IREM offers a complete range of power supplies for halide lamp extending from 200W up to 18KW.

Below a detailed presentation of an example of ballast for metal halide lamp produced by IREM.

ballast for metal halide lamp
  1. DOUBLE INSULATION CONTROL
    avoiding the operator to touch the metal frame.
  2. INPUT CABLE SPACE
    suitable to contain the powering cord.
  3. EARTH TEST
    permits to check the earth connection necessary to avoid the risk of high voltage, high frequency electric shock at the ignition when particular environmental conditions compromise the system insulation.
  4. HANDLE
    for an easy transportation and handling.
  5. STAINLESS STEEL HOUSING
    grants high mechanical sturdiness and excellent corrosion resistance.
  6. SHOCK ABSORBER SYSTEM
    All internal components are insulated from the chassis by a shock absorber system eliminating vibrations and granting a quiet operation.ker.
  7. WHEELS
    allowing to carry the unit easily.
  8. OPENABLE FRONT PANEL
    allowing an easy access to the internal components, in case of maintenance operation.
  9. AIR SLOTS
    a particular system of air slots grants a good cooling of the internal components, ensuring IP32 protection degree.
  10. RUBBER FEET
  11. MAIN CIRCUIT BREAKER
    the unit is protected by a bipolar main circuit breaker.
  12. OUTPUT CONNECTOR
    for an easy and reliable connection to the luminaire.
