Lamp Ballasts & Kits

Ballast regulates the current to the lamps and provides sufficient voltage to start the lamps. A Lamp Ballasts Kit gives the contractor everything that they need to get the job done. These kits allow lighting and electrical distributors the opportunity to better manage their inventories and to provide the convenience on one stocking SKU per application instead of two or more.

Fluorescent Ballast High Intensity Discharge HID Ballast

Fluorescent Ballast
The ballast regulates the current to the lamps and provides a sufficient voltage to start the lamps in a fluorescent lighting system. Without a ballast to limit its current, a fluorescent lamp connected directly to a high voltage power source would rapidly and uncontrollably increase its current draw. When the lamp is starting, the ballast must briefly supply high voltage to establish an arc between the two lamp electrodes.

High Intensity Discharge HID Ballast
High Intensity Discharge HID Ballasts are a type of electrical gas-discharge lamp. It produces light by means of an electric arc between tungsten electrodes, housed inside a translucent or transparent fused quartz or fused alumina arc tube.
