These came with my 1976 McGraw-Edison "Nighthawk" luminaires. They both work.

I like these older FP photo controls. They were well made and last forever

Very nice!

I agree Cool White! Fisher Pierce photocells were built to last and last! All the way up to the Sun-Tech takeover in 2003. Since 2003 their photocells have been mediocre at best. Despite there being "Sun-Tech" ordering numbers and "fisher pierce" ordering numbers, all their photocells have Sun-Tech designed guts in them, which don't last nearly as long. I swear Sun-Tech designs them to fail, since almost every failed electronic Sun-Tech/FPolc photocell I've looked at made since the mid-2000s has failed the same way: a large resister overheats and chars the circuit board, often the solder joints come undone. You'd think they'd fix the issue but they probably rarely get defective returns.

They had a huge issue with dayburners right out of the box a few years ago and my local utility company had dayburners everywhere. Seems to be fine now, unless they just make sure to glove test them now lol. They do most street light repairs at night here. Anyway, it was so bad with the defective photocells that for awhile my local utility was keeping the existing photocell in place on the light when relamping if it still worked lol. It's normally their policy to replace the PC when they replace a lamp, though when they fix a dayburner for some reason they only replace the PC. I find that kind of dumb since you'd think a dayburning lamp would likely be close to EOL with twice as many hours per day on it.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

I like old P/C's too. I've got a few of them, but I've never posted pictures.

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.
