How the Maxibright iPac Ballast Works:
The Maxibright iPac Metal Cased Ballast converts mains electricity to the correct voltage and current to start-up and power a 400 Watt HPS or MH lamp by using a traditional magnetic core & coil system. High quality circuitry is included and the Maxibright iPac Ballast will not fire-up a hot lamp until it has cooled down, nor will it try to start a faulty lamp. The Maxibright iPac ballast has a strong metal case which is vented for cooler running and reliability but theMaxibright iPac ballast also includes a thermal cut-out - a safety feature which switches off the ballast in the event that it should over-heat.
How to Use the Maxibright iPac Ballast:
The Maxibright iPac Metal Cased Ballast runs warm in use and should be located on a flat, firm, surface (not carpet) in a well ventilated place. The Maxibright iPac Metal Cased Ballast should never be covered and there should be no combustible items in the vicinity. Connect the input lead of your reflector to the output lead of the ballast ensuring the cable is not pulled tight and does not come into contact with anything hot (e.g. lamp, reflector, ballast). Ensure your lamp is tightly screwed into the bulb-holder and that your reflector is at the correct height.
The wattage of your ballast MUST match the wattage of the lamp you are using or there will be a high risk of fires or equipment damage. Always consider the inrush current drawn by a ballast when it is switched on. Your mains supply may trip out if several come on at the same time. Connect the mains plug into an electrical outlet socket and switch on. The ballast will start-up and light the lamp. Please note that in the event of an interruption to the mains supply, the ballast may not be able to restart the lamp until it has cooled back down. Should a faulty lamp be connected then the Maxibright iPac will not attempt to fire it up. In the event that the Maxibright iPac Ballast should overheat it will switch itself off. Always leave the Maxibright iPac Ballast plugged in for at least 3 minutes after switching off to allow it to discharge.
For use with 400 Watt HPS or MH lamps only.
