HID Restrike and Auxiliary Lighting Controllers

TRP HID Restrike & Auxiliary Lighting ControllersQUARTZ RESTRIKE CONTROLLERS

Quartz Restrike Controllers automatically light a standby lamp when the main HID lamp is extinguished. These are current sensing devices. Compact and simple to wire.


Rapid Smart Start lamp reignitor is designed to cold start and rapidly restart hot HPS lamps after momentary power interruptions or drops in supply voltage.
