What does PAR30 mean in lighting?

What does PAR30 mean in lighting?

Parabolic aluminized reflector (PAR) 30 bulbs control light more precisely. They produce about four times the concentrated light intensity of general service A shape incandescents, and are used in recessed and track lighting. Like all light bulbs, the 30 value represents the diameter of the bulb in 1⁄8 of an inch.

What is Philips SceneSwitch?

The SceneSwitch is a 60-watt-equivalent, white-only LED bulb that’s capable of producing three color temperatures at the flip of a switch: Turn the bulb on and you get 800 lumens of moderately soft 2700K light. Turn it off, then on again, and the bulb delivers 800 lumens but at a quite cold 5000K color temperature.

What are the three types of LEDs?

Fundamentally, there are three different types of LED technology that are used in LED lighting – DIP, SMD and COB.

How LED Works explain?

An LED bulb produces light by passing the electric current through a semiconducting material—the diode—which then emits photons (light) through the principle of electroluminescence. Don’t let that big word scare you! The electrical resistance of the filament causes it to get so hot that it glows, producing light.

What is a BR30?

What are R/BR30 Bulbs? Reflector (R) or Bulged Reflector (BR) 30 bulbs have a reflective coating on the inside of the bulb that directs light forward. Like all light bulbs, the 30 value represents the diameter of the bulb in 1⁄8 of an inch. Therefore, a R30 is 3.75 inches in diameter.

What is the difference between par 20 and PAR 30?

Unlike smaller PAR16 and PAR20 bulbs, PAR30 LED bulbs provide a wider beam angle, making them perfect for both spot and flood lighting. For example, you could swap out your BR bulb with a PAR bulb if you were looking for a sharp, focused light to illuminate a single object like a painting.

What is LED explain?

LED stands for light emitting diode. LED lighting products produce light up to 90% more efficiently than incandescent light bulbs. An electrical current passes through a microchip, which illuminates the tiny light sources we call LEDs and the result is visible light.
