Phillips 35w HPS with LOTS-O-HOURS !

Click to view full size image

THIS, is the 35w HPS I asked about awhile back in a post titled "50,000 hr HPS?" the etch is almost completely gone
This lamp ran dusk to dawn for well over 17 years, the original fixture, a Regent model W-35-H/PC has a mfg date of 10/18/2000
I know for a fact that this is the original lamp to that fixture,I personally transferred THIS lamp to the replacement fixture, a 35w HPS RAB Area Light JR I replaced this on 11/29/18 because I saw it cycle once and changed it due to its age.

December 1996, Bath, NY. The '90s Philips HPS lamps were some of the best HPS lamps from that time, the first being GE.

Power provider: Southern California Edison (SCE)

-Date decoder of some US lamps 1960-present.
-Switch and receptacle collector.

What kind of fixture was it in?

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

I believe it when you say it ran that long. I recently removed a a few Phillips 150W HPS parking lot bulbs that were still going after 19 years of dawn to dusk. They were still working, however- a few years ago there was a few that took out the ballasts when they tried to go EoL. Everything Phillips made back around 2000 was pretty dang good. Sometimes too good. Meaning the bulbs wouldn't burn out properly, causing over taxing of ballasts which would take out the ballasts. Phillips Alto U bend T8 tubes were very notorious for going mercury starved instead of going EoL like they should have.

The more you hate the LED movement, the stronger it becomes.

I did receive comments on my original post about this lamp possibly trying to kill the ballast at EOL. So the first time I saw it cycle, it got retired !
