Re: [APD] Metal Halide lights on timers

Hmmm, these complications seem like one more strike against
those beautiful but expensive things called MH lamps.

Nope, they shouldn't. I used to run a 400 watt MH fixture on a hardware store timer (an inductive load rated intermatic unit) for over a year without problems. The original poster most likely either has some defective component somewhere or the timers are extra low quality since they shouldn't fail as quick as was stated in the post.
