The 1596 is a chassis based on the Xitron1500 family load/line switch chassis for the 2574R ballast test instrument. It connects a standard ballast to the 2574R using the wiring colors.
The 1596 incorporates a phase programmable line switch and has space for up to 5 additional 1580 series line switches which may be used for additional line switching or for line source selection, configurable by the user.
