FAQs

 

CovRguard Saf-T-Gard lamps offer extraordinary protection with minimum light loss, block most ultraviolet light emissions, and meet FDA, NSF, and OSHA standards, keeping your surroundings bright and protected.

The new incandescent lamps utilize a coating for breakage protection, and offer superior energy-efficient and an outstanding quality of light for whatever the application. The fluorescent lamps have a polycarbonate coating. Both coatings help contain the glass in the event of breakage protecting the area from flying glass.

 

因为白炽灯和卤素灯通过热产生光,所以大约 90% 的能量以热能形式释放(也 为红外辐射)。为了减少普通白炽灯和卤素灯散发出的热量,可以使用较低瓦数的灯泡(比如 60 瓦,而非100瓦)。

 

 

荧光灯产生光的方式完全不同。不管是节能灯还是荧光灯管都含有一种气体,当被电流激发,撞击荧光灯内部的涂层发出光线(这样就比白炽灯泡更节能)家庭使用的荧光灯只有约30%的能量以热能形式释放,所以工作溫度更低

 

白炽灯的使用寿命可能会因为振动、冲击和电源电压波动而缩短。如果一个灯泡 被使 用于振动或震动的环境,例如车库门开启灯或风扇灯,您应该尝试使用强丝灯泡 GE 制造特别用于以上两种用途的灯泡 : Survivor 耐震动和 ”Ruff-n-Tuff“ 耐用灯泡。

 

一般白炽灯故障的另一个原因是电压过高。一般電網供电会将电压调节得很好,但是有时又难以控制。国家電網允许出现特定的偏差,因为预期的荷载、本地荷载峰值和其他指标。允许限制通常为10%,也就是说120伏特的家庭标准电压允许范围是108132伏特。

 

白炽灯对电压非常敏感。例如额定120伏的灯泡,如果在125伏的电压下,可能只有二分之一的额定寿命,或者用于130伏的平均电压下,只有三分之一的额定寿命。

 

首先您要做的事情,就是查看灯泡最差的使用寿命。灯泡亮了多长时间?确保不要计算关闭的时间。典型的白炽灯额定寿命为750-1000小时,也就是说大约每年更换2.5个灯泡。

 

下一个方法可能并不容易。获知灯泡应用电压的唯一方法就是在测试的电路中连接一台电压计,这样它就会记录灯泡亮着的时候的电压。这一步只能由有资质的电工完成。如果您确定您使用的电压比额定电压高,您需要联系电力公司进行修理。

 

 

一般情况下, PAR 系列通常包括聚光灯和泛光灯,由较薄的玻璃及非耐热玻璃制成,大多使用于户外用途。然而,如果冷水滴落或溅落到灯泡热玻璃上,PAR 灯泡很容易破裂。所以,很多聚光灯和泛光灯的使用说明中包含警示性说明,如果水溅落或滴落到温热的玻璃上,玻璃可能会破裂。如果您将这种灯泡用于户外用途,应该安装防止水到玻璃上的户外灯具。

 

Insects and humans have different visual perceptions. This allows for people to have better control of nocturnal insect nuisances by adjusting the color of lighting.

The human visual system is activated by radiant energy in the color range from deep blue to dark red, which we call light. The vision of flying insects, however, is shifted away from long-wavelength red toward the shorter blue and near ultraviolet (black light) wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum. Sources which radiate ultraviolet energy and blue light are most attractive to flying insects, while those with a deficiency of ultraviolet and blue are less attractive. Insects see black light fluorescent, mercury, and metal halide best. Lamps which insects have a difficult time seeing include incandescent, high-pressure sodium, and bug light incandescent (yellow).

RESIDENTIAL AREAS Homeowners can reduce insect annoyance by using incandescent "bug lights", gold fluorescent, or high-pressure sodium near entrances. Unfortunately none of these sources render complexions, flowers, or greenery very well because of their lack of blue light. In addition, any light source near doorways should be shielded from horizontal view so that the flying insect will be less apt to see it. If possible, the light source should be located a short distance from the entrance and the light should be directed to illuminate the entrance. Note that incandescent "bug lights" do not repel bugs - they just don't attract as many as plain bulbs because the insects cannot see the yellow light as well as they can see blue or ultraviolet light. Another tip is that decks, patios, and particularly barbecue and eating areas should be lighted from a distance. The custom of stringing colored bulbs for a festive atmosphere will work reasonably well if the majority of light in the area is beamed in from some distance away.

COMMERCIAL AREAS Elimination of insect pests from commercial food preparation and serving areas is particularly important for health reasons. Many food preparation areas are protected from flying insects by a combination of lighting systems and insect traps. Due to the fact that insect systems need to comply with the National Electrical Code or the Canadian Electrical Code, specialists in the field of insect lighting should be involved with any design.

