My flash tube in my Elinchrom Style 600RX burned, and I am looking for a new flash tube for it. It is hard to find them in stock anywhere. I was wondering if I can just get another brand, or some generic flash tube of the same wattage — are they standard components?

Most likely yes - of the firing voltage is the same . I tried to find it for the 24029 but no luck . Anyway you don't wanna do this . The pulse duration will be different most likely, also it is not really guaranteed that the power setting will work correctly any more . You have a very nice flash head why would you want other then the original part .
