Halostar Starlite passes “space inspection”

OSRAM conquers space

(lifePR) (Regensburg, ) The OSRAM Halostar Starlite halogen lamp has qualified for use in space. It passed 100 percent all the laboratory simulation tests under the extreme conditions of space. With immediate effect, the leading Japanese satellite manufacturer MELCO Kamakura Works will utilize this high-performance product for the additional lighting of the special camera of a new communications and measurement satellite.

While the lamps of other manufacturers tested suffered from damage to the filament due to the hefty vibrations of the space simulation, they had no effect on the light output and quality of the 12-volt, 50- watt Halostar Starlite lamps. This OSRAM product also withstood x-rays and infrared radiation with any problems, as well as the vibrations and vacuum simulated in the test. Even under the most difficult
"space conditions," its light quality did not suffer at all.

As a result, OSRAM halogen lamps will now shine with new radiance not only within your own four walls.

With the help of the Halostar Starlite, satellite cameras will be able to achieve a distinct improvement in the quality of the images they take of Earth, and will be able to deliver reliable data even under the most difficult conditions.

As Thomas Heider, GM Marketing at Mitsubishi Electric OSRAM Ltd., puts it, "We are proud that our products are being used not only in the area of general lighting, but also that their quality enables them to be used for innovative, scientific purposes as well."

As a result, one Halostar Starlite lamp will be onboard a state-of-the-art satellite as selected carefully when it takes off. MELCO Kamakura Works will complete development of the satellite in the coming year. The lamps will do more than just bring light into the darkness of space; in their small way, they will be making a contribution toward improving our understanding of our world.
