3 is an American Electric/ITT 327.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

4 is actually an AEL 325 full cut-off. The rest of the models are correct.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

Something I noticed is that AEL PSMH tags are red on top and white on the bottom but GE tags are the opposite.

Yeah I've noticed that too. I forget how coopers are though. I think red on the bottom looks better. Red on top looks like the red is "floating" to me lol.

I saw a picture of a black PSMH OVX on GOL and I think it was the same as GE tags except it said "PSMH" in the corner.
Speaking of Cooper stuff it sounds like I wasn't going to be able to get that 115 so I'm going to be trying to get a 100w metal halide RMA instead. Apparently you just can't order or get price quotes for roadway lights if you aren't part of a company. If I get one it's going to be with a NEMA tag so it will be interesting to see what they use for low wattage PSMH tags.

Cooper does what AEL does for low watt PSMH tags. Solid red. Pretty sure they just say MH too. Saw some 70w PSMH OVHs in southern NH a few years ago.

I used to see these now known Crimefighter street light fixtures dotted in Chicago area.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

#4 is interesting. The AEL 325 310w PSMH. I have never seen a cobrahead with that type of lamp and socket before.

It's a Philips electronic ballast thing. I was really confused when I saw them first too.

Ah so that means this fixture was ordered with an electronic ballast?

It's another special Chicago thing. The lamps are all proprietary.
