Halogen & HID Lamps

A halogen lamp, also known as a tungsten halogen lamp or quartz iodine lamp contain a small capsule filled with Halogen gas, which emits a bright white light. Halogen bulbs Long life and full spectrum Halogen bulbs use less energy and last longer than standard incandescent bulbs of the same wattage. The life of these bulbs is around 2,000 to 10,000 hours. The small size of halogen lamps permits their use in compact optical systems for projectors and illumination. Optically superior, halogen light bulbs are the perfect choice for spectacular decorative, accent, ambient and task lighting.

High-intensity discharge lamps (HID lamps) are a type of electrical gas-discharge lamp which produces light by means of an electric arc between tungsten electrodes housed inside a translucent or transparent fused quartz or fused alumina arc tube. High-intensity discharge lamps make more visible light per unit of electric power consumed than fluorescent and incandescent lamps since a greater proportion of their radiation is visible light in contrast to heat.

HID lamps are typically used when high levels of light over large areas are required, and when energy efficiency and/or light intensity are desired. These areas include gymnasiums, large public areas, warehouses, movie theaters, football stadiums, outdoor activity areas, roadways, parking lots, and pathways.
