PHILIPS DEFINITION: High pressure metal halide gas-discharge lamps having a special shaped are tube with iodide additives of sodium and scandium in the mercury discharge to Produce 100 lumens/watt. The special Shaped are tube is in a hard glass outer bulb with or without a phosphor coating. DESCRIPTION: * Basically metal halide lamps operate on the same principle as all gascischarge lamps. In view of the need for a light source with good color rendering and high luminous efficacy, the arc tube contains metal halide compounds Which have the effect of improving the olor appearance and increasing the luminous efficacy. ‘+ Further improvement in luminous effi- cacy is gained by the special shaping of the are tube. The lower end of the are tube is considerably smaller than the ‘other end Because of the shaped arc tube design, these lamps must be burned,only in a vertical base up position £ 1 The phosphor coating on the inside of the outer bulb contributes to a warmer color temperature, Because of the high starting voltage ce quirements, an ANSI specified M59 Ballas is reeuired. LAMP CHARACTERISTICS: * Very high luminous efficacy Good color rendering Reliable long lite * Good lumen maintenance APPLICATIONS: * Industrial Lighting # Commercial Lighting * Flood Lighting © Sport Lighting * Parking Lot Lighting = Automotive Sales Lot WARNING: “These lamps ean cause serious skin burn and eye inflammation trom shortwave ul travialet radiation if outar envelope of the lamp is broken or punetured. Do not Use where people will remain for more than a few minutes unless. adequate shielding or other safety precautions ate Used.
