The electrodeless high-performamce lighting system
The ENDURA system was developed specifically for applications, where relamping is associated with extremely high levels of complexity and cost. These include, for example, tunnel lighting or the lighting in industrial buildings.
The extremely long system lifetime of 60,000 hours (failure rate < 12 percent) provides approx. seven years' worth of permanent lighting. That is some five times longer than conventional fluorescent lamps.
The way it works: the discharge required to produce light does not occur - as with conventional fluorescent lamps - between two electrodes but without electrodes in a closed "ring" with no beginning or end. The energy is injected from outside via two ferrite rings, using magnetic fields. Thus the lamp contains no wear-and-tear parts. The unique ENDURA principle furthermore produces quantities of light, which conventional fluorescent lamps cannot match.
