General Electric M-1000 (With Glass Lens Missing)

General Electric M-1000 (With Glass Lens Missing)


I was just wondering: Is that a Metal Halide lamp in there?
I need to confirm this for my website.

I've don't think I've seen G.E. M-1000s use Metal Halide lamps.
Mercury Vapor lamps is the only thing I've seen 'em use.
I hope someone can help me.

Yes it is def a MH lamp in there! I wonder, is it used with MV ballast or did they change the ballast to MH? I know there are MH retrofit lamps for MV ballasts.....a MH lamp in a MV ballast would darken very fast

This lamp looks like a Sylvania to me too!

There are certain CWA mercury ballasts where a conventional 1000 watt MH lamp will work. However, there also must be a 480 volt open circuit voltage and the wattage will be reduced to 950 watts.

This looks like the luminaire was indeed reballasted.

I think that's a sylvania too. Never seen the M-1000s as FCOs, except those that lost their reflactors. Better MHs than HPS.

Why I like LEDs on top of other lighting tech?
LEDs = Upgrade 95% of the applications. (That is if you avoid eBay's LEDs).


LED brainwash? No, people uses them cuz they work well for them.

Looks like there is a Flat Glass fitted this is common in the UK with Metal Halide Lights, maybe the Lighting Authority removed the origional Refractor Bowl (Non-Cutoff), to a Flat Glass to produce a Full Cutoff Light. the Biggest wattge Street light I kve seen in the UK is 40 watts except for High Mast Lighting which, uses 400 to 1000 watts HPS/MH lamps, Early 1970s High Mast Lighting did use 1000w Mercury Lamps.

All the Best

If it is a shopping plazza, it was probely upgraded to MH because in the Garden City, there used to be lots of MV and HPS but were changed to MH because of the low light level and the orange light. They didn't change the NEMA tags though.
