GE Multi-vapor coated 250w

I got this lamp and an Advance f32t8 magnetic ballast from Solanaceae in exchange for a pair of Philips lifeguards. In this picture it is at full power and has around the same color as a /DX merc only with thinner phosphor and better CRI. In this test it is running in my m250r2 with the ignitor disconnected. If I ever install my m250r2 outside it will probably be with this lamp since it is not very glarey.

I have the uncoated version
For some time, I thought multi-vapor was some other HID lamp I never heard of, But I found out it was just a brand name.

I also have the clear version of this lamp. When I was still a lighting noob I also thought that it meant that they could run on mercury vapor ballasts or something.

coated lamp in an FCO fixture. Doesn't get any more neighbor-friendly than that.

That's what I was thinking too. As much as I would like to use a drop lense if I install this outside, I would have to ask if the neighbors would like their yard lit like day too. For some reason this seems much brighter than the clear multi vapor I have and even the PSMH lamp, does the coating increase brightness somehow?

In DX merc lamps, the coating raises the lumens and color quality.

unlike your cat, my cat does not like to steal lamps.

Nope, the coating actually blocks light in MH lamps.

That's unusual. I wonder why this lamp seems so much brighter?

Is the other one used? MH lamps lose a lot of lumens as they age. A 250W probe start MH lamp is as bright as a 400W MV when new, but it soon depreciates to the output of a 250W MV.

No, they are all new. The clear one was used for around 48 hours in my chicken coop before being replaced with a coated merc.
