Has anybody ever seen these or know what brand they are ? You may have to rotate the pic and zoom to see them !

Hello, check out my gallery pics, I have 2 of these. The ID tags on mine say they are "Widelight" made by ITT Corporation. That generated a bit of discussion, I'm in western Canada, so maybe it was labeled differently for the Canadian market.

the Wide-Lite floods are still made, believe it or not . They were only available in mercury vapor originally but as time progressed  they were also available in HPS and MH. Do your Wide-Lites have fins on top of the ballast can ? If not their probably newer versions (unless the ballasts have been replaced)

I didn't know they are still made. I thought they were discontinued in the early 2000's. Do you know where you can still get them? I'd love to get one in PSMH someday but it would probably be insanely expensive.

this is dated 12/18 http://www.lightingproducts.signify.com/Documents/webdb2/Gardco/pdf/F_series_floodlight.pdf  wheather or not they still exist is another story .

There are 3 nos ones on eBay right now not exactly cheap, but not horribly priced either .   https://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-General-Electric-FS-1000-C-TDB-Flood-Light-Enclosure-F-Series-w-Transformer/151390123818?_ The ballast is 480 v (useless !) but they are allover eBay.
