Q:can I substitute a floresant lamp with a LED plug & play lamp with this ballast (AmbiStar 40 watt F40T12 Philips Advance)?
by|Apr 12, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Most likely a plug and play LED tube designed to replace an F40T12 lamp should work with this ballast, but to be certain you would need to check the specific LED tubes compatibility guide to ensure this ballast is listed as compatible.

          Easy to install
          Love the immediate light as you flick the switch. I had replaced my old one many years ago with this model, so when it needed replaced again, I made sure to get the same one. Was easy to install.

          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.

              The rapid start electronic ballasts that I purchased from home depot were exactly what I was looking for and needed. I installed the ballasts and they fit perfectly. I wired them up and turned them on and they work perfectly. I couldn't be more satisfied with the product.
