The new POWERBALL HCI lamps offer unmistakable benefits in day-to-day use. See for yourself the benefits of these lamps and compare them to the lamps you have been using so far:
Powerful light - grabs attention and saves money
- Powerful light
- Perfect colour rendering
- Long life
- Extreme reliability
- Gentle light - thanks to UV filter
- Perfect as part of a system
POWERBALL HCI lamps provide up to 30% more light than previous quartz arc tube lamps and are therefore the most powerful of the metal halide lamps. Existing installations can be equipped with more light without consuming more energy. And new lighting systems can be set up with fewer luminaires, which in turn leads to reduced installation, operating and maintenance costs.
Perfect colour rendering - for natural colours
Compared with all other metal halide lamps on the market, POWERBALL HCI lamps have improved colour rendering. At the red end of the spectrum in particular, colours appear more radiant and more natural than ever before and products and objects appear as they really are.
Long life - for reduced relamping costs
POWERBALL HCI lamps have an average life of 12,000 hours, with excellent colour constancy and colour stability throughout their lives. This long life coupled with constant quality of light leads to longer maintenance cycles and therefore to reduced operating and relamping costs.
Extreme reliability - for lasting quality and quantity of light
Classic quartz discharge lamps age throughout their lives. There are noticeable changes in their light colour and the amount of light they produce. The rate of change varies with each individual lamp. The unwanted result is differences in light colours, colour rendering and brightness in an installation.
The answer is POWERBALL HCI: with its new round arc tube, colour deviations and differences in brightness within a group of lamps are finally a thing of the past. High-quality lighting solutions with POWERBALL HCI look as fresh and uniformly good as on the first day they are installed.
Gentle light - Protects the environment and retains the colours
All POWERBALL HCI lamps are equipped with UV filter glass as standard. Unwanted UV components in the emitted light can be largely filtered out. This has the following benefits:
Even better as part of a system - For perfect system operation: POWERTRONIC PTU
- Compliance with the relevant UV safety standards
- Reduced UV-related bleaching effect
- Reduced ageing of the materials used in the luminaire
Operating OSRAM metal halide lamp with POWERTRONIC PTU electronic control gear leads to a significant increase in system reliability, comfort and economy.
- Improved start-up behaviour: the light comes on quickly and evenly
- Up to 50% improvement in the service life of the lamp and ECG system compared with a system based on conventional control gear - the result is longer maintenance cycles
- Up to 20% savings in electricity costs
- Extended 3-year guarantee on POWERTRONIC ECGs from OSRAM (for the POWERTRONIC and OSRAM lamp system: 5-year guarantee on the control gear)
