Recently, another member found a rf fixture. This may be helpful to get it working. This shows the circuit diagram for a single lamp rf fixture using a resonant circuit for starting, and also provides an explanation of the operating of the rectified fluorescent lamp.

The fixtures work fine; it’s the bulbs that are unobtainable. F85T10 was discontinued in the 1960s & the fixtures were rapidly decommissioned . They are also ugly fixtures as most people would probably describe. Only 500,000 fixtures were produced according the GEs 1942 manual & they were targeted towards commercial customers.

That must be a rare bird out there. It superseded with modern version of 800 mA HO/1500 mA VHO fluorescent light bulb technology.

Now, my question is when did they introduced the modern version of HO and VHO design?

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

There’s three GE units known but they don’t have the bulbs to make them work; & another quantity of Westinghouse units that are in perfect working order.
