Pulse Start Metal Halide 

      • Higher Efficacy - Lamp envelope design follows the curve of the arc stream preventing uneven temperatures in the arc tube surface. This significantly improves thermal performance as it allows more halides to be pulled into the arc and emit more light.
      • Better Color Uniformity - Color variations occur in other HID light sources due to arc tube temperature differences and poor power regulation.
      • Faster Warm Up - High voltage pulse ignition. Eliminates the starter electrode, bi-metal switch and resistor of standard probe start lamps. It also provides quicker breakdown of gases; so starting (cold or hot) is faster.
      • Improved Lumen Maintenance - Lumen output does not decay as rapidly over the lamp life as with traditional metal halide. Mean lumens improve dramatically, up to 50% higher with matched ballasts and lamp systems.
      • Longer Life - Increase of 50% lamp life over the probe start model.

Electronic HID

      • Microprocessor-controlled for Digital Precision and Reliability - Extends lamp life; greater efficiency and efficacy.
      • Micro-Start Digitally Controlled Ignition - Lumen consistency; color consistency; virtually eliminates lamp electrodes and "wall blackening"; longer lamp life.
      • Control and Communication - Extends energy saving capabilities, monitoring, control, reduces maintenance costs.
      • Full Range Dimming (optional) - Significant energy savings.
      • Automatic Scheduling - Automatic control dimming, on/off functions per lamp.
      • Sodium Lamp Hot Re-strike - Instant relighting after power outages.
      • Automatic Scheduling - Automatic control dimming, on/off functions per lamp.
      • Sodium Lamp Hot Re-strike - Instant relighting after power outages.


      • No Electrodes or Filament to be Damaged - Long performance life up to 100,000 hours, lasting up to 100 times as long compared to
        incandescent lamps. High luminous maintenance rated at 95% after 2000 hours and 85% after 6000 hours.
      • Power Factor Up To .99 - Very high system efficiency-increase by 50% and 20% more than magnetic ballasts and conventional electronic ballasts respectively, resulting in lower energy bills.
      • Electromagnetic Induction Lighting - Low heat output. Reduces HVAC (air-conditioning) costs in climate-controlled areas.
      • Reliable Ignition - Even to -40 Degrees C. Great for very low temperature regions and applications.
      • CRI 80 (Ra) Working Frequency 210KHz - Allows color to be perceived correctly. Range of color temperatures and wavelengths. No flicker.

Compact Fluorescent

      • Same Light Output - Regardless of Burning Position Luminous flux is the same whether base up or base down.
      • Up To 80% Energy Savings - 42-watt T 4 initial lumens 3200 mean lumens 2690; 150-watt A21 initial lumens 2850
      • Burns Up To 12X. Longer - Than Most Standard Incandescent Lamps 150 watt A21 rated at 750 hours; 42 watt T 4 rated 12000 hours
      • High Color Rendering Index - Ra=82 Color that we perceive is correct.
      • Available in Different Color Temperatures - Color can be specified from 3000K through 6000K
      • May be Used with Dimmable Electronic Ballasts - Solid state Electronic ballasts from Advance, Universal or Lutron.
      • End of Life Protection - A small portion of chemical material is placed near the cathode, and in case of critical overheat, the evaporating gas quenches the arc.


      • Long Life - Properly matched lamps and ballasts get more than twice the life of current systems. T-12 should be looked at and retrofitted to T8 wherever possible.
      • Energy Savings - High performance T8 combined with electronic ballasts can realize up to a 45% reduction in energy consumed.
      • Fewer Lamps per Fixture The 30-watt T8 lamp provides comparable light output to standard T8 and extends life up to 20%. The 28-watt T8 lamp provides a 20% extension of life over the 30-watt unit and realizes an additional energy saving of 6%. High Lumen F32T8/XL/HL provides a definite advantage for fewer lamps per fixture.
      • Efficient Electronic Ballasts per fixture - High Efficiency 90% Ballast consumes 10% of total system power and meets ballast efficacy factor requirements for the NEMA Premium and CEE programs.
      • Continuous Cathode Cutout - High efficiency programmed start ballasts cut unneeded power to lamp filaments after starting and operates at instant start high efficiency levels.
      • Lamp Life Programmed Start - extends lamp life and warranty Current Crest Factor, 1.41 or less is the optimal level to extend lamp life particularly in long burn cycles. Parallel Lamp Operation, If one lamp fails the others stay lit extending group relamping by 15% compared to series parallel ballasts.
      • Performance - Multi-Volt, simplifies installation 108V-305V. Anti-Striation Control, Eliminates striating or spiraling lamps.
      • Fast Starting Time - Fast starting lamps provide needed convenience (100-700ms) dependent on the applied product.
