Lutron Lighting System Replacement

The Lutron 3-Wire Ballast Control is used to control Lutron’s fluorescent ballasts. Due to industry regulations and improved technology, fluorescent lighting products are being phased out in favor of LED solutions.

Lutron will no longer sell or support 3-Wire Ballast Controls as of end-of-year 2023, so replacing or modernizing your fluorescent lighting is key for your facility’s maintenance plan.

As an authorized Lutron partner, Paratus will plan and implement your facility’s lighting control replacement or upgrade process.

Is the Lutron 3-Wire Ballast Control Obsolete?

The Lutron 3-Wire Ballast Control is the industry-leading lighting control system for large facility fluorescent lighting. Lutron’s 3-Wire Ballast Control is typically used in large facilities like conference and convention centers, training facilities, and hotels.

However, fluorescent lighting is being phased out in favor of LED lighting due to LED’s improved maintenance schedule and reliability, lower operating costs and environmental impact, and higher degree of control. Replacement parts and official support for 3-Wire fluorescent ballasts will become extremely difficult to procure without a modernization plan for your lighting system.

As an authorized Lutron partner, Paratus offers solutions to upgrade or replace your facility’s lighting. We can retrofit your current system using the C-Flex Kit or implement a whole system replacement using Lutron’s powerful modern lighting technology.

Making the switch from fluorescent to LED creates a more pleasant environment, lowers energy costs, and simplifies maintenance. Upgrading or replacing your Lutron 3-Wire Ballast Control will save you time and money now and in the future.
