SELC SmartStar® Ballasts offer an affordable, high quality and intelligent street lighting solution to power all High PressureSodium, Metal Halide (including COSMO CDM HQI) and HIDLamps. This reliable and flexible Electronic Ballast can be programmed with interactive communications software so as to allow two-way communication with Control and Monitoring Systems incorporating Lon Works & DALI. SELC SmartStar® Ballasts eliminate any form of arc tube damage and maintain full power to the lamp even if the mains input voltage dips or fluctuates to 70V below its nominal.

Even if there is no two way communication this ballast can be programmed to dim or switch on/off at specified times during the night with the use of a standard photocell or where group switching is employed. Manufactured in the EU the SmartStar® Ballasts can be specified with up to four different dimming regimes per night for energy saving, carbon reduction and safety.
