Alto won't die

Alto won't die

This lamp is in the kitchen at my work and was doing its death dance, pulsating rhythmically and flashing purple at the end. Lots of blackening and it looks EOL. Yet it's still going strong a week later and not flashing anymore. The arc must have found a stable spot. It's on an instant start electronic ballast and a motion sensor so it gets switched many times a day too.

Ouch! The six lamp highbays at my old high school were on individual motion sensors and had ISH Quicktronic ballasts and Sylvania XPS lamps. Went back to visit recently and most are still working from 2010 so that's pretty cool. Granted they're only used 180 days a year but on/off a considerable amount of the day.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

I've seen this happen when I was in high school... also with a philip alto, only it had a different color temp. (3,000k) It
was also on an electronic instant start ballast. So this phenomenon might be more common than I thought. It took about a week
as well before I noticed in class that it had finally burned out.

1. Motorcycles, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weighting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend
