This isn't a metal halide lamp, but a mercury lamp, since the heating elements in these suntanning devices, are also used as the ballasts for the lamp to simple the construction (Hence the heating elements don't works, when the lamp cooling down for hot restrike). Operating the heating elements only, is done by shorting their output, similar to a stuck starter on preheat ballasts. Since the heating elements are resistive devices, they can only operate mercury lamps, as these have an active starting probe. MH lamps can't be used in a resistive ballast, since they have no starting electrode, so the period there is no voltage is too long to sustain a discharge, and probe-start MH lamp, also can't be used with resistive ballast, is because the starting probe is shorted to the main electrode when the lamp is hot.

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.

Dor, when you make statements of such certainty..., "This isn't a metal halide lamp....." and you say it as if you are 100% certain by any shadow of doubt without first corroborating it from any other sources...(other collectors here on Lighting Gallery, or even better the spectrum of the lamp itself) all you do is damage your own credibility!

Now it seems like you like to sometimes corroborate your statements with those of James...which is a good thing on your part because James is one of the most knowledgable and experienced members we have.

So I will "go and ask James too"....middle lamp, bottom row!

But I knew it years ago, long before I knew James, when I went to Sydney in 1989 and these were all over the city in luminaires with Wood's Glass fronts....they shone on fluorescent banners and had been put up as part of Australia's bicentennial the year before, (1788-1988). A fried drove me around the city and in "The Rocks" almost under the southern end of the famous Harbor Bridge, there was one luminaire where the Wood's Glass cover had slid party off revealing the lamp underneath...needless to say I had my spectroscope and got a look at the spectrum. It contained loads of lines I had NEVER seen before in ANY lamp....so I was on to obtain one of these.

Luckily, as it was now February 1989, and the 1988 celebrations were over, they were being taken down and I found the depot where they all went to...I got about four lamps, they gave me two used and two new ones as they were never going to use them again, (I should have scored a sheet of Wood's Glass too, but I did'nt!) So I had lamps to take home, fire up and study in detail...in high resolution!

I referenced all the spectral lines against those in C.R.C. and found them to be due to Mercury, Iron and Cobalt. Later I found James' site and his discoveries agreed with mine.

Pages of CRC where spectral lines are listed...

10-16 Cobalt
10-31 Iron
10-42 Mercury

This unit contains a HARD WIRED SMALLER version of the HPA 400S......

Again! What makes you so sure that this smaller version does not have an auxillary electrode??? (Note the question marks!!)

I have "torn down" a couple of these units and drawn the circuit diagram....so I know only too well what is in one!!

Have you drawn the circuit diagram of one of these units?
