Fluorescent and HID Ballasts

Maintaining your lighting fixtures is a crucial step in making sure they continue to run at optimum levels. We carry ballasts for both fluorescent and HID fixtures, to help regulate the performance of your fixtures in residential and commercial lighting applications.

A ballast helps to limit the current flowing through the tube in fluorescent lamps. A great way to determine when its time to replace a ballast, is when the fluorescent lights begin to hum, buzz or flicker. Stars and Stripes Lighting carries ballast for compact fluorescent, T5, T8 and T12 fluorescents, from top-quality manufacturers like Halco, Hatch and Keystone.

We also have a large selection of HID ballasts, both high-pressure sodium and metal halide, available here at Stars and Stripes Lighting from brand names like Halco, Hatch, Keystone and Universal. These ballasts are rated to operate at temperatures as low as -40 degrees. Select from core/coil, electronic and F Can ballasts that control an array of lamp types with wattage options ranging from 20W to 1500W, and pulse start lamps with wattages ranging from 50W to 1000W. Order your HID ballast from Stars and Stripes Lighting and get manufacturer's warranties of two years (on Halco, Keystone and Universal ballasts) or even five years (on Hatch brand ballasts). There are multiple input voltages available on these ballast that include 120 VAC, 120-277 VAC, 120/208/240/277V (4-Tap), and 120/208/240/277/480V (5-Tap).
