XeVision® way along the 'green path'.

XeVision® is 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™ 2 HID pulsing module, and XeSparQ™ D2 HID bulb igniter/adapter. XeVision® is offering the first 35 watt D-series XeStrike™ ballast for driving Philips XenEcoStart™ Mercury-free (Hg-free) D3S and D4S HID bulbs. Hg-free bulbs have very different and challenging electrical requirements for the ballast design. XeVision’s first slim-line ballast features an SAE type fast start-up bulb ignition suitable for any replacement of HID systems, if 'green' compliance is necessary. This new ballast is for aviation, military, and industrial applications. OEM welcome!
Green HID ballast specifications.

MIL-STD 461E and MIL-STD 810E

test procedures were performed on our 50 W HID system XV-36-SL with XV4D digital ballast, integrated in a military searchlight by our customer, a European Defense & Aerospace company. The official test reports demonstrate that our HID lighting system passed these extremely demanding standards, such as high and low temperatures, vibration, high altitude, and EMC. Note that all of our HID D1S systems with our XeStrike™ digital ballasts also comply with RTCA/DO-160E standards.

Light a Candle ..

Kerry McIntyre of KNR, Inc., Evanston, WY 82930, has written an enlightening article comparing incandescent, LED, and HID landing and taxi lights. Please download ' Light a Candle ..' published in MooneyPilots.com in 2011. A lot has happened though since that time, but many observations and statements are still valid.
