This is the gear from the heavy Miller 8' vintage fixture I see no mention of es/ss/wm lamps!

Made before watt misers were introduced. I've read comments that down slimline ballast for being unreliable. I have had ballast that a rectifying lamp overheated and shut down go on for several more sets of lamps.

Keep government out of the lighting industry.

Seems like they can be rather unreliable if you're lazy at replacing dead tubes (especially the 4ft slimline ballasts) but if you take care of the lights they'll last forever and they'll start very reliably if it's above freezing. Below freezing it's HO (or VHO) time.

LOL at sound rated "C". At least they're honest. I think the worst I've seen is "D" on a big ballast like this. I think it was a GE.

Know what's funnier look at the GE bonus line HO 1960 ballast that came with the daybright fixtures I just posted last. Its rated b for sound and quieter than this one too

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts

It's weird I've noticed that most slimline ballasts are louder than most ho ballasts. I wonder why?

Especially the start up this one flashes and bangs when you first fire up when cold then a nice buzzz sound when it levels out.I wonder if the reason is these type of ballasts are small compared to how they used to be so less tar compound to keep noise level down. Also notice this has more voltage than the HO.

HO heats the cathode thus allowing for a lower starting voltage. Slimline can't heat the cathodes.
