Understanding T12

Electronic Ballasts

Electronic T12

GE multivolt and dedicated voltage ProLine ® T12 high-performance ballasts are designed for

replacement of magnetic T12 electronic ballasts during maintenance or retrofits. GE multivolt

ProLine ® T12 ballasts have the same wiring and mounting requirements as standard magnetic

ballasts and provide up to 20% energy savings by simply replacing the ballast.

The DOE ballast ruling effective April 1, 2005, prevents the sale of 4 foot and 8 foot lamp

electro magnetic ballasts that operate T12 lamps and do not meet federal ballast efficiency

requirements. GE ProLine ® T12 electronic ballasts meet the DOE minimum ballast efficiency

requirements and also allow facility managers to reduce ballast maintenance inventories by

consolidating the number of ballasts needed. GE ProLine ® T12 ballasts operate both energysaving

and standard wattage lamps and are also multi-voltage (120-277V). With 2 ballasts, the

multi-voltage ProLine ® T12 can consolidate over 40 different magnetic ballasts.

Performance Features

GE240RSMVN and GE240RS120 comply

with FCC for residential use

• Low-profile and lightweight housing

simplifies installation and reduces

transportation costs (GE240 = 1.3 lbs. lighter

than magnetic; GE260 = 5.3 lbs. lighter than

magnetic)

• Parallel operation — if one lamp fails,

others remain lit

• Significantly quieter than magnetic

High-frequency operation virtually

eliminates lamp flickering typical in T12

electromagnetic systems

• Five-year limited ballast warranty

Electromagnetic T12

• Complete line of ballasts for 2-to-8 foot

lamps, circleline and high-output lamps

• 100% thermally protected

High-grade lamination steel assures lowest

wattage loss

• UL, CSA and/or cUL approved

• 888-GEBALLAST on every ballast

• Two-year limited ballast warranty
