The PE500DF and PE500DUV Cermax®
lamps have an integrated parabolic reflector,
enabling high intensity, focused output of
ultraviolet, visible, and infrared radiation.
With their internal reflector and rugged
ceramic body construction, Cermax® lamps
are the safest and most compact alternative
to conventional quartz xenon lamps. This
makes them ideal for applications that
require a high degree of illumination control.
Current-regulated or power-regulated power
supplies with output ripples of less than 5%
are recommended. Single shot ignition
