Electrolier lamp EOL on Philips Advance electronic F40T12 ballast

Click to view full size image

This is a closeup of the EOL lamp in the Electrolier fixture. The EOL end is often purplish in colour and sometimes the arc snakes quite a bit in that end of the lamp. The ballast is a Philips Advance Rapid Start Electronic model number RELB-2S40-N. The lamps are wired in series.

I have the 1-lamp version of that Advance ballast and it has no EOL protection, so this should give a nice show.

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

Never seen a Canadian Watt-Miser before, come to think of it!

I'm hoping the EOL show doesn't take the ballast with it.

I've killed more lamps than I can count with mine and it's still going strong.

OK, I should be fine then. I'll keep you posted. This fixture is not used for long periods of time so it might take a while.

GE and Philips T12s tend to hang on quite a bit at EoL vs Sylvania. I've burned out tombstones/sockets because of the ends being so hot during EoL and lasting so long before the tube finally gives out.

The more you hate the LED movement, the stronger it becomes.

This lamp lost vacuum this morning. It had been running for about 10 minutes with the arc snaking and the end turning every shade of purple, black and orange. I suddenly noticed what appeared to be a small scratch in the black part of the phosphor. All of a sudden, the end turned a bit orange, and that scratched spot turned orange as the molten metal hit it. Then it went out and hissed for about 20 seconds. Will have to make a trip to the hardware store (I need furnace filters anyway).

It will be whatever the hardware store has in stock, most probably a Sylvania F40/DX. I'll let you know.
