Lighting Q&A: Lighting And Light Bulb Basics
* What are the different types of lighting? The different types of lights are incandescent, tungsten-halogen, compact fluorescent lamps, tubular fluorescent fixtures, and HID (high-density discharge). •Incandescent lights have a relatively short life. They can only withstand between 1000 and 3000 hours of continuous use. They are also the least efficient source of regular lights. •Tungsten-halogen are lights that belong to cateogyr of incandescent lamps. They have become gradually popular in recent years.
They generate a white light with more intense standards. •Dense florescent lights are a kind of fluorescent light but generate color more similar to some incandescent lamps. They combine the standard features of other lights. •Tubular fluorescent lights are in tubular shape. They have a smaller diameter but are more efficient compared to other lights.
They have a magnetic ballast that the lightning features depend upon. •HID is a type of light that has a high output of light. Its components are mercury, metal halide, vapor and high pressure of sodium lighting. * What are the different kinds of fixtures? An extensive diversity of fixtures is available for different purposes. In general, fixtures are practical, versatile, presentable, and durable to make the interior design colorful. The three main groups of fixtures are end piece fixtures, ceiling lights fixtures, and landscape fixtures. •End piece fixtures have a design to work with solid standard cable wire. •Ceiling light fixtures are handled with modified cable with larger diameter and capacitors. •Landscape fixtures are used for giving colors and additional attraction for the background of landscape. * What is a fluorescent light? A fluorescent light produces energy from the atom.
It is composed of many small particle pockets that expand to cause momentum. The basic unit of lights in flourescent is “light photons.” Atoms discharge light photons when the electrons heat up. The electrons travel around certain orbit to increase the net charge and produce energy levels. After that light is produced from the nucleus. * What is incandescent light? Incandescent lights produce light by a shimmering filament. The filament is heated by white-hot electric current. Incandescence is the light-giving method. A glass container or lamp encloses the bulb. It normally has a vacuum with a low-pressure to produce oxidation of filament with a high temperature.
* What is halogen? Halogen can provide brilliant illumination by the use of electric current to heat the filament of metal and tungsten until it burns. Halogen has a filament inside a container or envelope. A halogen lamp works much the same way as an incandescent lamp. On the other hand, the chemical reactions between halogen lamps are proficient and brighter than incandescent lamps.
