How can I fire up my induction lamp? « on: May 27, 2024, 01:57:09 PM » Author: Philips tigkas
A while ago I found a circular induction lamp in a lamp bin, though because this is my first induction lamp I don't know how to fire it up ???.
Can someone please help me out?

LEDs are like an apocalypse! They slowly take over the world wiping out every other type of lamp and fixture!

You need a highly specialized generator circuit at about 240kHz and about 130W to do this properly. See an example in my collection. https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=8069

Some crude MOSFET oscillator circuit as done on youtube might light it up if you manage to match the impedance of inductors and get about right frequency. Such circuits are tricky.

Unfortunately: There are no standards in this field of induction lamps. Philips made the QL for their proprietary HF generator, and so Osram/Sylvania Endura/Icetron and others.
For the round Chinese ones, I don't know if they have large range of HF generators, as there is no standards for the operating frequency for induction lamps.

these types show up on EBAY sometimes and you might find someone with drivers listed separately but the Chinese ones where often sold as a kit and NOT separate
