The Holy Grail of Old Fluorescent Lighting Information

The Holy Grail of Old Fluorescent Lighting Information

Click to view full size image

I finally found a copy. This is the 1942 edition of this book, which means it has information on the rectified fluorescent, F65T17, DC auxiliaries, magnetic & thermal auxiliaries, and circuit diagrams for the RF lamp. It even has a table for arc voltages and currents for various lamps. Now I need to find the 2nd edition from 1948, which has the first circline and slimline lamps. The man who wrote this worked at Nela Park.

I’ll post some of the tables and circuit diagrams in this book when I get around to it.

I wonder how many impressions this book had? It must have been fairly popular to have so many.
