  • Actinic Question

    I nee to add an actinic to my system for a dusk/dawn effect. I have a ballast that will fire 2 54w t5s and was wondering if you guys think It will fire 1 75w VHO super actinic. I dont have the ballast in front of me but was wondering if you guys thought it may work. TIA

    If it's a workhorse ballast it will. If it's a true T5 ballast it won't.

      Moon, its not a workhorse ballast or a true t5. I think it may be made be advance but it is an electronic, not a mag. WOuld I be better getting a VHO to see if it will fire or just overdrive a NO URI SUper actinic

        I dunno what ballast that is. Are you sure it's not a true T5? If it isn't it'll work.

          Thanks Moon, I found out it is an HO ballast so I decided for now to overdrive an NO URI super--its not as great as the VHO but it does exactly what I want it to do
