Product Applications: RSS-50-150 Low Cost Rapid Smart Start series lamp re-ignitor is a modern electronic device that ensures rapid, reliable, eminently affordable "cold" start, and "hot" restart, of high-pressure sodium lamps in a range of outdoor area pole-and building-mounted commercial and light industrial applications. These include parking lots, building entryways, sidewalks, landscaped grounds and the like.
Product Description: RSS-50-150 Low Cost Rapid Smart Start series re-ignitor has a compact cylindrical shape. It is easy to handle and install by OEM assembly-line manufacturers, electrical contractors and maintenance people. RSS connects near the lamp socket, assuring reliable illumination of most 52/55-volt HPS lamps between 50 and 150 watts.
RSS minimizes the common problems of expected delays and hesitation, when starting "cold" HPS lamps, or restarting "hot" lamps after momentary power interruptions or variances in line-supply voltage. It allows an even level of illumination to be maintained at all times. This is particularly useful in and around large public buildings and grounds; especially those with substantial pedestrian and vehicular traffic, or with high-security concerns.
RSS-50-150 Low Cost Rapid Smart Start series consumes less than .3% of power during normal lamp operation and readily withstands moderate under-or over-voltages. It further prevents the equally troubling and obvious problems from constant recycling of "end-of-life" lamps.
Construction & Finishes: RSS-50-150 Low Cost Rapid Smart Start series re-ignitor is UL recognized and CSA certified, designed with a case temperature rating of 105° C. RSS is compatible with most standard HPS lamps of any brand from 50 to 150 watts. Operation is independent of "x3" ballast leads, and convenient for all remote-ballasting applications.
