Helvar NK 70 LUP

Helvar NK 70 LUP

Small but very heavy ballast for 70W HPS and MH lamps. Considering that this has had a long life in a flood light fixture that looked like it had went to hell and back this ballast looks pristine, it looks brand new.

The plastic on the push fit terminals on these Helvar ballasts are usually baked by the heat from the lamp until it beecomes hard and brittle making many of these ballasts useless after a certain age. This one however looks great, still fully usable.

Push fit terminal connectors.

This seems made in day 22 of 2002 or 2012.
Seems, that older ones have white terminal cover, when later ones have this light brown/ green. I don't know, when it changed.

Old Helvar logo - This must be in 2002. This was most likely translucent white when new
