Folks, I purchased some new ballasts and bulbs for my flourescent
lights out in the garage (shop), at the advice of a friend, who now
really can't tell me how to wire them up.
I want to replace my old fading bulbs, and so, was recommended to
purchase some Phillips, F32TB/TL841plus bulbs (which are the same
length, but smaller diameter) which supposedly put out a whole lot more
light. To use these bulbs, I also had to purchase a new ballast for
each fixture. These are the Advance Transformer co. Rel-2P32-HL-SC
The problem comes in with the wiring. The old original ballast had two
red wires (going to one end of the fixture) and two blue wires, going
to the other end of the fixture. I saw how the old ones were wired up,
but the new ballast has only one red wire going to one end, and two
blue wires going to the other end. The red wire I figured I could jump
to connect to all four connections at one end of the fixture, but on
the other end, originally, of the two sockets, only one socket received
a connection, one wire to each of the original blue wires, but then
jumper wires were hooked up from one socket to the other socket.
Does anyone have any experience rewiring these? I don't want to blow
up the ballast or the bulbs by miswiring.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated,Thanks!
