What are Triggers in the DR 6000™ UV VIS Spectrophotometer UV Lamp History?
Summary
Triggers in DR 6000™ UV Lamp History

 
Answer
The Triggers in the DR 6000™ UV VIS Spectrophotometer UV Lamp History are the number of ignition attempts of the UV Lamp. The DR 6000™ will attempt to ignite the lamp with the lowest voltage option when the Lamp History is reset. If that attempt fails, it will try again with a higher voltage until it is successfully lit. When a higher voltage ignites the lamp, subsequent ignition attempts will be tried using the last successful voltage first until the Lamp History is reset. The number of triggers should not be more than 1-2 times more than the number of cycles. If a lamp requires multiple attemps to ignite each time, this could indicate a problem with the hardware in the instrument and the life of the lamp may be less than expected.
