Mercury Vapor Ballast Kits

Mercury vapor ballast kits are the components which run MV lighting systems. They start the lamp and keep it operating through the proper application of the voltages and maintaining the life of the lamp. It's typically located in within the enclosure of the light fixture made for each individual wattage of mercury vapor. These kits are supplied with everything you need to replace your ballast. Call us if you have the questions about any of the ballasts you see here or something that you might have that you don't see listed.

Some general information.
These mercury vapor ballast kits also come with all the hardware you need for mounting because some situations will require a slight remounting. It's not always the case, but everything you need is made available in the kit. When you are replacing the ballast be aware of the tap voltage that you're using and make sure that's correct on the incoming side. There are a lot of wires, and that can seem a little daunting, but if you fall the schematic step-by-step, it's a pretty straightforward replacement. Any licensed electrician is going to know how to do this well and can be trusted to get the light working again.

Ballasts are an essential component.
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 some 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 mercury vapor lighting from the very lowest 50 watts all the way up to 1000 watt. Understand that these different ballasts can only be matched with one wattage, they don’t run multiple wattages from the same ballast.

Some ideas to save money.
If you have many of these ballasts 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 light 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 light 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 put in existing data compared to what you might be changing it to. It will not only tell you how much money and energy are going to save, but it will also show you how fast the payback is going to be for your particular situation. Keep in mind that the more hours per day that you run any of these light fixtures, the faster the payback will be. If there are any electric utility rebate incentives that you could apply, you have a place to put those in as well, and that will reduce the payback even further. It’s a good time to take a look at that you have an older type of lighting system that you’re doing a lot of maintenance on.
