But it does make sense, because it will give you a better connection to ground, simply bolting a painted enclosed ballast might not give you the ideal connection if the sparky was to forget a star washer or correct torque on the bolts.. I like the fact most of the ballasts in the UK are fully enclosed, all we seem to get over here is open core and coil ballasts..

Closed ballasts would definitely make my life easier... they'd definitely be easier to put into home made lights than the ones we got... I do like the looks of those GE ballasts with the external windings though.

Absolutely, I approve of the terminal being present, I was just remarking it seems to be a rather rare occurrence, I've not seen very many ballasts that have them.

I agree on closed v open ballasts though, I don't like those open ones you seem to get over there at all.

I have a 35/55w SOX version of this ballast (although branded Parmar/Venture, it looks identical), which has the same earth terminal.
It does make it much easier to connect the earth up to the ballast.

I don't think any of the ballasts I have are fitted with any kind of an earth terminal, except for the Philips L4045 leak transformer, which has a threaded bolt attached with a nut and washers. None of them have the choc-block terminals like this one.

I think the ballast in my AC Ford AC850 (80w MBF) is the same as this, with a choc block earth terminal, and I think the GEC Z1616P (35/55w SOX) ballasts have a nut and bolt earth onto the casing.
