315W CMH,and CHPS(600W).Compared the ceramic High pressure sodium to a Deluxe 250W HPS-the CHPS is whiter and gives a higher quality of light.The arc tube does run hotter.The CHPS does take about 20 min to get to its rated output and color.Running this in a Hortilux SE 600 fixture.A Hortiluix Blue MH came with this-and it gives a surprizingly good color quality.That light takes about 10 min to warm up.the fixture ballast is a 100Khz sine wave digital.Another bonus of this--no flicker on moving objects viewed under the light.Same with the 100Hz square wave ballast CMH 315W.

All HPS lamps are ceramic, since they uses PCA ceramic material arctubes.

I know all HPS are ceramic-but the CHPS term is what Hortilux uses for their CHPS lamps-the only one available right now is 600W.Another interesting theing is the 600W HPS bulb is not available seperatly-only comes with the SE600 light fixture.The Hortilux dealers say the bulbs should be available alone in the future.The arc tube does have larger,thicker,white color end caps.The arc tube is not all one piece construction.Would like to see how they make these arc tubes.The lamps and fixtures are built in their Mentor,Ohio site.

MV, HPS, MH, then incandescent. Though I like fluorescent as well but mostly in smaller form factor like CFL and plug in base types.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

I love exotic discharge lamps myself:
  • Spectral lamps
  • Geissler tubes
  • neon lamps
  • incandescent arc lamps (Pointolite and zirconium arc)
  • old medium pressure mercury lamps (MA- MB-)
  • linear sodium lamps (SLI)
  • blended mercury lamps (self-ballasted)
are all types I am extremely interested in.
Recently I have also become interested in fluorescent lighting as well, and have acquired some T17 lamps.  I stick mainly to F20T12 collecting though as my space is limited ;)
I stay away from xenon arc lamps.  I have no interest in keeping bombs in my house :o

Xenon lamps are still dangerous even when not lit!Handle with care and wear eye protection-face shield,heavy gloves and a thick jacket.If you have such a bulb in your collection-keep it in its packaging and safety case.I have one a projectionist gave me a long time ago.Keep it in its case.Don't want to fool around with it.Go to YouTube and you can see videos of what unlit Xenon bulbs can do and how dangerous they can be.
