Schreder sox

Postby chanceskydiver » Wed Mar 07, 2012 12:27 pm

Hi a friend of mine was going to give me a Schreder street light from Netherlands and wondered if the voltage difference 220-230v Netherlands and U.K. being 240v would be ok would I need to change the gearing?
any help would be appreciated

I believe the mains voltage is now standardised across Europe at 230v, a halfway house between 220v and 240v even though if you take voltage reading at home it could be something like 237v or even around the 250 mark! Your Dutch lantern should be fine! Check inside incase the ballast has any voltage tappings!
I LOVE LAMP!

Yep it should be OK as SOX Lanterns can take the Tolerance better than SON and Metal Halide, re the Schreder lantern it sounds like it may be the Z1 series or if it's the huge Lantern for 135/180w SOX it could be the RX Lantern

All the Best
