1960's GE M-400. Are you sure it's 100w? Looks like it has a 400w lamp in it.

Power provider: Southern California Edison (SCE)

-Date decoder of some US lamps 1960-present.
-Switch and receptacle collector.
-I'll save what I can! Smiley

There's a 95% + chance that the luminaire is 400W...could be 250W, but that is unlikely.

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Unless you saw the inside components it’s a 400W 120/240V luminaire. Nice classic street light.

If this light is on a utility pole, it is either 120V or 240V. Around here they used all 240V MV street lights with PC sockets wired at 120V from 1965 to the late 80s. Before and after that time, all lights were 120V.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

Nice light. There are still two of these in my town and both worked up until a few months ago, but one still works.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

And this one which still works well, and is aside lots of newer AEL 115 FCO.
