This is the lamp I got for my 201SA head. It's a Philips Ceramalux Alto 70w mogul base HPS. Has a green dimple on the top that looks cool. Got it for $9.50. Manufacture date is September 19, 2002.

Green dimple means it has lower mercury dose inside the lamp. Positive thing is it saves environment...but bad thing is....SHORTER life....so I honestly don't like the idea of the lower mercury dose...since it shortens live and shortens the USE of the mercury.

But yes green dimple does look cool! I got a lot of them...Some medium base CMH doesn't have a green dimple but a green paste inside the base of the lamp instead of white!

I don't get why they call them Alto lamps. Alto means "tall" in spanish..... The older altos weren't that bad. But the newer ones- horrible! Sylvania is a much better alternative.

Alto also means "stop" in Spanish

I guess there are gullable people who still continues to buy this type of junk, hence they still make this type of junk Razz

Seems to work OK so far. I'll compare it to my other HPS light which has been in service for 6 months, and see which one starts cycling first!

Oh it will work...in fact it will last longer on open bottom NEMA bucket light than a enclosed fixture with extremely reflective fixtures....you'll probably get about 4-5 years on it.....but 2 years or less on an enclosed tightly sealed cobrahead......

Or two days depending, its not bad for the environment if you recycle them Wink
