1. Proper starting voltage to the lamp: The ballast must
supply adequate starting or striking voltage to the lamp
in order to ionize the gas and establish an arc between
the lamp filaments.
Incandescent lamps operate by passing current through a
tungsten filament to produce light. The filament itself limits
the amount of current flowing through the lamp by its own
resistance. Unlike incandescent lighting, fluorescent and
HID lamps produce light by ionizing gas within a light
producing chamber. For a fluorescent lamp, this chamber
is usually a glass tube. For HID lamps, this chamber is
usually a quartz glass or ceramic material. In both cases
the ionized gas or arc has a negative resistance characteristic that causes the arc to draw more and more current as
the arc forms. If this current were not limited, the lamp
would quickly fail, (extinguish). Because of this negative
resistance, a ballast is used to regulate, (limit) the lamp
current and power for proper operation.

2. For fluorescent lamps only, the ballast may provide
filament (coil) heating: The ballast supplies the correct
voltage to the lamp cathodes or filaments. This warms
the lamp cathodes to the proper temperature to facilitate lamp starting. This is important to achieve rated
lamp life.
3. Limit lamp current: The ballast must limit the current
and control the power to the lamp once the start cycle
is complete.

A ballast typically provides three main
functions:
whenever needed.
Rapid Start Ballasts
Ballast Components
SYLVANIA magnetic fluorescent ballasts are produced with
high quality components for reliable performance. These
components include:
• A sturdy steel case
• A dry capacitor: contained in high power factor
ballasts or for lamp regulation
• Steel laminations: high grade steel laminations to
minimize losses
• Coils: tightly wound for reliable performance and
quiet operation
• Thermal Protector: to protect against overheating of
the ballast and fixture
• Potting compound — reduces the audible noise and
helps cool the ballast
• Lead wires which are attached to the coils
Operate the popular
T12, T10 and T8 lamps
with a smooth start to
ensure optimal
performance. A rapid
start ballast starts a
lamp by simultaneously
applying current to both
lamp cathodes and voltage across the lamp. This automatic
heating of the lamp cathodes removes the need for a
separate starter used in
pre-heat lamp types and
eliminates the flicker
associated with pre-heat
start ballasts.
HO and VHO
Ballasts
HO and VHO ballasts
are rapid start T12
ballasts designed to operate the High Output, (800 mA
lamps) and Very High Output, (1500 mA lamps) T12 lamps
popular in the retail and industrial environments. These
ballasts are typically larger versions of the standard F-Can
to handle the higher power loads of these systems.
HO Sign
Ballasts
New T12 high
output (HO)
magnetic ballasts
for sign applications

for the sign
business. Sign
ballasts typically operate 2-6 lamps and are selected by
quantity of lamps to operate and the lineal footage of lamps
used by the ballast.

