Philips CDM-i 25W/830 European Integrated Ballast MH lamp

Click to view full size image

What you are seeing here is a rare in Europe peculiarity of a MH with an integrated electronic ballast enabling the direct use on 220V-240V line voltage. This is a PAR38 reflector lamp with a 40° beam angle (there are also variants with a 25° and 10° angle). Inside this lamp there is CDM-Tm 20W/830 burner with reflector and power wires permanently attached to the base. Installed electronic ballast is rated for 220V-240V and 50Hz/60Hz. Startup is nice and smooth. It doesn't provide hot restrike, lamp must cool down before it will strike again.

cool! I always wanted one of these but they were prohibitively expensive and now with LED no longer available. I though these were exclusive to the US market I guess I was wrong
Anyway cool find

There must have been separate production for US and EU, different voltage and legal reasons, on the box of my lamp there is a text saying "Not for sale in the US". As far as I know in the US there are integrated ballast MHs from many brands and such idea got more traction there. In Europe I don't recognise any other case than this series from Philips, good that at least there was anything like that at all.

The only two makers for the US market (Of Self ballasted Metal Halide) I aware of are Sylvania and Philips there may be more I am not aware of though

GE also makes Self Ballasted Metal Halides as well, (23w) but not sure if it involves the US market.

I've got the 120v 60hz Philips 25w Par38... https://www.lighting-gallery.net/gallery/displayimage.php?album=search&cat=0&pos=35&pid=148681
Mine is also self ballasted.
Start up with mine is not as smooth... with lots of orange and pink flashes during the color shifting phase.

1. Motorcycles, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weighting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Yep
Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend

So I'm not the only one with such Philips lamp. Mine also has pink flashes, just not as many and may be due to minuscule differences between different arctube production batches. Here is a video of my lamp startup:

@Trojmiejski, seems as if yours has less of a delay during start up, and yours also warms up faster than mine as well.
Yours also doesn't have that very high pitched whistle that mine seems to have, which seems to be getting worse as time
goes on, by the way. I'll make a close up/comparison video of mine starting up here soon!

Mine whistles a bit when the lamp is turned on soon after turning off and the burner is too warm for restrike.

Mine is literally exactly the same. Restrike takes about 6 minutes with mine though, I think. about 3 or 4 minutes though
with my smaller 20w track light MH lamps.
I will try to find time to make a close up video and I'll post a link to that video here!
