What is a Ballast Controller?

Ballast controllers are used in order to control an electrical ballast, which is a device that is to limit the amount of current in an electric circuit through an electrical load.

Types of Ballast Controllers

There are many different kinds of ballast controllers and at Future Electronics we stock many of the most common types categorized by Circuit Type, Supply Voltage, Output Current, Maximum Supply Current, Packaging type and Voltage Range Required. The parametric filters on our website can help refine your search results depending on the required specifications.

The most common sizes for Maximum Supply Current are 75 A and 10 mA. We also carry ballast controllers with Maximum Supply Current as high as 20 mA. Supply Voltage can be as high 230 V.

Ballast Controllers from Future Electronics

Future Electronics has a full selection of ballast controllers to design a ballast control panel, lighting ballast control systems or for any applications requiring an electronic ballast control system. Simply choose from the ballast controller technical attributes below and your search results will quickly be narrowed to match your specific ballast controller application needs.

We deal with International Rectifier, Micrel Semiconductor, NXP and STMicroelectronics as ballast controller manufacturers. You can easily refine your ballast controller product search results by clicking your preferred ballast controller brand below from our list of manufacturers.

Applications for Ballast Controllers:

Ballast Controllers can be used in:

  • Remote controls
  • LCD panel backlights
  • Multimedia players
  • Pagers
  • Mobile phones
  • PDAs
  • Calculators
  • GPS receivers

Choosing the Right Ballast Controller:

When you are looking for the right ballast controllers, with the FutureElectronics.com parametric search, you can filter the results by various attributes: by Maximum Supply Current (75 A, 2 mA, 8 mA, 10 mA,), Supply Voltage (as high 230 V), and Circuit Type (CFL/TL Ballast, Electroluminescent Driver, PFC/Ballast Control,) to name a few. You will be able to find the appropriate ballast controller for lighting ballast control systems, a ballast control panel or for any applications that require an electronic ballast control system.

Ballast Controllers in Production Ready Packaging or R&D Quantities

If the quantity of ballast controllers required is less than a full reel, we offer customers many of our products in tube quantities that will avoid unneeded surplus.

In addition, Future Electronics offers clients a unique bonded inventory program that is designed to eliminate potential problems that may arise from an unpredictable supply of products containing raw metals and products with erratic or long lead times. Talk with your nearest Future Electronics branch and find out more on how you and your company can avoid possible shortages.
