Product features:
- Multi-tap voltage.
- For pulse start metal halide lamps.

General information.
These pulse start ballasts also come with all the hardware you need for mounting because some situations will require a slight remounting. One of the advantages to using a pulse start metal halide HID lamp is that it has a faster restrike time, a matter of a couple of minutes instead of 10 minutes after the arc tube cools down during an intermittent power outage or some other kind of power sag. It also happens to be more energy-efficient with more lumens per watt, and so a lot of people moved to this type of light replacing old metal halides. It’s a higher light output also made it an attractive choice for many people looking to upgrade with new lighting fixtures. We carry this replacement component for any pulse start lighting fixture that you may have. If you’re unsure about which one you have, you can always look at the label that’s on the ballast itself. If you don’t have a label, you can always call us, and we can help you determine whether you have that type of ballast.

Ballasts are an essential component.
At, we have a wide variety of ballasts 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 ballasts. There are some 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 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 want to make that clear if you’re unsure as to whether you need to change the ballast and get one of theses. 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 is 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.

Some ideas to save money.
If you have many of these ballasts or metal halide lamps going out at the same time, it might be time to consider going to a more efficient source of LED lighting with either a simple retrofit or a complete lighting fixture change. There’s never been a better time to take advantage of electric utility rebates and the prices on these products that we have never been more reasonable. The performance is excellent, and you could have lighting fixtures that no longer need a ballast, and that’s one less thing to have in a maintenance program. If you would like to know how much money you can save by switching to more efficient LED lighting, we have a free downloadable XL spreadsheet on the left-hand column of our website. It’s easy to use, and all you have to do is input existing data compared to what you might be changing.
