Whoa look at that mercury migration
On VHO!

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

I've never seen a VHO migrate

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

It's on a electronic ballast a wonder if that helps the migration

Probably so. I've only seen migration happen in person on electronic's .
(well except the time I ran a good F20 on DC with Christmas lights as a ballast )

When a lamp goes EoL, anything is possible.

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

And it's vho, so I'm guessing EOL was entertaining?

Are the lamps connected in series to the ballast, or the ballast operates each lamp independently (Similar to the crappy 2x54W T5 ballast we have in Chinese striplights).
Mercury migrates when the lamp rectify, so if all the 3 lamps connected to the ballast in series, the 2 good lamps should have mercury migration as well.

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 hope that LED won't replace all forms of other light

I guess VHO can be running fine with one blackening, it's common to do it. I have seen VHO with both sides blackening and migration before and it's amazing!

I would assume this operates the lamps in parallell.
I think that's how all the IceHorse ballasts are?

Never heard of IceHorse... huh... how much OCV do VHO IceHorse ballasts carry?
Though this looks parallel instead of series, this kinda reminds me of Motorola ballasts.

Ice Cap is the ballast I think he's referring to.

Austin, How does the ballast compare to a magnetic setup on brightness? I've read that the Ice Cap ballast claim to be VHO but are actually HO ballast at high frequency to get better lumens. The parts about longer lamp life, etc etc. all reveal it's HO current load.

I picked up both versions of the ICE Cap ballasts to play with but haven't taken the time yet. I was looking for something dimmable but they really aren't because of the weird requirement to control the dimming circuit in the ballast.

Well this ice cap ballast is neat. It won t run unless all lamps are in. Then when you remove one it won't come back on when you put back. You have to cut the power to reset it. It has a fuse in the side too but no problems so far. As for lumens its pretty dam close to magnetic if not the same. I took this black sock out and have a single vho magnetic channel set up in basement I want to overdrive it a bit and see how long it will go. The black sock is well defined and dark with lamp off. When runs you see the orange filament glowing and humming I think soon but you can never quite tell exactly when it will eol phase.

That end blackening really does look like it's complete... EOL with this fixture, or even with magnetic, would definitely
make the cut for a potential YouTube video. Just sayin...

@suzukir122:
I was thinking IceHorse since it said 'ice house' in the description.
'IceHorse' is a Fulham ballast (Fulham uses some form of Horse for all their ballast names...)
IceHorse, WorkHorse, RaceHorse, FireHorse, Pony (even the 'SugarCube' kinda counts since horses like sugar cubes .lol. )

I guess its actually an Ice Cap though (something totally different) ... thats an aquarium VHO ballast (and an expensive one too)


@veryhighonoutput:
Sounds like it has some EOL protection then. I wonder if it'll just 'turn off' when the filament breaks?

Yeah if this does have EOL protection, then never mind about the potential interesting EOL show. lol

I may at some point in time try to get my hands on a Fulham ballast. Never owned one.

All the sudden this made a ear piercing high pitch noise I had to take the sock off. In fact I took this fixture down and put a f48, 2x60 watt fixture in its place

That doesn't sound good.
Do you think the ballast is done now?

Magnetic vs electronic... I'm pretty sure the magnetic ballast would never have done that.
Don't get me wrong, the ballast running these lamps seems like it was pretty cool, but not in terms
of the reliability aspect of it. lol... any unexpected noises from electronic ballasts scares the
crap out of me.

Agreed! I plan on going back to magnetic but the 3-4 lamp HO sign ballast is loud as well. But it runs the lamps better.

A sign ballasted fixture? Now that is something I've never thought about, because I always
assumed there is no fixture deep enough for a sign ballast, other than signs themselves of course.
But an actual fixture that takes a sign ballast? That would definitely be awesome!
