New Fluorescent Lamp and Ballast Design for Rapid Starting

Nov 01, 1952

This paper presents technical material which led to the rapid-start lamp and ballast. Lamp and ballast characteristics have been integrated in a manner to produce a fluorescent lighting system with unusual characteristics. It combines the desirable features of both of the two older systems, switch start and instant start. It eliminates the less desirable features of both.
