Osram HQI 250w

Osram HQI 250w

The local Ax-man surplus store has had this lamp for as long as I can remember, but I didnt get it until today when I found out that they are normally very expensive. It was just $4.95. Does this need to be in a glass enclosure to run since it is made of quartz? The color is listed as /NDX (neutral deluxe white). What does that mean?

I think that:
Neutral = 4100K
"Deluxe" = High CRI

"NDX" means "Neutral Deluxe" (4000K or thereabouts), a suffix of just "D" means Daylight (5500K)

This lamp have 4200K and Ra8=88, accroding to Osram specs . The "deluxe" is to distinguish it from the regular /N which uses either the regular Na-Sc or the tri-salt, which acheives Ra8=65. This one have the same halides as my Osram HQI-TS 70W/WDL Excellence (Na-Tl-Rare earths), to produces the high CRI.

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.

Is this the German made one?, it looks it from the discharge tube, these were proper quality lamps, I have the HQI-T D version, with an E40 cap.
The caps on this one are Fc2, these were used for high brightness display lighting, and for compact floods.

Current: UK 230V, 50Hz

I tried running this on a 250w PSMH ballast but it started flickering madly after a few minutes. Is this normal?

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

Maybe it's getting "seasoned".
I could run this somehow with my Lumatek ballast, but then you need adapters to convert the connector into wires.

@Zarlog: Try to run it on S50 ballast or M80 ballast. I think that the Osram HQI-TS 250W/NDL, like the HQI-TS 250W/D are designed to be operated here on HPS ballasts.
