Lighting Type – Pull-down menu selections:
Compact Fluorescent – A fluorescent lamp of a small compact shape, with a single base that provides the entire mechanical support function.
Fluorescent Lamp – A low-pressure electric discharge lamp in which a phosphor coating transforms some of the ultraviolet energy generated by the discharge into light. These lamps are available in T5, T5-High Output, T8, T8-High Efficiency, and T12 technologies. "T" stands for "tubular" and indicates the diameter of the fluorescent lamp tube.
Incandescent/Halogen – A lamp that produces light by a filament heated to incandescence by an electric current.
Metal Halide – A type of high-intensity discharge lamps producing light by an electric arc through a gaseous mixture. The lamp consists of an arc tube within an outer bulb.
Mercury Vapor – A gas discharge lamp that uses an electric arc through vaporized mercury to produce light.
High-Pressure Sodium – A type of high-intensity discharge lamps producing light from sodium in an excited state. The light usually appears yellow.
LED – LEDs (light emitting diode) are small light sources that become illuminated by the movement of electrons through a semiconductor material.
Lamp Wattage – Enter the watts per lamp*
Number of Lamps – Enter the number of lamps per fixture.
|*Typical Lamp Wattage for Available Lighting Types|
|Compact Fluorescent||13-15||typical 40-75 watt incandescent replacement|
|Fluorescent T5- High Output||54|
|Fluorescent T8- Super T8||28|
|Fluorescent T12- High Output||60|
|High-Pressure Sodium||50-150||typical non-street/parking applications|
|Incandescent/Halogen||40-75||typical home/commercial use|
|LED||8-24||8-14 for typical incandescent replacements|
20-24 for FL tube replacements
