European 700W MV lamps, are low voltage lamps. American 700W MV lamps, are high voltage lamps.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
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.

The European 700W MV lamp ratings are 145V and 5,4A, at least on Philips.

Yes, that is definitely a late production Shaw lamp...it has the tell-tale conform-lock base and the bulb matches the mold shape of the MBF/U "Truelite" 700 exactly.

In about 1978 Shaw changed from heat-cured cemented bases to this conform-lock type.

The lamp on the left looks like a G.E. Ravenna to me....the slightly blunter crown and what looks to be an unplated triangular thread E39 base as well as the acute angle bend in the arc frame wire are all giveaways.

E40 caps have a round thread profile whilst E39 have the triangular profile.

Any chance Shaun, you can turn the left land lamp around and lay the thread profile of its base into the thread profile of the H700? If they both have triangular profile threads that "mesh" when laid side by side then this is definitely a North American market model...however if it has the round profile of an E40 base that won't mesh with the E39 base on the left, then it really is just a re-badged MBF/U.

Pity we can't see the arc tube...to see if a longer, thinner version has been used for American Leak-Transformer gear. I do have a few MBF/U 700's and HPL-N 700's but they are not accessible at present.

Here, 700w mercury lamps are run in series with a single choke of about 60mH off 240v, 50Hz and they develop an arc drop of about 115v at about 6.5A.

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

Thanks for the I.D. on the Kolorlux !The lamp on the left is actually a Phillips 400w /DX (the etch is barely visible) The threads on the 700 are MUCH deeper than the American lamps I have.

And BTW , Shaun is who I got this from

That 700W eurolamp had been running on a 250W HPS ballast since it was installed in the 90s. It was somewhat dim & green last time I saw it running.

It’s the OV-50 on the left in that photo.
