Halide High Bay Wiring 240v


I bought some Halide High Bay Lights and am trying to hook them up to 240v. There are a lot of wires in the transformer labeled 120v, 240v, 277v,common. They are all white. How do I hook these up. Do I put 120v voltage to the 240v wire and also the common wire, and my ground to the case?

Yes, it's a typical 240V installation. Use a 2-pole breaker and wire one hot to the common and the other hot to the 240V tap.
