55 Watt vs 90 watt

55 Watt vs 90 watt

Click to view full size image

I pulled one of the short ones that turned out to be a 90 watter into the house a while ago so I could admire it. The second and third ones I looked at at random was also 90 watts. While out doing other things on the deck I noticed some of them looked different through the lens. turns out I do have some 55 watters; I had assumed they'd be shorter but that's not the case.

I don't think I have any 35 watters, but the only difference from the 55 would probably be the lamp support moved down to the next set of bosses that's empty in the 55 version and one half of the capacity support in the 90 watt version. The socket is only listed for 55, but the ballast is the typical 35 / 55 Advance, so you could run a 35 in it just by moving the lamp support.

The lampholder should be the same for any wattage, they are here, anyway. The one I have for my 135W is exactly the same as the one for the 18W, they're used for anything up to about 200W incandescent lamps as well.

Interested to see that all the BC holders for SOX lamps over your side of the water seem to be black, ours are all white. What are they made of..? Ours are ceramic/porcelain, yours seem to be different.

It'll be all right in the end, and if it isn't all right, it isn't the end :love:

I have a white ceramic/porcelain one made by Leviton. I purchased it to make my SOX-E18 display.

The lampholders are thermoset plastic. Since we never used hot incandescent lamps with bayonet sockets here it was OK to use cheaper construction for the sockets for the SOX lamps we imported from Europe.

It's possible that these sockets are made in the U.S.A. by Kulka . I have a pair of them which look identical to yours minus the AEL label .
If you have a chance , remove a socket and look at the underside. The Kulka name should be there .

Cool scores!
Just the way the camera angle is, that 90w looks like its slightly too long to fit a cover on the fixture

Its All For The Christmas Lights...

Ah, that explains it, thanks. I thought they were plastic, but wasn't sure. We use those ceramic lampholders in a lot of fittings, such as bulkheads and wallpacks for small incandescent lamps, also the three pin version for the 80W & 125W mercury lamps and other specialist types. Those fell out of favour though, and were mostly replaced by E27 holders. I quite liked them actually, as they prevented people from putting MB lamps straight across the mains, which would not have done them any good
