According to the label, it seems to test whether or not an MV fixture will be compatible with an MH lamp.

I thought it was an X-Ray tube "head" at first.

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

Strange device-never seen it in any of the GE catalogs.Sounds like it could be useful,though.Yes,figure it could serve as a ballast tester for Mercury and MH lamps.

OK, this is sitting in my museum trailer as well. just put it in from my van yesterday. It is a mercury ballast tester. It can test the core and coil and the capacitor. An analyzer. These are very likely to be extremely rare, and were exclusively used by members of the lighting division of GE, and were basically factory only tools. I will use it to test my merc ballasts, will give more details soon! I got the whole lot of stuff shown this past Saturday. Yea, I am pretty happy--no VERY happy! Thanks 850038! (yes, met him on person, way cool fellow!) there is a second merc ballast tester with no threads on the base as well, and it can only be in the socket 10 seconds max! Cheers all! Rick D!

Hi Rick, back in the mid 80's i ordered a bunch of sales brochures from GE, one being the "GE Ballast Compatibility List(#206-109) in it are instructions for using the "Mercury Socket Analyzer ("I-Line Checker") the instructions consist of a full page flow chart for testing single and 2-lamp 400w and 1000w mercury systems, the analyzer is listed as model MSA-3 and says it's "available through your local GE Lamp Sales Office"
