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.
