I’m pretty interested in these- do you know which NEMA spread you have (7H x 6V, 5H x 5V and 4H x 4V)? About how much area do you think yours illuminates?
And thanks for the warning Chall, but I’m not too concerned with Potomac horse fever. Colorado is a pretty arid state and I’m not near any large bodies of water. Besides, I mainly want the light for after the time change, and we’ve already had a freeze. The light will be on when I do chores or when I ride, but I’m not leaving it on all night every night.[/QUOTE]
Looking at the info I have from my electrician, it is 7H x 6V.
It does a pretty impressive job lighting the space between the south end of my barn and the north fenceline of my south fields, which google tells me is about 60 feet. Into the fields (so more than 60 ft from the light) it’s not real bright, but there’s more than enough light to keep me from killing myself tripping over something or running into a horse, and I can check water.
It’s a bit bright walking back to the barn, but I’d say that’s also because the barn is up a bit of a slope.
The price I mentioned above is also what it cost to have the electrician purchase and install it (electrical was already there…we replaced an existing fixture that had failed.)
I have a spec sheet that I don’t see on the website if you’d like to take a peek–just shoot me your email and I would be glad to forward.
