What is the difference between an electronic ballast and a magnetic core and coil?
Electronic ballasts, also known as "digital", utilize a internal microprocessor that converts a higher efficiency of energy to the bulb using less power from the ballast. The result is a higher quality bulb life, and increased output of light.
Does the Mondo reflector have attached flanges and a lens system?
The Mondo Reflector has louvered flange covers that must be removed in order to attach the included 6" flanges. A lens system is included with the packaging as well to complete the air-cooling functionality.
