Cermax® VQ and ME Xenon lamps from Excelitas are compact, metal-body Xenon short-arc lamps. With an internal precision cut reflector body with metal-to-sapphire and ceramic seal construction, Cermax® VQ and ME lamps are a safe and very compact alternative to conventional quartz bubble Xenon lamps and are the recommended Cermax® lamps for new Xenon illumination designs.
Utilizing an integrated elliptical F1.0 or F1.3 reflector, Cermax® Xenon lamps produce high intensity, focused light. The two reflector choices give the optical designer ample opportunity to tailor the light output to the specific application.
Due to the Xenon lamps’ broad color spectrum, the lamp is filtered to emit either visible, UV or IR light depending on application or usage.
Standard Cermax® Xenon elliptical reflector metal-body lamps have operating power ranges from 300 to 3,000 Watts.
Typical application areas are:
- Fiber optic illumination
- Analytical instrumentation
Excelitas takes pride in providing Xenon and solid state based lighting products and solutions that help to create a brighter, healthier and safer environment.
