Author Topic: Wanted - 24VDC fluorescent ballasts from RTS bus  (Read 1017 times)

I am looking for some additional 24 volt DC ballasts for fluorescent bulbs. I have the ones that came with my 1994 RTS bus, but some of them are defective. I would like to get some more to replace the defective ones and to have some spares. The ones I have are made by Luminator, and they power 2 T-8 bulbs each.

I hope someone here saved them when they stripped their bus and then decided on a different kind of light, so they are just sitting in a box somewhere.

I will also consider other ballasts from other busses. The main thing is they need to be 24 volts and work on T8 bulbs, the ones that are 1" in diameter and 4 feet long and 32 watts.

I think the ballasts that were in my bus were single tube either 32 watt or 40 watt 36"  or 48" bulbs . I used some of them to modivy 120 volt light fixtures to 24 volt DC and they work great. Jerry

Those 24v luminators will even work with regular Flouresent (2 pin Filiiments on each end)  not just the single pin T-8

sorry - I throw all mine away

I probably have a half-a-dozen in the wirepile in the garage.

You can have them for shipping cost.

My email is in my profile, or PM me.
