Design features

  • One product offering for global applications; the Champ nVMV family has the required IEC and ATEX certifications to provide solutions for specification requirements around the world
  • Restricted breathing (Ex nR) protection is standard; this provides better T-ratings, as gases will not enter the lamp chamber and control gear housing
  • Provides an integrated ballast with thermal cut-off functionality incorporated into the control gear; in the event of abnormal temperatures or when the lamp approaches end of life, the cut-off functionality protects the ballast from overheating or burning out
  • Identical mounting cover for IEC and NEC applications – regardless of wattage, options, and accessories; reduce inventory costs and provide greater flexibility for engineering designers, customers and distributors
  • HPS lamps restrike in 10-30 seconds with the instant restrike option (IR) should lamp extinguish due to system voltage drop or momentary loss; optional built-in cut-off feature will shut off the instant restrike to avoid continuous high energy pulsing when lamp is inoperative or nearing end of life
  • Available with the Champ Quick-Clip; Quick-Clip secures the housing to the cover, providing faster, easier and safer luminaire installation
