A fluorescent lamp or fluorescent tube is a gas-discharge lamp that uses electricity to excite mercury vapor. Unlike incandescent lamps, fluorescent lamps always require a ballast to regulate the flow of power through the lamp. The following circuit diagram and schematic shows 12VDC Fluorescent Lamp Driver consists of 100uf 25V Electrolytic Capacitor, 2 of 0.01uf 25V Ceramic Disc Capacitor, 0.01uf 1KV Ceramic Disc Capacitor, 1K 1/4W Resistor, 2.7K 1/4W Resistor, IRF510 MOSFET, TLC555 Timer IC, 6V 300mA Transformer, 4W Fluorescent Lamp, Board, Wire, Heatsink For Q1.
