Rare that I come across very dim and still working lamps, anyways these fixtures have issues once 10+ years old since the factory wiring is not high temp wire.. doesn't help it comes in right above the lamp and after it goes EOL they tend to short out from the ignitor pulsing

Is this a glow discharge that struck inside the outerbulb?

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 hope that LED won't replace all forms of other light

Do you just replace the ballast when the wiring shorts out?

@wattmaster: yeah sometimes the ballast is ok after shorted wiring is repaired, usually it burns off enough to create a big enough gap not to short

E-conolight has a very similar model available on their website.
https://www.e-conolight.com/100-watt-psmh-ruud-premium-recessed-canopy-light.html

They also have $10 PSMH canopy lights!

Pardon my ignorance, but what is a fail-safe HID fixture ? The term fail-safe is widely used in the locksmith world, but I have never heard it in the lighting world.

Oh, just a trademark... interesting. In the lock world, it refers to any electrified lock (think access card) that unlocks upon loss of power. That way, it fails in a "safe" state so as not to lock in the occupants upon a power failure. This contrasts to fail-secure which locks upon power loss. A magnetic lock (a large brick shaped magnet that holds a door closed until it is unlocked by a computer system) is fail-safe because an electromagnet will not have attraction if power is cut. There are other different styles that are fail-safe as well.

Yea, I'm thinking I might get one too. I don't know what I would do with it though.
