I used to work in the Northeast, Sunderland / Washington area Street lighting, No ***** node systems back then, We had a PFI that started in 2003 and ended in 2009. SON Philips irridiums from 50w plus, were used all over the City of sunderland and Washington town, EVERYTHING that was put in was Magnetic Ballast and Ignitor gear

Company i worked for was Aurora.

Hi Dan, good to hear from you.
Our Harvard system is roughly 3 years old now and to be fair isn't a bad setup. When It was first installed I had a lot of rogue reports just like you are describing. On Harvard they came in as "Lamp Aged Lamp Shutdown". When you go to site and try the lantern it works fine. If you swap the lamp the reports continued. In the end we had to return a load of electronic chokes which they replaced. That has died down nowadays and the only real reports we get are lamps which are a few years old now. I'm slightly sceptical of how "end of life" they really are- be interesting to try them on normal cell-controlled gear to see if they shut down.

Cheers, Davy

Sounds like the HP ink cartridge - out of ink but still plenty enough left to print if you force it!
