Soviet made 500 watt train headlight lamp

Soviet made 500 watt train headlight lamp

These lamps are special. They were made for train headlights. They are small, but extremely, ridiculously bright. I once turned it on and got a green blind spot in my visions for straight hour!!!! Not even kidding you guys. I have 7 more of these, all NOS. They are 220 volt 500 watt. These lamps also need a fan to cool them, when they are in use, because if don't, they will literally get too hot and the glass ruptures from the pressurized hot gasses in there.

I know right

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

This lamp not for train. ))
Her mark PZh220-500. These lamps are for a floodlight for photo and movie shooting. They have a short life.
There are also some other lamps of different power with a screw base and swivel.
For example

Also, about the train headlight. It was something that my grandpa told me.

In the Soviet years, it often happened when, due to a temporary shortage in devices, lamps could be used that did not correspond to what was necessary.
For the transport, either swiveling lamps or lamps with notches on the thread of the base were used. This was done so that the lamp would not get out due to vibration.
I can assume that this lamp was used in a separate searchlight of the train. For example, such a spotlight often stood at the top. But surely they could not be used in the main headlights of the train.

220V is a unusual voltage for headlight lamp, in most cases Soviet trains had 50V, 75V or 110V installation.
