Product Description

The REDiTEST B30ST features EOL time-delay circuits that maintain your lamps efficiency even during short hiccups in the power line. The device is rated for indoor Damp Locations for both the United States and Canada and can work in tandem with your 2, 3 or 4-lamp AC ballast. Its also a great replacement transformer for your emergency-only fluorescent or CFL units.
