XeVision®HID Media Release new products and company implementation - green wave 112409
XeVision way down the 'Green Wave' path
XeVision™ began implementing PB-free technology back in 2006, in conjunction with selecting only RoHS compliant components for all our HID lighting systems, such as the XeStrike™ ballasts, XePulse II™ HID pulsing module, and XeSparQ™ D2 HID bulb igniter/adapter.
Now, XeVision™ has added to its extensive line of proprietary electronic HID ballasts the first 35 watt D-series XeStrike™ ballast for driving Philips XenEcoStart™ Mercury-free (Hg-free) D3S and D4S HID bulbs. The D3S bulb 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 - XV6D - features an SAE type fast start-up bulb ignition. Apart from the 'green' design, the XV6D is built to DO160-E standards as are all the D-series XeStrike™ ballasts. The XV6D is suitable for replacement of current HID systems, if ‘green compliance' is demanded. This new ballast is intended for use in aviation (HID landing and taxi lights), military, and industrial applications. See specifications here. OEM welcome!
