TS8 Standard 4-125W

Electronic Starter Switch for single 4-125W fluorescent lamp circuits.

The soft start system utilised in the TubeSaver first pre-heats the lamp cathodes in the tube to their working temperature, before applying a controlled voltage pulse to strike the arc. This method of ignition prevents unnecessary damage on the cathode inside the tube and significantly prolongs the lifespan of the tube.

TS8 also works as a fluorescent lamp safety starter as it has a built in safety monitoring system, which shuts down the system in the event of a fault. This prevents dangerous overheating and the annoying flickering, which is associated with the old-fashioned glow type starters.

Is used:

Factory halls, offices and all rooms where "soft" start of the tube is wanted, and where a start time of approx. 1.5 seconds is sufficient.


Disadvantages – None, only advantages !

- Ordinary glow starters can immediately and very simply be substituted with TubeSaver. -
