Fluorescent Troffer wiring instructions.

I just purchased a new 4-bulb Fluorescent Troffer that came with no wiring instructions. Opening up the unit where the 2 ballests are, there are 4 wires with stripped ends. 1 white and 1 black, and tied together are another white and black with a label that says "inside lamp". Can anyone explain how to wire these up to the power line??

Well, I would tkae it back where you got it and get instructions.

I suspect that you match color to color, as in white to white and black to black.

Yes it is white to white and black to black. It is wired that way so that you can put it on two seperate switches. Inside and outside tubes.

In other words, if I am using only one switch I would tie the 2 whites together and the same for the blacks??
