Danny : Assume 125w arc + 150w linear halogen running at 125w, looks reasonable to me....

Ash: In halogen ballasted MV lamps, the filament lays in its own atmosphere of high pressure argon/nithrogen + bromine, so the outerbulb can be filled with low pressure nithrogen for improved arc-tube efficiency.
Also, the atmosphere where the filament located, is suitable for its overdrivin conditions during run-up, so its life should less affected by lamp run-ups.

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 (

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.
