Advance slimline ballasts

Advance slimline ballasts

Click to view full size image

Came from the Lithonia Canada striplights I got from curbside shopping. The owner who was present at time of pickup said they all work and he had changed to LED.

Ill test them eventually with my only pair of Sylvania lifeline daylight lamps and likely attempt to sell the ballasts as I dont need them

Yes. April 1997.

Don't need 'em?? Are you upgrading to F96T8 (you'll still need the lampholders for that, or even if you're converting to 8' LED)
Or are you simply scrapping the fixtures & saved the ballasts.

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

Why such a major downgrade?
Are F96 lamps not available in your part of Canada?

They are getting hard to find in good quality, most are those low mercury and low lumen ones. A good vintage case is impossible to get. I also don't really have the space to store 8 foot lamps safely. I'm also not keen on the lower lifetime of the lamps and that I cant leave EOL lamps in place for months.

I'll hold onto the ballasts for now though, I need to test them with my only pair of sylvania F96T12s I have which are stored in the 8 foot louver.
I would be interested in collecting F48 slimline however but I'm having a hard time getting hold of any and i don't know if I want to over pay for a case of 10 from a place in markham ontario

I'm fine with using modern F96 slimlines in the couple fixtures I have installed. Though I'm not really impressed with the short lifespan of those slimlines in general (modern or older). I've thought about converting the lights I have to electronic ballasts because the existing ballasts will overheat/shutdown if left running for a couple hours...even with good lamps. (I don't even bother to replace EOL's anymore until both lamps are completely dead)


The F48 slimline lamps are hard to come by here as well. I've only managed to come across a couple of them.
