starting time

time required for an arc discharge lamp to develop an electrically stable arc discharge, the lamp being operated under specified conditions and the time being measured from the moment its circuit is energized

NOTE There is a time delay in the starting device between the time when power is applied to this device and the time when power is applied to the lamp electrodes. The starting time is measured from the latter moment.
