The TL-M RS (Rapid Start) lamp (tube diameter 38 mm) has an external silicon coating and an external ignition strip. It is suitable for situations where low temperatures and high humidity require fast and stable ignition but color rendering is not important. Rapid Start lamps can be ignited without a starter.
