What is the function of Ignitor?
Ignitors An ignitor is a starting device that generates voltage pulses to start a discharge lamp.
What is the igniter and how does it work?
The ignition ignitor is the component that is responsible for sending a signal from the key’s ignition switch to the electrical system to supply power to the spark plugs and start your engine. In some systems the igniter is also responsible for advancing and retarding the engine’s timing.
What is the function of ignitor in HID lamps?
HID lamp ignitors provide a brief, high voltage pulse to the lamp to ignite the gases inside. When accurately timed, they help the lamp start more reliably. Our selection of ignitors are designed to work with either high pressure sodium lamps or metal halide lamps that operate a wide range of wattages.
How does an HPS ignitor work?
The HPS lamp consists of a narrow arc tube supported by a frame in a bulb. The arc tube has a high pressure inside for higher efficiency. The arc then heats up the mercury and the mercury vapor then lights, giving the lamp a bluish color. The lamp heats and the sodium is the last material to vaporize.
What are the types of igniter?
There are several types of igniters. Examples include furnace igniters, forced heater igniters, igniters for pellet stove systems, gas igniters, and remote igniters. Furnace igniters create a flame in the system’s start up mode.
What gas is used in street lights?
Sodium vapor lamp, sodium ionized electric discharge lamp used for street lighting and other types of lighting. LPS lamps have been widely used in street lighting since the 1930s for their efficiency (measured in lumens per watt) and their ability to penetrate yellow light.
What is HPS lights?
What is a High Pressure Sodium Light? High pressure sodium vapor (HPS) lights, similar to LPS lights, are a specific type of gas- discharge light (also known as a high intensity discharge, HID or arc light). As indicated by the name, “high” pressure sodium vapor lights operate at a higher internal pressure.
Is transformer same as ballast?
A transformer changes the amperage and / or voltage. It literally “Transforms” electrical energy. A ballast is like a capacitor. The electrical ballast stores energy in the same way that a water ballast stores water for stability.
How does the ignition system in a car work?
An automotive ignition system is divided into two electrical circuits — the primary and secondary circuits. The primary circuit carries low voltage. This circuit operates only on battery current and is controlled by the breaker points and the ignition switch.
Are there any user defined functions in ignition?
Some functions, like system.gui.messageBox (), are part of the scripting libraries provided by Ignition. Some functions, like math.sqrt (), are provided by the Python standard library. However, functions can also be defined in a script that can be used later on in the script.
How does a condenser in an ignition system work?
The condenser absorbs the energy and prevents arcing between the points each time they open. This condenser also aids in the rapid collapse of the magnetic field.
Are there any special ignition functions in Python?
Finally, some special Ignition System functions like system.gui.createPopupMenu or the runScript Expression function use functions as arguments. The concept of scope is very important in all programming, and Python is no exception. Scope defines what names are directly accessible without any qualifiers.
