WHAT IS A BALLAST?


In the context of an indoor grow room a ballast is a piece of electrical equipment that regulates the voltage that a grow light will receive. If a ballast is not used with lamps such as High Intensity Discharge (HID) types the lamp will continually draw electrical current to an extent that is will overheat and burn out in seconds. 

A ballast will provide enough voltage to the lamp to ignite and then reduce the voltage to the low steady level which is required by the lamp. 


Most ballasts are designed to regulate around 4 lights at a specific voltage eg. 600w and therefore when picking a ballast you should ensure that its output matches the requirements of the bulbs that it regulates. 


There are 3 basic types of ballasts - 

  1. Magnetic 
  2. Electronic
  3. Digital
