Ballast Analyser

  • Product No:2571R / 2572R / 2573R / 2574R
  • Manufacturer:Xitron Technologies, INC.

XITRON’s 2574R Ballast Analyzers feature the speed and versatility to completely change the way ballasts and tubes are tested.

• Displays all relevant ballast input/output measurements on a single screen
• Completely tests a ballast in less than 100 ms
• Fully automatic ballast start-up and tube striking detection
• Results displayed graphically or numerically with down to 1 ms time resolution
• IEEE488 control of AC sources for single user interface
• Wide bandwidth, ballast output frequencies to 2 MHz
• Every signal is monitored continuously with 12-bit, 2 MHz sampling
• Print comprehensive test reports in semi-automatic test environment from built-in printer interface, or record in engineering environment
• Automatic test sequencing and complete comparison of measurements vs. limits, including selection
of different 1500 series load modules and engagement of 1500 series line switch modules. No computer or user software required
• Graphical startup profiling with time sequencing
• Graphical historical measurements
• Supports magnetic, instant/rapid start, HID < 5kV pk, compact, high frequency, and hybrid ballasts, plus LED inverters
• Test Summary Screen designated for the production floor environment, can display either a large PASS/FAIL
or, upon query, can show up to 3
