150 Watt Metal Halide Ballast Kit

150 watt metal halide ballast kits for a complete replacement or retrofit.
Price Each: $88.95

Item Number: BLF14429
150-watt metal halide ballast kits to replace existing core and coil ballasts for this low wattage lamp. These are for standard MH lamps and have everything you need to replace your ballast. These come in multitap voltage of 120, 208, 240 and 277 volts. This is probably one of the most popular ballast kits when it comes to metal halide. It's a mid-range wattage that is used in both small and larger light fixtures depending on the application. The 150-watt version was in energy-saving replacement of the 175 watts but it's not interchangeable with that system. If you do happen to have 175 watts then you need the ballast that is appropriate for that. Also, make sure to check the capacitor as that is often a component that fails over time but doesn't require an entire ballast change. If that capacitor is good and the lamp is good, then it's almost certain that you need to replace the entire ballast and these kits do a great job in getting you everything that you need. This became one of the most popular sizes of metal halide because of its mid-range high light output. It was used in light fixtures that were popular for security or parking ramp lighting, that type of thing. But like all metal halide ballasts, they do wear out eventually and need to be replaced. They are a consumable item and if the light fixture is anywhere from 10 to 15-years old, that's probably what you need to do, a complete replacement of the ballast. Good news is our ballast kit has all the components that you need to replace your ballast and get things working properly again. You have all the hardware the coil, the capacitor, and igniter. With all these different components you're going to be able to restore the lighting system like when it was brand-new. If you have a ballast that's only a few years old and your lamp is not lighting, then what most people have is a bad capacitor. Those are probably the weakest link in the whole ballast, they provide a storage charge to provide that momentary pulse of high voltage to start the arc of the lamp. It has only so many times that he can do this over its life. Although they've gotten more dependable over the past several years, they still do wear out and if you've got something that's new, you probably don't need to replace the whole ballast but probably just the capacitor. We sell those as a separate item and something that's far fewer expensive than a complete ballast kit. But for those of you who have something that's older, you probably just need to replace the whole ballast because like anything electrical that's exposed to a lot of heat, they do deteriorate and go bad. If you're unsure which ballast you need we can help you determine that very easily.

Product features:
- Multi-tap 120, 208, 240, 277 volt.
- For standard 150-watt metal halide lamps.
- All the components you need to replace existing ballasts.

At BuyLightFixtures.com, we have a wide variety of ballast kits including metal halide, high-pressure sodium, and mercury vapor. All of these are in the category of HID lighting and one of the consumable items within that category of lighting is ballasts. There are a number of different things that can go wrong with the ballast over time. It could be something like the capacitor, the igniter or the core and coil itself. With the capacitor, it loses the ability to hold a charge large enough to start the arc of the lamp. Sometimes heat becomes a factor which is typically one of the problems that contribute to a ballast failure. We have all different wattages for various types of metal halide lighting from the very lowest 50 watts all the way up to 1500 watt. Understand that these different ballasts can only be matched with one wattage, they don’t run multiple wattages from the same ballast. Many of you in maintenance or if you’re an electrical contractor know this, but some people that we talk to don’t, so we just want to make that clear if you’re unsure as to whether you need to change the ballast and get one of these kits. Please give us a call or email as we have a lot of expertise in ballast replacement and have probably seen about every different type of problem. Changing a ballast kit is really not too difficult although there are a lot of wires and there are just a few things you need to make sure that you do correctly. You want to make sure all the wiring is correct and that it’s connected to the correct voltage on the ballast.
