OVZ 150w HPS Disabled Ignitor

OVZ 150w HPS Disabled Ignitor

Using a white marker, an X marks that the ignitor has been disabled. An ignitron Eye lighting lamp is installed. I took advantage of the missing refractor to see the type of lamp installed.

Why would they do this? Besides, aren't those Ignitron lamps 100v only?

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

To pre-trouble shoot and save on maintenance time. When an ignitor is kaput, you're not sure what the problem might be.

Until I procured such a head with a white X, I honestly didn't know this. The ballast is S55 and the ignitor wires were snipped. The lamp installed (inside my OVZ) reads:

EYE IGNITRON
LU150/55/I/EN
