XeStrike™ D-series digital ballasts
Digital XeStrike™ ballasts features and design

* Our digital ballasts are designed based on planar transformer technology and digital input power control.

* Built to RTCA/DO-160E standards with select ballast certified to RTCA/DO-160E

* Aluminum case with Silicon seal or Silicon O-ring, fully dust & waterproof designed to IP 67.

* Very low EMI/RFI due to digital design and superior shielding. Meets or exceeds RTCA/DO-160E standards.

* Uses resonant zero voltage switching technology, and our CR technology (Continuous Restrike technology).

* VPM: Variable Power Mode for dual power ballast models, also referred as DPM Dual Power Mode.

* SPM: Single Power Mode for single power wattage ballast models.

XV1D

Drives D1S bulb as well as D2S bulb with our external ignitor and our XeSparQ D2/D1 adapter (please call).

XeStrike ballast XV1D

XV1D

The XV1D 35 watt has no heat sink (optional on request). Both XV1D 50 watt and 75 watt come with the heat sink on top of the housing and an internal thermally conducting bridge.

The heat sink adds 10 mm to the overall height of the 35 watt XV1D.

Different wattages require different heat sink fin sizes for best convective cooling. Therefore the height is different, see table to the right

VPM (DPM) explained:
Variable power mode means that two output power or dual power modes (DPM) settings can be variably selected (generally 50 watt and 35 watt for dimming purposes to conserve battery power or for two preset brightnesses. With our XePulse™ 2 DPM can be used to wig-wag by dimming instead of on-off.

XV6D - The Green Ballast

XeVision has finalized the first 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. It is suitable for replacement of current HID systems, if ‘green’ compliance is necessary. This new ballast is intended for use in aviation (HID landing and taxi lights), military, and industrial applications.

OEM welcome.

Key features:
- digital XeStrike™ D-series XV8C ballast
- 35 watt
- 12 VDC or 24 VDC
- water and dust proof, to IP67
- Fast, SAE-type start-up

XeVision™ ballast output cable

Teflon® cable description

Our proprietary double shielded cables are used for slected XeVision HID Xenon lighting systems. We produce the cables in custom length of 1, 2, 4, and 6 feet.

The shielded Teflon® cables are used between the ballast and the lamp and are pre-assembled with shielded connectors and are a major factor to suppress RMI/EMI.

On both ends there is a MQS connector which is shielded in contact with the ballast and the lamp, a major factor to suppress RMI/EMI.
