GT171-T12-100W Bi-Pin Wolff bulbs

I've been looking high and low for replacement bulbs for a Sunquest Pro 16SE bed. They use GT171-T12-100W Bi-Pin bulbs, but I've been unable to find them. Are these bulbs still available, or is there a direct replacement that I could readily find online?

Thanks,
Rich

I guess calling a lamp a bulb is poor choice of words on my part. Where I'm confused is whether an F71 >lamp< is the same as the GT171 that Wolff uses as a identifier. I know the 71 is the length, but does the F matter?

Thanks for your help,
Rich

Re: GT171-T12-100W Bi-Pin Wolff bulbs

Here is how the code works:

F= Florescent

71= length in inches

T= Diameter in eighths of an inch. T-12 is 12/8" or 1 1/2" in diameter

100w= lamp wattage in watts. This is what the lamp will tolerate, the ballast determines output to the lamp. Raising the lamp wattage does not raise output. The wattage is governed by the ballast. It is not like an incandescent lamp that is directly connected to line voltage.

R= Reflector. An R in the code designates that the lamp has a built in reflector. Lamps without an R in the code do not have a reflector. Reflector lamps push all of the light in one direction instead of an omni directional pattern.

Bi Pin= Lamp has two pins on each end of the lamp for connection.

RDC= Recessed Double Contact. Tamp has a reassessed connector on the end.

Single Pin= Lamp has a single pin on the end of the lamp for connection. This type is not used in the tanning industry.

HO= High Output. The wattage range of an HO lamp is 80-120 watts

VHO= Very High Output. The wattage range of a VHO lamp is 140-250 watts

VHR= Trademark of Cosmedico Corporation. This is widely used for VHO reflector lamps but it is a registered trademark.

Wolff System= This is a trademark for a lamp system that utilizes a non reflector lamp with an individual external reflector around each lamp. Most common setups use lamps grouped in two or three to a reflector. Wolff is not a bed or a lamp, just a design that is licensed to bed companies. It really is no longer used in this fashion as the reflectors are cost prohibitive to manufacture.

If you need lamps then let me know. Call the number below.
