High inrush loads

Answer

High Inrush loads draw a higher amount of current or amperage when first turned on, compared to the amount of current required to continue running. An example of a high inrush load is a light bulb, which may draw 20 or more times its normal operating current when first turned on. This is often referred to as lamp load, however  we must consider inrush data for external drivers ability to provide the lamp with the required start up current.
