Click to view full size image

Here you see a New Old Stock Thorn 1500 watt MBIL Linear Metal Halide Lamp as used for Large Area and Sports Stadium Floodlighting, Technically this Lamp is a Bare Quartz Arc Tube which uses a Enclosed Floodlight Fixture to filter out the Harmful UV Radiation.

As you can see this lamp is sealed within a Plastic Covering and has Protective Foil around the Lamp which eliminated Finger Marks and dirt to contaminate the lamp before Installing, when installed the electrician will fist remove the lamp from the plastic Cover then fit it in the floodlight, then the Foil is removed by pulling on the strings before the light is closed and used.

nope it requires a ANSI M133 (Pulse Start) Ballast & Ignitor of used in the USA, I actually have the UK Thorn G53308 Ballast and suitable PARMAR PT150K455 Ignitor for this Lamp, but I am unable to light it as it uses a 380/415 volt 3 Phase Supply.
