Does anyone have a source (in europe) for replacement cfl tubes for TFT displays? /Froggy
i just think , what kind of ckts these cfl lamps has to drive the cfl rods. i want to create my own cfl driver ckt for fun ! i hope it will not that much tuff ! thank you !
I need circuit diagram of cfl driver circuit from 12V DC. Can anybody help me on this.
Hello I have the idea to design a battery-operated ballast for a 5W cfl. I made this schematic based on a push-pull topology, but I'm not sure if this topology is the right one for a cfl ballast. In a lot of schematics I see half-bridge designs. Is it better to use this topology for the
Hi all At the moment I'm designing a cfl ballast, running from a 12V battery. The ballast uses the push-pull topology to create a secondary alternating voltage. With an LC oscillation circuit the cfl is first preheated, then frequency is changed to let LC oscillate to ignite the lamp. When the lamp ignited, frequency is changed to the burning fr
hi all recently i changed my old bulb with a new cfl (compact fluorescent lamp). but there is a problem; when i switched off the lamp, it begins to flicker with a time constant of about 2s. i searched for the reason and i found this problem. it caused by a small neon indicator inside the switch. it used with a large resistor (100~150k) and need
I require a Transformer design software for cfl electronic ballast working in Flyback topology with flyback transformersin solar applications like lanterns, street lights etc.. . Is there any software available for Flyback transformer design. If available please any provide.
One of my friend gave me an emergency light with 11 watt cfl (AS shown in the photo) which operates with an Push pull inverter circuit powered with 6 volt 10 Ah battery. It has a peculiar problem which he coudnt solve. Initially the tube was blackened, and i replaced it. Within 10 minutes i lost the tube due to blackening at the ends. I tried with
I a designg a cfl ballast from 12V DC input to 18W ouput (50VRMS & 360mA current) using a push pull transformer. The cfl used is Osram Dulux L series 18W lamp with preheat open circuit voltage of 190V and current of 750mA with 2.4S pre-heating time at 66KHz frequency . The running voltage is 50Vrms and 360mA Irms at Frun of 38KHz. How can I design
Hello, Would i be correct in thinking that the following cfl ballast control IC (IR21571)does NOT actaully "regulate" the current in the cfl? Page 14 details what the current sense resistor does. -It just seems to be for detecting fault conditions, and when it does it shuts
To mention a simple fact that invalidates your calculation, the cfl characteristic is actually far from resistive behaviour. It's rather a typical electric arc/gas discharge characteristic with a constant voltage drop plus some negative inner resistance. See a measurement of a mains operated 36W/120cm fluorescent lamp for reference. In addi
hello, the offline cfl ballast on page one of ...does zero voltage switching of the fets (zvs). In fact, all Fluorescent ballasts of reasonable quality give zvs operation. so.....please could you tell why an engineer at a big lighting exhibition told me that the fets intri
Hello, Page 3 of the following shows an offline cfl ballast please may i ask......does R1 continue to draw bias current from the DC bus after start-up, whilst the lamp is running?
Hi, I wanted the details of the Transformer and the PCB Layout in PDF format of Oh no! Not Another cfl Inverter. The article is found at: I have also attached some more details regarding the Transformer number of windings. But, there is no mention of the Gauge (Thic
Actually i don't know how to desing fuse for 20 watts cfl bulb. What i am doning , i have supply 220v to a room and the condintion is in a single room it can use a cfl bulb of 20 watts only, if a person in a room use cfl bulb more than 20 wats it should blow the fuse, acordind ti my basic knowledge i have calculate fllowing: give, (...)
cfl lamps are hot cascode. LCD lamps are usually cold cathode. It doesn't sound like a good thing to do, although I haven't looked at circuit details. Hot cathode lamps have a heater and a preheat cycle. Keith
I buy Sylvania cfl's. The color temperature of 3k is pure white and even though they are also made in China they last for years. A couple failed and after phoning Sylvania they sent coupons for replacements. The free cfl's from my electrical utility company were recalled and replaced because the Chinese manufacturer stole another company's certi
I found 3w cfl in market. Bought a cartoon to put as nigh lamp, in stairs and here and there replacing high power cfls to conserve energy.Within a week it was found that most of them turned black at their ends with diminished light. Some of them even failed to lit. I opened them and found similar type of circuit inside instead of hi-frequency switc
What's the difference between a cfl and a Ccfl?
You have got the wrong sort of cfl. The dimmer works by pulsing the mains on and off rapidly, the cfls have an oscillator in them that is running slower then the dimmers pulses so the results are unpredictable. You can get cfls that sort out the pulsing mains and appear to dim correctly. Frank
Dear All Could you help me :how value of R.C,L must be change for drive my 4watt 120Vac fluorescent tube. In this schema 11w .240v cfl lamp driver. Thank you in advance lam 62317
I have made a circuit to turn on and off 2 cfls remotely. For the remote control part, I used RC5 protocol. For turning the cfls on and off, I used triac. I have a few questions here. Firstly what I did was: To turn the cfl on, the microcontroller kept the triac turned on as signal was applied to gate continuously until the command to (...)
Could you please give me a design for high frequency(30kHz-50kHz) power amplifier(up to about 25W). I'm gonna drive a cfl tube using this power amplifier instead of conventional ballast circuit. Best Regards!
It may be a problem with noise affecting the microcontroller and nOt the IR receiver. Are the supply lines properly filtered? Maybe you need further filtering. I have encountered such a problem in the past and the problem was due to noise affeting the microcontroller. That circut was used to control a cfl. The solution was: placing 100nF capacitor
The fact is you cant run a cfl with JUST a dc volatge. You need a small circuit of inverter which boosts the volatge which will then ignite the internal gases to glow. There are ample designs on the net and google is your friend. Cheers
Hi friends, I have a few questions... > I saw document for cfl lamps circuit In that they are discussed about d resonance . Actually, My mind is focused on Why d Resonance is applied/used for this application? >>and what are the other applications using resonance?(find attachment) > I got one simple idea to add this one battery in
this is a 32 watts 220V ac cfl lamp when it is switched off for the night the lamp flickers or rather blinks at regular intervals of approx 1 minute even though there is no power supply to the bulb Can anyone please give an explanation why it is behaving in this eerie manner at night? thanks
There are specialized dimmers for cfl bulbs. They operate differently from the traditional dimmers for incandescent bulbs.

