The Department of Energy’s mandate 10CFR Part 430 ceased the manufacture of Magnetic Sign Ballasts (all Manufacturers) for not meeting efficiency levels prescribed by DOE. Magnetic Sign Ballasts can no longer be manufactured as of November 2014.
As a result of this mandate, the Philips Magnetic Sign Ballast Portfolio was replaced by the “eSign” Electronic Sign Ballast Portfolio in 2014.
