I have 2 of the following ballasts: http://www.advancetransformer.com/eC...5731103431.pdf
Advance Instant Start electronic ballast, REL-4P32-SC capable of handling up to 4-F32T8 bulbs, including U-bent tubes.
I currently use one to power a 55w PC and another to power a 36w PC. The ballast has 2 red and 2 blue "hot" wires and 2 yellow neutral wires. I use 1 power and 1 yellow for 36w PC. For 55w PC I use 2 power wires and 1 yellow.
I would like to use these ballasts in my new setup. My question is:
-Can I use one ballast to operate 2x36w PC and another to power 2x55w PC?
-Should I instead use one ballast for 1x32w and 1x55w PC?
-Would this be overpowering the ballast too much? I am not really worried about the 2x36w but I wonder if the 2x55 or the 36/55w combo will be too much. I know the wattage is sufficient but I know there is more to powering PC besides wattage, ballast factors and amps for instance.
I am a little gunshy as I reciently had a practically brand new ballast go while powering a 36w PC and 2x 17w NO tubes. I don't think that was over powering it, possibly it got wet or it was just a bad ballast? Either way, I would hate to have my setup only last a week and be in trouble when I have to wait for shipping, plus spend more money
Any help is greatly apprecieated!!!
