Questions with 400w ballast « on: April 29, 2024, 12:28:30 PM » Author: LightsAreBright27
This ballast says it's for 400w MH and HPS lamps. It says no ignitor required but also says 'only for philips and osram lamps'. I am confused about if it would run these lamps (I think pulse start).
Update- there is an ignitor inside it!

This is definitely fun, as the box is marked 'no ignitor' while there is one inside ;)

Do you have some junk 400W HPS lamp to test run the ballast and measure the exact lamp current?

Don't have any junk lamps (also no 400w HPS). I will be going day after tomorrow to the same shop and ask for details and to test it (as well as get a capacitor).

Update- the shop said 400w MH or HPS can be run on this ballast.
