All gas discharge lamps operated on a 50 Hz alternating current supply are really flickering off and on 100 times per second. In normal conditions, the human eye does not notice the fact. But when a moving object like rotating parts of machinery is followed, at the certain speed it may appear to be stationary or moving in series of jerks or rotating slowly than its actual speed. This effect of producing an illusion of reality is known as the stroboscopic effect and this is obviously a possible source of danger in factories, machine shops etc. In fluorescent tube lighting the stroboscopic effect can be eliminated either by using a three lamp unit in which each lamp is connected to a separate phase of a 3 phase, 4 wire supply or by using a two-lamp unit in single phase supply each having its own choke but there is only one condenser connected in series with one of the lamps.
Due to the presence of inductive choke the power factor of the tube lamp is about 0.50.
