A 100 Watt Metal Halide Ballast kit is an electronic device used to regulate and control the flow of electrical current to a 100-watt metal halide lamp. The ballast provides the initial surge of electricity required to start the lamp and then regulates the current to maintain stable operation.
James Lighting focuses not only on metal halide ballasts. James Lighting designs and manufactures lighting systems that are energy efficient, use less chemicals and have extended life. James Lighting is constantly enhancing existing 100 Watt Metal Halide Ballast offerings and developing new lighting solutions.
James Lighting products are designed to have the highest quality of light, creating a safe and productive environment for those who use them.

We recommend all ballast servicing be done by a certified electrician. Improper wiring is unsafe and can damage the lamp and/or ballast kit. metal halide ballast features a 4-tap voltage input for compatibility from 120 to 277 volts.
For use with 100 watt lamps, this magnetic HID ballast boasts a high-power factor of 90%, ensuring maximum efficiency. A temperature rating of 212 degrees F makes the ballast suitable for mounting in warehouses and manufacturing facilities where high heat may be an issue. Includes dry capacitor and bracket kit.
100W High Intensity Discharge (HID) lamps require a 100 Watt Metal Halide 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.
100 Watt Metal Halide Ballast provides system stability by limiting the current that can be drawn.
