see HID in a whole new light

A quantum leap in HID system performance

For 250/300/320/350/400-watt pulse-start

and CMH ® lamps.

imagination at work


Your bottom line is looking up. Especially when you look up and see your light

fixtures powered by UltraMax HID electronic ballasts. The UltraMax HID

electronic ballast, when used with a PulseArc ® High-Output Metal Halide lamp,

is 70% more energy efficient than typical standard HID electromagnetic

ballasts with probe-start metal halide lamps. UltraMax will encourage you to

see HID in a whole new light.

The UltraMax HID electronic ballast system features superior lumen maintenance

and lower ballast losses compared to magnetic HID ballasts. This means huge

reductions in energy consumption and lower maintenance requirements as a

result of either fewer fixtures required in new installations, or lower wattage

lamps required in retrofits. In addition, UltraMax HID is a low-frequency electronic

ballast, approved for operation with GE’s CMH ® lamps, due to its superior

performance. UltraMax propels metal halide lamps as a leading energyefficient

light source.

UltraMax HID electronic ballasts offer three main areas of value:

Lower Operating Costs *

• 10-point improvement in Lamp Lumen Maintenance allows for lower

wattage lamps in retrofits or less fixtures in new construction.

• A high-efficiency electronic ballast with a high-output PulseArc ® lamp

delivers 70% more mean lumens per watt than probe-start metal

halide lamps and 20% more mean lumens per watt than pulse-start

metal halide lamps.

Application Versatility

• Ballast easily retrofits on bracket- or surface-mount HID fixtures.

• Ballast housing design solves thermal, EMI, UL and mounting concerns.

• Multi-wattage capability — one ballast runs 250-, 300-, 320-, 350- or 400-

watt Quartz Metal Halide or Ceramic Metal Halide lamps.

• Runs on 208–277 volts.

• Independent 250-watt auxiliary lighting circuit on every unit.

Improving Quality of Light

• Significantly reduces lamp color shift typical with HID lamps.

• Virtually eliminates flickering.

• Total Performance System Warranty with GE’s ConstantColor ®

CMH ® lamps

*See Cost of Light Analysis on following pages for support of Lower Operating Costs claims.


A more efficient lighting system can save you thousands in energy and

maintenance costs, shedding some light on your bottom line. Whether it’s

reducing the lamp wattage in retrofits due to better mean lumens or reducing

your total fixture needs in new installations, UltraMax ballasts can keep

costs down. Here’s why we call this new development the “UltraMax ” ballast.

UltraMax HID electronic ballasts

• Ultralow Losses — 48% less ballast losses compared to electromagnetic

CWA ballasts = low temperature rise & high reliability. Backed by a five-year warranty.

• Lumen Depreciation Gain — Improves lumen maintenance by 10 points

on PulseArc ® Multi-Vapor ® Metal Halide lamps and 5 points on ConstantColor ®

Ceramic Metal Halide lamps.

• Tighter Regulation — Reduces lamp color shift over the life of the lamp.

Better voltage to lumen variation than magnetic ballasts.

• Reduce Inventory — Multi–wattage. One ballast runs 250-, 300-, 320-,

350- & 400-watt PulseArc ® QMH or Ceramic CMH ® lamps.

• Aesthetically Pleasing — The ballast housing can be mounted with

most existing bracket- or surface-mount HID fixtures in retail as well as

industrial applications.

• Multi–voltage Range — Voltage input of 208 to 277 volts +/- 10%.

• Auxiliary Lighting Circuit — Up to 250-watt quartz lamp output backup

on every unit.

• Xtreme Efficiency — By using the UltraMax HID electronic ballast in retrofits,

you can save 113 watts per fixture by replacing MVR400/U lamps with 320-watt

GE PulseArc ® Multi-Vapor ® Metal Halide extra-high-output lamps. Or, for new

installations, reduce the total number of fixtures by more than 34% with 400W

PulseArc ® lamps to reach the same mean light levels.


Lower Operating Costs

Metal halide HID lamps typically experience over a 50% drop in

light output over the published life of the lamp. This drop in light

output is referred to as lumen depreciation and is measured by

taking the lumen output of the lamp at 40% of its rated life. This

measurement is referred to as lumen maintenance.

