Electripak High Power Sodium Compact Security Light

Electripak High Power Sodium Compact Security Light

Click to view full size image

Compact security light sold by Electripak in the late-80s and early-90s. This one is high pressure sodium, but they were sold as mercury vapor as well, though I don't remember if they were 100 or 175 watt. The ballast is quite large and uses AE's 3-lead open board ignitor. The Electripak proprietary photocell is visible on the arm in the back. The supplied lamp is a Philips Ceramalux from October 1991.

They sold 175 watt mercury vapor ones with medium base sockets back in the mid to late 90's.

Interesting... I came across a replacement lamp that would fit one of those style once. I also opened it up and saw that the ballast from my Lo-Volt fixture is the exact same size/shape as the one in this, and thus can be swapped. I wonder if they sold these as Lo-Volt as well, or this is just the same ballast used in HPS versions of the Lo-Volt fixture.

LOL, I remember the "High Power Sodium" designation. These were the "CSL" or compact security light. I almost bought one. Indeed, the MV version originally used the 125w Philips Lo-Volt lamp. These may have been the last "residential" yard lights you could get with relatively good-quality components (ballast, lamp, PC & refractor). The later versions of these started to really cheap out. Also, you can use a standard 10" yard light refractor on it in case the original gets damaged.

I'm lampin...

Thanks form109 Residential HID fixtures are kinda my niche.

Thanks for the additional info. I remember seeing these on the shelves before, but don't remember much about them. I was 12 when this fixture was made.

It does appear to be quite well made. I still often see AE/Electripak fixtures that have been in use for 20+ years and still going strong, some with their original Philips BT-28 lamps in them.

The optical assembly is similar to that of a standard yard light, but it's screwed into the aluminum housing instead of the ballast/socket crossbar.

I did always kinda shake my head whenever I saw "High Power Sodium" on the boxes.
