The ARC Keeper offers arc-saving technology for HID metal halide systems. Metal halides are extremely sensitive to even minor line disturbances. A disturbance of four milliseconds or longer can cause problems for the lamp. The ARC Keeper detects theses line disturbances and then assumes control of the lamp arc all within approximately two milliseconds, preventing arc extinction and the need for restrike. The ARC Keeper supplies power to the lamp, thereby supporting the arc, for up to two minutes or until normal or backup power is in place, whichever comes first.
