STATURION® MH 2000 W E40 lamp
Metal halide lamps have been used since the mid-1960s, are still widely used today and belong to the group of high-pressure discharge lamps. Their continuing high popularity is due in particular to their excellent photometric performance: They offer an extremely high luminous flux of up to 230,000 lm, a very economical luminous efficacy of up to 115 lm/Watt and an excellent colour rendering index (Ra / CRI) of up to 90 compared with other discharge lamps. All this makes them a perfect alternative to LED lighting for sports facilities, for example, where the floodlighting system has shorter switch-on times or where high-quality lamp replacement is required for existing systems.
For conformity with Regulations (EC) No 245/2009, (EU) No 347/2010 and (EU) No 2015/1428:
Since the introduction of LED solutions, there have been repeated incorrect statements that all metal halide lamps (HIT lamps for short), also known as HQI, HRI or HPI lamps, are banned by the EU under Regulation (EC) 245/2009. This statement is incorrect and does not correspond to the current European legislation: On the one hand, it is confused with the general ban on mercury vapour lamps, better known as HQL lamps. On the other hand, the directive only refers to lamps that do not comply with certain requirements, e.g. in terms of energy efficiency.
BLV STATURION® metal halide lamps, which are still manufactured today at the company’s headquarters in Germany, are not affected by either the current regulation or the new regulation (EU) 2019/2020, which will replace the current one with effect from 01 September 2021. Therefore they may continue to be manufactured, sold and used in the European Economic Area.
