Homemade Mini-HighBay Fixture - Inside

Homemade Mini-HighBay Fixture - Inside

Click to view full size image

Here's the inside. right now it's wired up for incandescents with one round junction box extender. I plan to add two more boxes on top of it and will fit the fixture for 35W HPS lamps. No way is a 70W PSMH ballast going to fit and a 100W incandescent gets pretty hot so a 70W PSMH lamp would fry this thing. I don't think 35W HPS really gets that hot so it will be suitable for this. A 35W HPS choke and its igniter should fit in this once I add on the extra boxes. Right now I just taped over the socket terminals but I will find a better method for covering them later.

They make a hook eyelet that you can use for that chain coupling and secure it in that top opening, which will allow you some more space. Could you use a SBMV in it? I have some in 160 watt but I think they were also made in 70 watt.

Yeah I've seen them used on real highbays but I couldn't find them locally. I guess I could order one online... I have a large A-shaped Westinghouse 160W SBMV but it's too big and way too hot. I though about 100W medium base MV but then i'd have to remote ballast it. I have six glass Holophane high bays that I have the big hooks but they're in there permanently. They screwed them in and then inserted some sort of pin to keep them from being unscrewed.

I have seen them for the 1/2" EMT openings like your water tight box has. They tread right in and have a provision for hooking a chain or hook. I think I have some vintage fluorescent fixtures with them too. Those use a nut on the back side instead of direct threading.