INSECT TRAPS Most insect traps use black light fluorescent lamps as an attractant. Some traps destroy the insects by use of an electrified grid while others trap the insects on a renewable sticky surface. An obvious caution is to install the traps outside the area you are trying to protect. The 9th edition of "The IESNA Lighting Handbook" recommends placing trap lamps 30- to 60-m away from the perimeter of the area you are trying to protect from entering insects. Specialists should be consulted to determine specific types of traps and their locations.

 

According to "The IESNA Lighting Handbook," incandescent lamps are frequently used to light flowering plants since they are strong in the red portion of the spectrum. However, incandescent lamps give off considerable heat and if used without care can damage plants. This includes reflector lamps.

To avoid excessive heat, consider using GE's new compact fluorescent reflector lamp (GE FLE20TBX/L/R40, Product Code 40332). It provides light with less heat than the incandescent reflector lamp. Plus, it uses only 20 watts of electricity, has a 10,000-hour average life, and a warm color (2700K) useful for flowering plants.

因为白炽灯和卤素灯通过热产生光,所以大约 90% 的能量以热能形式释放(也 为红外辐射)。为了减少普通白炽灯和卤素灯散发出的热量,可以使用较低瓦数的灯泡(比如 60 瓦,而非100瓦)。

 

 

荧光灯产生光的方式完全不同。不管是节能灯还是荧光灯管都含有一种气体,当被电流激发,撞击荧光灯内部的涂层发出光线(这样就比白炽灯泡更节能)家庭使用的荧光灯只有约30%的能量以热能形式释放,所以工作溫度更低

 

卤素灯是白炽灯的一种。它的钨丝就像家庭中使用的常规白炽灯,但是灯泡内充满卤素气体。当一个白炽灯灯泡(通过加热钨丝产生光线)亮着的时候,钨 蒸发成为灯泡内的气体,然后在玻璃壁上沉淀。当钨颗粒蒸发 到一定量 ,电流不能通过钨丝传导,灯泡就 烧坏 了。卤素灯里面的卤素气体将蒸发的钨颗粒重新送回灯丝,并再次进行沉淀。这样就比普通 A 类白炽灯的使用寿命更长,而且使光线照射穿过的灯泡壁更洁净。

 

白炽灯和卤素灯,简称为钨丝灯,其使用寿命受限于灯丝的情况。灯丝是指灯泡内被加热时产生光线的金属丝。如果由于外力导致灯丝受损,例如灯泡掉落,或者灯丝部分区域没有钨 而使得 灯泡无法工作,。在钨丝灯泡亮着的时候,钨丝蒸发到灯泡内的气体中 , 溫度下降後 就会 重新 凝结。普通白炽灯产品,钨 会凝结在灯泡壁而非灯丝上,所以灯丝随着时间推移而变细。最后,灯丝某个位置就会因为钨过少而断裂, 此時 灯泡就无法工作了。

 

卤素灯灯泡内有一种含有卤素的气体。卤素气体有利于卤素再生循环,也就是说,卤素将蒸发的钨颗粒重新送回灯丝,而不是让它沉淀到灯泡壁上。通过将钨返回至灯丝而非灯泡壁上,这样就推迟了灯丝断裂的时间。虽然卤素循环可以显著增加灯泡的使用寿命,但是不能使灯丝永远不断,因为卤素不能将钨颗粒送回灯丝特定的位置上,以避免任何位置因为缺少钨而断裂。

 

为了避免卤素灯和 HIR 灯由于不必要的自身原因缩短使用寿命的问题,请遵守以下简单的指引,您将从中受益匪浅。

l  在安装或对准的时候,避免敲击、摇动或粗暴操作

l  灯泡在亮着的时候非常热,不應該接触来加以调整或对准。

 

The term "dichroic" applies to GE MR16 lamps specifically, not in general to low-voltage halogen lighting. For the GE MR16 lamp, dichroic describes the type of coating on the reflectors. These coatings can also be described as "multi-layer interference films". They are made up of dozens of layers of thin materials that have the unusual property of selectively reflecting or transmitting certain wavelengths of visible light, IR, and UV. Such dichroic coatings have been used since the 1960s to reduce the heat in the beam of certain reflector lamps (GE calls them "Cool-Beam" lamps). MR16 ConstantColor™ coatings are more sophisticated since they not only reduce the heat in the projected beam (up to 66%), but also absorb UV and control the color and amount of the light from both the front and back of the lamp - keeping it constant over the life of the lamp. The coatings are also very durable and will not flake off or deteriorate as the lamp burns.

