Electronic ballast with inverter protection and relamping circuits

Image Number 9 for United States Patent #5770925.

An electronic ballast (10) for powering at least one gas discharge lamp (20) comprising an AC-to-DC converter (100), an inverter (200), an output circuit (300), a relamping circuit (400), and an inverter protection circuit (500). Protection circuit (500) shuts down the inverter (200) in response to lamp removal or lamp failure. Following replacement of a failed lamp with an operational lamp, relamping circuit (400) provides restarting of the inverter (200) and ignition of the operational lamp by momentarily disabling the inverter protection circuit (500).
