What is the difference between magnetic and electronic ballasts for 70W HPS lamps?
Electronic ballasts are more efficient, produce less heat, and have a longer lifespan than magnetic ballasts.
Can 70W HPS ballasts be used with different voltage input?
Yes, most ballasts have multi-tap options for different voltage input.
What is the maximum distance between the 70W HPS ballast and the lamp?
The maximum recommended distance is usually around 15 to 20 feet.
Can I use a 70W HPS ballast for a 100W HPS lamp?
No, you need to use a ballast specifically designed for the wattage of your lamp.
What is the expected lifespan of a 70W HPS ballast?
Typically, Magnetic ballasts can last up to 5 – 8 years.
Do I need to use a capacitor with a 70W HPS ballast?
Most ballasts have built-in capacitors, so an external capacitor is not necessary.
Can I dim a 70W HPS lamp with ballast?
No, HPS lamps cannot be dimmed.
How do I wire a 70W HPS ballast?
Refer to the manufacturer’s wiring diagram for proper installation.
Is it necessary to ground a 70W HPS ballast?
Yes, grounding is essential for safety and proper operation.
What is the operating temperature range for a 70W HPS ballast?
Most ballasts can operate within a temperature range of -40°C to 50°C.
Can a 70W HPS ballast be used for outdoor lighting?
Yes, but you need to use a weatherproof enclosure to protect the ballast from moisture and dust.
Can I use a 70W HPS ballast with a different type of lamp, such as a metal halide lamp?
No, you need to use a ballast specifically designed for the type of lamp you are using.
