70 Watt High Pressure Sodium Ballast.
What is the difference between a magnetic and electronic 70W High Pressure Sodium ballast?
Answer: A magnetic ballast uses a coil to regulate current while an electronic ballast uses solid-state components. Electronic ballasts are more energy-efficient and offer better lamp performance.
What is the maximum distance between a 70W High Pressure Sodium ballast and lamp?
Answer: The maximum distance between a 70W HPS ballast and lamp can vary depending on the specific ballast and lamp, but it is generally around 15-20 feet.
Can a 70W High Pressure Sodium ballast be used with a 100W HPS lamp?
Answer: No, a 70W HPS ballast is specifically designed for use with 70W HPS lamps only.
What is the typical lifespan of a 70W HPS ballast?
Answer: The lifespan of a 70W HPS ballast can vary, but it is generally around 5-7 years.
How do I know if my 70W HPS ballast is malfunctioning?
Answer: Signs of a malfunctioning 70W HPS ballast include flickering or dimming lights, buzzing sounds, and an overheated ballast.
What is the power factor of a 70W High Pressure Sodium ballast?
Answer: The power factor of a 70W High Pressure Sodium ballast can vary, but it is typically around 0.9.
What is the starting method of a 70W HPS ballast?
Answer: Most 70W HPS ballasts use a high-frequency electronic starting method.
Is a 70W High Pressure Sodium ballast suitable for outdoor use?
Answer: Yes, a 70W HPS ballast is suitable for outdoor use as long as it is installed in a weatherproof enclosure.
What is the input voltage range for a 70W HPS ballast?
Answer: The input voltage range for a 70W HPS ballast can vary depending on the specific ballast, but it is generally around 120-277V.
