Siteco DL 500 full cut-off

These are modern and yet very good quality luminairs. The ones here are full cut-off (flat glass) and the lighting is very even and the glare is pretty low, which means they are quite pleasant to the eye.

The optics are suitable for both coated elliptical lamps and clear tubular ones at the same time (according to Siteco). Here they are always fitted with coated lamps (I prefer coated ones anyway).
This one here is fitted with a Philips Master SON PIA PLUS 100W lamp.

These are probably my favorite modern luminairs.

Yes it's a not bad luminaire but the aluminium coated plastic reflector like in this latern degrades after some time, leaving black spot behind the lamp. We had many trouble in some of our SITECO SR laterns because the reflector went completely black.

Yeah, I have heard of that. But I thought that problem existed only with older generations of the SR luminairs. Are you sure it happens with the DL 500 too?

The Siteco website says the reflector on these is made of aluminium.
Here's a link (German):

Yes, look closely at your picture. You'll see the black soot- like stain in the upper section of the lamp. Actually it happens to all older plastic reflectors in combination with flat glass covers and higher lamp wattages, no matter if it is a SR, SQ or DL 500 fixture. Today the problem seems to be solved as the newer ones are made of aluminium, especially those for CMHs

You're right, I can see the black stain now. Well, that's not good.
That changes my mind a bit about these being "very" high quality.
One would expect that such thing doesn't happen with a luminaire like this, not within the first 10 years of it's life anyway.

The reflector isn't lined up very well either! I expect the heat could have caused it to distort or shift on its moorings. Shame as otherwise it's a decent looking lantern.

Can you see what's written on the bulb?

Say NO to DICTATORSHIP in the form of bulb/tube/ballast bans !!

The reflector settig is flexible in the lamp axis to attain the required light distribution so thats why you see the black line in the front of it. If you move the reflector foreward the line is covered by it self but the light pattern on the street changes. About 11 years ago I mounted a lot of these as spanwire version in the city of Bern. The first ones were comming with CDM-TT 70W lamps but now all new ones are Cosmowhite 60 and 45W.
