An elliptical 150W HPS lamp, cycling with an unknown brand of low frequency pulses ignitor

An elliptical 150W HPS lamp, cycling with an unknown brand of low frequency pulses ignitor

The ignitor provides one flash per secs, and this lamp have a hard restriking, often leading to long flashing, as well as temporary extinguishing after a hot restrike.
I'm guessing that based on the pulse rate, the ignitor is probably of Steinitz.

Seen this ignition before. I would think it's a semi-parallel ignitor. Two brands come to mind Philips and Thorn.

I've informed that the rate of pulses of low frequency pulses semi-parallel ignitors, isn't a good indicator to detect the ignitor brand. In the past, Eltam offered their ES-50 semi-parallel ignitors with various pulses rates. Initially semi=parallel ignitors with the pulse rate on this video, was most common. Today it is most common a pulse rate of 4-5/sec.
I know that Thorn had a low frequency pulses semi-parallel ignitor, but Philips don't. Philips Sn57 and Sn58 semi-parallel ignitors, are all 50hz ignitors.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.
