400 Watt Metal Halide Ballast Kit - Five Tap

400 watt metal halide ballast kits for a complete replacement or retrofit.
Price Each: $86.95

Item Number: BLF14432
400-watt metal halide ballast kits to replace existing core and coil ballasts for this popular light bulb. These are for MH400 lamps and have everything you need to replace your ballast. This particular ballast kit covers all the different possibilities that you could have for any kind of voltage with a multi-tap ballast connection. This includes the higher voltages of 277 and 480 that are used mostly in situations such as industrial plants and facilities. You just need to tap it correctly when you get the ballast and most of the time it comes in by default at 277 volts but your electrician needs to check that and make sure that is correct before you make a connection. What makes this nice for most facility managers is that you only need one type of ballast for several different voltages that some facilities have for metal halide lighting. It's a complete set of components including mounting hardware that makes it easier to replace your existing ballast and get your system up and running again. You have everything in this kit including all the hardware, the core and coil and the other components. Once you replace this, it will be like having a new light fixture all over again. the light output will return to normal and it's often good to replace the lamp at the same time. Sometimes people do a group replacement to save on product cost and maintenance costs of course. When working with this potentially higher voltage, you really need a licensed electrician to properly do it and have it be completely safe. It's not something you should do yourself. If you have older light fixtures, like anything 10 years or older, that it might make sense to actually change the light fixtures out completely to something like LED. But if you have something that's fairly new, changing the ballast is still a good way to go. The enemy of almost any electrical component is heated, and that's no different for a ballast. These do deteriorate over time and heat is the common enemy. If you're unsure whether you have this wattage or another one, call us and we can help you figure that out. Keep in mind that 400w metal halide ballast kits are not interchangeable with different wattages. You have to have one wattage with one ballast type that is mated to each other. If you have any questions about this product, please email or call, we want to provide the proper lighting solutions for you.

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.