Hai friends, I want a internal circuit of cfl bulb for PCB Project. if you have that circuit please sent to me. Thank you Salim
Yes, it is possible. But your battery will drive the cfl for around 1 and half hour or little more. Is it okay??? Any simple inverter circuit will do, all you need is a 6v to 230v transformer.

hi to all, i am working with nanometer range interconnect design. which numerical simulation tool like fdtd i can use? can i use fdtd. will it obey cfl limit.
to jian: i u use any simulation tool for nanometer range , will it obey cfl condition.the cell size will be very small for operation.
Hi can anyone tell me how can I use cfls (compact fluorescent lamps) with open heaters like the Ccfls (cold cathode fluorescent lamps). The last use high voltage and have not heaters. I put a cfl on a small inverter for Ccfl and operates. So I need a small converter from mains to high voltage, and if it's possible to (...)
ADI means Alternating direction implicit. you can read below para for more information, The nite-di erence time-domain (FDTD) method is formulated by an explicit nite-di erence scheme using central di erences on a staggered Cartesian grid (both in space and time) of Maxwell's equations. It is second-order accurate both in time and space. I

I have tried the Typical Application Circuit in MOC3021 datasheet, but i have too many problems! Triacs burns! With ALL(or most of them
hi guys... i have a problem... As a lot of construction work and digging up is going up in my area i face power cut sometimes.... its pain when ur exams are coming... so here what i have a rechargable 12v DC battery A 20W cfl... now... i wanna know how can i use it to make an emergency table lamp!
use... Renewable resources of energy use cycle for short distance instead of car.... use smart electronics circuits which detects the environment and adjust light and cooling/heating in the room or office.. use cfl lamps.
i have it and working fine too , but problem is that , it is use in ir remote circuit which is again working good , but when i switch on the node at which the cfl is connected , my whole circuits get off / or not responding ! with other node like fan , tube light , etc. it is working fine . one more thing , as cfl it is not ok with mobi

The fluorescent tube lights in my kitchen and basement don't use a starter. The tubes are called Rapid Start and have filaments that light and heat each end. The ballast is a transformer and produces a current-limited high voltage that starts the tube lights. They turn on almost immediately without flickering. cfl also don't have a starter. The
hello I have just taken apart a (240V rms, 50Hz) 15W Compact fluorescent bulb and done tests on it. The Input DC Bus has 110V of ripple on it (DC Bus goes from 220V to 330V with 10ms period. It's DC bus (following the diode bridge) has one 3.3uF , 400V electrolytic capacitor on it. It is Aishi GA series cap:-
Apart from what has been said regarding true and apparent power, the measurement may be inaccurate. I tested some electronic cfl, and found a real power input of +/- 5% around the nominal value. The power factor varied between 0.5 for a cheap no-name DIY market product and 0.71 for a major manufacturers product. See respective waveforms belo
