"black tip" lamp
Posted 14 February 2007 - 01:53 AM
The black tip is to reduce internal reflections, however, we are unsure which side has to face the front lens.
Here are 2 pictures of both sides of the lamp, is there someone in the know out there?
There is no info in the Dedo website and also the manual is not clear about the position.

Haven't used Dedo's, but logic says - if the black side is toward the reflector, what is the reflector for? In my repair days I saw many assorted fixtures with a metal tab shielding the lamp on the lens side.
My 150W Dedolight tungsten lamp shielding has slightly different design. The black shield is built inside the globe holder on the aspheric lens side, instead of coming with the globe. So I would say your lamp black shield should face the lens.
