Very nice! The HPS Powr/Bracket looks like it's a a very recent model because the NEMA tag font is not proportional to the tag size. GE has gotten really lazy with their NEMA tags within the past 3-ish years. Awesome assortment of mounting arms too!

ah so they changed the NEMA tags earlier than I thought. I didn't start seeing them until later. but the utility here buys in mass quantities so they were probably just using up old stock. BTW, the arm with the lag bolt flange welded to the "pole side" of the arm (as opposed to the others which are fitted over the front of the pipe) is a GE arm.

I wonder what your neighbors thought of someone just dumping a pile of lights on your front lawn. It was pretty nice of him to do this though. Could you take a picture of the inside of that 2015 powerbracket?

I remember seeing the GE logo on at least one arm

Lumex: Around here, no one cares! Back in my scrapping days i came home to a HUGE pile of brake rotors laying in my driveway ! i never did figure out where they came from but i ended up making a killing in scrap ! (brake drums and rotors pay good money!)

Interior pics coming up!

The 1st gen M-1000 should be easy to get back into operating condition. I was furious when I got it when I saw how the dumb ass maintenance people put a new ballast/ capacitor in it. Completely disrespected that fantastic luminaire. They are wired for 480V.

I have a nice NOS Advance quad tap H-36 ballast that will eventually find it's way in there! Most "maintenance" people have no business "fixing" old lights ,there is a strip mall nearby with 1KW Revere cobras that were re-lamped last year with all 1KW BT-37 cram lamps instead of the correct BT-56's! It seems to be common practice around here to use Cram lamps in older fixtures, Maybe it's done as a way to convince owners to "upgrade" to LED

I think that's just the result of cram lamps either being cheaper or them just not bothering to keep the full size lamps in their inventory.

You lucky bum!!! Sucks that the M1000 with the NEMA tag is damaged. I think it's from around '77 or so, got the tag yet got the older door design.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

There were a few old door style M1000s with NEMA tags at Garden City shopping center. They're long gone now.

I may try to repair the door with the NEMA and possibly use it on the newer M-1000 assuming it'll swap, I like that door better than the step door anyways. The id tag in that light is completely un readable so no idea on the actual date

Kind of interesting to see a Powr/Bracket from that recent.

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

Can you upload individual pictures of everything?

Yeah, weather is very annoying when it comes to things like this that can't get wet inside.

Right now the only things that should stay dry are the powr/brackets and the post mount ballast and they're in the garage, the arms will survive and the M-1000's both need a good bit of work each so some water will actually help clean them out !

It looks like there are ballasts just sitting inside the M1000s. Did you take those out at least?

The visible one has all the wires cut at the coils and the one with the lamp has a replacement 480v ballast and all the capacitors are either really crusty, damaged, or swollen. The lamp is trash also

What lamps do the ballasts run and what is the lamp in the other one?

Both ballasts are 1000w MV 480v the lamp is a 1000w MV,(no etch) the arc tube support is broken loose from the stem and is just rattling around inside the lamp. I assume it WAS a Phillips judging by the ac tube frame and internal component locations, (looks identical to the 2 Phillips 1000 watters I have)

That mercury vapor ballast for X1 does work, if you need a wiring diagram for 120V I can make one! I know one of the tabs broke off but it can be fixed. It came out of an M-1000 mercury vapor X1 from Detroit & was very loud.

Ok. I’ll have to get it out of my storage unit. It was a perfectly good 120/240 X1 mercury ballast. There is a slight chance I’ll be coming across some more X1 mercury M-1000s. Some are busted up from being in ghetto areas & shot out. So I might be able to get more parts to you. If you look at 1011 Post St. in Toledo, Ohio on google street view you can see the luminaire day burning.
