    Am trying to find a replacement HF ballast for a fitting believed to be a TLC MDEC 258 [https://www.tlc-direct.co.uk/Products/MDEC258.html].

    There are various ballasts for 2 x 58W fittings listed on line from third-party suppliers but they come in several different sizes and fixing centres. Neither TLC nor the manufacturer (?NVC) have been much help.

    Can anyone tell me where to get the _correct_ ballast for this fitting?

    TIA, Chris

    If it was me, I'd get one of these

    https://www.cef.co.uk/catalogue/products/4108203-1-x-58w-h-f-ballast

    and if necessary drill new holes or whatever to mount it in the fitting. If you want a direct replacement then you need to measure the fixing centres and compare them to the data sheets for various units. I'm sure you can do that just as well as we can!

    Thanks davelx.

    Turns out it was a Thorn Punch II fitting not TLC non-branded, they have the exact Tridonic ballast with 270mm fixing centres that you recommended so all good.
