Found this at Restore hiding behind some undercabinet lights. Can't believe I found this. Unfortunately, the lamp it was supposed to include is missing.

How much was it?

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

What does this thing have for a ballast? Being a Lithonia residential fixture I wouldn't get my hopes up but maybe you got lucky and it has a "real" ballast in it. I love the frosted glass. Very nice feature for a flood light, since HID floods are very glary with clear lamps.

Well, it's got a Caster photocell and a label-less ballast, so probably not too good. Also, the package arrived today. I'll get pictures of the stuff up soon.

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

These contain all Caster brand components, lamp, photocell, and ballast. I think the lampholder is the only exception. The ballast's sticker is on one of the shorter sides out of view, not on top. But there really inst much info on it anyway, just a crude circuit diagram and the lamp type, as well as the Caster name. If the ballast has yellow tape over the coils, then you got one from the last few years these were in production, and unfortunately that ballast is notorious for not running lamps to spec, either underdriving or overdriving considerably. If you have a kill-a-watt meter, check the wattage when the lamp is fully warmed up, the result may surprise you. Now, ive never actually seen or heard of these Caster ballasts failing or burning up like the cheap Cooper Lighting equivalents, which I guess is a good thing, but they clearly have poor quality control, mfg tolerances, they can cause noticeable lamp flicker, and they have a terribly low power factor

Yep, the ballast has yellow taped windings. I'll check it with a wattmeter once I can get one (my library loans them out for free) and if it ends up not driving the lamp well, I'll replace it with something like a 70w metal halide ballast. What's the proper operating wattage (with ballast) for a 100w mercury vapor?

125w should be about right for lamp and ballast iirc. Especially a smaller hx type
