Metal Halide Lamps
Metal Halide Lamps, also known as Metal Halide Discharge Lamps, are a type of high-intensity discharge (HID) lamp. They produce light by passing an electric current through a gas containing metal halides, typically a combination of metals like mercury, sodium, and metal iodides. The lamp consists of a quartz or ceramic arc tube enclosed within an outer glass envelope.
Metal Halide Lamps are known for their high luminous efficacy, which means they produce a lot of visible light for the amount of power consumed. They are commonly used in a variety of applications where high-quality, bright white light is required, such as sports stadiums, parking lots, large indoor spaces, and outdoor lighting.
What are the benefits of Halide Lamps?
Metal Halide Lamps offer several benefits that make them a popular choice for various lighting applications. Here are some of their key advantages:
High Luminous Efficacy: Metal Halide Lamps are known for their high luminous efficacy, which means they produce a significant amount of visible light for the power consumed.
Good Colour Rendering: Metal Halide Lamps have a relatively high colour rendering index (CRI), which is a measure of how accurately they render colours compared to natural light.
Wide Colour Temperature Range: Available in a range of colour temperatures, from warm white to cool white and daylight.
Directional Lighting: Designed to provide directional lighting, allowing for focused illumination in specific areas.
Relatively Long Lamp Life: Metal Halide Lamps have a longer lifespan compared to some other HID lamps, such as high-pressure sodium lamps.
High Output and Efficiency: Metal Halide Lamps can provide high levels of light output, making them suitable for applications that require intense illumination, such as large indoor spaces, outdoor areas, and sports arenas.
