A few OV20s, some of them not working, on the driveway of Sacre-Coeur Hospital, North end of Montreal. Ballast is probably in the base of the post.

Even the LAX airport in Low Angeles, California has them still in use. They use them as portable lights.

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

Yep, And here is You’re opportunity to talk to someone in charge about saving them for a You if they are on there list to have them replaced in the future,

Opportunity is knocking! I would not wait,

LED could be that hospital’s future mindset ,

Good Luck 👍🍀

Typically these are 400w mv and in a few cases 250w. I suppose with a remote ballast, you could use whatever wattage you wanted though. Awesome to see them still in use!

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

Actually I'm not sure of the watts at all. Very dimmed however. Just about 2-3 Lux on the road.
