This is the internal of the Siteco lantern smashed by a tree.
It has a timed tridonic ignitor and a VS PU 120k power control to switch between the two tabs of the tridonic ballast (70-50W) for power reduction.

No I haven't. I have already some tridonic gears and I dont need this one. If you are interessed I can give you the exact coordinate of the place (it is at Biogno, near breganzona).

Oh, that would be great

Maybe you meant Bigogno, as Biogno is near Ponte Tresa?

I hope the lantern's remains are still in place.

Biogno it's also a hamlet of Breganzona. The lantern is located here. I hope too that the lantern is still here.

@Mima:
Did you take the lantern/ballast?

On Friday I'm passed by car and the lantern was still here.

@Kappa7: Yes, I picked it up today, in fact I'm back home right now. Fortunately it was still in place

I kept the whole gear and cabling, the lamp holder, all the mounting adaptors and some screws (that may be useful when building a mine custom lantern), the bowl and the inner reflector. I discarded the plastic frame and the outer reflector, which are broken.

And, last but not least, when going to the scrapyard to discard the lantern's unusable parts I found these 2 lamps, so today was a big score day

A big thank to you it's mandatory

Please
I'm happy that the lantern was still in place and that you have saved it.
Nice also the Osram lamps from the scrapyard! By the way in which scrapyard are you gone?

At the Ecocentro Comunale of Grancia, just at the side of the AIL Pian Scairolo's electrical substation. Coordinates for Google Maps are 45.980441,8.92722

@Kappa: You're welcome

The gear works, I tested it right now and it's all fine
I also repaired the ignitor which lost the top fixing screw. I reglued it in place.

By the way in the lantern and around it I found no lamp nor any remains of it (pieces of smashed glass, etc). It's because the lamp was still intact and you saved it?

No, the lamp was already missing when I've found the lantern. Maybe it has been saved by another lamp collector
Nice to know that the ballast work.
