Click to view full size image

This and about 2-3 dozen of it's friends are installed on Stringtown RD ,east of I-71 in Grove City. I don't know what brand of lamps are used in these but they SUCK ! On any given day probably 1/3 to 1/2 of them are either dim & green or just plain DEAD. New lamps usually are dim and green within 6 months or LESS ! Just plain AWFUL !!!

Probably bad caps.

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

That's why probe start metal halide really sucks for street lighting. They go dim really fast and don't last very long running horizontally.

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

Yeah, even quartz PSMH isn't that much better IMO. Too CMH never really took off for streetlighting, especially the medium and high wattage ones.

Horizontally run MH lamps just SUCK in general ! The building I work in has 400w probe start MH wall packs on it .(serviced by a lighting contractor NOT our moron maintenance dept!) the contractor uses Philips lamps and just like these cobras , they're nice and bright at first but dim extremely quickly !

Cool fixture! I like how it's FCO, bronze and MH, it's like HID cobra getting as fancy and techy as you can get. Too bad the lamps don't last. It would be much better as CMH.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Never seen a black M-400! All of the ones near me are either gray or brown, and the older ones are silver. I’ve only seen them in HPS and MV, never MH. This would look great with a 3000K CMH lamp!

I like all kinds of lighting and electrical, especially HIDs and street lights!

Westinghouse Lifeguard will always be my favorite lamp
Gotta love vintage HIDs!

Wow, usually bronze is what I see. I'm guessing they aren't very old from the glossy appearance?

Wow. One town about an hour from me has these in black, 400W HPS though.

Believe it or not , these are roughly 10 yrs old ! I'm thinking these were painted by someone other than GE before installation as the paint has lasted WAY longer than anything GE has ever done !
