Ushio MHR -100D Metal Halide Reflector Bulb
Ushio MHR -100D Metal Halide Reflector
Reflector for Fiber-Optic Applications
The MHR series was specifically designed for fiber optic and
light pipe applications. These lamps are predominantly used in
applications with a fiber diameter of more than 8mm at the input and
offers an unproblematic operation with standard ballasts and thus
lowers cost applications. The MHR series features an ellipsoidal
reflector coated with a special dichroic coating which transmits
most of the lamp’s heat radiation toward the rear.
Specifications include a 6.5mm arc gap, total luminous efficacy
of 85 lumens per watt and useful lamp life of up to 6000 hours.
The MHR series is an economical solution to high development
and maintenance costs associated with using lamps developed for
applications other than fiber optics.
FEATURES & BENEFITS:
MHR-100D uses M90 Ballast or Electronic Equivalent, MHR150N Uses M81 Ballast and MHR-250N Uses M80 Ballast
• Cold Mirror Reflector – Concise Front End
• Compact Design
• Aligned to a Fiber During Manufacturing
• Standardized AMP Connector
The optimal focal distance between the lamp and the fiber depends
on the diameter of the fiber. A rough calculation of the optimal
distance between lamp and fixture can be done by the following formula:
100/150W Fd = 52mm – D * 0.77
250W Fd = 64mm – D * 0.77
Fd(mm): Optimal distance betweeen fiber and lamp
D(mm): Diameter of the fiber bundle
UV and IR radiation from the lamp may cause damage to synthetic fibers.
Therefore, reflective or absorbing filters are recommended for use with
