Manufacturer:Thorn Lighting
Model:155/501
Power Consumption:5' 50w T8 lamp
Working Voltage:240-250v AC
Cap Type:Small 2 pin
Cap Finish:Paxolin base
Circuit Type:Leading PF circuit (series capacitor)
Comments:Exclusively rated for the 5ft 50w T8 lamp which was on a leading PF circuit. The 50w lamp runs at a higher voltage than regular five footers, so regular universal switches are unsuitable. Thorn were the only known manufacturer of 50w starters. Soon after the GE takeover, this model was dropped from the range and 50w was included on thier 155/801 6-8ft switches.
