200 watt high pressure sodium ovs

200 watt high pressure sodium ovs

I decided to get my friend a birthday present that he won't ever forget and that he will be happy about, so I took him to a warehouse filled with streetlights and I also grabbed this ovs, he got one as well and I got one Cooper shoe box for my other friend who will most likely use it as a grow light. As you can see it lights up the yard very well. He wants to get more streetlights now. I'm going to help him put it up on a pole in his yard. Mine is running a 200 watt venture metal halide bulb, it puts out a very nice color and is very bright.

Nice! The original Cooper designs (OVM, OVS, and OVC) were the best. All downhill from there.

I didn't know a 200w HPS ballast could run 200w PSMH...

LEDs = Downgrade 85% of the applications.

The OCV is probably higher on the MH lamp, but the ignitor allows the lamp strike anyway. Other than being underdriven a little the lamp is probably fine once warmed up. If you run a 100W MV on a 100W HPS ballast it will light with the ignitor but not warm up but without the ignitor it won't start at all.

The OVM is honestly one of my favorite cobraheads along with the 2nd-gen Westy OV-25 and LM Unistyle 175 and 400.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

How did you find this "warehouse full of streetlights"?

Yeah I like the OVM too. Has all the modern features but still retains some of that Westy character. Basically a chubbier gray version of the "L-250" version of the OV-25.

Yeah we know this is an OVM but this and the OVM are awesome. It's cool you have both. Someday if you ever make a display they'd go great side-by-side.
