[APD] Electronic ballasts
I'm coming out of lurking mode to ask a question about Magnetek Triad
Electronic ballasts. I am thinking of retrofitting my AGA twin tube strip
light -36 inch T-8- to a triple tube electronic fixture. The ballast
recommended by my companies supplier is: B332I120RH for $22.00. This ballast
will run three F25T8 lamps. Voltage 120. Line current 0.60 Amps. Input Power
68 watts. Power Factor >.95. Ballast Factor 0.92. Ballast Efficiency Factor
1.35. THD <20%. Min. Start Temp 0 F. 9.5 inch long, 2.40 inch wide, 1.55
The question is: how does this compare with ballasts available in LFS that
cost in the range of $50 to $80? I don't want to mention any brand names. Am
I really getting something worthwhile by buying one sold for the Marine
hobby compared to this Magnetek Triad ballast?
The next question is: will Triton T8 lamps light up and work properly with
an electronic ballast? I am currently using them on the AGA which has
magnetic ballasts and starters.
