Question: Retrofitting T12 or T8 to T5. Current fixtures utilize electronic ballast. Will T5 operate on existing ballast or require new? Thanks in advance.
Additional Comments: Great resource for electrical information.
Thanks for your electrical question Paul. The existing electronic ballast must state that it is compatible with T5 Lamps. If it does not, then a new compatible electronic ballast will be needed.
