Lighting in my room

Lighting in my room

I thought it would be interesting to show the lights which are installed in my room at the moment.

So, as I successfully could acquire some clear (american) MV lamps, they had to be installed directly, because I just LOVE the color of clear mercs.

Because of this, there‘s a clear GE HR100A38 on the right side in the picture lit, on a 1.00A 70W sodium ballast. Works fine, since a few days. This lamp stays on usually the whole day and after approximately 100 hours of use now, it shows absolutely NO signs of blackening now.

Then for my desk light, there‘s a workshop lamp with a Philips TLD 15W/29 tube installed. The tube has a broken electrode, but it starts always instantly and works fine. The lamp was given to me a year ago from a friend, he said that it is broken because all the time when she fits a new tube in, it goes out with a loud POP and then the tube is dead and the fuse tripped. I found out why... It had no ballast inside! So i mounted a standard 15-20W series choke in the lamp housing and a starter socket, now it works perfectly fine.

On the support of this lamp is a E27 socket for lamp testing, right now a 13W Philips CFL fitted. Normally i use a 160W SBMV lamp there.

On the loudspeaker, there‘s one of these Chinese Caster 175W clear mercury lamp, mounted today. Works fine on a 150W sodium series choke.

In the corner left of the door, there‘s another lamp from a shop with high bay lighting, after a LED replacement. It‘s for 150W MH lamps and it came with a CDM-T lamp. Now I use an EOL Osram HQI-T 70W/WDL overdriven on 150W. Burner is black as the night and it stays in daylight-greenish color. Interestingly, it has aready done approximately 50 hours in this mode. Strong sucker!

Now to the lamps which are off: There‘s a Philips HPLR 1000W in front on the ceiling, for working purposes:) It runs on two series chokes for 1000W mercs (Yes, there are two ballasts needed, each one is 1/2 1000W).
To the left, there‘s a Iwasaki Eye MT400DL/BH (lovely high CRI daylight color) on a 400W MV ballast.
Further, on the ceiling mounted are twin F18 fluorescent fixtures, the visible side on the picture equipped with Philips TLD 18W/93 lamps, on the other side as well the same fixtures with Osram L18W/965 biolux lamps. Each fixture has one ballast for 36W/40W lamps and the tubes are working in series. Imaginge, if I turn on the light, there‘s a quite blink-happy start!

There would be as well a little self-made desk lamp for 9/11W PLS lamps, but unfortunately it is not visible here.

It‘s for sure, I‘ve no lack of light there!
