Yes it was very popular in the early to mid 80's,a local lighting store owner said he sold thousands,maybe an exaggeration.I did know of four lighting stores that sold these in the 80's.There was alot of these around,there still is now,but some people don't want to spend $50-$60 for a new lamp when it burns out and don't bother replacing it anymore.

The brighter the better.

The LPS lamps last about 16,000 hours,the replacement interval for me was an average of 4 years.

The brighter the better.

Oh. So I guess there is no benifit over the lamp type. I don't know much about lps. BTW, this is the nicest LPS fixture I've seen.

I think it is way more expensive then HPS (e.g. 55W LPS vs 70W HPS): System power consumption similar (~90W in average trough life), HPS last longer (assume correct, decently made ballast), the replacement lamp is way cheaper, give at least some color rendering...
But for someone, who need to call an electrician to replace the bulb, would be way cheapest to use the MV (100W) - all replacements might be scheduled long upfront, so reducing their cost a lot and the extra 25..30W do not cost as much as the "immediate response service", when the bulb die unexpectedly...

No more selfballasted c***

Home Hardware in Dawson Creek still has lamps for those. I don't remember how much they cost though. I thought about buying one but I already have several 35w lamps for my LPS NEMA.

That's cool some of the Home Hardware stores in the smaller towns in the interior still have some good old stock.The three Home Hardware stores close to me here in Abbotsford and Langley don't have too much old stock.

The brighter the better.

The Home Hardwares I managed to stop at along the AlCan had some cool old stock. The Dawson Creek one has tons of stuff. That's where I got my spare 18 watt LPS lamp, and the one in Fort Nelson is where my GoldEye II came from. The one in Fort St. John was closed the day I passed by, and the one in Whitehorse seemed to be a fairly new store. On the Alaska side of the highway, I've checked out the hardware store in Delta and they didn't have any old stock to speak of. I'd still like to checkout the one in Tok, but unfortunately that's a 7 hour round trip.

I was watching Total Recall last night and I saw some of these in the scene where they've just arrived on Mars. Looked like 18w lamps in them.

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