The Difference Between Low Voltage Light And High-pressure Lamp

Update:30 Dec

The difference between Low Voltage Light and a high-pressure lamp:

Low-voltage lamps have the characteristics of safety, explosion-proof, energy saving, etc., and are widely used in mobile equipment lighting, household appliances auxiliary lighting, industrial and mining, other special occasion lighting, and other fields.

High-voltage lamps: compact replacement lamps suitable for mains voltage and attracting attention.

The advantages are different:

High Voltage Lamps: Mains voltage halogen lamps are perfectly suited for the private sector due to their standard lamp base, low system cost, and simple installation mode. OSRAM main voltage halogen lamps have single or double-sided lamp bases and typically have an operating voltage of 120, 230, or 240 volts.

Low voltage halogen lamps operate at twelve volts and have higher luminous efficacy, better color temperature, and generally longer life than mains voltage halogen lamps. These lights are perfectly suited for the professional sector. Shops, hotels, or restaurants - it's here that low-voltage lights perform at their best.

working principle

After the high-pressure sodium lamp is started, the initial stage is a low-pressure discharge of mercury vapor and xenon. At this time, the working voltage of the bulb is very low and the current is very high; as the discharge process continues, the arc temperature gradually rises, and the mercury and sodium vapor pressures are determined by the temperature of the coldest end of the discharge tube. When the temperature of the cold end of the discharge tube reaches a stable level, The discharge tends to be stable, and the luminous flux, working voltage,

The working current and power are also in normal working condition. Under normal working conditions, the entire startup process takes about 10 minutes.
