EYE 50w Daylux and screw in ballast adapter quite a find!

EYE 50w Daylux and screw in ballast adapter quite a find!

Click to view full size image

Very hard to find. The Daylux is what you call a "white HPS" lamp. They require special ballasts, as such lamps operate on lower voltages, higher current than standard HPS lamps.

Dude...
That is definitely rare. I've never seen, or even heard about this type of lamp before.
A video of this lamp in action would be awesome!

I've always been a fan of HPS, Metal Halides, and Mercury lamps. But I've always also been
a fan of self-ballasted screw in versions of them as well. I had no clue that a self-ballasted HPS
even existed... especially not magnetic

Wow...what a find! Looks like there's one left here on eBay.

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

If I had the money, that Ebay post would be an instant buy. But now that I know there
is such thing as a self ballasted HPS, and it's specifications, I can definitely buy one
in the near future

I know only Eye Specialux and SDX white HPS lamps.

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.

Nice lamp Dave, and quite rare too. There also was a third component that came with it: a pressed aluminum reflector with a front glass. The one I have is indeed a self-ballasted reflector white HPS lamp, and was intended to replace PAR38 incandescent lamps in commercial and retail lighting applications.

Yes, mine was actually designed to accommodate a reflector, but didn't come with one. I was impressed by the color, it could even makes blues pop out.

That is very cool! I remember the university I went to had a number of HPS screw-in adapters for their decorative incandescent outdoor lights, and a few mercury ones. I didn't know a White SON version existed.

I would assume a Philips SDW of the same wattage would also work OK on this ballast? I had noticed there is some special electronic stabilizing circuitry in the SDW magnetic ballasts.

I'm lampin...

I got a 3D printer a little while ago and just realized I could make something like this... granted it would have to be low wattage since it would be made of plastic but it would still be cool.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.
