EmArc lighting technology is the culmination of a dedicated effort to bring together the inherent advantages of a number of gas discharge sources into a single light source. The technology equates to a critical blending of rare gas and metal additives to derive, in a single source, many of the key properties and benefits of stand alone Xenon, Metal Halide and Mercury lamps.
EmArc light sources are a series of highly efficient, Enhanced Metal Arc, DC gas discharge lamps designed for use in medical, scientific, industrial and entertainment settings. EmArc lamps are a progressive step ahead in lighting technology possessing features that offer advantages to an array of uses for imaging, fiber optic and other important optical applications.
EmArc lamps have geometric designs which enable alignment in dichroic visible light or UV specific coated reflectors facilitating use in numerous applications like lighting for minimally invasive surgery, curing of light sensitive resins and adhesives and, dental whitening procedures. EmArc versatility enables its use in a number of entertainment applications including searchlights, followspots, special effects and automated fixtures.
EmArc lamps are comparable to Metal Halide sources in luminous efficacy but with 2 to 5 times the life. A correlated color temperature like that of Xenon at 6000K, with very small arc gap sizes, but with 2 times the luminous effi cacy of Xenon lamps. EmArc technology differentiates itself as a new family of discharge lamps.
The construction of EmArc® arc tubes, electrodes and precise filling technique provide the environment for the tightly confined plasma arc discharge. EmArc light output over time exceeds that of typical DC Xenon and AC short-arc Metal Halide lamps.
