LED Tube Light Circuit Fitting in Standard Ballast Fixtures

In this article we will study a simple LED tube light circuit which could be directly replaced with faulty 40 watt T17 fluorescent tubes and fitted directly on the existing fixture. Thus the circuit is compatible with all standard iron ballast fixture assemblies. How Conventional Fixtures are Wired As shown in the below diagram, traditional … Read more

Mains 20 Watt Electronic Ballast Circuit

The post explains a simple 20 watt fluorescent ballast circuit using a single chip FAN7711 from Fairchild semiconductor. The proposed mains 220V operated, 20 watt fluorescent ballast circuit is built around an LCC resonant tank and a half-bridge network. Implementing Zero Voltage Switching The main features and operations may be understood with the following explanation: … Read more
