General Electric circline ballast 32/22w

General Electric circline ballast 32/22w

This came out of an old fixture I recently acquired from the restore. Ballast works perfectly and still sounds very quiet. Yellow dust is chalk i attempted to apply to show the label better.

I heard these will run a pair of F32T8 lamps so I'm going to try this out for myself

Be careful with it, I would rather use s newer ballast than this old gem to test lamps. Prolly not many of these left.

Those really old circline ballasts were designed a bit different than modern rapid-start. When they say 'trigger start' or 'quick start' the filament heating voltage is higher than regular modern rapid-start and could cause early end blackening. I tried a nos Sylvania 32w T9 on an old Advance 'Quick Start' and the lamp didn't fire up right away but the ends glowed brighter than a stuck starter and the ends became almost totally black in less than 30 seconds.

I guess the older T10 circlines must have had different cathode filaments.

I noticed that with this. The cathodes were a little more orange, I also noticed that the yellow wires were providing the heating voltage in series across both cathodes it connects to. If I power up this fixture with a lamp missing, only one cathode on the remaining lamp is glowing, this happens if either lamp is removed.

It looks like a harmony house but I'm not fully sure

It looks like it'd be a good match for my twin chrome f14 HH preheaters.
