A family of single-ended fluorescent discharge light sources with small-diameter [16-millimeter (5/8-inch) or less] tubes.
A generic name used for a whole family of small, single-ended fluorescent lamps with a folded, bridged, or spiral glass tube design and with high color rendering (cri80) and a long life (8,000 hours).
A small fluorescent lamp that is often used as an alternative to incandescent GLS lamps. The lamp life is 4 to 10 times longer than incandescent lamps, and is some 3-5 times more efficient. Known generally as CFL lamps, and available in many versions. All require a ballast, which may be integral with the lamp or separate with a bayonet cap (BC) or Edison screw (ES) base.
The general term applied to fluorescent lamps that are single-ended and that have smaller diameter tubes that are bent to form a compact shape.
A fluorescent type bulb that has the ability to be utilized in an incandescent fixture, and still maintain the efficiency and qualities of a standard fluorescent bulb. These bulbs generally offer 75% savings in electricity while maintaining comparable light levels. Compact Fluorescent bulbs require a special adapter/ballast or may have one built in. Average life span is 10,000 hours.
Small fluorescent lamps used as more efficient alternatives to incandescent lighting. Also called PL, CFL, Twin-Tube, or BIAX lamps.
A small fluorescent lamp, usually with one or more bends in the tube.
A fluorescent lamp of a small compact shape, with a single base that provides the entire mechanical support function.
Compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) use an advanced technology that uses much less energy than incandescent or standard fluorescent light bulbs. They come in a range of styles and sizes, and electric utilities often provide instant or mail-in rebates for CFL purchases.
The general term applied to families of smaller diameter fluorescent lamps, some of which have built-in ballasts and BC or ES caps for easy replacement of incandescent lamps. Use advanced 'electronic' technology to produce a highly efficient and compact light using a fraction of the electricity of ordinary incandescent bulbs. These bulbs use about one-fifth to a quarter of the electricity of standard bulbs and last up to ten times as long.
An industry term for small diameter (T4-T5), single ended energy efficient fluorescent lamps. These lamps are used to replace inefficient incandescent lamps and consume approximately one-forth of the wattage of incandescent lamps with similar lumen output. CFL lamps are available in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4100K and 5000K color temperatures and have high CRI ratings. The use of rare earth phosphors create a warm and inviting mood, with colors so rich and natural that you won't believe they're fluorescent. Ballasts regulate CFL lamps.
(abbrev. CFL) - A small fluorescent lamp designed to fit in light fixtures that use standard incandescent lamps.
The general term applied to families of smaller diameter fluorescent lamps, some of which have built in ballasts and medium screw bases for easy replacement of incandescent lamps.
Small-size fluorescent lamps. Brand names are "PL'(Philips), "Dulux"(Osram) and "Biax" (GE).
A device with small diameter fluorescent lamp(s), built-in ballast and a medium screw base for easy replacement of incandescent bulbs. Fluorescent tubes are usually 5/8" in diameter and may be spiral or U-shaped.
These are small long living fluorescent lights that can be used as an alternative to incandescent discount light bulbs. They can also be known as BIAX lamps. (See Fluorescent).
