Zirius Hot Restrike Igniters
Zirius Hot restrike igniters now even more convenient Zirius 2000 AS 2L
Now a new generation of Zirius hot restrike igniters has been brought to market. The tried-and-trusted technology has been developed further in several important areas.
The hot ignition of high pressure discharge lamps, ensuring instant re-ignition, has been part of the core expertise of BAG electronics for years, and now a new generation of ZIRIUS hot restrike igniters has been brought to market. The tried-and-trusted technology has been developed further in several important areas.
The new Zirius 2000 AS 2L now has only two mains connection terminals for example. This new 2-wire technology enables error-free wiring and simpler, more rapid installation. Optimised cable routing that forces spacial separation of cabling in the housing additionally prevents voltage flashover to the lamp connection terminals. Maximum ignition voltage was reduced to 40 kV, as the innovative ignition technology of the ZIRIUS series always guarantees soft lamp starts even with lower ignition voltages. For customers this means less isolation effort within the luminaire.
A further advantage of the new Zirius 2000 AS 2L is its highly efficient circuit design with significantly less power loss, thus saving energy and reducing self-heating. Because the device is designed for a mains voltage range of 230 to 480 V, it can be universally used across the world. And not forgetting the already familiar performance features of the Zirius hot restrike igniters such as fully electronic, intelligent ignition management via micro-controller with automatic adaptation of ignition parameters to lamp types and temperatures, extended lamp service life via flicker-free instant ignition and reliable restarting, even with various mains voltages.
The hot restrike igniters from BAG are becoming increasingly popular, as high pressure discharge lamps have proven to be the most economic lamp types for the illumination of large surface areas. Typical applications are sports arenas, military security zones, trade fair halls and industrial facilities for example. With the Zirius product series, BAG electronics has been offering electronic hot re-ignition devices for years that always guarantee a protective soft start. The assortment is rounded off with ballasts and special lampholders for high pressure discharge lamps.
