Flourescent lighting question

I have a strip of flourescent lighting (15 40w tubes). It is 277V. It has two 220V lines coming out of the end of the strip. One line goes to an emerency battery ballast and the other line goes to the ballasts for the normal use of the lights. My questions is: Can I tie the two lines together and then tie them to my 220 supply line for switching or do I need two different circuits?

Are you asking if it's okay to power 277V ballasts from a 240V circuit?

I really suggest that you stop right there and get ahold of electrician to come out because the 277volts is a commercal voltage and there are pretty strict code related to the back up units.
