Easily recognisable by its
distinctive 'diving-helmet' shape and by its 3-flanged base, this is
one of the most commonly found types of Super 8 and Standard 8 projector lamps. If your projector is labelled as taking an 8V 50w lamp, this is
almost certainly the correct lamp to fit it. They are also often referred to
as CXR or CXL lamps, which are the standard American coding.
The A1/17 lamps that we currently stock are high quality versions made in Japan or Germany, not the cheap Chinese generic types that you may find on sale elsewhere.
They are exact equivalents to A1/185, A1/202 and A1/263 lamps - even though they look somewhat different they are 100% compatible.
We've got a comprehensive selection of Cine projector lamps for sale for Super 8, Standard 8 & 16mm machines. If this isn't the right one for your machine, please look at our other listings.
IS THIS THE CORRECT LAMP FOR YOUR PROJECTOR?
Your projector will nearly always have a label on either the side or the base saying what Voltage and Wattage Lamp it is designed to take. If you are not sure, take a good look at the machine - If it takes an A1/17 the label will say something like "Lamp 8v 50w".
You then need to check the lamp fitting in your projector. If it takes an A1/17 there will be a base with 3 protruding pins which will fit into the 'eyelets' of the lamp base as shown in the picture. There will be a recess in the centre 1 cm or so deep that the bottom of the lamp will fit into. If in any doubt, please contact us!
lamps are all new stock so there is no risk of buying a lamp that has
sat in a warehouse for years with corroded contacts. We buy lamps in bulk from major trade wholesalers, which is why we are able to offer quality products at low prices. We pack all our lamps carefully so as to ensure that they reach you in the same good condition that they are in now.
We specialise in Super 8 and Cine equipment: if you are unsure as to whether or not this is the correct lamp please contact us and we will be pleased to help.
