The new XePulse™ 2 module is not a direct replacement for the original XePulse™ 1 module, but rather exceeds its capabilities and features, and is completely redesigned with a much smaller footprint. The primary new XePulse™ 2 upgrade feature is XeVision's new asymmetric time modulation (ATM) technology, developed from the patented XePulse™ technology, for enhanced recognition (helps reduce bird strike occurrences) and prolonged bulb life. The two channels are each capable of driving an almost unlimited number (up to 250) of HID XeStrike™ ballasts. Its size is about a third of the original XePulse™ 1 module.
The new green ballast XV6D is a slim-line 35 watt D-series XeStrike™ ballast for driving Philips XenEcoStart™ Mercury-free (Hg-free) D3S and D4S HID bulbs. The D3S corresponds to the common D1S bulb with the same footprint, and so does the D4S with the standard D2S. Hg-free bulbs have very different and challenging electrical requirements for the ballast design. XeVision’s first production of the green slim-line ballast features an SAE type fast start-up bulb ignition.
