Venture Lighting Metal Halide Lamps
These lamps are designed to replace standard 250 and 400 Watt metal halide lamps with equivalent light output. They operate on reactor/ignitor ballast systems specifically designed to optimise life and lumen maintenance.
Higher lumen output versus standard designsUp to 50 Watt system savingsLonger life (up to 20000 hours)Faster warm up and hot re-strikeImproved lumen maintenanceReduced colour shiftUV Shielded (up to 80%)Better cold temperature starting (-40°C)
These lamps produce a clear white light and are suitable for display or floodlighting, where the heat output from tungsten halogen lamps would create a problem. Metal Halide Lamps have an efficiency approx. 4 times higher than halogen lamps and xenon lamps. In addition, the short-arc type is similar to a point light source, making optical design easy. As their colour temperature characteristics are similar to daylight colour, exact colours (RGB) can be reproduced. They can also be used for both high bay and low bay applications.,Compared to High Pressure Mercury lamps, Metal Halide lamps offer greater efficiencies and, compared to high pressure sodium (SON) lamps, they have similar advantages, but have different output characteristics. A disadvantage of metal halide lamps, when compared to SON lamps, is that they have a shorter service life.
