Cermax PE175BFA

175w Parabolic Ceramic Xenon Lamp

Cermax PE175BFA Xenon Short Arc Lamp

The Cermax® Xenon lamp, Model PE175BFA, has an integrated parabolic reflector, enabling high-intensity, focused output of visible and infrared radiation. With their internal reflector and rugged ceramic body construction, Cermax® Xenon lamps are the safest and most compact alternative to conventional quartz xenon lamps. This makes them ideal for applications that require a high degree of illumination control. Current-regulated or power-regulated power supplies with output ripples of less than 5% are recommended. Single-shot ignition pulses are advised because radio frequency starters may damage the lamp’s internal reflector.
