Two electronic drivers for gas-discharge lamps have been tested for the immunity of lightning induced common mode currents. A series of tests with increasing threat level have been applied, given equipment available in the TU/e high-voltage laboratory. One type of unit turned out to be damaged by CM currents of the order of 100 A. This unit proved also quite sensitive to lightning in practice. The other unit remains functional with 2.5 kA.
