Product information

During the development and manufacturing of our inverters and converters for rolling stock, the R&D engineers achieve permanent and numerous tests inside our laboratory. Tests and certifications are also performed in independent laboratories and universities. The KST lighting and electronic inverters and converters reach a very high level of quality and reliability which, with their presence on the world maket, ensures them a worldwide reputation.

Lighting with fluorescent tubes

Inverters series for fluorescent tubes

KST Lighting - Inverters Series for Fluorescent TubesThe KST inverters for fluorescent tubes are all developed on the same electronic pattern.

They can vary on the type of case, power, input voltage, type and number of lamps in use, dimming, etc … They are available with different types of connectors (ex : Faston, Wago, …).
