Electrical help wiring two t5 ballasts
Hey guys and gals. I got a question for you savvy electricians. I have 2 t5 ballasts that I would like to wire in a way so that they share the same power cord. And for an added bonus I would like to have each ballast controlled by its own on/off switch. Can this be done?
I am trying to make my fixture a bit more sleek by eliminating as many external cords as possible. I can't seem to find anything online that tells me it can be done. I did find a post on a random forum suggesting that its as simple as combing the the live with the live, the neutral with the neutral, and ground with ground. And placing switches at each live wire coming from the ballast. So basically the ballasts are ran in parallel.
I am using the following:
2 x Universal Lighting B239PUNV-D Ballasts (each ballast will be lighting up 2x39watt t5ho bulbs)
2x Rocker Switches rated @ AC 6A/250V or 10A/125V - 2 Pin SPST
I really apprecaite your input!
