Thread: MSD Platinum 5R

    Default MSD Platinum 5R

    Hi All,

    I am thinking to use a philips lamp for a light source project that uses liquid light guides in a tabletop setting. The lamp I choose is MSD Platinum 5R. However it has not been possible to find a detailed datasheet of this product. I could find is that this product is a gas discharge short arc lamp but I would be very happy if someone can advise me if it is a Mercury-Metal Halide lamp or another technology since I need to use a mercury lamp per project requirements.

    Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    Best Regards

    These lamps are called UHP lamps (Ultra High Performance). It's a high pressure, short arc mercury lamp. To run these properly, you need the electronic ballast that is designed for that specific lamp. To learn more about the technology, I recommend this document: http://jahonen.kapsi.fi/Electronics/Stuff/UHP_Lamp.pdf
