Reptech HID UV lamp 50watt
The Reptech HID UV lamp is based on the High Intensity Discharge technology with optimum UV radiation. Ideal lighting for amphibians, reptiles and birds. Pure daylight (5000K) has a full light spectrum with an essential ratio of UV radiation (UVA / UVB) that guarantees appetite, activity, colors, calcium absorption by making vitamin D3. Due to the lamp there is a considerable increase in the breeding success.

The Reptech HID UV lamp ensures high UV stability with optimum quality compared to other lighting such as fluorescent lamps and UV energy-saving lamps.

I believe this is Dutch lighting -- someone had this in their tank and had to change it out as it was too strong I believe he said - he went to the Reptisun lighting

Can't find any info at all on it as far as spectral analysis goes, or strength of UV output.
All red flags IMO.

The manufacturer doesn't even offer a recommended distance.

I had never heard of it but the guy got rid of it and went to the Reptisun bulb--- looks like the bulbs failed from what the guy told me---
