Re: More T8 Stuff

With all this talk about T-8 ballasts, let me just add a warning:
there are out there electronic ballasts that can drive 1, 2, 3 and 4
lamps. The 4 lamp models have always ballast factors < 1. Three lamp
models can be found with ballast factors as high as 1.2. So it is 
possible to have a 3 lamp configuration that produces as much ligth as
a 4 lamp one, by just replacing the ballast. If one is designing a
lamp fixture from scratch, it just doesn't make sense to use the 4 lamp
