Answer: 
Yes it has the wires attached to the ballast. They're folded up in the package and are quite long. Ordering online you'll be fine. You will need wire nuts.

The RM2S35TP can be replaced by RELB2S40N. This is for 1-2 lamp T12 lamps, not T8.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Inaccurate online description To clarify, this is a ballast suitable for 4' or 3' lamps, not for 4 or 3 lamps. Actual packaging describes as only being for 4 lamps, 4' or 3' long. September 3, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ambistar fluorescent ballast Worked well in our light and solved the problem. Arrived promptly. March 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by well made ,good price i ordered this for my kitchen light fixture, my husband installed it, quick and easy, January 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ballast for Lithonia Lighting Model # DMW 2 54T5HO MVPS90 2-Light 4 ft. White T5 High Output Fluorescent Wet-Light Strip This is the ballast for Lithonia Lighting Model # DMW 2 54T5HO MVPS90 2-Light 4 ft. White T5 High Output Fluorescent Wet-Light Strip. It is not carried in Home Depot stores but the sales people do not know that in any of my local stores. I have wasted a lot of time and money trying to repair these lights as a result. August 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not a Philips Ambistar ballast when ordering online for store pickup The ballast is listed online as a Philips Ambistar. Yet when you pick up in store the part is made by GE. If you look at a list of ballasts check the item number and you will see the GE and Philips one are the same. Other than different brand, the ballast has a some hum to it, but not as noticeable as the original 15 year old ballast. Easy enough to install, pay attention to the wiring diagram. I could not get it to work with just two lamps. October 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by T12 to T8 Upgrade I have two four-lamp fixtures in the kitchen. Each has two magnetic ballasts. A lamp went out and I was out of spares. I decided right away to get ahead of the T12 phase out and do a retro-fit on the existing fixtures. I installed one electronic ballast in each fixture paying attention to wiring as in this case I was converting from Rapid Start to Instant Start. I replaced all the lamps with Phillips T8 Kitchen and Bath mainly for a warmer color. The result is more and better quality light, quieter and cooler. The energy savings is a bonus. By utilizing the existing fixtures in place I saved at least $50 and time. The lights in my kitchen tend to be on for long stretches of time. With installations that have a lot of on-off cycles, consider a Rapid Start Ballast for longer lamp life. June 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great upgrade to my fluorescent fixtures Upgraded to these Phillips Ambistar ballasts and the well rated Philips 4 ft. T8 32-Watt Soft White (3000K) bulbs and significantly improved the light quantity & quality from the two 4-bulb fixtures in my home office... Other benefits: I eliminated the buzz I was getting from the older T12 40-watt bulbs and ballasts... and the energy savings should easily pay for the new ballasts & bulbs within 2 years. Installation was straightforward by just following the diagram on the new ballast. July 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Should have done this years ago Fairly easy project, changed out t-12 bulbs in four bulb fixture now using 3 T-8 bulbs. September 30, 2014
