Questions & Answers

My old t-12 ballast has a different wiring set up then this T-8 ballast.

My old t-12 ballast had, on the right side, two red an two blue wires. On the left side there is two yellow, a white, and a black wire. On this T-8 are two blue wires and one red on the right side and a black and a white on the left side. Do I run the red wire to the left side and hook that one up with one of the tombstone sockets and then run a jumper wire from that tombstone to the other tombstone?
Asked by: hossridr
White to White neutral Black to Black hot wire the 2 Yellow go to the 1 Red the 2 Red go to 1 Blue the 2 Blue go to 1 Blue the single red will run to both wires on one tomb stone for each bulb one of the blue wires will run to one bulb and connect to both wires on that tomb stone the other blue wire will run to the other bulb and connect to both wires on that tomb stone now your all set to put in your T8 bulbs.

120-Volt Electronic Ballast for 4 ft. 2-Lamp T8 Fixture is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 57.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cut Your Power Bill! I recently swapped out all my old circa 1980s Rapid Start ballasts for florescent light fixtures. In these fixtures not only do the lights get hot but the ballasts get hotter. When in use these old ballasts will burn you if touched! And they leak from what I understand a very toxic black dielectric when they really are ready to fail. Replacing ballasts with the new "Instant on" ballast reduces your heat, makes the fixture work during cold weather and stops all the flickering. Nice product would have liked to have gone directly to LED but was to expensive. Plus I am not so happy yet with led technology as of yet. I replaced about 25 ballasts in my home and garage. You need a few tools and connectors to do this job quickly, namely, a fancy wire striper and some push connectors.

I got a bulk amount of these to replace defective circuit board ballasts, old magnetic and standard ballasts. Works great and easy to use, it should be noted light fixtures with ' no user serviceable parts inside ' applies to everyone except for me. In the picture a lights of America T8 24 inch 17 watt fixture with the ge universal ballast piggy backed onto it and wired into it. I removed the internal circuit board ballast and wired this one in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with Philips T8 Daylight LED tubes When you get a pair of http://www.homedepot.com/p/Philips-4-ft-T8-17-Watt-Daylight-Linear-LED-Light-Bulb-456608/206278132 home and find out they don't work in your existing fixture due to the older-style ballast, this is the one to get. :) Just to be sure before rewiring our laundry room ceiling fixture, I hooked up everything on my kitchen floor to confirm (see picture), after having initially bought the tubes and they didn't work in our "fluorescent luminaire" with its ballast. A much less expensive solution than the "TOGGLED" tubes at about three times the price, even though they don't use a ballast unit at all. I even happened across a YouTube video which showed how I could remove/insert the wires into the 'tombstone' tube sockets without having to cut / splice / solder / wire-nut them into the existing wires, resulting in a very clean upgrade.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Replace your blinky ballast today If you have a more recent (last 10 years) fluorescent lamp fixture, and it takes 2 of the T8 32Watt bulbs, then this will do the trick. Shutoff the power to the fixture (breaker/fuse). Remove the lens, remove the 2 bulbs and remove the metal center cover. Make sure that all your wire colors match exactly (2 blue wires, one red wire - with jumper, and the black and white power wires. Cut off the old wires are close as you can to the old ballast. Remove old ballast and keep the green grounding screw. Mount the new ballast and make sure that it is well grounded. Then strip the new wires and cut and strip the old wires, leaving some overlap so that none of them are too short or pulling. I also added a ferrite core (not included) at the blue/blue/red exit of the ballast in an attempt to reduce the radio interference (RF) noise that this fixture generates. After connecting all the wires, one for one with yellow, tan or smaller wire nuts (not included), then storing away all the wires- re-install the metal cover, making sure that you don't pinch any wires in the metal cover. Install lamps and lens. Restore power and it should come on instantly without flickering. If the circuit breaker trips or fuse blows, then call an electrician (seriously). I would have rated this a 5 if it didn't cause any RF Radio Frequency interference, but it does some. By the way, do NOT buy LED light bulbs to replace your fluorescent bulbs UNTIL they make them differently. The current LED replacements in fluorescent fixtures wipe out not only the entire AM band, SW band, but even FM radio will NOT work in the same building as the LED fluorescent replacement lamps Read the box carefully and you'll see that you're best to keep your fluorescent fixtures working UNTIL they fix their LED replacements so that they don't entirely wipe out your AM, FM bands and TV channels 2-6 (if you're using an antenna). That's all folks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Ballast This is an excellent ballast that I used in two existing fluorescent fixtures to convert them the LED tubes. One can buy a new fluorescent fixture for about $25 dollars that is LED tube compatible, but if you'd like to keep an existing fluorescent fixture, then this is the way to go. You only need to open the existing fixture, remove the old ballast, and wire in the new one. It's very easy to do - the wiring diagram is on the front of the ballast. This ballast drives the tubes separately (parallel connection) so if you have a two-tube fixture and one tube goes bad, the other one will still light up. In the cheap fluorescent fixtures, the tubes are wired serially so both tubes have to be good to function.

It may be that all ballast are manufactured to a set standard, but this one certainly fell right in place where the one that came with the lamp used to be, and all the wires were correctly and similarly color-coded as before. And talk about instant on-- it does just that. For a while I thought I'd have to buy a whole new lamp, at upwards of $100, but for the price of this ballast (at less than $10) I have a whole new lamp as is.
