I have tried to find printed documentation on this UV
eraser. Internet Archive seems to suggest Bytek never had
the BUV-3B documents on their website.
UPDATE: I have seen an image with "ME-42" sticker on what
appears to be a BUV-3B.
4W/6W/8W FS-5 Starter with Condenser The
FS-5 is all over Eee-buy and local hardware stores.
T-5 600V 75W Miniature Bi-Pin Short Bracket Tapped
Fluorescent Lampholder Starter Base; Turn Lock -
Leviton 660W-250V 18AWG
Caution! My BUV-3B has a
line cord with Blue [Neutral], Brown [Hot], and Black
[Ground]. This does not seem to follow what I would expect,
Black, White, and Green.
To be clear, the SP48 has two Black leads. There is NO lead
for Ground, instead, the Black lead from the AC cord
attaches to a frame-mounted screw that fastens the Lamp
My SWAG -
AC wire to frame ground is GROUND [existing wire is Black]
AC wire to microswitch is HOT [existing wire is Brown]
AC wire to Ballast is NEUTRAL [existing wire is Blue]
Note: I have no
documents to support my guess. Proceed at your own risk!
As I was gently moving wires around my BUV-3B, the AC line
cord for Neutral cleanly snapped off at the Panduit crimp
fastener. First time I have ever had that happen.
I will change all loose crimp fasteners to wire nuts. My
SWAG of what happened, the wire insulation was stripped
-BUT- they nicked the solid wire. Crimp fasteners are
quicker to attach than wire nuts.
Might be the reason why it was taking so long to erase
