Abstract: High-pressure discharge lamps can only be restarted in the hot state at a very high starting voltage. In order to avoid hotstarting, a method for operating high-pressure discharge lamps without hotstarting comprises two high-pressure discharge lamps (12a, 12b) being provided in one luminaire. The two high-pressure discharge lamps are driven as follows: When the luminaire is switched off, the first lamp is switched off, and the second lamp is set to be in a standby state for the period of time for the recovery of the first lamp or remains in such a state, in which it is not switched off. When the luminaire is switched on again during this period of time, the second lamp can assume the operating state again immediately without being started. If the luminaire is not switched on again, the second lamp is likewise switched off once the period of time has elapsed.
Abstract: An electronic ballast includes a step-up converter, which includes a storage inductor, a diode, an intermediate circuit condenser and a switch element. According to the invention, a current passing through the storage inductor is used in the form of an indicator of turnon and turnoff times of the step-up converter oscillates in a self-exciting manner.
Abstract: The invention relates to a lamp base (2) for a high-pressure discharge lamp with a printed circuit board (30) mounted inside and populated with electrical components and printed conductors (31) for electrically contacting the components. At least one electrical contact (33) is mounted on the printed circuit board (30) for current supply (16) to the lamp, and at least one partition (24, 25) is provided for electrical insulation between the at least one electrical contact (33) or current supply (16) and the printed conductors (31) on the printed circuit board (30).
Abstract: The invention relates to a circuit assembly for operating at least one dielectrically impeded discharge lamp (La1) comprising an isolating transformer that is equipped with a switch (T1) in order to generate an operating signal for the at least one dielectrically impeded discharge lamp (La1) as well as a triggering circuit (14) for the switch (T1), which is configured so as to supply a pulse width-modulated square wave signal to the switch (T1). The switch-on times of the pulse width-modulated square wave signal depend upon the value of the resistance (R1, R2, R3) of a resistor assembly (20) that is connected to the triggering circuit (14), the value of the resistance (R1, R2, R3) of the resistor assembly (20) being provided with at least one time-dependent component (RT3). Also disclosed is a method for operating at least one dielectrically impeded discharge lamp (La1) on such a circuit assembly.
