Technical Data
 
Our sports lighting products use a common clear metal halide HID lamp that features long lamp life and can withstand temperature extremes without significant loss of light output. It does require time to start up and restrike. Kelvin temperature is from 3,000 to 4,100K (a white to blue white color). Lamp / ballast system performance may vary per manufacturer. Certain metal halide lamps should be enclosed. Consult factory for details.
