Very nice lamp! Clear BT MVs just look so cool.

Fortunately I could get two of them they are quite rare here in Brazil once LED lamps are now used for external lighting.

Clear mercury vapor lamps have always been pretty rare here in Rhode Island. Seems they were common in other parts of the USA but around here virtually all mercury vapor lamps (except for some privately owned) were some sort of phosphor-coated lamp, be it /W, /C, or /DX. Nowadays they're virtually extinct except for maybe a Chinese clear lamp in someone's yardblaster but those are rubbish.

Caltrans actually relamped a group of 12 underpass lights with clear MVs three years ago! Three are dead, but the other nine still work and are not dimmed out!

Wow very unusual to hear about! RIDOT hasn't had any MVs in the system since the early 1990s and recently replaced almost all their HPS with LEDs. Their underpass lighting is still HPS (and runs 24/7 as opposed to dusk to dawn like they used to; the underpass lights were on the same group photocell as the regular freeway lights but the LEDs have their own nodes now, so the group photocells have all been bypassed. Apparently they didn't consider the underpass lighting when they came up with this plan).

Some of the HPS cobraheads remain too, but I know of only a couple full installs of HPS and only a couple loose missouts as well.

They relamped a 400w MV M400A2 near me recently with a new /DX lamp. Next to it is an ITT model 25 in 250w HPS that's been dead for years. They fixed both of them at the same time. I have been told that these lights are city property and not owned by Xcel and so they should be safe from replacement, at least for a while.

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

@Mike: Most underpass, streetlights, and even sign lights on Caltrans' system are group switched by a single photocell in a service pedestal. Some have two. Older setups typically have the photocell on the pole cap and some breakers halfway the pole.

It's odd that they group relamped this set with MVs, even though they stopped relamping the MVs by the '90s and the HPS ones around 2016 that light the freeways.

By the way, Caltrans still does relamp MVs! (sign lights) Last week, they put a fresh lamp in one.

@Lumex: At one point Caltrans, TRYED to retroffit the Mercury Vapor underpass lights to HPS, but retrofitted half of them, HPS and left half of them alone! The HPS's were at the merges/exits and the Mercs were on the freeway. That meant one side (the middle) was lit with clear Mercury, and the other side (merges/exits) was lit with HPS!


Also Caltrans used (and still uses) coated MVs in sign lights and they used CLEAR mercurys in the street and underpass lights! I also noticed the install NEW Mercury Vapor sign lights a couple of weeks ago!!! (They've been there for months, but now, they install LED sign lights. Not suprisingly 6 are dead. )

Yep...vintage US (or Canadian) made BT HID lamps are irresistible!

They were very common here in the greater Seattle area up until the '82/'83 time frame when virtually everything was changed out to HPS.

Just picked up five more of these. Can't resist the BT lamps no matter there size.
