Fluorescent ballast question

  1. I am building a custom fixture which uses incandescent lamps. I would like
    to remote mount a fluorescent ballast for this fixture. Is there a maximum
    distance the ballast can be located from the lamps? I am using 3 F25T8
    lamps with an electronic ballast and would like it to be 9-10' away.

    Remote mounting distances are determined by the ballast manufacturer for the
    ballast being used. There are no industry standards. Universal Ballast for example says 12 or 18 feet is
    allowable for certain types. Pay attention to wire size requirements too
    especially for rapid-start systems.
