D.C. Fluorescent Light Ballasts

D.C. Fluorescent Light Inverter / Ballasts

A low voltage d.c. ballast is properly called an inverter / ballast.

It takes direct current, inverts it into alternating current (a.c.) and
then the ballast part steps the a.c. up to a high voltage and high
frequency to fire (light up) the fluorescent tube.
Once the tube lights, the voltage and frequency drops down to a
level which keeps the tube going.

Please note: IOTA Engineering ballast have built-in Radio Frequency
Interference suppression. This reduces possible interference which
can be created by non-RFI suppressed inverter/ballasts.

These are also potted for environmental stability and durability.

If you need a d.c. inverter/ballast that is not shown on this page,
just call us at (562) 423-4879 and we will check on the availability,
lead time and pricing for you.

The 9 watt inverter/ballast are very popular with folks building and
using insect lures.
These also operate some of the most common germicidal UV
fluorescent tubes for sterilization and water purification.

We stock the following IOTA d.c. ballasts, there will be a link next
to the model that will take you to it in our main website for on-line or
by telephone ordering information:
