Ballast codes of MHs, HPSs, LPSs. and Mercury. « on: October 11, 2006, 01:49:50 PM » Author: FGS
Where i can find a list saying what watt goes with what ANSI code of the ballast and what type goes where. Ex- 150w HPS goes in S55 Ballast.

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.

What is S76 for HPS?

The future of street lighting is Induction, not nasty HPS lights or cr@ppy LED lights!

Nothing like the beautiful cool white light of a coated Mercury Vapor lamp and the soothing hum of it's magnetic ballast.

Which of them are compatible between different ballasts/lamps ? Eg. which wattages of mercury lamp work ok on the same power MH ballast, MH lamp on HPS ballast etc

Hum, odd I can't find S167. I have S104 and S105 for 50w & 100w SDW-T white SON lamps, respectively.

What is S167? White Sodium or CMH? I came across this SDW-TG-100W lamp which needs S167.

S167 is not included. Our table here is superior, in that HQI lamps have their sperate section and probe vs pulse are highlighted better. When I find the C codes I'll include here.

In European countries, lamp arc voltages and lamp currents would be memorized in order to match the lamps with their correct ballasts?

Memorizing lamp voltages and currents would be difficult for anyone, so I'm sure Europeans rely on the etch or packaging sold with the lamp.
