A Siemens SL100 lantern with a cycling HPS lamp « on: August 27, 2010, 05:01:01 AM » Author: dor123

This lantern photographed early in the morning in 05:40 (Israel clock), and this is the reason for the blackness in this video.
This lantern uses superimposed ignitor to reignite the lamp.

There's a supermarket near me that uses SON lamps and there's always some that cycle. Once I saw a group of 3 together all randomly cycling on and off, they seem to lack any proper maintenance staff there.

Not meaning to change the subject but have either of you two ever seen a mercury cycle?

I had one cycling, but it was more a result of an old, but not uch used lamp combined with regular mains voltage dips (from wood chopper varying load).
New lamp "survived" this without extinguishing the arc...

@magslight: I had saw many HPS and MH lamps cycling. Several do like the lamp in this fixture and others just flashed in a fixed speed until they turned on.
I have other videos of reignitions of cycling HPS lamps in the forum.
