Thanks to the help from this forum I have my shop light fixtures wired hung and ready for bulbs. The fixtures are acrylic reflectors with glass lenses, 400W, High bay. I got them on the cheap in almost like new condition, but without lamps.
Do I need to be picky about the particular lamp type that I use in these fixtures? There are many different bulbs available. Are there any serious differences in bulbs such that I need to be careful in selecting them?
Also, these are pulse start lights. What happens if I don't use pulse start bulbs. If these are making too much light, can I simply put 250Watt bulbs with the same transformer/starter system?
I'm enjoying your website, especially the photos. It's really unbelievable what some people will do. My favorite was the transformer "mounted" with rope.
Thanks for all your help,
