What are the preferred methods of mounting fluorescent lamps?
Any method that does not put stress on the glass envelopes and/or the lead to the glass seal on the lamp end is acceptable. Most common methods are to solder the leads (with a strain relief bend) directly into a PC board, or to secure the lamp ends with a custom silicone end cap for greater shock/vibration isolation.
