When purchasing a ballast, you'll need to read the type of lamps it's designed for, how many lamps it operates, and the wattage the tube runs on. Choosing the right ballast for a lamp will optimize the light output and life of the bulb. When needing to replace your old ballast, read what kind of ballast it is and find a new ballast that operates for the same specifications.
There are different kinds of ballast. Depending on the light technology your light have, you need different type of ballasts. The most common ballasts are operating with fluorescent lamps, and the two kinds of ballast are: Conventional (EM) and Electronic (HF).
|Conventional (EM)||Electronic (HF)|
|EM = Electromagnetic ballast||HF = High Frequency ballast|
|With starter (visible)||Without starter (not visible)|
|Flickers in turn on process||Instant on, no flickering|
