For your safety

Switch on and off safely – Do not unplug any component of the unit without properly disconnecting the ballast from the power outlet first. Make sure the unit is grounded.

Use only AMKO SOLARA components – SOLARA Induction Lighting Systems are designed specifically to work with each component of the system. Please do not use any outside components or enhancements with the system to prevent damage to the unit.

Dimmable ballasts – Our dimmable ballasts and dimmers are designed specifically to work with SOLARA Induction Lighting Systems. Do not use any unapproved or incompatible components or enhancements with the lighting system.

Use sensibly – Use only in the normal circumstances and environment that is clean with good ventilation. Do not use near fuel or chemicals. The key to the long service life of induction lighting systems is proper heat dissipation, and it should be observed when installing the unit. The average surface temperature of the lamp may reach temperatures from 60 degrees Celsius (140F) up to 75 degrees Celsius (165F), while the surface temperature of the ballast may reach up to 60 degrees Celsius (140F). The heat sinks and brackets may be hot spots with higher temperature. Allow the unit to cool down before handling.

Water resistance – Your unit is not water resistant. Keep it dry. Fixtures with IP 65 ratings or higher can prevent your unit from getting wet.

Installation Tips: :

When installing the lamp unit, please check to make sure that the bent mercury reservoir is not pointing upwards. The maximum allowance for an angled installation is 45 degrees. Do not expose the lamp to temperatures greater than 110 degrees Celsius (230F) and the electro magnets (aka transformers) to greater than 120 degrees Celsius (248F). Lamps to be installed in temperatures less than -20 degrees Celsius (-4F) requires special customization to the unit from the manufacturer, and should be specified before ordering/purchasing the unit. Handle the lamps with care – the glass is fragile. Use gloves if necessary.

When installing the electronic ballast, please ensure that the placement of the ballast will not expose the ballast to temperatures greater than 65 degrees Celsius (150F) or it will degrade the service lifespan of the unit. The ballast is designed to accommodate ±10% of voltage irregularity. Only qualified personnel in your country (certified electrician) may install or repair this product.

If you are installing the unit to a fixture that is not provided by AMKO, please consult with our technical personnel for installation advice and suggestions.
