Sylvania B2229's light the way!

Sylvania B2229's light the way!

Hey everyone I'm back! These 400HPS Sylvania B2229 lanterns may be on outreach arms, but wow what a tall pole, and the four of the six that do work at night do an outstanding job of lighting up this large roundabout on the Motorway at the entrance to Caloundra, on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. One of the failed lanterns isn't very hard to pick, and if you can see that then the one next door to it on the right has failed too, although it chose to be subtle about its failure. I reported these two to the power crews and they have since been repaired, with new lamps installed. It's rather rare to find B2229's in aeroscreen guise.

Here and here are some photos of my own Sylvania B2229. The B2229 in my collection is a 90watt SOX version with a bowl lense. This particular B2229 is the model before the ones pictured here with the service door being located at the bottom of the lantern as opposed to these that have their service door on top of the lantern as a 'clip/screw top' piece of plastic.

Wow James

Much cheaper option than the usual Z3430's. Probably do a good job but not meant to be up that high so I imagine that's why there's so many. Al will know for sure.

Yeah I don't know why these were installed instead of the Z3430 (which does cost more). The Z3430 is designed to provide a circular light distribution, ideal for roundabouts. Whereas the B2229/Roadsters give a sideways/batwing type distribution more suited for roads.

Traffic signals & street lighting engineer. Please bring SOX/LPS back Downunder!!
