Hey all! So recently I was fortunate to score a ton of used equipment from an old grower, allowing me to make a few small upgrades to my setup going into the next season… albeit older stuff, it’s certainly an upgrade from t5s. I’ve been reading up a bunch about lights and ballasts etc, to understand them better, but have a specific question I can’t answer for sure. Basically just wondering if these ballasts will work with these lights…
The lights themselves are a mix of sunlight supply sun system magnum xxxl gen 3 8” lights, and sun system dominator xxxl 8”, running hps
I have the ballasts that go with them, but one is shot, another humming pretty fuckin loud. And then I have several other ballasts. Wondering if I can use the other ballasts to replace some/all of the ballasts. I learned a lot about magnetic ballasts and digital ballasts etc, but still not sure.
So, here’s some pics of the lights. The white sun system ballasts are the ones that go with the lights, the green sun system ballasts are what I’m wondering if I can use with the lights. I’m under the impression that lights and ballasts aren’t as simple as “xxx amperage and watts” will work with any light at those specs. Thank you all
