General Ballast Operational Characteristics


Installation

-Must match ballast to lamp type [F32t8, F40T12, F96T8/IS, F96T12/IS F96T12/HO]

-The following lamp types will only operate on the following M.E. Ballasts:

F40T10 lamps….F40T12 Ballasts Only

F32T8/ES 48″ 30w, 28w, and 25w Energy Savers….F32T8 Program Start and F32T8 Instant Start Ballasts

F25T8 36″ and F17T8 24″ lamps….F32T8 Program Start and F32T8 Instant Start Ballasts

-M.E. ballasts are designed for 120v or 277v systems.  Must match voltage to correct ballasts.

-Multi-Volt™ Ballasts will work on both voltages.

-Minimum Starting Temperatures:  F32T8…O°F, F40T12…50°F, F96T8/IS…32°F, F96T12…O°F, F96T12/HO…-20°F, Ballasts with any Energy Saving Lamps…60°F

-M.E. recommends using Licensed Electricians for wiring and installing.  Incorrectly hooking up the ballast can short it out and will void the warranty.

-Not for use on dimming circuits.

Troubleshooting

-If  lamps are hard to start even with the new ballasts, check that the ballasts and fixture are grounded properly per electrical code.  Electronic ballasts require a good ground.

-Lamps that are switched on/off more than 2 times/day should be used with Program Strart T8 or Rapid Start T12 ballast for maximum life.

-Extreme ambient temperatures will shorten ballast life and void warranty (below Minimum Starting Temperatures, and over 100°F).