Circline Ballasts
SYLVANIA Circline
ballasts are rapid start
ballasts designed to
operate T9 Circline
lamps. A separate
starter is not required
for these ballasts.
Slimline Ballasts
— Instant Start
Slimline ballasts are
designed for use with
single pin T12 lamps
and do not require
separate starters.
Slimline ballasts apply
a much higher voltage
across the lamp,
which starts the lamp
instantly and does not
require the use of cathode heating. Slimline lamps are
specially constructed to utilize this starting method, and
provide good system efficacy because no power is used to
heat the coils.
Trigger Start
Ballasts
The circuit for this
type of ballast is
used to eliminate
the starter and start
a pre-heat lamp
almost instantly. In
this circuit, each
electrode is
connected to a
separate winding
within the ballast.
These ballasts
operate pre-heat
style lamp types
and are available in
standard and
thermally protected
models. Pre-heat
ballasts first apply
a small amount of
current to the lamp cathodes, then once the cathodes have
been properly pre-heated, a voltage is applied to start the
lamp. Because of this two step starting process, the
ballast requires the use of a starter. The starter can be built
into the ballast or wired into the circuit as a separate item.
The ballast manufacturing date and location is printed on all
SYLVANIA magnetic fluorescent product labels above the
bar code.
The ballast case and fixture must always be grounded. The
grounding helps assure safety, proper lamp starting, and
acceptable EMI/RFI performance. Install ballast in accordance with national and local electrical codes.
Certifications
Depicts ballast is certified by the Canadian
Standards Association in accordance with
CAN/CSA - 22.2 No. 74-92.
Indicates SYLVANIA ballast complies with
National Energy Conservation Amendments of
1988 (unless otherwise indicated).
Indicates SYLVANIA ballast complies with
Canadian Energy Standards (unless otherwise
indicated).
The National Electrical Code, (NEC) stipulates that all indoor
fluorescent fixtures must contain a thermal protector in the
ballast, except for simple reactor ballasts. SYLVANIA
magnetic fluorescent ballasts, where required, contain a UL
approved Class P automatic resetting thermal protector. This
thermal protector will interrupt the power supply to the ballast
if the maximum ballast temperature is exceeded, thereby
minimizing potential overheating of the ballast and fixture.
Once the internal temperature is returned to normal, the
thermal protector will reset and resume operation of the
ballast. If the cause of the overheating is not corrected, the
ballast may again overheat and trip the thermal protector and
continue this cycle until the heat problem is mitigated.

Lamp starting can also be effected by polarity and connecting
of the appropriate ballast lead wires. To ensure proper starting,
the grounded power supply must be connected to the white
ballast lead and the hot line wire to the black ballast lead wire.
Similar to other electrical devices, heat is generated from a
fluorescent magnetic ballast during normal operation. A
fluorescent magnetic ballast using class A insulation is
required by UL to have a maximum ballast case temperature
of 90°C at its hottest point and an internal coil temperature
not to exceed 105°C. If these temperatures are exceeded,
ballast life will be reduced. Fixture ventilation and proper
ballast installation are important in maintaining appropriate
ballast temperatures.
Audible Noise
The noise emitted from a ballast may be an important consideration in the selection of a ballast. To assist in the proper
selection of a magnetic fluorescent ballast all ballasts are given
a sound rating. SYLVANIA magnetic fluorescent ballasts sound
ratings range from A to D with A being the quietest. The sound
rating can be found on all SYLVANIA product labels.
Factors that contribute directly to the characteristic hum of
magnetic ballasts are:
Safety
• the basic circuitry and construction
Ballasts must be installed and operated in accordance with
the National Electric Code (NEC), Underwriters Laboratories
Inc. (UL) requirements, and all applicable codes and regulations. Since it is possible to come in contact with potentially
hazardous voltages, only qualified personnel should perform
ballast installation. All installation, inspection, and maintenance of lighting fixtures must be performed with power to
the fixture turned off.
• the component material
• the manufacturing process
• installation techniques of the ballast to the luminaire
A definite correlation exists between ballast audibility and
such indirect variables as fixture application, fixture location,
and the ambient room noise levels which are, of course
dependent on room acoustics. Care should be taken when
mounting the ballast to reduce vibration.

Socket Wiring/Lamp Connection
For proper lamp and ballast operation, use good quality
lamp sockets and ensure they are properly connected.
Always wire the ballast according to wiring diagram shown
on the ballast label. Some applications may not require the
use of all the ballast output leads, therefore all unconnected leads should be capped individually.
Low Temperature Operation
There are two limiting considerations for low temperature
operation:
sufficiently to operate the lamp. If the ambient temperature is not sufficient, enclosed fixtures or tube guards
are recommended.
Voltage Tolerances
To ensure proper application, each SYLVANIA magnetic
fluorescent ballast is designed to operate at the input
voltage identified on the ballast and carton label. Input
voltages that are too high can reduce lamp and ballast life.
If input voltage is too low, unpredictable starting may
occur and lamp life will be reduced. The typical tolerances
for input voltage are +/-10%.
1. The ability of the lamp to start at the required ambient
temperature: the starting temperature for a fluorescent
lamp is dependent upon the specific lamp type and the
ballast itself. For example: all SYLVANIA HO and VHO
magnetic ballast have the capability to start cold
temperature rated fluorescent lamps down to -20°F.
However, the typical starting temperature for an energy
saving HO or VHO lamp is 60°F. Other ballast types may
have different starting temperatures.
2. The light output of a fluorescent lamp varies considerably with the temperature of the bulb wall: typically
the lower the ambient temperature for a fluorescent
lamp the less light output will be generated by the lamp.
After starting, the bulb wall temperature should increase

