I was wondering if anyone had ever tried to convert a flatbed scanner for use as an exposure box? Does anyone know if a scanner bulb has the proper wavelength for exposure? I've got a scrap scanner that potentially could be modified with stop/start switches to simply 'run' back and forth for a period of time. Any thoughts on this, anyone?

Did you connect the foil to the earth/ground conductor?

If not I suggest you do, otherwise it might become live if a fault develops.

The partn umber and photo indicates they emit UVA which is non-hazardous unless you do something stupid like stare at it from close range or hold the tube next to your skin for ages whilst it's on.

will this lamps and ballast work together? or will the lamps burn?
The ballast has a bunch of lamps listed in its label:

Types                   |         Line Current 120 V
4/3 F32T8/U         |      1.72/1.46
4/3 F32T8/WM     |      1.59/1.37
4/3 F28T8            |      1.51/1.30
4/3 F25T8            |      1.39/1.20
4/3 F15T8            |      1.04/0.89

GE Instant-Start 120-Volt Electronic Ballast Model#: 71038

According to the picture, the F15T8 is not listed  so is not suitable for the tube you've linked to.

Hi,

I'm new here.

Can you tell me which incarnation of the PIC16F84 was used on this project?

RS stock about 7 different types that operate at different frequency's

 I just found a PIC16C54 and a PIC16F57 (28pin) , would any of these work?

Cheers
