A device for programming the intensity of fluorescent lamps



A device for programming the intensity of fluorescent lamps



J Econ Entomol 60(3): 883-884



A simple and compact device for controlling the intensity of a 40-watt fluorescent lamp over a 24-hr. period is described. Day length and dusk and dawn periods can be adjusted to bring about or increase mating in crepuscular insects such as mosquitoes. The device can be used to maintain a given light intensity despite changes in external illumination with a range of 40:1. The controlling photocell can also be used directly to program humidifiers and heating and cooling units that dissipate up to 60 watts.