To operate Metal Halide,
Pulse Start Metal Halide, High
Pressure Sodium and Mercury Vapor lamps in a
variety of applications, SYLVANIA has enhanced the
Magnetic HID Ballast offering with the new SUPER5 Kit,
Pulse Start Core & Coil, F-Can and Indoor Enclosed
ballasts. The combination of SYLVANIA lamps
and ballasts forms a complete
lighting system.
HID Ballast Types
Core & Coil
Magnetic High Intensity Discharge (HID) Ballasts
An HID ballast must perform two basic
functions for the lamp:
1. Starting: The ballast must provide proper voltage
to start the lamp. For some lamp types the input
voltage alone is sufficient to start the lamp. Other
lamp types require the input voltage to the ballast
to be stepped up or down to the required voltage.
While a third type of lamp utilizes an ignitor to help
start the lamp.
2. Current Regulation: Once the lamp has started,
the ballast must maintain a specific current to the
lamp to ensure proper operation throughout its life.
Each type of HID lamps, (metal halide, mercury vapor and
high pressure sodium) have a slightly different starting
voltage, lamp voltage and current characteristics that
necessitate the use of different ballast designs.
Lamp starting, operation and end of life are outlined by lamp
manufacturers and in accordance with ANSI specification
C82.4. For OSRAM SYLVANIA data, see our latest revisions:
Product Information Specification Guides:
• Metal Halide (HID-017),
• High Pressure Sodium (HID-006),
Engineering Bulletins:
• Metal Halide (HID-010),
• High Pressure Sodium (HID-009)
• Mercury Vapor (SFA-HID-MEREB-0696)
They are on our website at www.sylvania.com or
www.mysylvania.com.
Incandescent lamps operate by passing current through a
tungsten filament to produce light. The filament itself limits the
38
amount of current flowing through the lamp by its own
resistance. However, HID lamps produce light by ionizing gas
within an arc tube. The arc tube has a negative resistance
characteristic that causes the arc to draw more and more
current as the arc forms and heats up. If this current were not
limited, the lamp would eventually extinguish. Because of this
negative resistance, a ballast is used to regulate, (limit) the
lamp current and power for proper operation.
HID lighting is best known for its outdoor applications
such as street, roadway, building, parking lot and security
lighting. However, it is increasingly being used in retail,
warehouse and superstore settings.
METALARC® Pulse Start Lamps
The advanced arc tube design of SYLVANIA
METALARC PULSE START metal halide
lamps makes them superior to standard
metal halide probe start lamps. Initial lumen
output levels are similar to standard lamps, but maintained
lumen levels can be up to 30% higher. METALARC PULSE
START lamp life can be up to two times the life of standard
lamps and these high performance lamps reduce color
temperature shift over the life of the lamp by as much as
400K. Other performance enhancements include reaching
90% of full light output significantly earlier than standard
lamps and reducing hot restrike time up to 60%.
HID Lamps
SYLVANIA METALARC®
Metal Halide and LUMALUX®
High Pressure Sodium lamps
represent some of the most
energy efficient, long-life light
sources currently available.
METALARC® Probe Start Lamps
These metal halide lamps provide high output and high
efficacy that are available in a wide range of wattages and
colors. OSRAM SYLVANIA Metal Halide lamps allow
designers increased flexibility to optimize their lighting
solution while holding down costs. METALARC lamps have
significantly higher efficacy than mercury vapor or incandescent products and have considerably better CRI than
mercury vapor and high pressure sodium lamps.
LUMALUX® High Pressure Sodium
SYLVANIA high pressure sodium (HPS) lamps offer higher
efficacies than most other light sources, providing up to 140
lumens per watt. Another feature of LUMALUX lamps is the
long life, (up to 24,000 hours) compared to most traditional
light sources. A further improvement in HPS lamp life was
achieved by LUMALUX PLUS/ECO® and LUMALUX
STANDBY lamps. These lamps exceed the life of standard
HPS lamps up to 25% and 67% respectively.
Mercury Vapor
SYLVANIA Mercury Vapor lamps are designed primarily for use
in general lighting applications where good efficiency and long
life are desired with moderate color rendering requirements.
The core and coil ballast is the most
common type and it is comprised of
copper coils mounted on electrical grade
steel laminations. Capacitors, which are
used for either lamp regulation or power
factor correction may be added along
with ignitors which may be used to help
start the families of Pulse Start lamps.
Core and coil ballasts are typically UL
Recognized and therefore must be enclosed in a luminaire.
This is required for the luminaire to receive UL Listing and
meet CSA requirements. Class H insulation is most
commonly used in core and coil ballasts which permits a
maximum coil hot spot temperature of 180°C.
F-Can
SYLVANIA F-Can
ballasts are designed
for indoor, low noise
applications and utilize
the familiar fluorescent
type ballast cans.
Since the F-Can style
ballasts are typically
used indoors within a
luminaire, the ballast
input voltage is limited
to 120 and 277 volts. Each ballast has a power factor
correcting capacitor within the ballast case and an automatically re-setting thermal protector that disconnects power to
the ballast in the event of excess heat within the ballast. For
ballasts such as HPS and pulse start metal halide, the
ignitor is built into the ballast. SYLVANIA F-Can ballasts
operate a range of metal halide, pulse start metal halide and
high pressure sodium lamps. These ballasts are UL listed.

