Normal Sudoku rules apply.
On arrows digits must multiply to the number in the arrows circle.
On thermos digits must multiply from the bulb end. (i.e. every digit along the thermo must be a multiple of the previous digit.)
Digits in a cage cannot repeat and cannot sum to a prime number.
Purple lines must be split into 2 segments with digits that multiply to consecutive numbers.
Digits may repeat on a purple line if allowed by other rules.
A segment of a purple line can be of any length.
Some examples of what purple lines could look like can be found here

great puzzle! more difficult than 2 stars surely, though.
i agree that calling the purple lines renbans is confusing; i had to think of them as completely new constraints to get my head around them.

I'd hesitate at calling them Renbans. Maybe just say "purple lines". This would give a visual clue that it's something to do with consecutive numbers (due to using the normal Renban color), without using the specific term which explicitly only means "a set of non-repeating consecutive numbers".
For example, I saw a puzzle recently in which the creator used the normal cage dashed border to contain certain boxes...except because they didn't use the normal cage rules (digits could be repeated), they called them "areas contained within a dashed line" instead.
