Metal halide high bay

Not sure who makes these... these metal halide high bays are in the bus sheds at work, where all the buses are parked for the night. I suppose that there is a chance of diesel soot landing on the fixtures making them dirty from all the buses. The bus mechanic shed also has the same fittings.

The lamps are presumably Iwasaki.

I see they're wired up like I would do it : socket and plug. Makes swapping easier for maintenance, etc.

Yep! Relatively common here in Australia. These are controlled by a switch near the door, the switch actuates a contactor to turn on all the lights in the bus sheds. I believe the lights are evenly distributed across three phases as well.

In Canada, it is not unheard of, but not super-common either. They are nice lights, however.

We still have stocks of HID lamps at the bus depot, the external areas were once lit by SOX but unfortunately they were removed a few years ago since SOX lamps are so expensive. At least the replacement is HPS.

Yes while I don't like SOX removal, HPS, or MH replacments on magnetic gear are way better than LED

Oh yes, the HPS will last a while yet as we have a cupboard which has HPS, MH and MV lamps as well as ballasts at the bus depot for replacements. I'm sure a lot of it is Iwasaki, GE and Philips stuff. Long live HID.
