Nation-wide Shortage of Electronic Ballasts

While there has not been a formal press release yet from any of the major lighting fixture or ballast manufacturers, please be advised that  this ballast shortage is very real and becoming increasingly wide spread. This shortage is due to a world-wide electronic component shortage encompassing critical capacitors and integrated circuits. Up until now this shortage has affected primarily standard T5 output ballasts. However it has also quickly impacted the availability of High Output T5 and T8 ballasts.  All ballasts types are feeling the effects of this shortage; rapid start, instant start and others. You should also expect this to impact the availability of CFL and HID ballasts and LED drivers. This shortage impacts all lighting fixture and ballast manufacturers large and small including: Philips Advance, Cooper Lighting, Acuity Brands and others.   www.connexiones.com/industry-news
