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
    http://www.universalballast.com/ for example says 12 or 18 feet is
    allowable for certain types. Pay attention to wire size requirements too
    especially for rapid-start systems.
