I have a bit of a problem and i've managed to come across your forum, so i figured someone might be able to help me here...

i need to connect the High Pressure Sodium lamp with Z 400 MK ignitor and Philips BSN 150 Ballast... here are the schemes that are on those 2 elements:


scheme on balast (BSN 150 L302-ITS)


scheme on ignitor (Z 400 MK):




thank you all so much in advance.

here is the pic that you can just edit in paint adding a few lines so that i know which wire goes where...

edit: where it says "Utikac", that is the part that goes into electric circle in a wall. hh, on my language ;)

btw, i think i know how to read this schemes and i think i've connected it properly the first time when the light bulb exploded, so could it be that that this ignitor doesnot work with philips balasT?
p.s. i'm so sorry this is all in done in paint, but i think it should work.. all you have to do is click on the pic to enlarge it.

well, it would help me alot only if you told me the order in which the letters on ignitor on the first scheme are going..

lets say top to bottom... how do they go Lp, B, N ?

p.s. lol @ hi light... hhh.

so that ends up looking that there are 5 wires going in ignitor:

2 in lp and 2 in N, one in B...right?

are those 2 connections on ballast which are on the same side - actually the same connection? i meen, the same "dot" in the electric circle?

cause i think i've connected according to that scheme, but i might have replaced those 2...