UltraMax HID maximizes the lamp’s ability to maintain a more

consistent light output over its rated life and maximize lumen

maintenance. This translates into savings by providing more light

for your money over the life of the lamp!

the life of the lamp. Better lumen maintenance results in

extending recommended relamping times due to poor light

levels typically seen at 70% of rated life.

Percent Design Lumens

Most lighting systems are designed using mean light output

of the lamp. By not maintaining a consistent light level with

HID, designers need to select a lamp wattage type by its

mean lumen output. Light levels above the mean level translate

to wasted energy. Light levels below the mean are dollars

spent on energy for light that you are not getting. The bottom

line is better lumen maintenance results in energy savings.

Cost of Light Analysis

Most lighting systems are designed using mean light output of the

lamp. UltraMax HID produces more mean lumens over

conventional magnetic ballasts using the same wattage

lamps. This translates into savings in retrofit or new

installation applications. By using a GE UltraMax HID

electronic ballast, a 400-watt MVR metal halide lamp with a

CWA ballast can be replaced with a 320W Pulse-Start lamp

and reduce energy consumption by 113 watts (25%) and still

produce 24% more light. See chart to the right.

which operate at 345 watts, a 113-watt savings!

Traditional HID systems have suffered from the drawback of

poor lumen maintenance. The industry has seen a move

towards retrofitting existing HID systems with high-efficiency

and high-output linear fluorescent systems that have excellent

lumen maintenance.

But now you can see HID in a whole new light. The revolutionary

new UltraMax HID system allows you to retain the existing

fixture optics — thereby reducing initial investments — and

reach for the highest efficacy systems in the industry. The

benefit — astounding energy savings while getting equal or

higher mean light levels, maintaining existing fixture

layouts, reduced number of lamps to maintain and the option

of upgrading lamp wattages for more light or to GE’s

ConstantColor ® CMH ® lamps with high CRI levels.

Depending on specific requirements and the energy-saving

options, such as motion sensors, dimmers, daylight harvesting,

reduced light levels, etc., there may be other light source

options that are also viable.

The cost of light analysis below shows the energy savings

compared to the total investment required when evaluating

retrofit options in a 350' by 450' space illuminated to an average

of 75 foot-candles. The 320-watt UltraMax HID system

provides energy savings at a 2.0-year simple payback. In

addition, 24% more light is gained compared to 400W probestart

CWA ballast systems.

*Total operating costs may vary depending on KW rate, relamping schedules, etc.


Application Versatility

The GE UltraMax HID electronic ballast can be easily mounted on bracket- and surface-mount fixtures with a universal

mounting bracket provided with every ballast.

Mounting Bracket

Multi-wattage capability — one ballast runs 250-, 300-, 320-, 350-, or 400-watt QMH or Ceramic Metal Halide lamps.

• Fewer models handle more jobs, eliminating inventory hassles

• Dial switch provides easy wattage selection

UltraMax runs on 208–277 volts and can virtually “read” the incoming voltage and

adapt automatically to any voltage between 208–277. This benefit results in more

consistent light levels.

• Compensates for incoming voltage fluctuations or variations from unreliable power

• Manages voltage dips when equipment is switched on for best dip tolerance

• Simplifies installation and eliminates guesswork at the job site

250-watt auxiliary lighting circuit on every unit provides:

• Emergency standby independent lighting circuit

• No special relay or controls required

No lamp ignitor required

• Reduces additional components during installation

• Reduces potential for failures


Improving Quality of Light

UltraMax reduces lamp blackening, improves color consistency and virtually

eliminates flickering, for an overall improvement in light quality. If it’s display lighting,

where colors are important, or a warehouse that requires bright light over a large area,

UltraMax can bring a higher quality of light to any application.

Reduced lamp blackening

• Actual test lamps at

4,000 hours of operation

• Magnetically ballasted

lamp on left

• UltraMax HID

ballasted lamp on right

Most HID lamps powered by magnetic ballasts experience lamp blackening, which can

reduce lumen output and impact color change. UltraMax HID electronic ballasts

reduce color change for the life of the lamp.


