What are sulphur plasma lamps?

High speed Sulphur Plasma Ignition Film. Filmed using an OLYMPUS I-SPEED 3 CAMERA: newbielink:http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=XE8JJfRTcds [nonactive]


Sulphur Plasma Lights are the new revolutionary light source with the highest effectivity and a true full spectrum similar to that of sunlight.

We are now able to produce technical lighting solutions that would have been unimaginable just a short time ago.

The following Spectral Power Distribution (SPD) charts, show 3 different lamp outputs available now from ESP Systems, the lamps are manufactured to the highest quality in Germany and can be powered by any 400W to 1400W Plasma Lighting System.

The Sulphur Plasma Lamp is remarkable in several respects:
•Sulphur bulbs are twice as efficient as other sources of high quality white light.
•They produce almost no ultraviolet light and very little infrared; this makes them easier to use with plastic fixtures or fibres.
•The full-spectrum light that is produced is extremely good for visual acuity and feels much like sunlight.
•The bulb is very simple, a hollow quartz sphere with sulphur and argon gas, so it is environmentally benign and does not degrade in use.
•The light source is very bright so the light can be efficiently distributed over large spaces.
•The light output and colour does not degrade over time, and it is fully dimmable down to 30%.

Would you by any chance be shamelessly self promoting your products and website ?

Perhaps you would like the opportunity to rewrite your posts so that is does not appear to be like blatant advertising !

Doug,

This is interesting but I have hidden the link to your company in Surry. No advertising allowed, sorry.

From what I have read in Wikipedia, the problems with Sulphur plasma (and this is not to rubbish it), makes it not particularly suitable for domestic use, but very useful for lighting large outdoor areas (they don't yet have anything scaled down to domestic applications).

Ofcourse, it also has to be born in mind that we seem to have a new revolutionary light source every couple of years.  All of this is valid, since the technological advances are real; but certainly implies we should be cautious about assuming that any one technology is the answer we are looking for.

"Sulphur Plasma Lights are the new revolutionary light source "
According to wiki they were around in 1990. Hardly new by today's standards.
