Yesterday while firing up an Arrimax I felt like I was on top of a mountain, the air surrounding the fixture was so pure. Just curious as to the scientific explanation for this? I hear its fairly common with the big guys. Thanks.

The ultraviolet produced by the bulb ionizes the surrounding air producing ozone. The effect goes away normally after the startup period of an HMI. You can smell it on any HMI bulb from a 250w on up.
