Metal halide light sources, or projectors, use a discharge lamp which is much brighter than the equivalent wattage of halogen lamp. This is due to their higher efficiency.
Metal halide light sources are used where a brighter, punchier light is required. Metal halide lamps typically have a much longer life than tungsten halogen models, so are the preferred choice when lamp changes need to be less frequent.
Discharge lamps are not dimmable but our decorative and DMX controlled light sources can be supplied with a dimmer wheel. This is best used with larger diameters of fibre and is controlled by a separate electrical feed or by a switch on the light source.
