Abstract : The patent describes a high voltage diode in combination with a vacuum relay and a low voltage power supply which provides an ignition circuit for a Xenon lamp, eliminating the use of a heavy and continuous duty high voltage pulse transformer. This permits appreciable reduction in weight of the ignition circuit, which also produces much less radio frequency interference than a conventional spark discharge type igniter.
