I’ve stumbled upon this forum in a search for a replacement part for a PCB that makes up a digital ballast for a HPS light used in basil clone production.
I’m handay with a soldering iron but I am no electrical engineer so I’m finding it hard finding a way to source the replacement part.
From what I’ve gathered it’s a slow blow fuse, 10a / 350v as stated in the picture below. The ‘F1’ led me to believe it’s a fuse... (I know, a true amateur) ha!
Is this a speciality piece? I’m in the UK and which is 230/240v supply. With the ballast rated to 1200w I believe the 350v is to fascilitate the inrush of current... (excuse me if terms are spaghetti).
Any ideas on how to identify this component? You can see in the pic it has burnt out / blown and there’s also evident of a bit of water damage isolated to this fuse and the incoming L and N terminals.
Can I replace the fuse?
