Fluorescent Light Parts Diagram, How to Work
Neon (fluorescent lamp) TL lamps are probably the most widely used lights today. Neon fluorescent lamps (Fluorescent Lamp) are often used as lighting devices in factories, warehouses, shopping malls, schools and also in offices. But along with the development of LED Lights Technology as lights. LED lamp adoption rate is increasing and will gradually replace the Fluorescent Lighting Lamp (Fluorescent).
The term TL is an extension of “Tube Luminescent” or there is also a mention of “Tube Lamp” is a “Tube” Tube Lamp. In everyday life, we can find 2 types of Technology on TL Lamp (Tube Lamp) that is Fluorescent Technology (Neon) and LED Technology (Light Emitting Diodes).
How the TL Fluorescent Lamp Works
Basically, TL Lamp with Fluorescent Technology (FL) is a vacuum tube lamp with incandescent wire in both ends (Electrode). The tube is filled with Mercury and low pressure gas argon. The glass tube is also coated by the phosphor layer (phosphor). When Electrical Flow Flows, Electrodes will heat up and cause Electrons to move from one end to the other.
The electrical energy will also result in the previous mercury being a liquid converting to gas. Electron displacement will collide with Atomic Mercury so that Electron Energy will rise to a higher level. Electrons will release light when energy The electrons return to their normal levels.
TL Fluorescent Lamp Circuit
The Fluorescent TL lamp requires a Starter and Ballast to turn it on. Starter Fluorescent TL Fluorescence is an automatic switch that helps heat the electrodes for the transfer of electrons in the Fluorescent Tube. It should be remembered that in order to heat the electrodes in order that the gases contained in the Lamp Tube (TL) may fluoresce, a high voltage up to 400 Volts is required. After the ignition process is complete, the Bi-metal on the starter will open (open).
Thus the Starter can be removed from the TL Fluorescent Lamp Series due to the use of Starter only during ignition. While the Ballast contained in the Neon / TL Fluorescent TL Lights Circuit serves as a limiting magnitude of the current and stabilizes. The current in order to operate the TL Fluorescent Lamp on the appropriate electrical characteristics. There are 2 types of Ballasts, namely Inductive Ballast and Inductive Ballast (Electronic Ballast).
