First metal halide cobrahead i have seen. « on: August 21, 2009, 06:15:26 PM » Author: KEDER
Ive never seen a cobrahead fixture with metal halide on it, or maybe i have, but i dont remember it.

The one i saw was an AE model 125. 400w Metal halide. in front of the pool at my school.

well im not surprised its metal halide, cause all the lights around the school are metal halide (except for some HPS on the old buildings walls) but this is a loner cobrahead. ill try to get a picture one day. its lighting up a sidewalk. the pool is next to the4 old building. it has a red "40" nema tagon it.and it was an AE 125. have any of you seen ametal halide 400w AE 125?

I have seen MH fixtures, around here we have some GE M-400A3 MHs, along with some AE 115 MHs and GE M-250R2 MH....but good question on what was the very first MH cobrahead ever made, that is something I myself do not know.

At my school, they love metal halide lamps. even inside the building, (not the gym) they have those circle built in to the cieling HID MH lamps. some have MV in it though.

I have seen 400 watt MH cobraheads used on the highway in the Pittsburgh Mills area in Frazier near where I live.

Metal halide cobrahead around here are extremely rare. Only two places I have ever seen them. One is at a private road and FCO. Other is even more rare! It's a former HPS cobrahead converted to MH. (Has the yellow nema tag on it.)

As for the shoeboxes MHs. They're common as mud. ;) Only parking lots has them.

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.

There are many MH cobraheads that I know of, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, San Marino, Pasadena, Burbank, and others have em in select areas. They range from 100w to 1000w.

I've seen metal halide cobraheads near Montreal along autoroute 20 I think they were Lumec Helios fixtures and used 400W lamps.

In Ontario, the only metal halide streetlights are the gumballs installed in Toronto, I have only seen metal halide cobraheads in parking lots and private roads.
