Lithuania 1000w mercury lamp on H36 ballast « on: October 05, 2020, 06:07:52 PM » Author: WorldwideHIDCollectorUSA
These lamps should be run on H34 ballasts because they run at 130v 8.0a rather than the 265v 4a needed for a H36 ballast.

According to Osram Sylvania’s mercury lamp catalog it says:

CAUTION: The 1000-watt lamp is available in two types- the H34 High Current and the H36 Low Current. The former has a nominal operating current of 8 amperes and a rated average life of 16,000 hours, as compared with 4 amperes and 24,000 hours respectively, for the latter. They are not interchangeable and must be operated on ballasts designed for that lamp type. Lamps and ballasts could be destroyed if H34, H36 lamps are interchanged. Consult warning label.
