Metal halide lamps
DISCOVER THE MAIN FEATURES OF METAL HALIDE LAMPS
Metal halide lamps create high-quality atmospheres as they combine a good colour rendering capacity with the possibility of selecting the most appropriate colour temperature. For this reason they are selected in applications where these aspects are critical, such as places where television broadcasts will take place, shop windows in main thoroughfares or shops displaying quality products, squares and avenues in large cities, industries which require good colour rendering, etc.
They are available in a full power range from 35 to 2,000 W.
Their operation requires auxiliary equipment for switching on and stabilising the discharge. Around 10 minutes must elapse from the moment they are switched on for these lamps to reach the nominal conditions in terms of intensity, luminosity, shade, etc.; if the supply is switched off, hot restart requires at least 15 minutes.
These lamps project very focused light and can therefore cause glare. To prevent this, they are almost always housed in projectors to reduce luminance.
Iberdrola offers its customers the possibility of analysing their specific needs and proposing the most suitable solution for street lighting, business premises lighting or buildings (indoors or outdoors).
