Need a ballast to start up your setup? No worries! The Maxibright Compact Magnetic Ballast guarantees you a quality piece for excellent value! Ideal for beginners or for use just as a spare or backup unit!
All internal components have been resin-coated to ensure you have a smooth and silent performance in every case. And speaking of the case, it has been beautifully injection-moulded to be resilient to any situation, and as a bonus, the Maxibright Compact Magnetic Ballast has been designed to be incredibly compact and compatible with both HPS and MH type lamps!
The simplistic design of the Maxibright Compact Magnetic Ballast allows it to convert mains electricity to both the correct voltage and current, enabling it to power a 250, 600 or 1000 Watt HPS or MH lamp with ease.
Please double-check the wattage of the lamp you are using matches the wattage of the ballast as if there is a discrepancy then there is a risk of fire and/or damage to your equipment. It’s important to note that when a ballast is first switched on, there is a large inrush of electricity and if enough ballasts are switched on at once, it may short the mains supply. It should be noted that the Maxibright Compact Magnetic Ballast generates some heat during use and should not be used on a carpet and should always be used only in a well-ventilated location. We recommend avoiding covering the unit and keeping any combustible items well clear of it for safety. In the event of an interruption to the mains supply, it is possible that the lamp will not be able to be restarted until the ballast has cooled down, so please allow it some time to cool.
To use, simply connect the input lead of your reflector to the output lead of the ballast. You should ensure that there is some slack in the cable and that the lamp is securely screwed into the bulb-holder, and make sure that your reflector is set at an appropriate height. Next, connect up the mains plug into an electrical outlet and you are all ready to go!
