PL cylinder fixture « on: July 13, 2019, 01:58:02 PM » Author: Cole D.
At Habitat I saw a PL fluorescent cylinder wall fixture. I've kind of been wanting another since I donated the one I used to have. I notice this one has a small magnetic fixture wired to the back of the fixture. They wanted $3.50 but I didn't get it because there was no lamp in it.

Have anyone seen these type of PL cylinders with a magnetic ballast? The ones I usually saw, like I had just had the cylinder started inside, but I don't remember a ballast unless it was hidden somewhere.

I recently got a Lumark one from eBay. It had been listed forever. It takes two PL-7 lamps. The ballasts are hidden in there behind fibreglass wool insulation. They are quite well glued in there with some kind of varnish or heat resistant epoxy and the fibreglass is glued on there. I never had a full view of the ballasts because I don't want to tear it. I intend to install it outside some day. It has a plastic cylinder, though.

Could you get some pics up? I never saw that one.

Cool light. The one I saw today was bronze plastic, and had a clear prismatic cylinder similar to the one I had before.

Yeah it looked similar to that but with a clear/prismatic cylinder. The ballast was the small type similar to an undercabinet fixture ballast and on the back of the fixture.

Well I went back to get it and somebody apparently walked off with the shade, because I couldn't find it anywhere. And what stinks was I could have gotten a bulb for it cheap, because Habitat also has a ton of NOS PL lamps.
