XeSparQ™2 D2 to D1 HID bulb conversion system
The XeSparQ™2 module or converter is a socket adapter containing the igniter for HID Xenon D2 (D2S or D2R) in a housing 100% identical to a D1 bulb socket footprint. Even its weight is within two grams the same of the original igniter.
Now it is possible to use any D2 bulb on the market in a D1 system. This includes any special D2 bulb, which has never been designed for a D1 system, such as UV bulbs for R&D applications and the super small MR-16 HID bulb.
The XeSparQ™2 is a cost effective way for using D2 bulbs with no disadvantage at all. On the contrary, this means much less EMI/RFI since there is no high voltage cable between the igniter and the bulb.
The conversion is reversible, so the XeSparQ™2 socket can be used repeatedly. To convert a D2 to our XeSparQ™2 D1 bulb, simply insert the D2 into the XeSparQ™2 socket, press down, turn to the left until it locks - done! See picture above.
For installation:Press the bulb down and twist to the LEFT
For removing the bulb, press down and twist to the RIGHT.
IMPORTANT: Do Not touch the glass capsule of the bulb!
The integration of the igniter into the bulb base saves the connector and cable and offers a more compact ballast design, like our digita XeStrike™2 ballasts. The XeSparQ™2 module has standard 4 pin MQS connector mounted on the side of the module identical to the D1S igniter design.
Because of the deletion of the high voltage cable, connector, and high voltage parts in the ballast with better control of the EMI, the XeSparQ™2 D1 system offers a reduction of the system cost. Additionally, practically no limitation to the distance between the ballast and the XeSparQ™2 D1 system.
As for our D1 HID Xenon lighting systems in Aerospace or Industry, the same technical standards apply for the XeSparQ D2 - D1 lighting systems. Actually, all of our line of XeStrike ballasts and DC ballast can be used, in fact is recommended.
