Copied this from a forum for indoor steathy gardeners. I think the codes are generally useful to those doing their own lighting and buying junk off of eBay.

 

Metal Halide

M130 - 35/39 watt MH

M110 - 50 watt MH (standard and pulse start)

M85 - 70 watt MH (double-ended and BiPin lamps)

M98 - 70 watt MH (standard, pulse start, and operates some double - ended and BiPin lamps)

M139 - 70 watt MH (ceramic metal halide, some double - ended, and some BiPin lamps)

M90 - 100 watt MH (standard, pulse start, and operates some double - ended lamps)

M91 - 100 watt MH (double-ended and BiPin lamps)

M140 - 100 watt MH (ceramic metal halide, some double - ended, and some BiPin lamps)

*European lamps = M137 operates SOME European lamps designed for 4kV starting.

*European lamps = M80 operates European lamps that operate on high pressure sodium ballasts + MH

ignitors in Europe.

*European lamps = M138 and M135 operates SOME European lamps that operate on mercury vapor ballasts + MH ignitors in

Europe.

*Eupean lamps = S51operates SOME European lamps that operate on high pressure sodium ballasts.

*Some metal halide = S51 / S50 operates North American and European converson lamps (retrofit).

*High pressure sodium = M57, M58, M59, and M47 operates some high pressure sodium converson lamps

(usually used for growing plants) Check with manufacturer for proper ballast circuit to be used. (CWA, CWI, R, HX, or Reg Lag)

*High pressure sodium = H47, H39, H37, H33 and H36 operates some high pressure sodium converson lamps (used for general and

plant lighting) Check with manufacturer for proper ballast circuit to be used. (CWA, CWI, R, HX, or Reg Lag)