To operate Metal Halide,
Pulse Start Metal Halide, High
Pressure Sodium and Mercury Vapor lamps in a
variety of applications, SYLVANIA has enhanced the
Magnetic HID Ballast offering with the new SUPER5 Kit,
Pulse Start Core & Coil, F-Can and Indoor Enclosed
ballasts. The combination of SYLVANIA lamps
and ballasts forms a complete
lighting system.
HID Ballast Types
Core & Coil
METALARC® Pulse Start Lamps
The advanced arc tube design of SYLVANIA
METALARC PULSE START metal halide
lamps makes them superior to standard
metal halide probe start lamps. Initial lumen
output levels are similar to standard lamps, but maintained
lumen levels can be up to 30% higher. METALARC PULSE
START lamp life can be up to two times the life of standard
lamps and these high performance lamps reduce color
temperature shift over the life of the lamp by as much as
400K. Other performance enhancements include reaching
90% of full light output significantly earlier than standard
lamps and reducing hot restrike time up to 60%.
LUMALUX® High Pressure Sodium
SYLVANIA high pressure sodium (HPS) lamps offer higher
efficacies than most other light sources, providing up to 140
lumens per watt. Another feature of LUMALUX lamps is the
long life, (up to 24,000 hours) compared to most traditional
light sources. A further improvement in HPS lamp life was
achieved by LUMALUX PLUS/ECO® and LUMALUX
STANDBY lamps. These lamps exceed the life of standard
HPS lamps up to 25% and 67% respectively.
Mercury Vapor
SYLVANIA Mercury Vapor lamps are designed primarily for use in
general lighting applications where good efficiency and long life
are desired with moderate color rendering requirements. Mercury
Vapor Lamp ballasts cannot be manufactured after January 1,
2008 as per the new Energy Policy Act of 2005 (EPAct 2005).
The core and coil ballast is the most
common type and it is comprised of
copper coils mounted on electrical grade
steel laminations. Capacitors, which are
used for either lamp regulation or power
factor correction may be added along
with ignitors which may be used to help
start the families of Pulse Start lamps.
Core and coil ballasts are typically UL
Recognized and therefore must be enclosed in a luminaire.
This is required for the luminaire to receive UL Listing and
meet CSA requirements. Class H insulation is most
commonly used in core and coil ballasts which permits a
maximum coil hot spot temperature of 180°C.
F-Can
SYLVANIA F-Can
ballasts are designed
for indoor, low noise
applications and utilize
the familiar fluorescent

