A workhorse 3 is what you need. I just don't know where to get it alone however. Mine came with the AHS 55W bright kit.

www.atlantalightbulbs.com has them, also if you have a local Grainger, you could try there. Many other places online too.

Google for "Fulham" and/or "Workhose 3"

www.fulham.com has more info on it, including wiring diagrams.
