Our Swiss manufacturer did make the ā€œSā€ ( for streetlights) lamps with 750W rating.

They might be very hard to find! I think the last batch of these went to the city of Bern around 2000 and they (with my help) replaced the last streetlight in 2002/03 to CDM-T 150W. Sadly all of the remaining ones in the storage have been skipped because I did not ask after them!

I have a lot of Australian ELMA Philips 750 watters here, but buried in the shipping container. The lamp depicted above was used on top of Mt. Rumney...a hill near Lanherrne Airport...to warn aircraft of the existence of the hill.

I do not know where the plant for this is, but it was probably G.E. is Missisagua, (Toronto).


Hey, Michael....hasn't Righi Licht closed already? I cannot imagine 750 watters coming from anywhere else close to you.

wow I bought a bulb in 750w. and I've seen a very old gec or so I think. I have to buy it hahaha we have all grouped some boxes on top of others. Sometimes I don't know what I have. then it was an indication or warning bulb. surely the translator does not let me express myself correctly. It has a curious construction

The translation is a "bit lumpy", but we do get the idea.....when reading translations you have to "loosen" your language rules to "see through" to the meaning beyond the words.

Some of the finer details and intentions are lost in the translation though.

I get it . The translation is inaccurate! I try my best to express myself. anyway it must be the fault of the google translator. Sometimes it does not translate correctly what English-speaking people write. Then it is a translator's fault. but well the most important is understood. But details are lost. one day the translator will improve. in the past it was worse

Just imagine you were tasked with writing a translator....you would need a perfect understanding of THREE languages..

Catalan
English
and the Computer programming script it was written in....say Python or C++

But! Most of us do not understand our own languages!!! I don't understand much about the English Language at all....supprised?

Think of the language like a washing machine or refrigerator....most of us know how to use these things BUT not how they actually work inside! So we know how to use our respective languages, but don't really understand how they work "on the inside".

I am married to a Vietnamese person, but I don't really comprehend much of her language. One time I was in Viet Nam, her 14 year old niece came to me to ask for help with her English home work....AND, .....I could barely do any of it!!!
"Show the past participle of 'go' in this sentence?" Uh!? What! At that instant I realized how little I understood "my own" language!!

In reality I understand more about how my washing machine works than the language I use everyday!

very good reflection !! Had not thought of that. We cannot know everything or do the perfect things, but we can have a slight idea of how things are. Over the years you will learn her language and she yours. Everything takes time. it's the same as looking for lamps
