12 V 2*8 W fluorescent fixture

12 V 2*8 W fluorescent fixture

Click to view full size image

This is my hobby space 12 V fluorescent fixture. It has halophosphate 33 (640) and 54 (765) tubes. There is also 12 V incandescent lamp next to it. The light from these tubes is very cold and they are not very bright. This fixture burns tubes out quickly.

I have maybe similar fixture in old deserted trailer with something Anex lamps.

Don't care my errors in Writing and my bad English.
LED fad off!
Fluorescent and low pressure sodium are best!

I read somewhere here, that this style fixtures usually underdriven the tubes. .

Possibly, but with new tubes it is quite bright, especially with triphosphor tubes compared to halophosphate tubes. But I have several F8T5/D tubes (same as 54/765?) so I use them despite their very pale light especially with low lighting levels such as this.

Too many things are secret. Only open information can really preserve old technology.

I like fluorescent and other conventional lighting and old electronic equipment. Today's things are not made to last.

These fixture underdrives the lamps and connects one wire to each end of the lamp, so the lamps runs in cold cathodes mode, so the blackening.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.
