High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps require a 250 watt hps ballast to apply starting voltage to the lamp and establish current flow – an arc – between the lamp electrodes.
Without a ballast, the arc will extinguish or draw increasing current until some circuit element burns up. Ballasts provide system stability by limiting the current that can be drawn.
Core and Coil 250 watt hps ballast is used in over 20% of all HID lighting. Replacement ballast kits contain the appropriate core and coil, a properly rated capacitor and all components required for ballast replacement.
James Lighting, core and coil, HID ballast kit is ideal for a wide variety of lighting applications, including factories, warehouses, gymnasiums and retail stores.
The 250 Watt High pressure sodium Ballast Kit is an electronic device that controls the electrical current to the high pressure sodium lamp, ensuring efficient and stable operation.
What is the input voltage range for 250W HPS ballasts?
Most ballasts have a multi-tap feature that allows for use with different input voltages, typically 120V, 208V, 240V, and 277V.
What is the expected lifespan of a 250W HPS ballast?
Typically, electronic ballasts can last up to 5-8 years.
Can I use a 250W HPS ballast for a 400W HPS lamp?
No, you need to use a ballast specifically designed for the wattage of your lamp.
Can 250W HPS ballasts be used with different types of lamps?
No, you need to use a ballast specifically designed for the type of lamp you are using.
Is it necessary to ground a 250W HPS ballast?
Yes, grounding is essential for safety and proper operation.
What is the operating temperature range for a 250W HPS ballast?
Most ballasts can operate within a temperature range of -40°C to 50°C.
Can a 250W HPS ballast be used for outdoor lighting?
Yes, but you need to use a weatherproof enclosure to protect the ballast from moisture and dust.
What is the difference between magnetic and electronic ballasts for 250W HPS lamps?
Electronic ballasts are more efficient, produce less heat, and have a longer lifespan than magnetic ballasts.
