AIMOST since its inception in 1938, fluorescenr lighting has led a specracular career. A completely new type of illumination, it produced light not in brilliant "spots", but in long luminous tubes restfuliy diffused, lacking in glarc, r,vith shadows kept to a minimum. Cooler, more efilcient, it was easier to see and work by than any light availabTe before. Fluorescent lighting, infact, was so obviously superior that within 15 years it supplied more electric lighting than aII other sources in the nation combined. And it has now become the standard source of illumination for new con-

ligbting at

tts finest

struction one of the best methods of - and modernizing older buildings. In srores, oftces, just about evefyfactories, homes, schools where fluorescent is upping the level of lighting and working eficiency. No one expects fluorescent lighting to entirely supplant the famrliar incandescent type, which continues to have its specialized applications. But for the uniform general lighting of broad areas, fluorescent has no equal in its efitienc1 as a" Iight-producer and in the quality of the light it produces. Let's examrne a few of its major advantages.

Fluorescent lighting is definitely an Electronic Age development. Like the X-ray, television and radar, the fluorescent lamp actually is an electronic device. But, though simple in principle it requires great care in manufacture and took years of research to develop.

LUMEN EFFICIENCY DOUBTED When the first u-hite fluorescent lamps reached the mar-

ket in 1938, their ratecl light output rvas 30 lumens per u,att. In less than a decacle, Sylvania had doubled light olrtput to 60 lumens per watt. Toda,v, througJr the development of the nerv stabilizecl phosphor coatings, actual 1r-rmen output througl-rout life for S1-lvania fluorescent
lamps is cousistmrll Ligl:er than publishecl ratinqs.

Normallv, arry lamp, incanclescent or fluorescent, loses a certain amount of brightness rvith age. Ancl because it n as largely impossible to preciict light output afrer a thousand or more hours' use light or"rtput ratings applied to initial bilghtnes: onfu - until very recentiv. Todal-, because of Svivania improvements in the fluorescent coating ancl more exact control of the quantity of argon gas inside each iamp, Sylvanra light output ratings are published not only for initial brightness but also for ,u"iug" light output throughout the rated lamp life.

LAMP LIFE TRIPTED In general, a lluorescent lamp rr-ill last as long as the coating on the tungsten filaments of its cathocles. Until a ferv vears ago, the best cathocie coatings lr'ere rated to last onl\. 25OO hours. Then S1-1r-ania scientists came up rvith an amazingner.v discovery that tripled the rated life of thecathocle coating. As a result, 1'or-rr S1'1r'ania lamp

IAMP COTORS RIGIDLY STANDARDIZED Keeping lamp colors air,vavs the same is an extremel,v tricly problem. To obtain the various tones of light in fluoresCent lamps, fluorescent cr1'stals must be blended to strict formulis. Only by the most rigid controls and constant checking is it possible to assure color constancy alnravs the same for each color the length of each lamp. Svlvania lamp colors are as uniform and standardtzed as scientific manufacturing can make them.

FTUORESCENT BALLASTS

All fluorescent lamps require ballasts. Syivania does not manufacture ballasts, but all types needed for use with Sylvania iamps are avallable from other manufacrurers.
The use of a ballast. is necessary because any fluorescenr iamp is fundamentally an electricai discharge source and its current would rise to a value which would destroy the lamp, unless controlled. The ballast is the conrroi

device which value.

limits the current to the proper operaring

The ballast must be designed for the specific size and tvpe of lamp used, as well as for the voltage and frequency bf the electrical system. It is necessary to use the correcc type of ballast for each lamp to prevenr filament damage,

which mav cause burnout.

Certain shades of fluorescent "white" are often chosen for their psychological effect. In general the cool tones produce a more eflrcient "working" atmosphere, the warm tones a more relaxing "social" atmosphere. Depending on the shade of "lvhite" chosen, the lamp will vary somewhat in the amount of light it delivers, since some colors are higher in their light efficiency than others.

All Sylr.ania standard start lamps have a rar.ed average life of 7500 hours. In any one installation, about 50/6 of these lamps u'ill burn out before 7500 hours, 50/p after that. But the light output of all lamps still burning decreases rvith age. Tests and experience shorv it's good practice to plan a complete lanrp replacement somervhere benveen 4000 and 6000 hours after the initial installation. Because b16000 hours )'ou've already receiveci rhe bett 80f/6 of their lamp life. Bevond this time, burnouts rvill occur more and more frequentll- and lamps still burning rvill gir-e less and less lighc but still use as much electricitl'.

In large industrial and commercial fluorescent installations, replacing lamps one at a time as thel- burn out is trrost expensive, chiefl,v because it requires such a tremendous lrplicdtiott of maintenance time and leg u'ork.

Why do preheol lomps require o slorler? The preheat lamp operates on a lower voltage than is required to start the lamp. A starter is used to permic preheating of the cathodes sufflciently to start the flow of electrons.
