Advance RS Ballast "Low Resistance Filament"

Advance RS Ballast "Low Resistance Filament"

I've seen these on eBay once in a while so out of curiosity I bought one. Right off I noticed they are rated 50 HZ but I wonder if anyone here knows what "Low Resistance Filament" means or what type of lamp has this? The ocv is higher too...about 325v so an eol 40w lamp is more flickery. I put in an eol 34w Supersaver which put on a good but short show before losing vacuum.

Also of note, running this on 60HZ overdrives lamps...at about 500ma and ballast gets rather hot. My guess is that the capacitor causes higher current when used on higher line frequency. If it was just coil, the increased frequency would normally decrease current.

Probably this is used for the 50 Hz circuit somewhere in USA or low voltage in some European country

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

This might run better on a modified sine wave system perhaps ? Just a hunch as when I do this, my fixtures run a little dim and a bit louder
