Wiring instructions for HPS S-50 bulb

Any tips or wiring instructions for a HPS S-50 bulb? Trying to wire it to a extension cord for a 120v. Any advice I can have, I really would appreciate the help

First thing to understand is you do not wire a bulb, the bulb screws into the appropriate socket which will probably be a mogul base socket, the big one. Next thing to understand is that to drive a S-50 HPS lamp you need a ballast, capacitor and ignitor. Here is what all you need to make the lamp work.


Basically you need to buy a complete fixture.
