High pressure sodium ballast kits are often needed to replace ballasts that have gone bad. You get everything you see here to make a complete repair. The core and coil and ignitor with a schematic diagram. These come in multitap voltage of 120, 208, 240, 277 volts and 480 volts in some cases. These will work with GE, Sylvania, Philips or any other HPS lamp. High pressure sodium ballast kits are the proper replacement when a simple lamp change yields no result. Known for dependability and superior efficiency, our High Intensity Discharge (HID) ballasts are perfectly suited for even the most demanding HID lighting applications.

High Pressure Sodium Ballast Kit
Is your HPS ballast going bad?
There's a simple way to know whether you have a bad light bulb or the ballast is going out. Some people think that when the HPS bulb cycles on and off that the ballast may be going bad. That is not the case; it just means that the bulb needs to be replaced. But if you see that the lights are not coming on at all, then you need to do a ballast kit replacement. So keep that in mind as it will save you a lot of money and time not having to replace the ballast in that situation. But if the light's dead after you've replaced the bulb, then you need to replace the ballast. These HPS ballasts come with everything you need including the hardware to remount the ballast kit within the light fixture that you have now and the capacitors and ignitors. It doesn’t come with the sodium lamp. However, that needs to be purchased separately. Some of the most common wattages that are used today are the 250 watts, 400 watts and 1000 watt high-pressure sodium ballasts. These are most often used in commercial outdoor lighting applications and is typical for many types of industrial applications. Lighting up in HID system is much different than fluorescent bulbs or LED. It requires a very high voltage to get the arc started and needed to have proper regulation for proper operation. There are still many HPS lighting fixtures used every day, and the ballast is a consumable item. Several things can cause the ballast to go out, but the main one is heated, which can cause different components to fail over time. And there is a lot of heat that is associated with an HID lighting system like high-pressure sodium. Maintenance is always one of the big issues with high-pressure sodium; it seems to be a system that needs more attention than other types of lighting. With the components and the high voltages that are sometimes a part of it, there are just more things in the system that can fail. It is an admittedly older style of lighting but still very practical for roadways, parking lots and building security.
