Very cool lamp! Wish we had 2000w MV lamps in the USA. I second that, sorry about your friend.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

That mogul base looks like a candelebra base on that monster! That lamp must be at least as large as an m250r2...

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

That's a really nice addition to your collection Wieger (and sorry for your loss). These 2kW HPL lamps are very rare - these were used primarily in high-bay luminaires in industrial settings and for the lighting of large outdoor areas (e.g. sport fields, railway switch-yards, etc.). These were eventually phased out as a result of the "democratization" of high power HPI and SON lamps.

It is very interesting to see that the manufacture of those beasts was already transferred to Turnhout, Belgium, in early 1979. It did not remain in production there very long since the HPL-N 2000W was phased out around 1982. I also see that the lamp base was changed toward the late 1970s, you can see here and there the configuration of earlier 2kW HPL lamps made in Eindhoven before the transfer to Turnhout.

@ Monkeyface: the HPL-N 2000W is a bit larger than your Musco Z 1500W. Its precise dimensions are 445x185 mm (LxD) while your lamp is 391x178 mm.
