Ballasts - Items tagged as "41w-60w"
Ballasts are necessary components of all fluorescent lighting systems. In a fluorescent lighting system, the ballast supplies sufficient voltage to start the lamps and regulates the current to the lamps once they have been started. In high-current settings, ballasts prevent fluorescent lamps from receiving excess current, which would burn them out in a matter of seconds if left uncontrolled. If you are installing fluorescents in your home or business, you'll need to be sure to invest in a ballast that corresponds to the voltage required by your lamps.
