Half a kilowatt of FL

These lamp banks were at some point not too uncommon in East Germany. Their use included industrial lighting but also TV studios in the B&W days. They were also installed at the Berlin Friedrichstraļæ½e railway station, as quite a lot of pictures show.

Two such banks illuminate a station hall here, and the light is very pleasant, bright but soft, with the good colour rendering of current lamps. And later in the evening, when it is quiet, they hum away in a reassuring manner...

[Update: Gone now, see comments.]

They have these in some retail stores, but i think they have 6 T8 lamps.

Update: This one and its companion are gone, replaced by some MH downlights that have been put on the old grid mounts. I'm not really eager to know how the hall looks at night now

Imagine this with t10 NOS powetwists or NOS Tunsgram T12s šŸ¤¤šŸ¤¤šŸ¤¤

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

I didn't expected to see such a thing outside North America.

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.

These luminaires were not too rare in applications like industrial facilities. If you want to see more of them: Just search for pre-renovation pictures of the famous FriedrichstraƟe railway station in Berlin.
