There is no ban on magnetic ballasts in Europe!
Only an energy classification has been passed. Irrespective of the technology, all ballasts must comply with the corresponding loss values.
All VS HID ballasts already satisfy the limit values until 2017 (A3 mark).
In addition, VS already has a complete product range of all wattages in the program, which comply with the limit values from 2017 onwards (A2 mark).
