Soft Start Technology
The Lucius Ballast is a digital ballast on a software based platform. Utilizing Japanese componentsand unparalleled engineering, Lucius is able to achieve a less than 1% return rate. Upon ignition,Lucius ballests will ease up to full draw . It will take about 15-20 minutes to achieve full intensity and energy draw. The feature helps avoid huge amperage draws when your system turns on.
Restrike of hot lamps
In the event of power failure,Lucius digital ballasts utilize a timed re-strike system that will detect hot lamps before re-striking.If hot lamps are detected ,re-strike will be delayed for 60 seconds intervals until lamps have cooled sufficiently for re-strike.
Lights will ignite sequentially to completely balance the electrical draw& avoid tripping breakers.Lucius ballast have the ability to detect load stability and will ignite lamps when the load is most stable.Because lamps ignition sequentially ,one at a time with soft start ,your electrical system avoids surges and spikes and allows for maximum energy efficiency.
SenseSmart is a series of pre-ignition self-diagnostic checks,which checks for 8 different safety factors before attempting topower the lamp.This technology creates a closed circuit between the lamp(output) and your power source(input) and will stop operation to the lamp if anything dangerous is detected.The ballast will attempt to restrike the lamp every 90 seconds until the issue is cleared.
