What is discharge lamp?
: an electric lamp in which an enclosed gas or vapor glows or causes a phosphor coating on the lamp’s inner surface to glow.
What is a discharge lamp used for?
A discharge lamp is a ‘Lamp that produces light by discharging an electric current through a gas (neon, argon, krypton) or a gas / metal vapour mixture (mercury, sodium).
What kind of light does an LED give off?
A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source that emits light when current flows through it. Electrons in the semiconductor recombine with electron holes, releasing energy in the form of photons.
|Pin configuration||Anode and cathode|
What are the types of discharge fluorescent lamp?
Discharge lamp types include low pressure mercury (fluorescent), induction, high pressure mercury vapour, mercury-blended, metal halide, low pressure sodium and high pressure sodium.
What gas is in a UV bulb?
UVC bulbs are filled with either Argon gas or a mixture of rare gases including Argon, Neon and/or other gases depending on the germicidal requirements for your application. They are constructed similarly to fluorescent lamps and operate the same with a similar discharge device.
