We are presenting three versions of Electronic Ballast technology in the prototype form itself
(with the same model and serial number) as Version 1, 2 and 3. All the major tests for compliance to the “General and safety requirements”
of IS 13021(Part 1) and “performance requirements” of IS 13021(Part 2) have been done for version1, at Central Power Research Institute (CPRI),
Bangalore and Electronic Test and Development Centre (ETDC). The version 2 and 3 are slightly improved model to version 1, without any major change in the circuit.
For version 2 & 3, only the important tests for which there is deviation from version 1 has only been conducted. The compliance to the rest of the parameters of version 2
and 3 to the standards are self-certified by us regarding all the tests done for version1. We have developed a new improved version of the Electronic Ballast Technology (Version 3),
which has unity power factor. The circuitry is similar to the earlier versions and complies to all the important tests of Indian Standards for Electronic Ballast.
For all the three versions, the testing procedures as per standards, which required opening of the product cover and exposing the circuit, has not been done at the testing institutions, in order to ensure absolute confidentiality. Moreover those tests are not pertinent to the technology, but to the product design (The product design and the PCB layout is decided by the manufacturer based on their production process and layout).
For all the three versions, on the right hand side of each test reports' page under the head "Test Report's Explanation Bar", individual "Explanation" link button is provided corresponding to each of the test conducted, and in "the pop up windows" of this "Explanation" link button, detailed explanations regarding the test parameters and procedures for all the test conducted is specified. In these explanations to the test reports, relevant portions of the Indian Standards for Electronic Ballast and the Tubular Fluorescent Lamp have been quoted. Further detailed explanation if required for the same can be given on pursuant enquiry.
