The Black Box range of lighting contactors offers professional quality performance and flexibility. Available in 2 ,4, 6 and 8 way options, each contactor will power multiple 600W lights. E.g. a 4 way Black Box will power 4 x 600W ballasts etc.

For even more control, each socket has its own power switch. With the ability to turn on/off independently you can leave your ballast plugged in, without having to unplug anything from the Black Box.

Which Black Box is right for you?

As a rule of thumb, you should always match the switching load to the Black Box with the same amps rating. For example, 2 x 1000w Sodium power packs = 10Amps running current (switching load) so a 13Amp Black Box control unit should be selected.

General running currents are:

250W 1.25A
400W 2.13A
600W 2.89A
1000W 5A
