HID ANSI Code Guide

Posted by Kolmart.com on 10/2/2010
HID Ballast and Lamp ANSI codes including Mercury Vapor, Low Pressure Sodium, High Pressure Sodium and Metal Halide. All HID ballast and lamps have an ANSI number on them. Use this code sheet to determine your ballast or lamp wattage. Ballast and lamp ANSI codes should always match, meaning if you have an M59 ballast, you should use an M59 lamp for example.

Is there any small pocket type books with other lamp codes on them such as aU indicates universal lamp versus a BU type lamp?

Can I use a M155 lamp with a M59 ballast? I keep finding these lamps intslled with this ballast and was wondering if this combination would work. It seems to me that the lamps just dont last very long.

Does S54 tell me how manufacturers deterine lamp life of a 100W HPS lamp? If so, can you send me a copy?

Hi- I have some 175 watt mercury vapor Fixtures and I was wondering which metal halide or high pressure sodium lamps, I could use in them? Any help is greatly appreciated? Thank you very much. Be well, Dr JS Rise

I know its not a match but will an M141/E 1000W MH lamp work in a parking lot fixture that has a ballast M47/E it apears that they work but it take a long time for the lamps to ignite. This was an emergency fix and the M141s were all that was available at the time. Thanks

I was wondering if a Philips 250w alto will interchange with a GE lucalox lu150/55 ?

What results should I get using a M152 bulb with a M57 ballast? Most times it works, but for how long?

This table is a great help. I am doing some certification now and it would great if I can reference the ANSI/NEMA standard that list out and defines all these ballast types. Can you let me know the ANSI Standard # ... Thanks Frank

Don't mix wattages of lamps & ballasts. Not electrically compatible. Both ballast & lamp can be damaged. Generally, you should not mix probe with pulse start metal-halide. LOOK at the lamps; probe has 3 electrodes (like MV), pulse has 2. With 2 lamp-electrodes, clearly you need an ignitor.

I am hoping to replace a 150 watt metal halide lamp (which has a ballast) with an LED lamp which will function with an input voltage of 85-300 volts. Do I need to bypass the old ballast prior to installing the LED or will the LED work with the old ballast? ************************* Response: LED lamps are self ballested, and will not work with a metal halide ballast. Most LED Lamps run on 120V, so straight 120V is best. There are LED lamps that will work on 277V, but you will have to look for those.
