Fluoro Inverter - Electronic Ballast - 12 Volt - 40 Watt




12 Volt, 40 Watt "Fluoro Inverter"

This fluoro inverter (also known as electronic ballast) allows the use of a single 240V fluorescent tube in a 12 volt DC power system. Slim design for retrofitting in existing fluoro battens.

Suitable for one T8 Tube (diameter about 25mm) - not suitable for T5 (thin tubes).
The T5 is the newest technology and is more expensive than the T8 in many applications. The 5 number indicates the diameter of the bulb in eighths of an inch. So, a T8 is 8/8 inches in diameter, or 1 inch, and the T5 is 5/8 inch.

Has also been used successfully to run 32 Watt circular fluoro.

- Sinewave - high efficiency with low current drain
- Protection against reverse polarity connection
- Connection to both input and output via screw terminals located on PCB
- Compact and lightweight aluminium heatsink construction
- Pre-punched slots at either end of heatsink for ease of installation

- Fluorescent tube rating: 30-40W
- Operating voltage: 9-15V DC
- Full load current 2A
- Dimensions (mm): 150(L) x 40(W) x 30 (H)

1. Disconnect the battery supply before contact with any component of the Inverter
2. Ensure that the wire used for connecting the inverter has an insulation rating of minimum 240 volt
3. When wiring, use an in-line fuse holder with a fuse (5A for 12V) and place in the positive line
4. Ensure that the two (2) filaments (one either end) on the tube are connected to the module connectors as marked (i.e. F1 and F2)
5. Check that polarity is not reversed (positive to negative etc) and that correct input voltage is applied
6. Mount in a well ventilated area
7. Locate the inverter as close as possible to fluoro tube
Note: We recommend the use of fibre washers with locating screws (if screws are being used) when securing module. If metal washers are used, ensure they (or any other metal surface e.g. screwdriver) DO NOT touch transistors. If transistors are shorted, damage to the module may result which void warranty.

Northern NSW (Tweed Heads to Yamba, including Evans Head, Byron Bay and Ballina); the Far North Coast Hinterland (Grafton via Lismore to Murwillumbah) and out West (Casino to Tenterfield, including Drake and Tabulam, as well as Woodenbong and Bonalbo)

For larger system we also go up to Brisbane or down to Coffs Harbour and even Glen Innes. Other places by arrangement.

We are Open for Business

Rainbow Power Company would like to assure our customers that we are trading (not quite as normal). System designers are working from home and can customise a quote for you (free of charge) over the phone and online. We are still dispatching and posting items, with safety precautions in place. You can still order online or over the phone, and pick up items from RPC (our show room is closed however, and appointments must be made to pick up orders). We are still doing site inspections, keeping the recommended social distancing.
