Ballast checker tool identifies ballast type to confirm ballast status and pinpoint lighting upgrade opportunities. When pointed at a fixture, the device turns green if the light source is powered by a high-frequency electronic ballast, orange if it’s powered by a magnetic ballast. It can also be used to verify that a fixture has been installed with an electronic ballast post-installation. (Ballast Checker by Advance) www.ballastchecker.com #10
