McCann Lighting AL250 Area Luminaire

McCann Lighting AL250 Area Luminaire


It uses a 12" NEMA head bucket refractor and has a vertical lamp like a NEMA head. I saw a pic of a shoebox like this and pretty much just copied the idea. It's like a shoebox crimefighter

It's not a real light fixture. It's my design. See here for more info. BTW, i replaced the screen shot with a PDF version that Joe created for me. thanks Joe!

How long have you been making these?

That's actually the exact picture I saw that sparked the idea for such a fixture. I had made catalogs for shoeboxes with cobraheads refractors too, like what's used in Ontario.

@streetlight98, is probe start metal halide getting banned too or is "only available outside the US" only for mercury vapor?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

It's not legal for it to be sold in new fixtures (aquarium and grow light companies bypass this though, they still make probe start metal halide fixtures) in the US. Replacement ballasts are still legal, however.

Nice that we don't have to resort to pulse start that can't run mercury vapor.

Pulse start can usually run mercury vapour, you just disable the ignitor. For instance I have a 39w MH pulse ballast installed in a wall pack to run 40/50w MV , the ignitor is removed and leads capped. You do however have to make sure to find the right pulse MH ballast to match with a MV as you cannot go by wattage ratings. Example. I use a 39w MH ballast for 50w MV lamps because a 50w MH ballast would be way to much. a 50w MH ballast would be better paired with a 75w MV lamp and a 70w MH ballast works with 100w MV lamps.


To my knowledge here in Canada, its pretty much the same. No probe fixtures are sold however probe ballasts are still sold. Mercury vapour and probe MH lamps are still sold here too however it is becoming harder to find them in stores, so online places are best.

@Lightingguy1994, can 175 watt and higher pulse start ballasts run probe start metal halide and mercury vapor?

I'm not familiar with the higher wattage ones, you'll have to hope another member can fill us in as I would be curious too. 175w Pulse ballasts are pretty uncommon also.

Yep, as long as the ignitor is disconnected.

Canada still allows mercury vapour fixtures to be sold. Some hardware stores still stock 175w mercury yardlights (not HD or Lowe's though) but I haven't seen fixtures in any other wattage or replacement ballasts. Yeah stores in Canada have stopped stocking most HID wattages so I have to order online, score them at Restore, or from a distributor for HID lamps.

I've set up one of my cobraheads with a 70w PSMH ballast with a internal switch wired to disable the ignitor. With that mod I can run 100w MV, 70w PSMH/CMH, and 70w SON (European HPS) lamps in the same fixture without changing the ballast. I've never actually tried running a 175w or higher lamp on the equivalent PSMH ballast. I am however fortunate enough to have a set of 175-1000w probe start ballasts so I just use those instead.

Yep probe mh fixtures are illegal in the US but replacement ballasts are allowed, which I dont understand but hey, at least they're still made...
