About its compatibility
Maybe it will help somebody who has questions about its compatibility. I use it to replace an old R-140-1-TP that worked with one F30T12. This ballast (RELB-2S40-N model) is way lighter and smaller comparing to the old model

    Perfect fit, dont let the smaller size and less weight fool you, this did indeed directly replace a 10-20 year old ballast with no modifications needed.

    Great
    Worked pretty great. I was able to uninstall the old ballast and install this one successfully. Looking at the picture helped me select the correct ballast.

      I used this to replace an old magnetic ballast, see photo. I was concerned whether the wires needed to be difference. It was the same colors. It made the job so much easier that we did DIY. BTW, the length of the both ballast are also the same and it fit the screws perfectly. I was very luck to find this product. Hopefully it will last. Also attached a photo of the new ballast wiring instructions.

      Just recently had to replace this ballast in one if my kitchen light fixtures. Easy replacement only takes 10 minutes or so from start to finish.

        Doesn't work with much older fixtures
        It turned out that this ballast would not work with the much older fixture that I had. I don't know exactly how old the fixture was, but the house id 103 years old. I returned the ballast to Home Depot for credit and bought a new fixture.

        Direct Replacement For ADVANCE R-2S40-1-TP
        Easy to install with plenty of lead wire length supplied. I verified with the cross-reference linked below. It was great that the case was a direct replacement fit for the original unit, so no fixture modifications were required.
