The tubular light bulb is popular among commercial consumers due to its high light output and efficiency. Its long, cylindrical shape makes it ideal for street lighting, floodlighting, and warehousing applications where brightness should be dominant. Interestingly, it also consumes very little energy while providing excellent illumination that lasts longer than other bulbs, especially the high-pressure sodium varieties renowned for their longevity. HID tubular light bulbs come with specific control gear needed for proper operation but once installed they offer unbeatable performance in terms of brightness and durability.
Tubular bulbs, which come in tube-shaped designs, are versatile and used extensively across various settings. They feature a wide array of base types such as E27, B22, E14, and other options like B15 or E40 for specific purposes. Besides the typical applications around households that require focused lighting solutions like appliances or decorative lighting fixtures; tubular lights also perform optimally in larger commercial areas including retail stores and warehouses where their efficacy is invaluable to business operations. These cylindrical luminaires deliver exceptional output making them suitable for illuminating factory floors with high ceilings providing an adequate range of ambient brightness conducive to worker safety while reducing energy costs associated with halogen bulbs commonly found in this industry sector.
LED Tubular Bulbs
LED Tubular bulbs have the advantage because of their extended lifespan compared to traditional lighting options, such as incandescent lamps. These LED products can last up to 25,000 hours before needing a replacement. This characteristic ensures that the need for replacing these lamps could be reduced significantly in the long run when compared with non-LED versions of lighting appliances.
LED Tubular Lamps have remarkable energy-saving capabilities, up to 90% compared to other types of lamps. This indicates that the brightness and light levels remain consistent or even better while consuming significantly less power, making them an excellent alternative for eco-conscious individuals who wish to save on expenses whilst reducing their carbon footprint. So, with lowered energy consumption, these lights are both sustainable and environmentally friendly.
To add to their eco-friendly qualities, it's worth noting that LED options don't have any mercury and emit much less heat. Plus, they're smaller and more adaptable, which makes them a great choice for many high-output commercial settings where energy efficiency is needed.
Common Light Bulb Socket
The standard light bulb socket in North America is the E26/E27 medium screw, which was named after Thomas Edison. The letter 'E' refers to the type of mechanism used for fitting bulbs into sockets. An E base indicates that it has a screw cap while 26 or 27 numbers indicate the millimeter measurement of diameter for the base/socket. Although E26 and E27 only differ by one millimeter, you can still use either interchangeably as they both accommodate different-sized bulbs. These sockets are versatile enough to be utilized on lamps, ceiling light fixtures, outdoor floodlights including vanity lights- suitable for household lighting purposes!
Just in case you're not sure, here's a quick reference guide to help you choose the right bulb bases when purchasing sockets.
Medium Base:You can identify a medium base by looking for either E26 or E27 codes, which indicate a screw-in type of base.
GU10: The base of GU10 lamps involves a twisting and locking mechanism.
Bi-pin:Bi-pin base types are indicated by codes G4 or GU24.
Candelabra: The candelabra is another screw-in base type that's similar to the medium kind, but smaller in size. It's represented by the code E12.
Bayonet: The bayonet base consists of two pins and requires a combination of pushing and twisting to be properly inserted into the socket. They’re represented by codes B22 and B15.
