Click to view full size image

Here is the lamp section of the Cora 3. the canopy is made of GRP while the rest of the fixture is Aluminium. These fixtures came with a acrylic shallow bowl but it was also available with a plane hardened glass. As the ballast for the MV lamp is a dual tab type for either MV 125 or 250W a E40 socket is mounted but here for the 125W bulb a socket reduction is fitted for MV 125W with E27.

I think that he replaced one of the MV choke with leak transformer, and replaced one of the sockets to BY22D, to install the LPS lamp.

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 (dd.mm.yyyy).

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

Great design. MV provides white light that is more pleasant at night, as well as boosting CRI. The LPS lamp also seems like a good idea, because it could cut through fog at night. If I ever have the money, I might try to make one of these with an 18w SOX and 35w MH lamp.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

If you use a clear MV lamp, the contrast between it and the LPS would make it appear whiter.

This fixure is original! I did not replace any ballasts nor sockets!
There were several manufacturer and models of streetlights in Switzerland having one SOX combined with MV or HPS lamp and this is just one version here.
This setup was most common since the late 1950's till mid 80's. Usually the MV lights only from dask till midnight while the SOX is being on all night long.

Can you tell us the total weight of the fixture with both ballasts, lamps & cover? Size is a reasonable 55 x 16 x 11 in inches.

Yes it's quite large. The weight is about 15kg (33 lb)
I'll have a look in the catalogue for the precise weight.

Never heard of this type of fixture...were they unique to Switzerland?
