Complete range of metal halide Long Life lamps from Aura Light

The Swedish lighting company Aura Light now offers an extended range of metal halide lamps. The latest addition is a protected version which makes it possible for the lamp to be used in both closed and open luminaires in for example street lighting. This solution enables energy savings of 50% compared to old installations and reduces maintenance costs.


About two years ago Aura Light launched its first Long Life metal halide lamp for street lighting. After that a Long Life retail solution has been added and the latest addition is a street lighting solution that has a protection around the arc tubes. This enables the lamp to be operated in both closed and open luminaires.

– We can now offer our customers a whole range of Long Life metal halide lamps with the extra long lifetime. The lifetime is more than twice the lifetime compared to a standard lamp, which will maintenance costs and contribute to secure streets with brilliant white light. This is the perfect solution if you want to replace your old mercury lamp instead of changing the whole luminaire – it’s cost effective and sustainable, says Martin Malmros, CEO Aura Light International AB.

Based on the Aura Long Life technology for high pressure discharge lamps, two ceramic arc tubes are mounted in an outer glass bulb made of hard glass which results in more than twice the lifetime compared to standard products on the market. Lamps with two arc tubes instead of one, safeguards the proper process for the lifetime and lumen depreciation. The lifetime of Aura Crystal EP Long Life is 30,000 hours (12B10 = 90% survival rate – 12 h switching cycle). In professional applications it means seven to eight years of use. Average life for this 12 h cycle is 43,000 hours.