ConstantColor ® Ceramic Metal Halide

The right lamp for retail and commercial display lighting

If color is critical in your lighting application, the GE

ConstantColor ® CMH ® lamp paired with the UltraMax HID

electronic ballast is the ideal combination. The Color Rendering

Index (CRI) of the ConstantColor ® CMH ® lamp is above 90,

which means it brings out the bright colors in the spectrum.

ConstantColor ® CMH ® lamps have as little as +/-75K color

variation, which means minimal color shift, and replacement

lamps look similar to the existing lamps being replaced. The

ballast-lamp system is perfect for retail displays and overhead

lighting where vibrant colors are a key factor in sales.

ConstantColor ® CMH ® lamps produce a white light with rated

mean lumens, which are 80% of initial lumens and typically

10–20% higher than standard metal halide lamps. The best

lumen maintenance combination is the GE UltraMax HID

electronic ballast with GE’s ConstantColor ® CMH ® lamps. The

GE UltraMax HID system is able to improve rated lumen

maintenance by 5 points to achieve an 85% rated lumen

maintenance. Improved lumen maintenance means longer

useful life of the lamp and lower total operating costs.

The UltraMax HID ballast is warranted for use with pulse-start

and Ceramic Metal Halide lamps. In addition, GE offers the

Total System Performance Warranty when used with GE’s

PulseArc ® Multi-Vapor ® and ConstantColor ® CMH ® lamps. The

Total System Performance Warranty provides one number to

call. We guarantee total system performance. The UltraMax

HID system has a low-output, square wave frequency design,

which provides consistent power that maximizes performance

and the life of the lamp.

GE Consumer and Industrial

Lighting

GE Consumer & Industrial (“ GE”) is pleased to provide the following limited warranty covering GE 250-, 320-, 350- and 400- watt PulseArc ® Multi-

Vapor ® and ConstantColor ® CMH ® metal halide lamps with GE UltraMax HID electronic ballasts.

GE warrants that the above-referenced lamps and ballasts comply with their published specifications and are free from defects in materials and

workmanship for the respective periods of time set forth below. The GE UltraMax HID ballast specification includes a 10-point improvement in mean

lumen output when operated with 250W – 400W PulseArc ® Multi-Vapor ® metal halide lamps and a 5- point improvement in mean lumen output

when operated with ConstantColor ® CMH ® metal halide lamps, compared to performance on CWA ballasts.

If a GE lamp mentioned above fails due to defects in materials or workmanship within (i) one (1) year after the date of purchase or (ii) within 5,000

hours of operation, whichever comes first, then GE will provide a replacement lamp at no charge. This warranty applies only to lamps that are

operated on a burning cycle of 10 hours or more per start); operated on GE UltraMax HID electronic ballasts that have been properly wired and

installed; operated within the electrical values shown on the ballast label; and operated in lighting equipment designed and approved for the

application and in environmental conditions (temperature, humidity and air movement) within the normal specified operating range of the system.

If a GE UltraMax HID electronic ballast fails due to defects in materials or workmanship within five (5) years after the date of manufacture, then GE

will, at its option, either (1) provide a replacement ballast and, in GE’s discretion, either retain a service provider to install the replacement ballast or

pay a reasonable labor allowance that is pre-approved by GE, or (2) refund the purchase price paid to GE for the ballast.

The foregoing lamp and ballast warranties apply only to purchases from GE or authorized GE distributors, but do not apply to failures caused by

acts of God or as a result of any abuse, misuse, abnormal use, or use in violation of any applicable standard, code or instructions for use in

installations, including those contained in the National Electrical Code, the Standards for Safety of Underwriters Laboratory, Inc., Standards for the

American National Standards Institute or, in Canada, the Canadian Standards Association. GE reserves the right to examine failed lamps and/ or

ballasts to determine the cause of failure and patterns of usage. The lamp installation date must be marked on the lamp to validate the elapsed

operating hours if a warranty claim is made. If lamp life is not validated, the lamp date code will be used to establish elapsed burning time based on

estimated usage.

The foregoing warranties constitute the sole and exclusive remedy of the purchaser and the sole liability of GE for lamp and ballast warranties. NO

WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE IS MADE OR IS TO BE IMPLIED. In no event shall GE be liable for any

other costs or damages including lost profits, incidental, special or consequential damages.

To make a warranty claim, retain the failed products and notify your authorized GE distributor or GE sales representative within thirty (30) days of

the failure.
