performance driver that meets EMC, FCC, RoHS
and government safety standards. 

All American Ballast lighting solutions
 are UL & CuL recognized.

 With the development of advanced thermal technology the drivers are
guaranteed to maintain a high-level of performance and long operation.
