with the same ballast your only paying more for enlarged optics and maybe a throw in mounting arm.

ITT Low Pressure Sodium NEMA

That's basicly it.  The ballast, PC and bulb are the same.  The Deluxe is the ballast housing with 12" optics, an easy mounting bracket, a light blocker strip, a PC cover with a diffused window and a grill for the bottom of the optics.
The optics are a heavier plastic and mount more firmly to the housing than their regular barn buckets, and should hold up longer.
Of course, with the way Regent/Cooper mounts their ballasts, ya could easily convert one of these to almost any kind of light ya want.

(I picked one up cheap on clearance)

Also a bigger housing gotta mean it runs cooler, therefor lasting longer

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.

I gotta figure the cooling fins help to dissipate some of the heat...which is the biggest enemy of ballast and wiring (and cap if one is present).

it would suck less if they quit using ballasts that are undersized for their intended purpose.

There is a HPS "delux" bucket light not away of me and the lamp began to cycle only a year after the installation! That's a Copper fixture by the way...

the head or ballaast housing is the same as the regular version,the only thing bigger are the optics...prehaps since the lense is a little bit further from the lamp than in the regular version with the 9"optics it will yellow less,cause i've visibilly observed that yardblasters with the 12"optics yellow at a slower rate.

Oh your talking about the one that looks like it's trying to be a NEMA.  THAT one is the same as the standard yardblaster but with a 12" refractor instead of an 8" and a mounting arm included.
The optics yellow just as badly  :P
