[Gone] Powerlite Fluorescent Streetlights O_o

Came across some old Powerlite Devices fluorescent streetlights, there are three of them out of the two pictured. I'm not sure when were these offered and its model number. I believe these use 6' HO or VHO lamps. Reminds me a lot of the original fluorescent streetlights used on the Gardiner

Anyways here's the closeup:

WOW cool! So these are still in service today? Thats amazing! And wow it sure looks cold up there! Here in California its like 68-75F in the day.

Thanks Dave! And yeah they still work at night although this is actually a parking lot. We had some snow but it wasn't that cold here...probably around -5C/23F yesterday. All the snow melted today since it warmed up to around 5C/41F today and because of the rain.

Now I wonder if this could also be a Powerlite since the design is really similar except the linked light is shorter than this one.

HOLY CRAP, this is Canadian styling design for ya! If an LED fixture looked like this, wouldn't it be graceful Very Happy

Update: these have been replaced with LED Mad lights over the summer. They stick out like a sore thumb on these old poles since the old Powerlite fluorescents had really deep slipfitters though.

Yeah, they're my favourite fluorescent streetlight design. They certainly look very sleek on those davit poles.

Yay! LED's! Lol. LED's aren't that bad. They replaced a whole bunch of HPS lights on I-70 with LED's and I gotta say the light all the LED's give out is very impressive, I love the color.

Ehh, I still think the old Powerlites look better than the LED and also most LED parts are not standardized like HID and fluorescent parts which means if a LED array dies or the driver does you have to replace the fixture.

PSMH and CMH give off light very similar to LED in terms of color but without the excessive glare and concentrated beam that LEDs have. Plus you can but four times as many PSMH units as LED units with the same amount of money. LED panels can be repalced on some designs like with some of the cooper designs. With the OVH or OVF i believe you need to repalce the whole group of diodes... LED technoledgy and fixtures are greatly improving and once they becomes less expensive and are marketed fairly (meaning they don't sudgest replacing a 150W HPS light with a 44W LED light) so the road is lit properly and maybe manufacturers will hear my cries and ADD A FREAKIN DROP LENS!!! That will make me like LEDs. Plus maybe make the fixtures a little more asthetically pleasing so my eyes don't throw up when i look at them lol.