contain a core & coil ballast and are mounted and
encased in a heat dissipating resin in a metal
enclosure. The capacitor and ignitor, when
required are located within a separate
compartment in the enclosure. Knockouts are on
the ballast case to allow for electrical hookup.
These ballasts are UL listed.
Indoor Enclosed
Indoor Enclosed ballasts are used in applications where remote mounting of the
ballast from the fixture is required, such as
in high bay lighting found in factories.
The remote location allows the ballasts to
be operated in a cooler ambient

Ballast Characteristics
Lamp Starting
Mercury Vapor Lamps (Probe Start)
When starting a mercury vapor lamp, voltage is applied by
the ballast between the main electrode and the adjacent
starting electrode to create an initial ionization. Once sufficient ionization occurs, an arc can then form between the
two main electrodes at each end of the arc tube. The ballast
must then supply sufficient current during the startup to
allow the lamp to reach full stabilization in an appropriate
period of time.
Metal Halide Lamps (Probe Start)
A standard, probe start metal halide lamp uses the same
starting principle as a mercury vapor lamp, but differs significantly in starting requirements and characteristics. Because
of the presence of metal iodides in the arc tube, the voltage
required to start a metal halide lamp is much higher than a
mercury vapor lamp.
Metal Halide Lamps (Pulse Start)
The low-wattage metal halide lamps, (150 watts and lower)
and the higher wattage pulse start metal halide lamp are
designed without a starting electrode and thus require an
external ignitor in the ballast circuit. This ignitor provides
about 4kV pulse to start the lamp by ionizing the gas
between the two main electrodes within the arc tube and
initiating the arc. For additional information on starting metal
halide and pulse start metal halide lamps see OSRAM
SYLVANIA Engineering Bulletin HID-010.
High Pressure Sodium Lamps (Pulse Start)
High pressure sodium lamps require an external ignitor
similar to the pulse start metal halide lamps to start the
lamp, however the ignitor is typically only about 2.5 – 3kV.
For additional information on starting high pressure sodium
lamps see OSRAM SYLVANIA Engineering Bulletin HID-006.
Warm–up and Re-strike Time
HID lamps do not achieve full light output immediately.
Typical mercury vapor, metal halide and high pressure sodium
lamp warm up times are shown in Table 1. Because of the
characteristics of the HID lamps and ballasts, HID lamps can
extinguish after a momentary power interruption. The time it
takes for the HID lamp types to re-strike varies by the lamp
family. Typical re-strike times for mercury vapor, metal halide
and high pressure sodium lamps are shown in Table 1. There
is a family of HPS lamps with two parallel arc tubes which
can instantly re-strike. This phenomenon is not the result of
the ballast, but is inherent in the design of the lamp.

