Formed by some of the world's leading explorers, Halcyon is dedicated to establishing a link between active underwater explorers and the manufacture of precision diving equipment. Who better than leading explorers to design and test your life support equipment?...

High Intensity Discharge lamps produce a brilliant white light while drawing a fraction of the power of a halogen lamp. HID has quickly become the standard for exploration-grade lighting systems. Halcyon's Explorer, Proteus, and Apollo lights require very little attention beyond the care given to a halogen light. Although it produces 5% of its output when first ignited, the HID light requires a few seconds (usually 15-20) to produce full output. Also, if power to the lamp is lost or turned off (such as with an underwater pluggable cord), the light ballast must be allowed a brief period to reset before...

performance or cause premature failures. If necessary, clean the lamp by wiping with a lint-free towel. Any interaction with the bulb should be conducted very carefully. Bulbs break easily when handled improperly and While HID bulbs last considerably longer than halogen bulbs, you should be aware of several characteristics that indicate a bulb is approaching the end of its lifespan. Initial symptoms of end-of-life are characterized by low light output and/or intermittent starting. Visual signs include blackening at the ends of the arc tube and electrode tip deterioration. Note that HID bulbs contain...

Pull the cover straight off; a twisting action is more likely to break the glass tube. It is advisable to use a protective barrier such as a leather glove or heavy rag to protect your hand from a possible break in the glass lamp cover. Be espe- cially careful with the HID bulb as care needs to be used...
