Wow, that's a beast!
Do you plan to light it? I think autoleak transformers for 180W SOX should work.

Will it light on a (proper) preheat/rapid start ballast?

As far as to my knowledge there is no proper rapid/preheat ballast for that rating. And those lamps need a special ignition device. A normal glow starter won't be able to strike that lamp. only the shape looks like fl. Nothing more in common (with the exception of low pressure speciality)

From what i understand you can light these lamps wired in a switch start circuit with a 125W starter. Or maybe the S12 starter, But using a 150W SON ballast or 2 80W mercury vapour ballasts connected together. I believe that the 180W SOX ballast is the wrong type and does not produce enough current to light these lamps!

I have some 150w SON gear and I might try switch starting it but only have FS10 starters to hand. Reckon an Arlen EFS600 would do the job?

UK out of the EU!

Yes, length is the same, not sure about diameter but probably very similar or T12.

150W HPS ballast (+ ignitor) will work, see here.

I think it is possable to light that lamp on rapid start F96 dual lamp HO gear. as each lamp is 110 watts and the energy saver 2x90 watts. as it put out 800 Ma. just use the red and blue wire out do the trick. but finding american ballast over there is pretty slime i would think.

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

If its OCV is enough.... Rapid Starts have lower peak output voltage than Switch Start

at Ash those rapid start HO two lamp ballast is almost like a center tap transformer in a way, with cathodes
so it shoud do over 600 volt OCV. it might do 14 feet of tubes with ease but no such tube produced.
but it would be interesting to test out.

Howdy everyone,

I'm new here & this is my first post!

Anyway, I can confirm that this bulb indeed works quite well with a Fulham Workhorse 8!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L1SP283i7qU

My plan is to build this into a weatherproof housing and mount it outside one of my upstairs windows... more for entertainment/novelty, but also to illuminate my entire (tiny) back yard and the large field outside of my fence!

I'll put that 36w SOX lamp into another enclosure for more routine backyard lighting purposes. At least that's my plan
