Why Is The UV Ballast Alarming?
1 Why Is The UV Ballast Alarming? on Mon Dec 02, 2019 9:12 am
<p>The UV system includes a UV ballast that converts the water energy to the electric input needed to light the UV lamp. If the lamps at the UV system are not switched on, the water isn't sterilized along with the UV ballast goes into alert mode.</p><p><br></p><p>The electronic <a href="https://www.lyluvlight.com/uv-ballast" target="_blank">ultraviolet UV-6 ballast</a> from the UV system includes a separate alarm circuit, so an alert is issued when the lamp cannot be powered.</p><p><br></p><p>Uv lamps possess a germicidal uv output lifetime of 9-11,000 hours, after which they emit blue light such as translucent bulbs, but still do not kill bacteria. Therefore, replace the lights once a year. This will create an alarm at the ballast.</p><p><br></p><p><a href="https://www.lyluvlight.com/uv-ballast" target="_blank">UV Ballast</a>s have onboard movs but are not a replacement for appropriate surge protection gear recommended on gear, particularly in rural areas. Blackouts generate odd frequencies and voltages in the grid, which can damage ballasts. Therefore, we advocate the use of a surge protector rated at 3600 joules or greater to protect the ballast from any harm. It's also suggested to plug the ballast to a dedicated socket, not into the exact same socket as the pump.</p><p><br></p><p>The alert state of the ballast doesn't automatically signify that the bulb has to be replaced. It merely tells us that powering the lights is an issue. Therefore, it's very important to notice that the frequency of lamp varies, as the security of drinking water is dependent upon the diluent in this step.</p><p><br></p><p>In case ballasts are an issue, the very first thing to ask is when was the last time a light bulb was changed. If the bulb was replaced for less than a year, then we have to assume that the ballast is damaged, because the bulb typically doesn't quit working. The simplest way to do this is to try and find out if the ballast will light up another light if it is fine to have it about. When there's absolutely no second light around, we might need to substitute it and continue. Once we add a known good lamp to the buzzer ballast we can learn whether the alarm is a ballast or a lamp. If the ballast is good, it will light up with all the lamp. If the UV ballast is blown up, it will beep even if a brand new bulb is utilized.</p>
