Question relating to Britek lights

Just received my lights from rostronics. I am based in the UK. Does anyone know where I can get 240V bulbs for these.
1000W (RS1000)
300W
650W

Also, lighting stands for the above (postage from US would have been prohibitive). The 300W lamps seem to have a different connector system than the others.

The bulbs required (3 letters code) are listed on the lamp itself for each power system. You should have no problem finding them locally.

The smaller lamp have a different connector but use the same stand. Any stand with the standard 5/8 male stud will work.

Thanks for the info. I found all the codes on the side of the lamps. The one I have trouble sourcing is the 1000W bulb.

Anyone know of any UK suppliers ???

Could you post the ANSI codes from the bulbs that came with the lights? I'd like to have this information

The codes are as follows.

GY650 Lamp - DYR 3200K 650W GY9.5 base
UK equiv (240V) - A1/233

G300 Lamp - JCD 3200K 300W G6.35 base
UK equiv (240V) - A1/249

RS1000 Lamp - JPD 3200K 1000W R7s base
I think I have found an equivalent UK bulb today, just waiting for it to arrive. Looks like the ARRI 1000 lamp uses the same one. P2/35 240V 1000W
