Ballastronix H42 CWI ballast, odd!

First of all, I'm back after quite a bit of inactivity! ^_^

Now for this thing, that's an oddball! A 125W mercury, Constant-Wattage Isolated ballast for 120/240 operation! Too bad the wires have been cut, because this is otherwise a perfectly working ballast! Luckily I was able to find the proper 10uF capacitor for this ballast, and I was also able to pull the wires out of their support tape without damaging the latter so I'll simply solder new wires and slide them back under the tape!

It's very silent, you basically don't hear it at all. But it takes forever to start a lamp! The thing's been running for 5 minutes as I write this and it's barely at 50% brightness xD.

Oh and this was the perfect opportunity to give my CGE H125DX42 a try, on the proper ballast finally!
