Looking at quoting for a industrial unit and am intending to use high frequency florescent battens as opposed to conventional switched start ones.

Are both types treated the same in terms of power factor calcs, or is there a different correction value for the H/F type?

I don't know if it's universal, but the PF on the HF electronic ballasts I've used as been pretty good - about 0.97 from memory - and the overall power consumption is no more than the total tube rating.

And with H/F there is no stroboscopic issues to be concerned with if there is rotating machinery
