Bought these on a flea marked in Germany.

Description (English) :

" FS-11 and FS-22 universal starter

Provides a gentle start of fluorescent lamps. FS-11 type for single circuits. 4-65W,80W universal, 230V. FS-22 type for series twin circuits, 4-22W, 230V. When lamp begins to flicker replace with both lamp and starter: use environmentally friendly COP safety starter."

Beschreibung (Deutsch) :

,, FS-11 und FS-22 Universalstarter starten Leuchtstofflampen schnell und leise. FS-11 : Einzelschaltung 230V ; 4-65W,80W FS-22 : Serienschaltung 230V ; Einzelschaltung 120V ; 4-8,14,15,18-22W. Bei Lebensdauerende der Lampe (Lampe startet nicht) : Lampe und Starter austauschen. Das Flackern bei nicht mehr startender Lampe kann durch Verwendung des Abschaltstarters COP vermieden werden. "

That's interesting how they advertise this with safety feature: Capacitor

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Small and very high quality, they are one of the few starters that each contain a getter inside the glowbottle (see silver coloured tip of the capsule). This ensures a high purity atmosphere which helps ignition at impressively low levels and reduces the rate of degradation during life. Like the Thorn glowbottles, these are also made on a former Photoflash capsule line at very high speeds. However these have rather better control of the inter-electrode distance, thanks to first sleeving the leadwires in glass to rigidly fix their position, and then melting that internal bead of glass into the press-seal of the glowbottle capsule.

I don't know how with the starters, but glow tubes used for digital circuits (before semiconductors took over that functions) were after manufacture "stabilized" by operating them at elevated current for some time. That resulted to some of the electrode material getting sputtered onto the glass bulb, looking like a getter coating, but it was no true getter at all, the intention was to equalize the electrode surface.
And I would guess the requirements for those "digital circuit" glow tubes are about the same as for the starters - to keep the voltage characteristics consistent both across the production, as well as the lifetime and operating environment. So from that I would guess this would be the same - after sealing, the tube is biased by some current for some time, to treat the electrode surface...

No more selfballasted c***
