Gear inside 50 watt HPS wallpack

Gear inside 50 watt HPS wallpack

Click to view full size image

Gear inside 50 watt HPS wallpack. I got this NOS Advance ballast and NOS Philips OEM diffused lamp for this cheapo wallpack fixture I've had unused for a while. The ballast, ignitor and cap fit perfectly into this small fixture although I did have to remove the metal ballast cover to make it all fit. I used the mounting brackets that came with the ballast to mount everything and it turned out pretty nice.

Nice work! The advance ballast is a nice touch. Too bad they're sooo expensive to buy new. There are some Ebay deals to be had though.

Thanks Mike. If I went any higher wattage with this it all wouldn't have fit perfectly inside the fixture the way it does and didn't want to use some cheapo ballast... This ballast kit was another ebay find I like these older advance kits compared to the new ones and I only paid $30 for the lamp and ballast kit! Thought it was a score

Looks like you would be able to fit a 50w metal halide ballast in here too.

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

Maybe even a 70w MH ballast. I think they and 50w MH ballasts are around the same size. I actually have a similar wallpack but in 70w MH with a aluminum body and glass lens.

I have a RAB brand tallpack with a 70w PSMH ballast in it. Nicely built light, just havent found a use for it yet.

I'd still like to find one of those along with an Area-lite Jr.

Yeah the RAB tallpacks are nice. I hate plastic light fixtures. RAB lights are all metal with glass lenses.

That looks better with the HPS lamp. I definitely prefer metal and glass for wallpacks because plastic will eventually yellow or melt.

I like all kinds of lighting and electrical, especially HIDs and street lights!

Yeah and once the plastic yellows thats it. You'll have to find an NOS replacement cover, as often those plastic lens wallpacks are all plastic except the back plate. The top and front are part of the lens, painted to match the fixture.

That’s pretty cheap that the top of the fixture is simply a painted lens. Once the refractor yellows the light becomes pretty much useless. Glass is a much better choice for any HID fixture, IMO.

Agreed, though I don't mind plastic lenses on cobraheads, as they are interchangeable most of the time and are very easy to replace without tools.

Plastic lenses aren’t too bad for use on cobraheads. Here there are few plastic-lensed cobraheads, but mostly glass. Plastic refractors are only used on 100, 70, and 50W HPS fixtures. 150W and above is glass, and 35W HPS is pretty much non-existent.