Ballast Operating Characteristics
A ballast must operate a lamp within ANSI prescribed
wattage and voltage limits. Wattage limits for all metal halide
and mercury lamps are generally ±20% of nominal wattage.
A ballast must operate a nominal voltage metal halide lamp
within ±5% of rated wattage with rated line voltage applied
to the ballast. High pressure sodium and mercury ballasts
must operate a nominal voltage lamp within ±71⁄2% of rated
wattage. Wattage limits for high pressure sodium lamps
differ from metal halide and mercury lamps. HPS lamps have
operating limits depicted on a voltage-wattage trapezoid plot
established by ANSI. Specific requirements are found in the
appropriate ANSI C78 lamp or C82 ballast specifications.
Ballast Circuits
Ballasts fall into two broad categories: lag and lead circuits.
The lag (or lead) refers to the relationship of the phase angle
of current relative to the voltage. Simple reactor, (R) and high
reactance autotransformers, (HX) are lag circuits. The
constant wattage autotransformer (CWA) ballast is a lead
circuit and produces a higher open circuit peak voltage than
reactor ballasts.
Reactor Ballast - (R)
A reactor ballast is the simplest type of ballast; it consists of
a wire wound on an iron core placed in series with the lamp,
and its only purpose is to limit lamp current. Reactor ballasts
are only used when the line voltage is sufficient to start the
lamp. Since reactor ballasts only perform the function of
current control, it is the least expensive, smallest, lightest
weight and most efficient magnetic HID ballast. However,
reactor ballasts have several disadvantages:
1. A ±5% input voltage variation results in ±12% lamp
wattage variation.
2. A 25% drop in input voltage may cause the HID
lamp to extinguish.

3. The ballast is inherently low power factor. The
reactor ballast can be corrected to high power
factor, (90% or better) by the addition of an appropriately sized capacitor wired across the input to
the ballast. This capacitor does not affect the lamp
regulation.

to size electrical circuits.
voltage for lamp starting superimposed on a relatively low
r.m.s. voltage sine-wave. This feature contributes to the
cost advantage for the CWA ballasts. This peak voltage
phenomenon along with the leading capacitive reactance
results in a common name for the ballast: lead-peak.
There are several advantages to CWA ballasts:
1. The regulation of a CWA ballast is different from the
reactor ballasts. A typical CWA ballast with a ±10%
input voltage variation results in only ±5% lamp
wattage variation for mercury vapor lamps and
±10% wattage variation for metal halide lamps.
2. Lamp warm-up will be slightly faster than reactor
ballasts.
3. A CWA ballast can tolerate line voltage drops of
30 to 40% without lamps dropping-out vs. about
25% for reactor ballasts.
High Reactance Autotransformer – (HX)
A high reactance autotransformer is a lag-type ballast
typically used in circuits where the line voltage is insufficient to start the lamp. The ballast provides two functions
in one magnetic circuit. First, the output voltage is either
stepped-up or down from the supply line voltage to provide
the proper open circuit starting voltage. Secondly, to
provide inductive reactance to limit the lamp current. The
primary and secondary coils share common windings and
are thus called an autotransformer. Like a reactor ballast,
the autotransformer is a normal power factor ballast (50%),
which can be raised to greater than 90% by addition of a
capacitor across the input supply line. The operating
characteristics are similar to the reactor ballast.
4. The operating current is typically higher than
starting and open circuit currents, thus sizing of
electrical circuits is easier.
Supply Voltages
To obtain the correct lamp wattage, the input voltage
required for HID ballasts is listed on the product label. The
wattage output will deviate substantially if an incorrect
input voltage is applied. Improper input voltage application
will void the warranty on both the lamp and the ballast.
SYLVANIA HID ballasts are available for nominal line
voltages of 120, 208, 240, 277 & 480 and 480/120TAP.
Power Factor
Constant Wattage Autotransformer (CWA)
This is the most commonly encountered ballast for lamp
wattages greater than 150 watts, because it is the best
compromise between cost and performance. A capacitor
is wired in series with the lamp to make it a high power
factor ballast and help regulate lamp power. Since there is
more capacitive reactance than inductive reactance, the
ballast is known as a lead ballast. The output voltage
waveform is peaked by the insertion of one or more core
slots in the secondary circuit resulting in a high peak
42
Ballasts are described as normal power factor or high
power factor. Normal power factor ballasts have power
factors less than 90%, such as simple reactors. High
power factor ballasts have power factors greater than
90%. Lag, (reactor), ballast power factor may be increased
to greater than 90% by incorporating a capacitor across
the input supply line. High power factor ballasts draw less
current than low power factor ballasts thus allowing more
fixtures per circuit. Low power factor lag circuits draw
significantly more current for the same wattage compared
to high power factor ballasts.
Audible Noise
The noise emitted from a ballast may be an important
consideration in the selection of a ballast. SYLVANIA lists
the sound rating in this catalog and on the product label for
all the F-Can ballasts to assist you in selecting the appropriate ballast for the application.
Fixture Effect Voltage Rise
The rated lamp life can be affected by lamp voltage rise
limits, known as fixture effect. For high pressure sodium
lamps, the sodium-mercury amalgam can be affected by a
luminaire reflecting energy back onto the arc tube. This
extra energy will increase the lamp voltage resulting in
shorter lamp life and lead to cycling for most HPS lamp
types. Therefore, a fixture must be designed to prevent
reflecting energy onto the arc tube. Lamp voltage rise is
dependent upon the fixture design and the maximum
allowed value is specified by ANSI.
ature rating of the ballast. All SYLVANIA HID core & coil
ballasts indicate the UL Bench Top Rise Temperature Code,
represented as 1029X, on the product label. The UL HID
standard is the 1029, while the X indicates the temperature
code classification, as A, B, C, etc. This is used for identifying the correct temperature ballast and fixture combination. For example, if a fixture is rated for use with a
1029C ballast, then the fixture can be used with ballasts
rated for “C”, “B” or “A”.

