Further improvement in luminous elficacy is gained by the special shaping of the ec tube. The lower end of the a tubes Considerably smaller than the other end Because of the shaped arc tube design, these lamps must be burned only in a vertical base up position +t 15°. = The phosphor coating on the inside of the outer bulb contributes to.a warmer color temperature. = Because of the high starting voltage requirements, an ANS! specified MBS ballast is required Philips Lighting MS400/BU and MS400/C/BU Lamps Ballast M59 metal halide ballasts are designed to meet the starting and operating requirements of these lamps throughout life, Lamp Characteristics = Very high luminous efficacy Good color rendering Reliable long lite = Good lumen maintenance Applications + Industrial Lighting = Commercial Lighting ~ Flood Lighting ~ Sport Lighting + Parking Lot Lighting - Automotive Sales Lot Warning “These lamos can cause serious skin burn and eye inflammation from shortwave ultraviolet radiation if outer envelope of the lamp is broken or punctured.
