    Same specs for the 5a ands 6a if I read correctly.

    It sould have a 150W bulb with 75mm diameter, I believe. Same as my Opemus 6, if I were to use it with condensers (I don't, I have a colour head and itr's great).

    There is a manual for the Opemus 5 (not 5A) enlarger on the English side of the Meopta site. Here is the link:

    Also, have you tried these people:

    Hope this helps

    The lamp that you need if you had 115 volt power, is a PH 212. It is a 150 watt enlarger lamp and is sold by the Bulbman.com and BandH Photo.com I don't know about your voltage though. I imagine that you are at 230 volt service.

    I think that the correct bulb will make a big difference.

    I had to design a retrofit involving a reflector for my Durst 138S
    when I went to a 1000 watt lamp...so bulb (hence physical size of the light source) makes a big difference.

    Yep, that is what I have in there now. It doubles as a tanning light while I print. Provides heat in the three days of winter that we have here. It's a little on the fast side. LOL
