A super rarity fixture here! This fixture is being used as a underpass fixture! I'm not too sure if this fixture has gotten replaced by a LED streetlight, because this is a street view from 2018.

This fixture with a rare wattage is REAL! Its not photoshopped. I can prove it that its in TXDOT's electrical supplies pdf. Look in "item 610 Roadway illumination assemblies-HPS luminaires" and its there.

These are not rare in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. They also have custom M400R2s with M250R2 reflectors used in them for underpasses in 100w and 150w HPS. Lots of 150w OVWs around Dallas and such. Still very cool.

Thats very nice! But the problem with these fixtues is, its a 240/480v fixture. So it won't work with 120v. Unless, they used a 240v or 277v circuit, which would be a 120/208/240/277v fixture.

Well you can always use transformers or replace with a 120v ballast

I thinking remote ballasting is a better choice, because it keeps the fixture original without removing anything from the fixture. Which is to wire up the socket to the remote ballast.

Well of course you can always put the ballast back if needed. If I were to do that I’d keep the original ballast and use another, just putting the original ballast into the box of the new ballast.
