PULSE START LAMP TECHNOLOGY
Uni-Form pulse start lamps provide superior performance compared
to standard probe start metal halide lamps. The specific benefits are higher
efficacy, better color uniformity, faster warm-up, improved lumen
maintenance and longer life. It all takes place in Ventures
revolutionary formed-body arc tube.
One key to superior
lamp performance is heat management. In
standard probe start arc tubes, uneven
heating prevents optimum arc enhancement. Venture created an exclusive, tipless formed-body arc tube, sculpted to follow the actual curve
of the arc stream. The shape creates a more uniform temperature
profile. Higher temperatures draw more halides into the stream,
resulting in more light generated. Our unique sculpting process
also molds each arc tube for improved color uniformity.
shape of our formed-body quartz arc tube follows the actual curve
of the arc stream, preventing uneven temperatures in the arc tube
surface. This significantly improves thermal performance allowing
more halides to be pulled into the arc and emit more light.
pinch fins on standard probe start metal halide arc tubes radiate heat. Replacing
them reduces the quartz mass in the arc tube and helps in producing
a more uniform thermal profile which results in greater lamp efficacy.
tip on standard probe start arc tubes creates a cold spot which degrades
arc performance. Our exclusive tipless design ensures a totally
uniform surface to the arc tube shape, improving efficacy and color
pulse ignitor starting eliminates the starter electrode, bi-metal
switch and resistor of standard probe start lamps. It also provides
quicker breakdown of gases; so starting (cold and hot) is faster.
design and pulse ignition support a higher fill gas level that helps
to reduce wall blackening caused by tungsten sputtering from the
electrodes at each start.
Arc Tube Mount
nearly unbreakable, patented weldless construction is stronger than
traditional welded mounts.
Single Voltage Hybrid and HX Ballasts
The lower current crest factor in the electrical output of
our ballasts improves lamp lumen maintenance. Ballast energy losses
are reduced by as much as 50% compared to standard CWA ballasts.
Ventures pulse start system technology, actualized in
lamps and Single Voltage Hybrid and HX ballasts, represents advancement as important
as the invention of the metal halide lamp. Every change in our arc
tube design, lamp construction and ballast enhances overall system
performance. This metal halide focus allows us to offer a vast array
of integrated packages, providing optimum lighting efficacy and
quality for virtually any application.
pulse start system lumen output does not decay as rapidly over life
as standard probe start metal halide. Mean lumens improve dramatically, up
to 50% higher, with our lamps operating on our
Single Voltage Hybrid and HX low current
crest factor ballasts.
Our Uni-Form pulse start system
offers up to 50% longer lamp life along with improved lumen maintenance.
This directly benefits end-users by reducing lifetime operating
color variations occur due to arc tube temperature differences and
poor power regulation. Venture minimizes variation through consistent
thermal characteristics in every arc tube and better power control
from our ballasts.
technology offers more reliable starting at extreme temperatures,
down to -40°C
(-40°F). Its perfect for winter weather
or warehouse freezer conditions.
Our patented weldless arc tube mount precisely centers the arc.
It outlasts welded mounts, staying more consistently on spec.
Lamp Power Control
The well regulated output power of our ballasts improves color uniformity
and lumen maintenance.
Ventures Single Voltage Hybrid and HX
ballasts run at least 25% quieter than
comparable CWA ballasts due to non-saturation of the core.
Single Voltage Hybrid Ballasts For Improved Performance
The Venture® Single Voltage Hybrid family sets the Gold Standard in ballast
performance with an optimized current wave form. To maximize your
pulse start metal halide system, specify power
saving 277V Hybrid ballasts.
LINE IS MORE LIGHT FOR LESS ENERGY.
Uni-Form® pulse start technology will exceed your expectations.
More light for less energy makes Uni-Form pulse start the most logical
lighting choice for designers and corporate energy managers seeking
to drastically cut power bills. Compared to standard metal halide,
Ventures revolutionary system offers up to 50% improvement
in system mean lumens per watt. In practical applications, the higher
efficiency translates into a savings of more than 100 watts per luminaire! And that savings comes while still producing the same,
or more, high quality light.
