Philips MASTER CosmoWhite CPO-TW Xtra 60W CMH Lamp on test/demo board

Philips MASTER CosmoWhite CPO-TW Xtra 60W CMH Lamp on test/demo board

Click to view full size image

Here is this lamp ready to be lit on the test/demo board that we built. Although this lamp is technically universal burning, the literature states that longer life will be achieved in the horizontal position, so we made a bracket to hold the lamp in that position.

How the hot restrike of the lamp looks like with the ballast?

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.

I don't know, it's never happened. I don't like deliberately hot-restriking lamps as I believe it can have an effect on lamp life.

Not for short term, and for sure less with electronic ballasts.

Thanks both, I built display/test boards for all the different types of discharge lamps I have, it makes things easier, not to mention neater, than wires all over the place.

Good score on getting a Cosmo set, everything Cosmo isn’t easy to get hold of, can never understand why these didn’t take off like they should have, the Cosmo was Philips’s engineering perfection of the halide lamp! Run up in seconds, excellent lumen maintenance, state of the art ceramic tubes!

Sadly we never even saw them here, but it’s nice to see the 45 watts in Andy’s street when we do the early morning pick up on the way to the meet

I got this along with some other stuff from Cal a while back. He seems to have vanished from the planet, sent a few emails recently with no reply

The main thing is you got it, this sort of lighting stuff, ( for those not familiar with Cosmo ), is the kit you can’t just go out and buy!

I help Ria with the fabrication side of the boards, and having a Dremel is a great time saver.
