- Single-ended lamps similar to HTI lamps
- Outer bulb for ease of handling
Because of their high luminance, UV radiation and high internal pressure during operation, HSR lamps may only be operated in enclosed lamp casings specially constructed for the purpose. Appropriate filters must ensure that UV radiation is reduced to an acceptable level. Mercury is released if the lamp breaks. Special safety precautions must be taken. Information on safety and handling is available on request or can be found in the leaflet included with the lamp or in the operating instructions.
HSR lamps are not capable of hot restarts.
