    Help with 480 light fixture single phase

    right now we have metal helide its wired two hot leggs one going to the neutral and one to a 480 leg. In my 480 panel 3 phase there is no neutral.
    My question is I am trying to replace them with a fluorescent light fixture T5.
    We have these advanced ballast with two hot leads and one neutral we capped off the neutral and wired the two hot leggs to the two existing single phase 480 and they did not fire up. Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Also there is not neutral and no ground in the existing power.
