parallel cathode preheating (of a discharge lamp)

type of preheating of the electrodes of a discharge lamp in which these electrodes are fed by separate circuits

NOTE Each electrode is usually connected across a low voltage winding which may be part of the ballast and provides the preheating current. In certain circuits, this low voltage is automatically decreased after the arc has struck.
