Ballast Factor

The percentage of a lamp's rated lumen output that can be expected when operated on a specific commercially available ballast. For example, a ballast with a ballast factor of 0.93 will result in the lamps emitting 93% of their rated lumen output. A ballast with a lower ballast factor results in less light output and also generally consumes less power.
Ballast Factor

Ballast Type

Magnetic ballasts are a legacy technology and use inductance to transform the line voltage to the voltage required to "fire" or excite the gasses in a lamp. Electronic ballasts use a variety of starting methods, and are more efficient than magnetic ballasts in converting input power to the proper lamp power and operate fluorescent lamps at higher frequencies, resulting in an overall lamp-ballast system – increasing efficacy 15% to 20% over a magnetic equivalent.
Ballast Type

Length (in)

Also referred to as "Maximum Overall Length" (MOL). For light bulbs, it measures the length of a light bulb, from the top of the bulb to the bottom of the base or pins and is typically expressed in inches. For light fixtures and ballasts, it applies to the total horizontal length of the item.
Length (in)

Width (in)

For fixtures and ballasts, width is the measurement of the total horizontal distance from left to right of the product in inches.
Width (in)

Height (in)

For ballasts and fixtures, height is the measurement of total vertical distance from the top of the product to the bottom expressed in inches.

Power Factor


Total Harmonic Distortion (THD)

Total harmonic distortion, or THD, is the measure of how much a ballast can distort the waveform of that building’s power supply and interfere with other equipment. Electronic ballasts today are rated at less than 20 percent, 15 percent, or less than 10 percent THD. The magnetic ballast is rated in the 20 to 28 percent range. The lower the THD the better and more efficient the ballast, and the less likely it is to interfere with other electronic equipment.

Ballast Lamp Type

The type of bulb the ballast can fire.

Start Type

For Ballasts, indicates the method the ballast uses to start its bulbs. HID ballasts can be Probe or Pulse start. Fluorescent ballasts can be Rapid, Instant or Programmed start. For HID and Fluorescent bulbs, indicates the start-type of ballast that the bulb will work with.

I'll buy this product for future linear LED retrofits


I learned about replacing fluorescent lights with linear LEDs. Problem is that the ballast for each light also needed replacing going from a T12 to a T8. This ballast did the trick.

Used To Upgrade An Old Lighting Fixture


I had a thirty year old 2' x 2' ceiling lighting fixture in my kitchen that had two T-12 ubent florescent bulbs. This light stays on more than any fixture in my home. The bulbs were getting old and starting to flicker a bit. The bulbs are a bit of a pain to change so I decided to upgrade to LED for energy savings, longer bulb life and increased brightness. I discovered that the old ready start magnetic ballast was not compatible withe ubent Philips LED bulbs I purchased. The rep picked out this ballast to be compatible with the new bulbs. This ballast fit the old mount perfectly. The old ballast was serial wired and the new one was parallel wired so I had to rewire the old unit using the old bulb holders. Following the wiring diagram that came with the new ballast it was a very simple job and did not require taking the fixture down. The new bulbs come on instantly and are much brighter and the new bulbs and ballast produce far less heat than the old ones did which to me equates to energy savings. I am very pleased with the products supplied by and the assistance provided by their reps.

Q & A
Does the ICN-2P32-N have thermal protection? If so, does it automatically reset?


Yes it has thermal protection and the ballast contains auto restart circuitry in order to restart lamps without resetting power.

The ballast I have has an SC instead of N on the last digit is that still comparibale? And which home remodeling store carries these? Home Depot or Lowes both are in our area.


The ICN2P32N has replaced the "SC" version. They are comparable ballasts; there is a difference in the width and height of the ballasts. This ballast is 1" in height and 1.3" in width. The "SC" version is 1.2" in height and 1.7" in width. The lengths are the same for both ballasts.


This ballast is an ICN2P32 N and the ballast that i am currently using is an advance ICN2P32SC. What is the difference

The ICN2P32N has replaced the "SC" version. They are comparable ballasts; there is a difference in the width and height of the ballasts. This ballast is 1" in height and 1.3" in width. The "SC" version is 1.2" in height and 1.7" in width. The lengths are the same for both ballasts.
