Wanted - PL bulbs, ballasts & sockets « on: May 22, 2022, 03:04:42 AM » Author: 108CAM
I'm after anything PL related to expand my collection. I will take lamps, ballasts, sockets and complete fixtures that will work on Australia's 240v 50hz mains power supply.

Fluro starter chimes combined with a 50hz ballast hum and blinking tubes is music to my ears.

Actually, the 40w PL-L has a much higher arc voltage drop compared to 36w PL-L and it will have problems maintaining an arc with a normal starter on a F36T8 preheat ballast. However, the 36w PL-L will run fine with a normal starter on a F36T8 preheat ballast.
