What you are looking at is two pictures of the flor. light bar out of an old scanner. When your scanner dies, (meaning that it won't scan correctly, but the lamp still lights), you can pull the lamp and the transformer board out to use for custom lighting. The voltage that is applied to the board is 5 volts dc and it lights up just fine. So let your mind run wild. Mine is! Now, I know that I need another 1/2 dozen more lights to complete what's going through my mind!!!!!
