Two wire 240 volt ballast. It didn't light when I got it so I took the ballast out to see if there was any obvious damage. Turns out it was just the bulb.

Have GE ballasts similar to this in my GE cobraheads-for 120V and two coils on the cores.250W,400W mercury.Two of the ballasts were blown replaced one with a HPS 400W ballast-other with a 400W probe MH ballast.

Be careful using 400W in a 250W fixture. Unless it's a medium sized fixture it's a hazard. The ballast will get very hot and prematurely fail and the lamp won't last long if it's HPS.
