Lucalox Standard Tubular Clear


Product information

High Pressure Sodium lamps
Tubular Clear & Elliptical Diffuse
70W, 100W, 150W, 250W, 400W and 1000W

From GE's invention of HPS lighting in 1965 to today's advanced sources, GE Lucalox™ High Pressure Sodium lamps have led the way in quality and innovation. GE's exclusive amalgam reservoir design works to increase life expectancy and improve lumen maintenance. 

With efficiencies approaching 130 lumens per watt, GE Lucalox™ Standard lamps are the most efficient light source available with acceptable colour rendering. High efficiency results in lower operating costs and thus a lower electricity bill.

Most Lucalox™ lamps have an average rated life of up to 28,500 hours. Long life means lower replacement and maintenance costs.

Survival rate and lumen maintenance

Average lamp life & lumen maintenance is based on laboratory tests of a large number of representative lamps under controlled conditions, including operation at 11 hours per start on ballasts having specified electrical characteristics. The following conditions can reduce average lamp life and lumen maintenance:

  • Frequent on/off switching
  • High line voltage
  • Vibration
  • High ambient temperature within the fixture
  • Ballast and ignitor characteristics


Average rated life

The survival of individual lamps or particular groups of lamps depends on these system conditions, and actual data may fall dependent upon the lamp operating conditions even below the lower limit. 


For cost-of-light calculations involving these lamps, the following estimated operating times are suggested for 50% survival:

  • 50-400W – 28,500 hours
  • 1000W – 24,000 hours
