I was wondering if someone here could answer in very general terms what I need to piece together a used MH
setup. I'm not looking to do it right now but I'm keeping my eyes open for good deals.
I have seen XX watt ballasts and XX watt pendants with all kinds of bulbs. What I'm wondering is first off, are the pendants wattage specific or is it just the bulb placed in there? ie: if someone is selling a 250w pendant with so and so bulb, are they really referencing the wattage of the bulb that's currently in there or is it the wattage of the pendant?
As for ballasts, obviously I need the right power for the right bulb. However, are the connections between the ballasts and pendants standard? Are they "plug and play" type setups or do you hard wire them?
Thanks to anyone who can answer or point me in the right direction.
