1. Lamp must not be operated with window facing upwards within 45° of vertical.
2. Seal temperature must not exceed 150 °C.
3. Current/power regulated power supplies are recommended.
4. Lamp must be operated within recommended current and power range. Over pow-
ering may lead to arc instability, hard starting and premature aging.
5. Hot mirror assembly is available for IR filtering.
6. Cermax lamps are safer to handle, compared to their non-compact xenon arc lamp equivalents. However, caution must be practised when operating these lamps due to high pressure, high voltage, high temperatures of up to 200 °C and their IR and UV radiation, which can cause skin burns and eye damage. Consult hazard sheet included with each lamp shipment.
