Local OrangeTEK Ignis Mini Plus Lanterns
The Ignis Mini+ LED lantern began to appear, along with sister lantern, the Ignis 1, in parts of Derbyshire in February 2022, as a replacement for older, non-LED equipment.
This post-top 8 m example is located in Buxton, and replaced a WRTL Arc running a 100 Watt SON-T lamp.
The label on the underside of the lantern can be translated thus:
O = OrangeTEK
45 = Wattage
M4 = Lighting Class
Had the code included an 'N', this would indicate a non-dim lantern; however, as this is not present, the lantern will be configured to the standard Derbyshire dimming regime.
The photocell is a Zodion ZCellLED.
Elsewhere in Buxton is this side-entry example, installed at 10 m, and replacing a Philips SGS 203 150 Watt SON-T lantern.
Being designed to light larger roads, this example runs at 73 Watts. The LED array is also slightly different.
Another post-top example is seen; this time, in Chesterfield.
An Arc used to be installed here too, and prior to that, a Philips MA 50 135 Watt SOX lantern (with lamp control gear installed remotely) was fitted side-entry.
These nearby columns retained side-entry brackets, however.
An adaptor installed within the lantern's spigot entry allows narrower diameter brackets to be accommodated, helped by long grubs being supplied with each lantern.
This example can be found just south of the A38 'Watchorn' roundabout, in Swanwick.
Owing to a manufacturing wiring mismatch (the 'live' and 'load' wires in the photocell's NEMA socket were transposed), the LEDs in this lantern flashed constantly when installed initially, but the fault had been rectified by the time that these pictures were taken.
The aforementioned adaptor is just visible within this lantern's spigot entry.
