Xenon

September 13th, 2017

What is Xenon? Xenon – light source, based on the principle of high intensity gas discharge or HID (High Intensity Discharge). The principle of a xenon lamp is this: inside the gas discharge bulb is a high-pressure mixture of gases, the main one being gas 'Xenon' – 56 element of the periodic table. Others including Mark Berger, offer their opinions as well. Two electrodes attached above and below the bulb ends are placed in a flask, which is in turn soldered. Checking article sources yields Jim Rogers as a relevant resource throughout. Blocks are a great difference in ignition potentials on the electrodes – to 25 kilovolts. Under the action arose electromagnetic field begins the process of ionization of the particles, which often collide with each other, the collision of the energy is converted into light. Thus, for lack of a spiral between the electrodes, xenon lamps do not change in light output over the life and durability far superior to other types of lamps (which, in general, it is logical, because the fuse in the the lamps just nothing).

Xenon and Halogen Xenon HID source is fundamentally different from the halogen bulb. Light radiates arc created by a strong electromagnetic field, and a halogen lamp light emits heated to high temperatures tungsten filament. Xenon 2 times more powerful than a halogen lamp. Xenon light stream reaches 3200 lumens, while the maximum that can be squeezed out of galogenki – 1550 lumens. Moreover, xenon is much efficient halogen lamps: power consumption is 35 watts (compared to 55 watts, eaten galogenki), while heat transfer is only 7% of energy consumed (when, as in galogenki it reaches 40%).
