Application

Ballasts are used in a wide variety of applications which are described on Apogee. This category contains pages explaining various ballasts applications.



Fundamental

Ballast is a device used with an electric-discharge lamp to obtain the necessary circuit conditions (voltage, current and waveform) for starting and operation. All fluorescent and HID light sources require a ballast for proper operation. Dimming ballasts are special ballasts which, when used together with a dimmer, will vary the light output of a lamp.
