PHILIPS NVF 125 « on: June 17, 2022, 06:53:27 PM » Author: Olav
My post with pictures here is for an oldie in the street lighting of France. A fixture that was introduced at the beginning of the 1950s. PHILIPS NVF 125.
For me a very big surprise and great pleasure that I discovered such oldies. They were still in operation in October 2021.
These fixtures were equipped with MV lamps 125W.
Page 67 of the PHILIPS catalog eclairage (F) shows the variants from 80W to 400W. There were two different sized fixtures.

The small version for 80W and 125W, the large version for 250W and 400W.  You can hardly find these fixtures anymore.

I had one barely used NVF 125 but I gave it away last year. The small village where I reside in the weekends had one installed till the mid 1990s. What I find interesting is that the reflector panels are movable and one can adjust the light distribution. Also the lamp socket is installed on a bracket which can be shifted and in the end the whole lantern is mounted on a rotule which allows the lantern to be inclined to the intended position.
