Osram Showcases Sharxs HTI Lamp Series at Lightfair International 2005
Innovative Lamp Series Provides Exceptional Brightness and Operating Efficiencies for Special Retail Effects and Architainment Lighting Applications
New York, N.Y. (April 12-14, 2005) â€“ OSRAM will showcase an expanded line of SharXS HTI series of double-ended metal halide lamps at LIGHTFAIR 2005, that have been specially designed for special retail effects, architainment lighting applications and for use in fixtures having similar footprint designs. Available in 200, 400, 575, 700 and 1200-watt versions, OSRAM SharXS HTI lamps are setting new standards throughout the lighting industry.
Through the employment of eXtreme Seal (XS) technology, a standardization of overall lengths and a short arc, these lamps deliver exceptional brightness, operate at peak efficiency, and can withstand greater thermal stress than conventional lamp types. The key to XS technology is that it enables the lamps to successfully withstand thermal stress. The thermally sensitive area at the seal is covered by a protective layer that allows it to withstand temperatures up to 450°C, compared to conventional temperatures of 350°C.
Due to the standardization of SharXS HTI double-ended metal halide lamps, fixture manufacturers now need only to adapt the control gear optics and thermal allowances for the fixture to meet various applications. As a result of special pre-focus bases, the lamps can be quickly and precisely mounted in the lamp holders. In addition, the pre-aligned lamp base and SFc10-4 lamp holder allow these lamps to be properly installed, and consequently help in optimizing the lamp performance and output in the fixture.
With an arc gap of only 3 mm for the HTI 200 W/D3/70 and 400 W/D3/75, 4 mm for the 575 W/D4/75, 700 W/D4/60, 700 W/D4/75 and 7 mm for the 1200 W/D7/60, the lamps in the SharXS family achieve high luminance and exceptional efficiency. In conjunction with appropriately designed fixtures, the HTI lamps produce more light than comparable lamps of the same wattage. These HTI light sources render high color temperature ranges from 6000K to 7500K, and provide the ultimate brilliant, bright light solutions for demanding lighting applications.
Below is a technical specifications table that outlines how the SharXS HTI double- ended discharge lamp series can meet a variety of special retail effects and architainment lighting applications. For additional information on SharXS HTI lamps please visit www.SharXS.com.
