TRAC Dominator

New and unused, this floodlight had been kept in storage for some time, before entering the collection in September 2011.

 

I hope there's a floodlight in this box, or else, this page is going to be extremely short!

 

Fortunately, the good people at TRAC had included a floodlight within the box! The floodlight's case is of an all-polycarbonate construction, with a steel stirrup bracket.

 

The section of the cover immediately in front of the lamp area protrudes outwards, in order to maximise light output.

 

 

A relatively narrow aluminium reflector surrounds the lamp; below that is the ballast and capacitor. There is no ignitor fitted, as the floodlight is intended to be used with an internal-ignitor lamp. A small bag containing the bracket fixing bolts can also be seen. Dates on the components suggest that the floodlight was made in 2000/1.


 

Once a little amount of electricity was provided, the floodlight sprung into life.
