Thorn Jet1 70/50W HPS/MH fixture

Click to view full size image

This was so cool looking fixture that I had to get one myself. Its new and has (probably) datecode 37/11 so I would guess its from 2011. Its designed to 50w or 70w HPS or 70w MH and features Tridonic Atco OMBS 70/50 A603W magnetic ballast and Tridonic ZRM 2-ES/C ignitor. Not sure if the price I paid is cheap or not but it cost me 160EUR. I do especially like the compact size of this fixture. Someday, When I have big enought yard to have a real yard light its gonna be this one, with MH lamp.

Now the question is, As far as I know, this fixture is designed to be used with tubular lamps. The thing is that currently I dont have any tubular HPS or MH lamps. Is there any disadvantages using elliptical ones like Philips Master CityWhite CDO-ET plus 70W? Local lamp shop only had those.

You can use elliptical CMH lamps in this fixture, but with installation on a lamppost, if the optics is suited for tubular lamps, the beam shape will be worser.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Anyone know what the voltage requirements are for a 50W M110 metal halide lamp?
