    Hi guys, need some info. I've managed to source an electronic ballast 150w
    But i've got a few questions

    1> where in durbz can i get the other parts needed eg. bulb and so on

    2> I've read that for an electronic ballast you dont need an igniter and capacitor, is this true?

    3> if true, how will the wiring diagram look like?

    Please guys help me out here

    thanks in advance

    Ok will do the same post in this thread.:whistling:


    Any good electrical shop will be able to help, but for 150w just buy the std ready made fittings.(used in shop front displays) As for wiring should be 4 wires and a earth. the "wavy" ~ should be Live and neutral the other 2 go to the bulb. But post a pic so we can be 100% sure.
