without that bulb or a 60 volt GDT (Gas Discharge Tube) FAILURE IS CERTAIN!
the reason being that either of those small devises IS what provides the
NECESSARY POLARIZING to the GROUND RETURN and the HOT LEG INPUT!

ANY CIRCUIT has to have a COMMON ORIGIN PATH - this is what this small device provides - B&L only put it there BECAUSE THEY FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY that it was needed!

the florescent bulb has a strike voltage of 90 volts and then quickly falls off to 61.5 volts - NO AMPERAGE - and a follow thru voltage of 0.2 volts which enables frequency and polarization!

if you want to use a GDT maybe try one with a strike voltage of 60-90 volts.
don't know about their amperage involved or follow thru voltage would be,
so you would have to look up their datasheet for that.

BEST REGARDS!

Hello All
Sorry, i have no success with my setup!!!

any alternative to that GDT component?
