Lamp, Housing & Power Supply

Lamp, Housing, & Power Supply

Most RSM systems are fitted with 75-watt xenon arc lamps in an elliptical reflective housing. Other light sources are 150-watt deuterium and xenon, pulse lamps, lasers, etc. Given the high scan speed of the RSM, the brightest cost-justifiable illumination is recommended. The usual lamp power supply is a 150-watt model fitted with the lamp starter, useful for starting 75- or 150-watt lamps.
