Rittal Universal Lights have been up-dated and re- designed to replace existing units and provide more efficient, safer lighting. The new light’s body is made from plastic instead of metal which provides improved contact hazard protection and better resistance to voltage peaks. And, the new lights feature enhanced cooling thanks to its efficient electronic ballast. The electronic ballast is expected to provide an energy-saving component as well – previously lights used approximately 3.4 W/h in standby mode and the new models are expected to draw just 1.9 W/h. The new, optimized lights draw 18W rather than traditional 25W.
Continuing in Rittal’s recent development of snap-in technology, these units enable rapid installation by using clips technology and/or screw connection in combination with the Rittal system hole pattern. As with compact and LED lights, installation takes approximately two-thirds less time with the connection systems.
These optimized lights are identical in size to the series being replaced, but provide these significant advantages over previous models:
- Plastic body reduces contact hazard potential
- Cooler operation with electronic ballast
- Installation options – clips and/or screws – reduce installation time by 2/3
- Reduced energy usage – from 3.4 W/h to just 1.9 W/h – using 18W rather than 25W
