Better image of the label perhaps?  Maybe an image looking into the housing?  Could this be an architectural lighting fixture?

Does holding back information help?

 

Can an ETC Source4 be used as an architectural lighting fixture?

Speculating here, but perhaps to achieve the light pointing down, using a head and lamp type that many not allow this to be done safely otherwise?

DN Labs?, no header cable or ballast visible....  You think this is a 1200w HM because..... the seller says so?  Could it be a Metal Halide or Mercury Vapor?

seller info

The mirror allows a 90deg downward beam if needed, it attaches to the ears of the light. Pars of its day would overheat if the head was pointed downward for too long, would cook the electronics in the back of the head.

It's an HMI PAR for sure. Yes you can't orient an HMI so that the ignitor is right above the globe - you'd cook the insuation there (and it's not the best place to damage insulation as there's a hot restrike circuit under 7-10-15kV).

Does it come with that Lighmaker ballast?
