Metal halide lamps with quartz technology are the best solution for the lighting of large areas or specific application like sport lighting where the quality of the light is a main requirement.
On the other side HID lamps require long restrike times, even up to 15 minutes. In some applications, like sport and security installations, jails, airports, harbors, tunnels and TV shootings, a prolonged lack of lighting is not permitted. The know-how and the experience gained over the years on the discharge lamps and lighting systems have allowed IREM to develop a new electronic hot restrike igniter ADE series for the ignition and instant re-ignition of 1000W and 2000W HID lamps. The IP65 protection degree allow to use this compact and reliable electronic ignitor suitable for indoor and outdoor applications.


  • sport lighting,
  • wide areas lighting,
  • security lighting,
  • industrial plant, jails, airports, harbors, tunnels lighting,
  • TV shootings.

IREM proposal

The newest ADI and ADE series represent a compact and complete range of high voltage igniters expressly designed to strike both single-ended and double-ended metal halide lamps and high pressure sodium lamps. These symmetrical igniters have been designed to reduce and simplify the installation through the connection downstream from the ballast. They are characterized by electronic control, internal timing, very wide operating temperature (-30°C/+70°C), compact design, robustness and high reliability. The characteristics of these igniters comply with the specifications of the most important lamp manufacturers.
