Best North American 2 lamp F40T12 preheat ballasts for F36T8 tubes « on: August 23, 2021, 01:23:48 AM » Author: WorldwideHIDCollectorUSA
After considering trying to run European F36T8 tubes, their 32w energy saving replacements (for example, the Philips TL-D 32w ECO), and the Philips TL-D 23w Power Saver Set tubes on North American 2 lamp F40T12 preheat ballasts in vintage multi-lamp preheat fixtures for the North American market, I am interested in knowing which North American 2 lamp F40T12 preheat ballast models are able to keep 2 European F36T8 tubes lit at the same time without strobing that are not the early brick ballasts and long john ballasts after knowing that many of the later North American 2 lamp F40T12 preheat ballasts are known for causing one F36T8 tube to strobe like EOL while keeping the other F36T8 tube running normally.
