Discharge lamps: offer longer life and higher efficiency

They are among the most profitable light sources

Discharge lamps are a family of artificial light sources that generate light by sending an electrical discharge through an ionised gas or vapour. Depending on the gas filling, visible light is being  emitted directly or lamps convert the ultraviolet radiation to visible light with a fluorescent coating on the inside of the lamp's glass surface.

Lamps are divided into families as follows:

Low pressure discharge lamps:
Low pressure discharge lamps emit light by means of relatively low working pressure. The fluorescent lamp is one of the low pressure discharge lamps.

High pressure discharge lamps:

The so-called HID lamps produce a vast current density so these lamps do not have to pre-heat. They generate their total luminosity directly after the ignition. To the family of high pressure discharge lamps you can also find sodium vapour lamps and metal halide lamps. link zur Stadionbeleuchtung

Short Arc Lamps:

Short arc lamps produce a bright wide light that closely mimics daylight and natural sunlight. Xenon or Hot Spot lamps are the most common lamps that are most known from cinemas or in cars. Discharge lamps impress with a long life expectancy, less heat emission und great luminance. They are the stars when it comes to efficiency.

Therefore the innovative Philips MASTERColour Elite Evolution requires only one lamp replacement during the shop circle. This estimation bases on 4,200 working hours / year with a shop circle of 8 years. This star made by Philips produces more light with less watt and less energy consumption. Furthermore, the Elite Evolution provides a clean beam without distortion.
