160W SBMV lamp for project « on: April 26, 2018, 01:37:18 PM » Author: Flurofan96
Hi all  Smiley

I need a SBMV lamp that is 160W or similar for a conversion project for my Coughtrie outdoor fixture that currently uses 150W incandescent and I thought wouldn't it perform better with an SBMV in it


Requirements are:

B22/BC base cap

For 230V (UK mains) voltage

Looked on ebay only for those with E27 base caps to pop up and I don't know if you can get ceramic B22=E27 adaptors because plastics ones will definately not thank the heat coming from a 160W SBMV lamp   Angry


I will pay whatever price and do lamp trades

EYE do 100W ones with BC caps, see here

The main page says E27 but if you look at the spec sheet PDF it says they are available with BC caps. The lower wattage might be better in an enclosed fitting and would certainly be smaller. They also say universal burning position.

Hi MissRiaElaine  Smiley

Thank you so much for this suggestion. I will definitely go with 100W SBMV lamp as that will lessen the heat strain. Plus the good thing is about my coughtrie fixture is that the BC socket is a ceramic type so it can handle the heat from a 100W SBMV lamp and the heat output could be similar to a 150 incandescent lamp or slightly higher so it wont be too much of a difference (please correct me if I am wrong) and therefore the smaller size will ensure me that it will fit in nicely.

I will happily go for a coated one because not only its only obtainable in coated but the colour of the filament and the arc tube will be blended perfectly  Cool

Now how do I order from EYE IWASKIE lighting, via phone or their online shop, either way I hope the ordering and delivery process will go smooth

Glad to be of help, I think the PDF file does give the dimensions of the lamp, so you'll be able to tell if it fits before ordering. Not sure how to order from them, they may not sell direct to the public, all you can do is ring or email them and ask. If they don't sell direct, they'll be able to put you in touch with a reseller.

Let us know how you get on, I'll look forward to seeing a photo of it lit  Grin

I would check the inside `space` in the bulkhead first like Ria says, a 150watt GLS is 125mm long, where as the average MBTF is 156mm, (100watt), and the 160s are the same size as a 125watt merc at 177mm!
even the smaller 100watt will be 31mm longer than the 150 GLS, doesn`t sound a lot, but I have had all these headaches trying to get 18watt SOX to fit things in the past where every mm counts! Wink

Any news on this project..? It's possible I may have missed any photos posted as I was on holiday for 2 weeks since the last post here.
