The Mode ARGOTRAN range has been designed specifically to operate argon pumped cold cathode lighting of 18-25mm in diameter.
Generally, the term cold cathode lighting is used to describe concealed lighting in coffers or cornices and is often used as an indirect uplighter.
Because the light source is concealed a higher brightness is required, as you are not looking directly at a tube. There are three high output models of ARGOTRAN to choose from, a single lamp unit with a 90mA output, a single lamp unit with an 180mA output and a twin lamp unit with two outputs of 90mA each. All models have an output voltage of less than 1kV and are therefore classified as Low Voltage convertors.
The ARGOTRAN is fully dimmable by all types of leading and trailing edge dimming systems and they have short circuit, open circuit and overload protection. Due to their compact size and lightweight, they are suitable to mount next to the tubing within a coffer or cornice, making the installation very quick and easy.INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
The ARGOTRAN operates at High Frequency (32kHz) and it is important that the HT lead capacitance is kept to a minimum. Observe the following:-
Keep all HT leads as short as possible. See maximum cable length chart below.
Use the correct type of HT cable. Do not use screened HT cable types A, D, or E. For HT wiring use either of these low capacitance cables:
i) Type B - Silicone with a minimum diameter of 6.5mm
ii) Type C - 8.0 mm PVC sheathed silicone with a minimum silicone diameter of 6.5 mm.
iii) Type H - 6.5 mm PVC sheathed polyethylene with a minimum polyethylene diameter of 3.0 mm.
Separate all HT cables and tubes of different circuits by at least 30 mm.
Observe the maximum total tube length as specified in the loading charts below.
The Mode ARGOTRAN should be mounted in a well ventilated position and should not be covered by insulation materials. It can be safely mounted onto any metal surface. Ensure that all cables are secured by the cable clamps and that the terminal covers are correctly fitted.
Installation should be in accordance with the relevant National Wiring Regulations and other applicable Regulations. Compliance with the EC EMC and Low Voltage Directives may be invalidated if not used or installed according to the published specification.
