Green Neon indicator

Green Neon indicator

Click to view full size image

Found it chilling in a card board box of mine. I have alot of greens aswell as blues whites and oranges but this one is larger than the average neon glow lamp

Any way to increase the life of the greens blues and whites? They burn out noticibly quicker than the yellows oranges and reds... It's rather annoying..

Whatever resistor is recommended to use in series with it, double it. It will halve the current so obviously the lamp will be dimmer, but the electrode sputtering will be less and increase the lamp life.

Interested mainly in discharge lighting (mercury, sodium, neon) and also old and unusual incandescents.

Probably Argon (rather than Neon) with a Green phosphor??

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

I like colored neons.

I think I have a lighted switch thats made by Leviton, and it has a green neon light inside.

Save the Cooper OVWs!! Don't them down by crap LED fixtures!!!

The reason the blue, whites, and greens burn out faster is because of the argon fill. Argon causes spluttering while neon doesn't.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Alright I will run them at half current. I prefer reliability over efficiency...


And the color of argon is cool. I wish they made these lamps without phosphor so a bluish violet NE-2 lamp could be added to my stockpile

Why argon causing faster sputtering of the electrodes than neon?

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.

I second this question. Why is argon more likely to cause sputtering? How does krypton, xenon and helium perform when it comes to sputtering?
