  • 2. GloGreen Series Digital HID (DHID) Ballast Retrofit and New Installation GuideHow to Install DHID Retrofit BallastsFor typical existing Low-bay/High-bay and Street/Parking Lot HID light fixture applications, a core and coil(magnetic) ballast of 70W to 1,000W power will be upgraded. For a magnetic 250W fixture upgrade, for example,a GloGreen DHID 100W or 150W retrofit ballast is installed; for an existing magnetic 400W fixture, the GloGreenDHID 250W retrofit ballast is installed.DHID Ballast Retrofits/Replaces 70W to 450W Magnetic Ballasts in Existing Fixtures:Install GloGreen 50W, 70W, 100W, 150W or 250W DHID retrofitballast to upgrade existing magnetic 70W – 450W fixture ballasts.Internal Retrofit- Install the DHID ballast inside the existing magnetic ballast HID fixture housing as shown in the image to the right.- Provide a mounting plate/heat sink for secure installation in the housing (please see pages 29-30 of this package for additional information on heat sink installation)- For Wallpack or similar wall mounted fixtures; consider installing the ballast behind the fixture/through the wall- Install a new recommended HID lamp External Retrofit - Accendo Engineering recommended retrofit method - Install DHID ballast within 49 feet or 15 meters of fixture as shown in image to the left. - Use existing Junction Box if possible - Install a new recommended HID lampDHID Ballast Retrofits/Replaces 575W to 2000W Magnetic ballasts:Install GloGreen 400W, 575W, 600W, 750W and 1000W DHID retrofitballasts to upgrade existing magnetic 575W – 2000W fixture ballasts.High-Wattage Ballast Retrofit Options- Install the DHID ballast in place of the existing magnetic ballast in its existing junction box or environment proof enclosure.- Provide a mounting plate/heat sink for secure/proper installation.- Install a new recommended HID lamp

  • 4. DHID Ballast Installation Rules, and Do’s and Don’tsIn order to ensure the longevity and uninterrupted service of your DHID ballast, the following guidelines,as outlined and recommended by Accendo Engineering, should be followed. Not doing so may result ina shortened life expectancy of the ballast and may void the Accendo Warranty (see page 6 of this package).Please follow these installation rules when deciding on a proper installation/mounting location: 1. Sub-zero temperature environment is not critical for the operation of the Digital HID ballasts. If the recommended HID lamp can work in a given sub-zero environment, the DHID ballast will ignite it. 2. The upper limit of 72°C/161.6°F case temperature (Tc) is critical. If Tc exceeds 72°C/161.6°F the life expectancy of the DHID ballast will be compromised. 3. External installation of the DHID ballast is preferred (especially for GloGreen 200/250W, 250W, 400W, 600W, 750W and 1000W ballasts. 4. If the DHID ballast is to be installed in an enclosure, specific steps must be taken to ensure that Tc will not exceed 72°C/161.6°F over a prolonged time span. 5. If there is any doubt about the level of Tc, a test installation is required and should be performed where the Tc case temperature is being monitored under a "worst case scenario". 6. Do not install the DHID ballast inside of Wallpack and similar small fixtures where the proximity of the High-Intensity Discharge lamp is very close to the DHID ballast; if this is the only consideration, a temperature test should be performed on the ballast to ensure it is not operating above the maximum 72°C/161.6°F case temperature rating. 7. As to not exceed the rated 72°C/161.6°F ballast case temperature, a proper mounting bracket or heat sink should be installed (please refer to pages 2 and 3 of this package for additional details). Proper heat sinking of the DHID ballast can lower the Tc by as much as 10°C/50°F to 14°C/57.2°F. Do’s and Don’ts  Do not operate the ballast in a location or enclosure where the ballast case temperature (measured at the top/outside of the ballast) may exceed 72°C/161.6°F  Do not install the ballast directly over top of or in close proximity to the HID lamp as this may increase the temperature of the DHID ballast above 72°C/161.6°F  Do not install the DHID ballast inside of an enclosure that is too small/tight, which may pinch or damage the input/output wires of the DHID ballast.  Do test and measure the DHID ballast case temperature on a small sample first before committing to a large installation base where heat concerns may be suspected  Do communicate with Accendo in regards to any installation or technical questions you may have  Do operate Accendo Engineering recommended HID lamps with DHID ballasts when possible; if not possible, communicate with Accendo to ensure HID lamps available in your region are compatible.  Do consult with Accendo in regards to the best installation method and lamp choice for ‘retrofit’ applications; it is important that the installation method and lamp choice is correct to ensure the optimal operation/performance of the upgraded fixture over the long term.  Do install and operate the DHID ballast as recommended by Accendo Engineering to ensure year after year of uninterrupted operation; failure to do so may result in voidance of the Accendo Warranty.  Do ensure lamp orientation is correct; if not, the lamp may fail. Is it a horizontal or vertical mount lamp? Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.

Only then can dimming begin.4) The ballast input voltage must be kept within the accepted line voltage range for the ballast type (±10% for DHID ballasts)5) The dimming device should not allow the ballast current crest factor to exceed 1.8.HID LampsAccendo’s warranty statement does not include lamps. For any warranty on lamps the applicable warranty statement of the lampmanufacturer shall apply. Only lamps recommended and approved by Accendo shall be used with Accendo’s DHID ballasts.Product replacement/liability limitsThe foregoing warranty shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of the purchaser and Accendos sole and exclusive remedy to thepurchaser.
