workhorse 5 ballast drive a 160w vho bulb?


Recommended Posts

Okay, so my one of my ballast blew on my vho lighting system, and when I opened it up, there were 2 workhorse 5 ballasts in there. These two ballasts are driving a pair of 72" vho bulbs.


My question is, is a workhorse 5 ballast underdriving a 160w vho bulb? It says on the ballast that the max is 128w....


Does that seem right to you? Not sure how it all works and if that's sufficient, but if that's correct I'll be needing to replace the ballast.


Anyone have a spare wh5 lying around?
