  3. Low energy consumption and long lifespan – The lifespan is about 10 to 20 times longer than traditional bulbs.

Why Choosing Antron’s T8 Fluorescent Ballast Series

The fluorescent tube is a flickering light source, and its flickering frequency is related to the frequency of the driving voltage. Although the human eye is not easily aware of it, it can produce a strobe effect, which may be dangerous in some working environments. Antron T8 fluorescent electronic ballast uses high-frequency lighting, the frequency of output driving voltage has been greatly increased, and the flickering frequency of the fluorescent tube has also been increased accordingly. The human eye is no longer affected by this high-frequency flicker.
