250 watt metal halide ballast kits for a complete replacement or retrofit.
Price Each: $85.95

Item Number: BLF14431
250-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, 277 and 480 volt. What makes this ballast kit so great is that you don't have to have a different ballast just because you may have a few very high-voltage light fixtures in your facility. This one will cover all the bases and you can keep just one on the shelf at any time. Make sure your electrician checks the voltage you have and wires it correctly to the new ballast kit. Once it's done, it's like having a whole new light fixture because the light output it's going to be great and you're not can have any problems with any kind of failure. This wattage is very common for street lighting and other types of parking lot lighting. Typically most parking lots and streets don't need a really high wattage, they just need something that is adequate with a very even amount of light. As I've mentioned on some other products, sometimes if the ballast that you have isn't that old, maybe you just need a capacitor changed and not the whole ballast. But if what you have is old and burned out, you need to replace the whole ballast with one of these kits which has everything that you need. It has all the hardware and components to replace your ballast and get everything working again properly. Most people have a licensed electrician install this for them because it can be a little tricky as far as the wiring goes. Keep in mind that these ballasts are not interchangeable, in other words, they are made for one specific wattage. So if you have this 250-watt bulb that you're trying to light, then you have to have a ballast that is made for that specifically. If you have any questions as to which one you have or need help determining what you need, you can always give us a call or email and we can help you with that information. We've seen just about everything and we can ask you a few questions that should get the issue resolved. It's still a great way to have a lot of light with something that's very energy-efficient.

Product features:
- Multi-tap 120, 208, 240, 277, 480 volt.
- For standard 250-watt metal halide lamps.
- All the components you need to replace existing ballasts.

At, 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.
