The original ballast and maybe the starters too. Nice to see the date and signature is on the ballast.

Very cool! I had no idea there were "brick" style ballasts with integrated leads like this made outside North America. It's also amazing that it's multi-tap...my first time seeing that on a fluorescent ballast!

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

One of the fluorcent tubes by all fixtures starting up with a lot of flashes before it pops on. I think the intern condensor is in bad condition. But it's cool to see

Does the lamp that has trouble starting have a "flickering" or "shimmering" effect after it starts?

No, when it's started its all good and both give the same amount of light. Looks like the filaments have too low voltage in my eyes. You don't see them glowing at all. I think that's why it flashing so long time. (10 till 60seconds I gues) doesn't matter if you put new starters in it.

It says "anti stroboscopique". Is here some special function for this too?

I think this is a false advertising.

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.

The 'anti-stroboscopic' is simply a benefit of using a lead-lag power factor correction; the lamps are out of phase which cancels the flicker from the mains frequency.

Wow, transformer ballast for Europe, does it have higher OCV on 220V than simple choke ballast?

No. This is an European made transformer ballast for the US market. it is 120V, and converting it to 200-240V.

The stickers says that it's multi-voltage, including 220V, therefore I wonder how it differs from a simple choke.

Ahh. OK. I thought SOXman lives in the US. I think that this is a multi tap ballast for the Japanese, US/Canada and European/British markets.
