Personally feel that the FG5P is an alternative existence, in China can only point 32W ring tube. FG4P and FE4P are equivalent to the functions of ST111, S10 and C10. FG1E is equivalent to the S2 or C2 in China, because both are up to 22W and both support one-to-two, but due to voltage, FG-1E in China municipal power can not light up 30W TL-D lamp.

这个网站他会限制代理访问,之前我在中国用得好好的,但是去年被中国政府GFWed了,然后普通的VPN也访问不了,必须原生IP才可以访问
中文:是吗?我还真不知道。但是另外一个Jauce网站可以直接访问(我试过了,反应挺快)。
English:Yeah?  I really do not know.  But another Jauce website can be accessed directly (I tried it and the response is very fast)

Added translation:
He will restrict proxy access to this website. I used it well in China before, but it was GFWed by the Chinese government last year, and then ordinary VPN can't access it, only native IP can be accessed.

Yeah, I believe 347v wiring devices even use a different hole spacing to prevent them from being used in the wrong junction boxes. The boxes are similar to the ones used with 120/277v but the single gang boxes are wider than standard boxes and the multi gang boxes are required to have dividers between each device. Interestingly 347v receptacles are also made too although aside from high bay lighting, I'm not sure what would use them.

I also prefer the 277v rated "spec grade" switches compared to the standard residential grade ones. They seem better built and I think have a stronger spring which makes the switch snap open/closed quicker compared to residential grade. I also prefer the "spec grade" receptacles over the residential grade ones too. They have dual wiper contacts which seem to last longer and grip plugs better compared to standard outlet.

I recently got hold of a pretty early electronic T8 ballast that had a date code of March 1993. That's pretty early for electronic IMO. It's this Osram Quicktronic QT-2x32/120 IS. It wires up similarly to a modern electronic instant start T8 ballast but has it's own ground wire instead of being grounded through the fixture. The case is also the same size as a magnetic ballast too. It's also 120v only like most older electronic ballasts.

Huh? Is he the lead singer?

Yes, he is...he also sang for the band Ace, was a co-lead singer (sharing duties with Paul Young) with Mike & The Mechanics, and also had a solo career. He's the guy at the far right.

For those who want to knock on 80's music, I grew up then...I lived it. Nothing compares...and yes, I did listen to oldies back then too.

Everyone talks about the 80s… but I think that decade is overrated. What about the 50s, 60s, 70s? There’s James Brown, Aretha Franklin, The Temptations, etc.