Fixture Fusing
Many HID fixtures incorporate a protective fuse in the
ballast compartment of a fixture. In the event of a ballast
failure or other mechanism that will cause the ballast to
draw excessive currents the fuse will “blow” disconnecting
power to the ballast. A fuse will not stop a ballast from
failing. Most fuses are rated at 77°F, (25°F) and are temperature sensitive. As the ambient temperature increases, the
fuse rating decreases. Fuses are usually mounted in the
ballast compartment of the fixture and must be able to
sustain between 2 and 3 times the highest current the
ballast will draw. The highest current draw of a ballast will
result from one of the following events:
1. Lamp starting
2. Lamp operating
3. Open circuit conditions
Effect of Temperature
The starting of HID lamps are sensitive to temperature. At
low temperatures, the reduced mercury vapor pressure
makes lamp ignition more difficult. In a hot re-strike
condition, following a power interruption, the lamp must
cool to reduce the arc tube pressure to allow the ballast to
re-strike the lamp properly.
Once the lamp has started, the operation of HID lamps is
essentially independent of ambient temperature because
the outer jacket controls the arc tube’s operating ambient
temperature. Wattage, lumen output, and color do not vary
appreciably with ambient temperature. However, ambient
temperature can affect ballast performance which in turn
can affect lamp operation.
Standard or slow-blow fuses are typically recommended
due to potentially high inrush currents that can occur during
lamp starting. The recommended fixture fuse rating for each
ballast is indicated in the data section of the catalog.
To assure the proper thermal performance care should taken
when designing a luminaire or when remote mounting a ballast.

failing. Most fuses are rated at 77°F, (25°F) and are temperature sensitive. As the ambient temperature increases, the
fuse rating decreases. Fuses are usually mounted in the
ballast compartment of the fixture and must be able to
sustain between 2 and 3 times the highest current the
ballast will draw. The highest current draw of a ballast will
result from one of the following events:
1. Lamp starting
2. Lamp operating
3. Open circuit conditions
Effect of Temperature
The starting of HID lamps are sensitive to temperature. At
low temperatures, the reduced mercury vapor pressure
makes lamp ignition more difficult. In a hot re-strike
condition, following a power interruption, the lamp must
cool to reduce the arc tube pressure to allow the ballast to
re-strike the lamp properly.
Once the lamp has started, the operation of HID lamps is
essentially independent of ambient temperature because
the outer jacket controls the arc tube’s operating ambient
temperature. Wattage, lumen output, and color do not vary
appreciably with ambient temperature. However, ambient
temperature can affect ballast performance which in turn
can affect lamp operation.
Standard or slow-blow fuses are typically recommended
due to potentially high inrush currents that can occur during
lamp starting. The recommended fixture fuse rating for each
ballast is indicated in the data section of the catalog.
To assure the proper thermal performance care should taken
when designing a luminaire or when remote mounting a ballast.
Drop Out Voltage
OSRAM SYLVANIA is focused on helping our customers
understand our products and simplify their use and application. OSI has developed an HID Troubleshooting Guide
(HID-011) that is intended to provide an overview of
common HID lighting system questions. This guide lists
common modes of system trouble and points out most of
the possible causes with respective verification/corrective
action. For additional information go to www.sylvania.com
or contact our National Customer Service Center at
1-800-LIGHTBULB (1-800-544-4828).
A drop in line voltage can cause an HID lamp to extinguish.
Magnetic HID ballasts are designed to endure fluctuations
in voltages to reduce lamp outages. A CWA ballast can
tolerate line dips of 30 to 40% without dropping-out versus
about 25% for reactor ballasts.

