Standex Igniters Set the Tone for Majority of World's Street Lights
When the world's largest manufacturer of street lighting needed a solid state igniter for high pressure sodium, halide, and other lighting systems, they turned to Standex. As the initiator of the "turn on" sequence to light the bulbs, these igniters play a crucial role in illuminating roadways, outdoor sporting events, and facilities with high bay lighting. With their reputation on the line this manufacturer needed a robust design that would deliver night after night.
The project was truly a collaborative design effort. Their engineers were well versed in their end-customer wants and needs — while our engineers brought decades of custom electrical component designs to the table. Together we worked through the circuitry to provide a robust design. To achieve success, however, our designs have to pass the industry's most rigorous life cycle testing under severe conditions. We understand that all components within the assembly must work together — every time — and for a very long time.
Along the way we developed innovations like the first-ever snap in design which eliminates hard wiring problems and speeds future service calls. We even developed a retrofit assembly which allows competitive brands to be fitted with our unique snap-in igniters.
In the dark on how to proceed with your lighting systems design? Then call Standex. Working together we can shed some light on the problem and develop a solution to illuminate the world (or at least your portion of it).
