High-pressure sodium, non-cycling lamp is the newest addition to the company’s Ceramalux line. The lamps are said to eliminate the unwanted cycling that often causes outdoor lamps to consistently turn off and on at the end of life, now making it easier to determine which lamps should be replaced. The lamp passes U.S. EPA’s TCLP test for non-hazardous waste, and contains up to 90% less mercury than a standard high-pressure sodium lamp. For more about Ceramalux from Philips, click here .

Five-tap lighting ballasts are now an optional feature on many of the manufacturer’s fixtures. Five-tap ballasts are said to give customers a versatile lighting solution for use on each of the five U.S. voltage systems: 120-, 208-, 240-, 277- and 480-volt. This should translate into reduced stocking requirements for the end user, distributor and contractors involved in fixture installation and maintenance.
