the beam “ballast”) is preserved, even with a reduced (from 35 cm to 20cm) bal-last bed, should the sleeper be fitted with a layer of ISOLGOMMA USP. As a consequence, up grading the rail track with ISOLGOMMA USP ballast servi-ce life will be guaranteed, even if the bal-last cushion thickness “h” is substantially reduced.

ballasts and most instant-start ballasts do not heat the electrodes once the lamps are operating to reduce lighting system power. A lighting system that does not meet ANSI guidelines for lamp current crest factor, lamp operating electrode voltage, lamp current, and ballast factor may also cause increased lamp-end darkening and reduced lamp life.
