Luminescent lamps are one of the most popular and effective modern light sources. They are actively used in the production, commercial or office premises, and in addition in some specific industries – in the illumination of aquariums, in the manufacture of decorative effects, in cosmetological production and other fields. Compact products very quickly replace obsolete and ineffective incandescent lamps, increasing the quality and economic characteristics of household lighting.
Under the action of an electric discharge, a substance filling the lamp gives bright light, providing the product with excellent light output. Lamps of this type are widely used for offices, retail premises, municipal organizations and private real estate. Any model with slight energy consumption provides light several times brighter and more powerful than ordinary incandescent lamps, for this reason it is economical in operation.
Each lamp of this species is characterized by an elongated rectangular or cylindrical structure. They are quite narrow and have light weight, occupy a slight space when installing. Connected to the network 220 (230) in. In addition, modern manufacturers make models that can function from the battery – which is quite convenient in rooms without electric supply, in particular cottages, construction sites, warehouse and garage rooms.
At the moment, there are several varieties of devices. Stationary products, which include overhead, built -in and products for ceilings. They are fixed on a smooth surface, mainly used in household, industrial or domestic premises. Mobile products are suspended lamps that are suspended to the hook, move from one place to another or installed on the table and shelves. These models are designed for workshops, cottages, warehouses.
Luminescent have a number of significant advantages that allow them to use them in many areas of activity. The electric power block provides a soft connection and uniform glow throughout the entire operation time. Luminescent lamps used in lamps spend a much smaller number of electric energy than familiar lamps. Separate models are equipped with an mounted circuit breaker, which allows them to place them in rooms with a problematic installation of an external switch. The main advantage of products is considered to be increased efficiency regarding ordinary lamps, powerful lighting with slight energy consumption and a long service life.
How to choose the right product? There are basic technical characteristics on which the choice of the optimal device will depend:
-The base sets the size of fixation of the lamp, which can be mounted in the device: T4, T5 or T8.
-Power (2 – 36 W) sets, devices with which light return can be mounted in the lamp.
The only minus of the devices is the threat of health when breaking the lamp, which is very easy to avoid using a protective case.
