- fluorescent lamp ballast
fluorescent lamp ballast means a device that is
(a) designed to start and operate fluorescent lamps by
(b) designed for input of 120 V, 277 V or 347 V; and
(c) designed to operate an F32T8, F34T12, F40T10 or F40T12 rapid-start fluorescent lamp or an F96T12ES, F96T12IS, F96T12HO or F96T12HO ES fluorescent lamp.
It does not include any of the following:
(d) a ballast that is designed to be used in an outdoor sign and to operate two F96T12HO fluorescent lamps in ambient temperatures at or below –28.9°C;
(e) a ballast that, by means of an integrated dimming capability, can reduce the output of the fluorescent lamp by 50% or more;
(f) a low-frequency T8 ballast that is designed and marketed only for use in an electromagnetic-interference-sensitive environment and that is sold in a package of 10 or fewer; or
(g) a program-start ballast that is designed to operate one or more T8 fluorescent lamps with a nominal overall length of 1 200 mm and a medium bi-pin base, and that delivers an average current of less than 140 mA to each lamp. (ballast pour lampes fluorescentes)
Marginal note:Energy-using product
(2) However, for the purposes of sections 4, 5 and 451, a fluorescent lamp ballast is not considered to be an energy-using product unless it is manufactured on or after February 3, 1995.
Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
Marginal note:Testing standard
(2) A fluorescent lamp ballast complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures established by the standard set out in column 1 that are applicable to a fluorescent lamp ballast as defined in section 449.
