It was burned, because it operates on the IS emergency inverter, that operates each time the lamps turned off :(.

@Danny: This is because the emergency module of this fixture (Which is a two wires instant start inverter), connected to the switch instead to a 24/7 supply, so the blackened lamp glows in emergency (Even when new) with cold cathodes (Operates at just 8W) every time the shop is closed and the lighting turned off, causing a massive sputtering and therefore the huge blackening.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.
