[Tig] TR: Lamp duration

I'm wondering if you are operating the machine with a high lamp current?  Do
you get the red warning light on the control panel?  We too would get
1200-2000 hrs per lamp.

what kind of failure are you referring to?

I'd say 300hrs would be FPN failure?
if this is the case, same with 16mm as 35mm?

Could need a full electronic alignment or integration chamber is dirty,
dropping light levels...

I had a Spirit for a good 8ish years and I never had a lamp fail before the
'recommended' 1000hrs.
Only if we did a extreme amount of power off/on (as happens during fault
searching on a beast like that).

Usually I forgot to change lamp and they died at about 1200-2000hrs.

If your lamps at popping after 300hrs you are either powering it down every
night, or have bad cooling. I would guess.

Make sure everything is 'in place' in the lampbox and all the cooling flangs
(or what the word is) are intact.
And that you use the heat-paste correctly when fitting a new lamp.


That's the only thing I can think of.
Good luck.

Keep the film running.

Hello All,



I have a doubt about time duration lamp on Spirit datacine (SDC2000)

Actually we can't go beyond 300h instead of 500h.

Is someone have an idea about this?



Regards,



Thierry
