INDUCTION LIGHTING

Magnetic induction lamps are basically fluorescent lamps with electromagnets wrapped around a part of the tube instead of the traditional electrodes found in normal fluorescent lamps. In induction lamps the lamp ballast takes the incoming mains AC voltage [or DC voltage in the case of 12V and 24V ballasts] and rectifies it to DC. Solid state circuitry then converts this DC current to a very high frequency output which is between 210-270KHz for low frequency and 2.5-6.5 MHz for high frequency fittings, depending on lamp design.
