I want to get one of the AEL 115 from eBay, probably the FCO version since that's what Duke uses here. But they're too big for right now, since I live with my parents.

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

Hopefully you will get one soon. I see where they are down to 72.00 each for a FG.

What's that red sticker on the 115? Don't think I've ever seen that before on a cobrahead.

It could be one of those UL stickers? I think the silver AEL lights in Boston have those red stickers.

Hmm I think you might be right. Wish silver was a listed option for cobraheads. The Boston 115s looked really good in silver.

It is and the ballast compartment has a cardboard like gray "snap in" cover that protrudes under the reflector edge all the way back to the slip fitter end of the luminaire. I covers the electrical components in the fixture head.

Ah yep, one of the major UL requirements. Theres a few I think. I believe glass refractors are another, at least that's what the GE spec sheets always said.

Yeah the silver AEL cobraheads used in Boston Massachusetts have those cardboard covers over the electrical gear. I have one of the silver painted AEL 125's that even has the property of City Of Boston sticker inside the fixture.

I believe the cover over the ballast tag is also a CSA requirement too. Most of the cobraheads since the 90s here have a similar cover. Interesting the UL tags are red, I thought at first that was an asset tag like what you normally see on company owned computers.

We have a lot of silver AEL 115s and 125s in Toronto. They're actually bare fixtures instead of silver painted fixtures though.

I have bought or aquired 16 cobras in the last year or so. Some were never opened and they did not have the cover over the ballast compartment. They were either Cooper or GE. I think it might be a regional or utility spec requirement.

@ Steve: almost none should have that paper over the gear as it's only for when the fixture bears a UL listing. 99.9% of them out there are not UL listed so they dont need the paper. The Cooper OVWs that some members here had got off Ebay are UL listed I think.

It also has the fully enclosed plug in ignitor in it as well.

Meant that it seemed to have been a CSA requirement since the 90s. Hence most of the newer lights here have that cover. I have one light were the cover was cut away by the lineman though.

My OVF has the cover too but I'll have to check if it's CSA or UL listed.
