I've installed EM ballasts for a restaurant, and the addition of the red ballast and a test switch and indicator light was all there was to it. I'm guessing the red EM ballast has a battery pack built in it...
Interestingly enough, the directions said to cut the "common" (neutral) with the momentary test switch for testing purposes.
I also remember that they were expensive beasts too...
