Weird Russian "Photon" shortwave UV induction lamp

Weird Russian "Photon" shortwave UV induction lamp

This is a view of this amazing Russian UV device opened, showing the sealed capsule energised with a high frequency signal applied to the coils. More pictures available on the ebay listing here.

This device appears to be quite a dangerous emitter of UV-C, but is marketed as providing a number of health benefits. It is a bit strange that they have used RF induction technology, when a more conventional fluorescent circuit would do. Plus it can only be run for short periods before it overheats.

The lamp design, is very similar to the sulfur lamp, but with induction coils rather than magnetron and without rotating the lamp above its axis at high speed.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230V, 50hz country.

Me too Alex, warning to all only view behind glass or pop a jam jar over it, UV bad for skin and eyes glass is a block to UV

Interested in the history of electric lighting and incandescent in particular and neon glow lamps.

What a remarkable thing! I wonder why they chose the RF operation method instead of a miniature electrode-based low pressure mercury lamp. Perhaps it was for increased lifetime - the normal Germicidal lamps do not have an especially long life.
