Premium-quality glow switches range for igniting conventional electromagnetic fluorescent lamps


  • Premium quality ensures trouble-free operation; extremely low early replacements reduce maintenance costs

  • Premium quality ensures trouble-free operation

  • Safe end-of-life behaviour prevents safety issues

  • Low maintenance costs through extremely low early replacement levels

  • Redesigned canister top with a special notch; easy to install and replace with a screwdriver or with improved grip reducing installation time and cost

  • Secure, safe and fast lamp ignition according to IEC 155 international standard

  • Flame-retardant components for additional security

  • 2-pin ignitor in plastic (flame-retardant polycarbonate) canister with radio‑interference suppression capacitor

  • Premium reliability with 12000 swiches guaranteed

  • S2 starters for ignition of low-voltage fluorescent TL lamps and series/single application in high voltage for lower wattages (4 - 22W)

  • Secure, safe and fast ignition on both inductive (L) and capacitive (LC) lighting systems acc. to IEC 60155

  • S10 starters for ignition of high-voltage fluorescent TL lamps for higher wattages (4 - 65W)

  • Controlled preheating of the lamp filaments and sufficient pulse voltage for longer lamp life (>25% compared with cheap starters)

  • Premium reliability with less than 100 early failures per million (<100 p.p.m.)

  • Canister shape designed for a better grip while installing and replacing the starter

  • Reliable starting behaviour and lifetime
