UltrAA lamps are high-intensity, boosted discharge hollow cathode lamps. They use the standard lamp current, but apply an extra boost discharge within the lamp to increase the emission intensity. The boost current is supplied from a secondary control module (either integrated into the instrument or supplied from an external module).
UltrAA lamps are manufactured from the purest cathode materials, and every lamp is QA/QC tested to guarantee performance and reliability. These lamps are coded for automatic lamp recognition (except for 50/55 AA, SpectrAA-50/55 and SpectrAA-5 models), eliminating the risk of time-consuming errors when reprogramming the lamp position.
The warranty coverage on hollow cathode lamps is Agilent’s standard warranty covering all our chemistries and supplies – 90 days from the date of shipment to the end-user. No logs of operating hours to maintain to qualify for the warranty.
Agilent has arranged for a recycling service
for used Atomic Absorption lamps in North America.
