Does this operate on an MH Ballast?

TT, zone 5b MAJuly 21, 2009

Hi -

I have heard a lot about these bulbs (I think this is the Ceramic metal halide that I have heard good things about)...but I cannot discern from the information whether these will run on a standard 400W Metal Halide ballast (I believe I have a SunSystem ballast that is a few years old).

Can anyone tell me if it will, or if it requires an HPS ballast to operate?


Here is a link that might be useful: MasterColor

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

It appears as though the link doesn't work,however, I have the 400 watt cmh and they work with a hps ballast.
