ballast

unit inserted between the supply and one or more discharge lamps which by means of inductance, capacitance, or a combination of inductance and capacitance, serves mainly to limit the current of the lamp(s) to the required value

NOTE It may also include means for transforming the supply voltage and arragements which help provide starting voltage and pre-heating current.
