Default 90% Efficiency Lighting in production, reaching maturity

Quote:
High Efficiency Plasma (HEP) technology is a new and unique genre of electrodeless, RF driven lighting invented by Ceravision. It is defined as a light source that is capable of producing at least 90 lumens per system watt.
http://www.ceravision.com/page/high-efficiency-plasma

these guys are boasting a 5KW lamp....they refuse to deliver specs online of what the Lumens are from a light that size, but i have a feeling it dwarfs the sun.

Wikipedia reference-linkCeravision

http://www.luxim.com/

see also: Wikipedia reference-linkPlasma lamp

these things are tiny with massive output

23000 Lumens from 280watts

A 5 kw CO2 laser will cut steel and needs its own power supply.

I really can't imagine a 5kW anything converted into visible light at 95% efficiency. Dwarfing the sun in terms of lumens seems likely. That is a military grade weapon you're describing.

spectrum issues probably put 5 1000w hps halides ahead still. Just a guess.

nope

these lights have a dial-in gamma

incidentally their spectrum resembles the sun

just looked through their web material. I see what it is now. Somehow I had a different thing in mind when I considered it first. Or, I imagined a 1000 mercury vapor or hp sodium at 5 times the output in a single bulb and tried to imagine it not igniting the surrounding atmosphere. But that is a part of the efficiency issue. Very little infrared. It just seemed like one of those, yes it can be done but why would you want to? things.

I'm thinking grow lights without the characteristic power spike

we probably have about a decade before the cops detect these things with an rf analyzer

need to put them a km underground powered with a geothermal sterling engine generator...

They are big enough that it might actually pay for itself.

one of the biggest caveats for a while was rf leakage from the magnetron which interferes with phones and wifi. Now this new company, Ceravision, has been making their waveguides out of fused quartz and somehow eliminating the leaks

No, you can't do that. Spill.

I'm in correspondence with their reps now, This morning asked for an ambient rf and heat spec.
