Default Lamp

The Lamp comes from Excelitas Technologies and is part of the Cermax Lamps line, part number Y1940.

The default life is 1500 hours in ICS, then it tells you to change it. Our first lamp made it shortly over 2000hours before I got nervous and changed it. It was still working fine, but i did not want to risk it any longer. A normal 35+5bp run will suck ~125hours of life from the lamp and AB sells the new one for $900, I think... I pretty sure that's not calculated into their cost calculator. I wrote to the company about ordering direct and I'll post the price once I hear back from them.

Product is exclusive to Hitachi... Waiting on Hitachi to reply now...
