HID electronic ballasts are an important part of a lighting system. Used to get the most out of a hydroponic growing system or a similar lighting setup, these small tools are used to help high-intensity discharge bulbs operate at maximum efficiency.
When installed, the HID electronic ballast allows the production of the voltage needed to start and operate a lamp. It does this by borrowing available voltage from an electrical outlet and increasing it to provide a high enough voltage pulse to turn a lamp on. Once the lamp is operating, the HID electronic ballast serves to maintain the electrical arc inside of the lamp according to the parameters set forth by the lamp’s manufacturer. It also regulates voltage and helps maintain the lamp’s illumination by regulating variations in supplied voltage.
HID electronic ballasts also serve to increase the lifespan of a lamp. This is because, as a lamp ages, it often begins to require increased voltage to operate efficiently. This tiny tool takes care of that by regulating the voltage coming from the outlet to maintain the arc needed to provide illumination. Keep in mind, though, that if the lamp ages to a point that it requires a voltage that is no longer safe, this tool will initiate its shutdown, to ensure safety and check fire danger. In these cases, a lamp may start up and continue to shut down, which would signal to you that the lamp needs to be replaced.
