Ok, on flouresent light fixtures. What is the typical
power consumption of a floursent light fixture when it is turned on. How
long does it take to the system to reach equilibrium. I guess what I am
asking for is a graph of power consumption vs. time for a flouresent
light fixture. Thank you.
After the initial warm up period (maybe as much as a couple of seconds) the
power consumption should remain nearly constant at the value given on the
package for very long times (years).
