What is a ballast? | Adaptable Ballasts | Lighting Answers ...
Traditionally, ballasts are designed to operate a specific number (usually one to four) and type of lamp (such as a four-foot T8 lamp) at a specific voltage (in North America either 120, 277, or 347 volts). Thus, to find a ballast compatible with a particular luminaire (light fixture), lamp type, lamp quantity, and line voltage must all be known.
