In addition to the necessary lighting such as bulbs, fixtures, lamps, transformers and ballasts, Stars and Stripes Lighting carries a full-line of electrical accessories and components that help with installation or upgrade the lighting fixtures you currently own. Our inventory of accessories and components that are a must have by homeowners and contractors include, ballast checkers, fixture hangers and cords, disconnects, light meters, capacitors and ignitors, tube guards, sockets and more.
To facilitate lighting audits, the compact Advance electronic versus magnetic ballast checker is a handheld tool that can classify a ballast's technology type when confirming its status and indicate which lighting upgrades would be most suitable. When the ballast checker is pointed at a fixture for identification, it turns green if the light source is powered with a high-frequency electronic ballast, and will turn orange if it is powered with a magnetic ballast.
Repair the damaged parts of your ballast kit without having to purchase a new system with our large selection of HID capacitors, starters and ignitors in stock at Stars and Stripes Lighting. This helps to ensure that your ballast will provide efficient lighting and will startup when called upon even in very cold temperatures. Top brands like Keystone offer a large selection of capacitors and starters for either metal halide or high-pressure sodium form, in a wide array of wattages and input voltages. Make installation easy with cords and hangers for fixtures, WAGO Luminaire Disconnect Connector Sockets for feedthrough of power to multiple ballasts in a fixture, and tube guards for T8 and T12 provide an alternative solution to expensive coated lamps. At Stars and Stripes Lighting, we keep a large inventory of these components in-stock to make your project seamlessly move along without a hitch.