Ignitor
An ignitor is necessary to start certain
HID lamps where the ballast itself
does not have sufficient output
voltage to start the lamp; these
include most high pressure sodium
and pulse start metal halide lamps.
Mounting
Hardware
SYLVANIA Core & Coil ballasts are offered in easy to use
replacement kits for the range of metal halide, pulse start
metal halide, high pressure sodium and mercury lamps.
These ballast kits help to identify what is required for a
replacement or upgrade by providing an array of components in each kit. Each kit includes a core and coil ballast,
dry capacitor and ignitor (where required), brackets,
mounting hardware and installation instructions. Packaged
in individual boxes they are available in a wide variety of
input voltages: SUPER5, MULTI, 480 and 480/120TAP.
New SUPER5 Kits can be used for multiple taps styles
120/208/240/277and 480V minimizing hassles associated
with selecting the wrong voltage product. All are rated for
60Hz input frequency and utilize dry film capacitors for
easy and safer installation.
Ballast To Lamp Remote Mounting Distances
The ballast to lamp mounting distance allowed for Probe
Start Metal Halide and Mercury Vapor lamps is determined
by the ballast to lamp wire size. The wire size and mounting
distances that these lamps can be mounted from the
ballast are shown in Table 3. However, Pulse Start Metal
Halide and High Pressure Sodium lamps require an ignitor
to start the lamp. For ignitor based ballasts, the ignitor
determines the ballast mounting distance to the lamp. For
Pulse Start Ballast Technology, see individual product
specification for maximum distance-to-lamp allowed.

Capacitors
SYLVANIA supplies pre-wired dry
type capacitors in all kits. Dry
capacitors offer several advantages over oil filled capacitors. Dry capacitors are smaller in
size, do not have to be grounded because they are mounted
in a plastic case, have a maximum case temperature of
100°C and have no exposed terminals making them safer
and easier to install. SYLVANIA F-Can and Indoor Enclosed
ballasts contain the capacitor in the outer metal housing.

Since each lamp typically has a
different starting characteristic, the
ballast and ignitor must be carefully
matched to provide the proper pulse
voltage. SYLVANIA HID Ballasts
include the proper ignitor pre-wired to
the ballast where required. The ignitor
must be installed within the specified
distance from the lamp because the
ballast and ignitor function together to
ensure proper starting.
Care must be taken when remote
mounting a ballast with an ignitor. The
ignitor pulse voltage is attenuated as
the length of wire increases. The pulse
from the ignitor must travel from the
ignitor to the ballast and back to the
lamp which actually doubles the
remote mounting distance. The
maximum distance-to-lamp for
SYLVANIA ignitors is typically 2 feet
for core & coil ballasts, however there
are some ignitors that are rated up to
25 feet. SYLVANIA F-Can ballasts
offer a longer maximum distance-tolamp range of 15 - 50 feet. See
individual product specification for
maximum distance-to-lamp allowed.
SYLVANIA also offers replacement
ignitors if required.
