Ok.. Ive done alot of reading about ODNO.. The magnetic ballasts that come with NO
fixtures are designed to drive a certain configuration of bulbs and thats it, thats the only reason why you cant use them from the best of my knowledge.. if for some reason you are a EE and can take it apart and redesign it to deliver more power to the bulbs.. well more power to you.. LOL
.. The ODNO projects involve purchasing an electronic ballast that has the ability to drive multiple lamps usually 4 and wire one bulb as if it was 4 bulbs.. the ballast will detect 4 bulbs of that length and apply the power needed for 4 bulbs.. its more tricking the ballast, then re-engineering the ballast.
