Lighting Starters


A lighting starter slots in next to the fluorescent tube on the lamp frame. When the light switch is turned on, the starter sends a jolt of electricity to the gas inside the fluorescent tube, which provides the energy that makes the light fluoresce. If the lighting starter fails to work the fluorescent tube will not light up.
Types of Starters
Starters are suitable for all types of fluorescent tubes and fittings. There are three basic starters for which to choose:
• Standard starters – These starters come in 4 – 80 W versions and 70 to 125 W versions
• Series starters – There series type starters are suitable for fittings in series. More common in older types of fluorescent light fittings.
• Electronic starters – With a wattage range of 18 to 125 W, these electronic starters are a one stop solution to all electronic ballast fittings. Their gentle start is designed to reduce wear and tear on the lamp.
Differences
The main differences between all the starters is, how much wattage they can support. So making sure that you know the total wattage, input voltage and application before selecting the starter is very important.
