Philips Advance Centium Electronic Rapid Start Ballast

Philips Advance Centium Electronic Rapid Start Ballast

I originally had this installed into my 1st Sadelite desk lamp, but uninstalled it and
put it into my friends cheap shop-light fixture, as a replacement ballast for it. This fixture
originally contained a crappy Utili-tech ballast. I don't plan on keeping this ballast in this
fixture however, since I'm hoping to keep my friends bike garage lit with all magnetic Rapid Start
ballasted fixtures.

this is actually a pretty decent ballast. The light output isn't too bad at 0.62A so it would work great in a garage without the flickering of cold weather startups. While I like magnetic ballasts as well, I prefer electronic in the areas of the house like garages where flickering and cold weather startups can drasticlly reduce the life of magnetic.

The more you hate the LED movement, the stronger it becomes.

Even though I've heard some mixed things about the Advance Centium ballasts in the past, I agree with you. This ballast is pretty
decent for me so far. I've put it through numerous EOL shows and experiments in the past, and it still works absolutely fine.
This ballast should hold up well in my friends garage for the time being.

Other than a crappity shop light ballasted fixture in my friends bike garage, the rest of the fixtures are magnetic Rapid Start,
one of which is Low Power Factor. 3 of those fixtures contain Cold Temp HPF magnetic Rapid Start ballasts, and all 3 of those
have held up well. Two fixtures are F96T12 HO fixtures, and those have held up well too despite one fixture with a mix of 110/95 watt lamps.

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
