Polarion HID spotlight
The term HID stands for High Intensity Discharge, or gas emission in plain English. It is a lighting technology where the traditional lamp with the wire in the reflector is replaced with a thick-walled quartz glass tube filled with noble gas and metal salts. Furthermore, a ballast or high tension transformer is used in a HID lamp which provides the necessary arc voltage at the correct voltage. This generates a flame arc between two electrodes in the glass tube, which temporarily makes the metal salts in the noble gas evaporate. As a result, they radiate light. The light output possible by using this technology is simply phenomenal. In the case of Polarion it can best be compared with the big lights of a medium category car.
