LED Ballast
Hello, can anyone assist in providing a good source of which to obtain a replacement for the following ballast? This is for an 89w LED system.

I've found the following product although i am unsure if this is the correct socket type. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks

It looks electrically compatible. If the connector is wrong, just cut the connector off the old one and install it on the new one.

I think i may do this, OEM unit lasted me less than 2 years and costs twice the price at $143. I just wanted to be assured this ballast will work.

It doesn't appear to be a ballast. LED's need a constant current DC driver, which is sometimes called a ballast by analogy to the ballast used for a gas discharge lamp which serves a similar function. This does not do the same thing. This appears to be a plain DC power supply. The "ballast" part (constant current driver) would be in the fixture that is powered by this DC power supply.
