Hello from South Dakota!

In my van I keep a folder full of troublshooting guides that I have colected over the years for quick reference.

One of those guides gives the voltage at the socket for each kind of metal halide, and murcury vapor lamps. If I feel a ballast is bad I look up the wattage of the lamp and it tells me the voltage at the socket.

I have several new JW's that have a hard time troublshooting HID fixtures and would like to find this chart again.

I looked online, but am drawing a blank. can someone point me in the right direction for a web site that has this.

I found it once before, but have since lost my mind! [Linked Image]

It's not a chart but it has the info along with a lot more.

It's a free download and I recommend it to anyone who works on HID lighting.

I went to the site and the guide has "shaded" out areas instead of pictures/charts on pages 32-33-34 (and others).

Did your copy have the appropriate pictures/charts on all the pages?

Thanks
