Lampways 250w clear IR lamp - Japanese made

Lampways 250w clear IR lamp - Japanese made

I wonder who made this, Lampways was the sort of company that brands lamps but buys them from other large manufacturers. Perhaps the font might give it away? The lamp still works, I found it (in a very dusty state!) this morning for 50p at the local Car Boot sale.

Wow, that's a bargain..! Made in Japan, well that will narrow it down a bit, but I'm not sure, incandescent lamps aren't my speciality.

Nice lamp and deal you got, and like sox35, incandescents are not my specialty.

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

I've guessing more like your interest. Incandescent lamps are the most simple technology in the electric lighting, so it isn't interests me. I mostly interested in HID lamps, mainly HPS and MH.

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.

Indeed, discharge lamps are my main interest, specifically LPS. But I do have a large collection of incandescent lamps and I do take an interest. But the details are not foremost in my memory.

This might be from "Rays Of the Rising Sun Electric Co. Ltd." they made Kyokko and Ashai branded lamps to name a few. They also did the "Silva Kay" lamp. They are in Shinagawa, a suburb of Tokyo at 35.613987, 139.739852 . They are a notoriously difficult plant to find! But I am fairly sure there is about a 50% chance they made this as much of their output was 3rd party branded. I would need to see the base profile in detail to be really sure.

Very odd to see a heat lamp with a B22 base although they "are a thing" in New Zealand. When I was staying in New Zealand in 2007 I had a similar 275w heat lamp "pop out" of a standard plastic B22 Battern holder while I was using it in the bathroom of a rented house in Taupo...Luckily I caught it in my towel when it fell.

We were to leave that house the following day and I could not leave the buggered batten holder there..so I went and bought a replacement...could not do a heatproof ceramic one because the switchboard was locked and I had to change the socket live..had to take it off REALLY CAREFULLY..as there was an unswitched active/phase terminated there...I carefully put a new socket/battern holder of exactly the same type back over the wires without moving them...it was nerve wracking.

Left a note for the landlord to get a proper ceramic socket and mount it on a piece of cement sheet because I had the feeling he would not be "ready with the towel" like I was.

Oh, I think this may be made by EYE. I have some EYE weatherproof incandescent flood bulbs that shares similar design features such as the glass molding above the base. I need to post a pic.

Davem the "other 50%" that is not "Rays of the Rising Sun"....like you, I would say Iwasaki Electric...the etch is very Iwasaki, but the base profile of that B22 cap is important as "Rays Of the Rising Sun" sourced their bases from a very unique and distinctive base manufacturer.

Sometines you just have to "stand back" and look past the branding and see the real manufacturer underneath, particularly with these heat lamps.

We have loads of brands (of heat lamps) here in Australia, IXL, Nelson, Crompton... but in the end most are either Jae-Keyong from Korea, Iwasaki or Rising Sun from Japan or a yet-to-be-determined plant in China.

All the Philips and GEC heat lamps are long gone and forgotten!
