seems this ballast is on its way out? I've seen a few as they fail they light the cathodes real bright

also came across a unit that was running 28W lamps on 54W/HO ballasts and was working

I would think it's the lamp itself ready to go EOL.

Hmm this doesn't seem like a normal EOL to me. Maybe the ballast treats EOL lamps differently than most electronic ballasts but this just looks different. Almost like it's sputtering.

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

The 28 and 54W tubes seem to last a decent time but the ballast are the let down. I've seen 28W on 54W gear and The other way around. Tridonic have now made a 28 or 54W ballast somehow it knows what lamps it's running
