The 36W T8 near the stock ramps, EOL

The 36W T8 near the stock ramps, EOL


I've seen yesterday, that this lamp is EOL. As I know that there is a Shaingout Electronic Start ballast inside it, with an Arlen Pulsestarter EFS600 inside it, I tried to reset the power to the fixture to see how the starter behaves with EOL krypton T8 lamps, but nothing happened.

If the light has a Pulsestarter inside it then the light needs to left off for around 20 seconds so the starter will reset, if it still doesn't work then my guess is the cathode has blown as Pulsestarter tent to brake the cathode at lamp EOL.

What cause the cathodes on T12, argon T8 and short T5 to break at EOL, is the rectification of the lamp at EOL, so as the Pulsestarter detects triggering voltage from the rectifying EOL lamp, it ignores this voltage and lets the lamp to rectify, until the cathodes breaks.
Krypton T8 refuse to hold a discharge at EOL, so the Pulsestarter should give up after being unable to start the lamp, so it can't break the electrodes of these lamps (This is the same reasons why krypton T8 takes the glow starters with them at EOL, as they refuses to hold a rectifying discharge at EOL, that would otherwise break the filaments).

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

Yes that's correct although there was a Osram L70W/835 made in Germany in school that broke a cathode when it went EOL on pulse starter. The T12's always broke the cathodes on pulse starter because when the pulse starter cut out the tubes still flicker.

Tried this today, the lamp preheated and than flickered for several seconds than went out (Random time).