 

没有玻璃罩的 MR 16 灯泡 只能用于封闭的灯具中(保证所有灯泡部件在封闭的灯具中),因为所有 MR16 灯丝管是加压的 万一灯丝管破裂,封闭灯具将保证所有玻璃碎片不会 造成伤害 。带有 封闭 玻璃罩的 MR 16 灯泡可以在开放式灯具中使用,因为玻璃罩可以控制灯丝管破裂的碎片 不會溅射

 

一般情况下, PAR 系列通常包括聚光灯和泛光灯,由较薄的玻璃及非耐热玻璃制成,大多使用于户外用途。然而,如果冷水滴落或溅落到灯泡热玻璃上,PAR 灯泡很容易破裂。所以,很多聚光灯和泛光灯的使用说明中包含警示性说明,如果水溅落或滴落到温热的玻璃上,玻璃可能会破裂。如果您将这种灯泡用于户外用途,应该安装防止水到玻璃上的户外灯具。

 

钨丝灯,例如卤素灯和白炽灯,释放最低限度的紫外线。 GE ConstantColor® MR16 灯泡采用特殊适应制作,具有过滤几乎所有光谱中紫外线的性能。

 

红外线卤素 PAR 灯的涂层采用氧化钽和氧化硅 材料 。只涂于灯泡的外部。

 

带有分色涂层 GE ConstantColor™ 灯和卤素红外灯是两种降低红外辐射的最佳卤素灯。 卤素红外灯的灯丝管上有能够将红外重新导向灯丝的涂层,这样不但使发出的光线明亮而且热量更低。再就 MR 16 ConstantColor™ 灯而言,特殊的分色反射涂层将三分之二的红外辐射重新导向灯泡底部,因此將热量低了66%

 

MR11s and MR16s are a directional light source, and are only measured by center beam candle power, which is the average amount of luminous intensity, or how bright the light is, at the center of the beam.

 

HIR 代表卤素红外灯。 GE 的一些卤素灯,在灯丝管涂 了红外涂层。这种多层涂层不仅吸收紫外线,而且可以将红外(热)导回至灯丝。通过将红外导回至灯丝,灯泡利用相同的能量,产生更多的光线,这种灯泡产生的热量比标准卤素灯减少。所以 HIR 通过以下方式节省费用:

l  降低紫外线輻射

l  减少能源成本

l  减轻A/C荷载

l 有效減少被照物品的褪色

荧光灯需要镇流器,因为其利用气体产生光线,当气体被电源激活,它放射出肉眼看不见的紫外线,集中在荧光灯内部的白色涂层(荧光粉)将紫外线转化为我们看到的光线。(因为荧光灯不是利用热能来产生光线,所以与常规白炽灯相比,其更能有效节能。)

 

气体、电流以及荧光粉组合能有效地产生光线,如果没有调节流入灯泡电流的物质,光线将继续增强,直到灯泡停止工作。

 

 

灯泡制造商一般会尽力减少一般用途灯具中的紫外线辐射。

 

标准荧光灯中的紫外线,例如家庭、办公室或学校,并不存在危险,不会造成重大的健康问题。事实上,美国电气制造商协会的一份报告探讨了此主题相关的更多细节。其中援引了一个确定在荧光灯下办公室内紫外线辐射量的研究,在典型办公室中,每天八小时的光照水平大于等于在华盛顿一个晴朗七月的一天在户外暴晒一分钟。

 

某些用途要求不能有紫外线。为了完全消除紫外线,我们在土建过程中使用CovRguard®防爆环保灯。如果没有CovRguard®,可以使用紫外线套管或过滤器来减少紫外线。

 

 

建议使用防穿刺手套清理碎玻璃。在捡起所有的大碎片之后,彻底清扫,以去除任何残留的玻璃和荧光粉渣。如果有必要,对此区域进行通风,消除任何残余的细鳞灰尘。在处理完破损的灯泡后,彻底清洗手部和脸部。偶然性接触到灯内物质是无害的。制作荧光灯过程中使用的基本荧光体是一种相对惰性的磷酸盐。灯泡中的汞含量不会造成空气中显著的汞含量,因为大多数汞元素停留在荧光粉的表面。未发现接触破碎的荧光灯灯管而对健康产生不利的影响。

 

“开灯或关灯”是照明中的一个常见问题。因为打开家庭用灯泡没有任何经济性,所以答案是“在不使用的情况下,把灯关掉”。使用电灯的费用是开灯状态下消耗的瓦数,所以一般答案是把灯关掉。

 

高强度气体放电灯(很少用于家庭)和荧光灯的操作需求不同。如果使用荧光灯,一般原则是把灯关掉,除非您在15分钟之内还要使用。频繁循环,在较短时间内开关灯,例如壁橱的应用,可能会减少荧光灯的使用寿命。

 

Audible noise from a fluorescent light is likely due to a loose or faulty ballast. The ballast is an electrical device inside the lighting fixture that supplies the proper starting and operating power to the lamp.

Sometimes, changing a lamp loosens the ballast mounting or other parts of the fixture and the slight vibration from the ballast during normal operation causes a buzzing or hum. The volume of the sound may change - louder or softer - as the fixture warms up. You might try tightening any screws or loose fixture parts to see if this alleviates the noise problem. Checking the ballast mounting screws is a little more complicated since the fixture has to be opened, but that would be the next step.

Be sure that anyone servicing a lamp, ballast, or fixture first turns off the electricity to avoid the chance of electrical shock.

Noise can also be an indication that the ballast is about to fail. Ballasts normally last 10-20 years, but often become noisy just before they fail. If the light goes out and then comes back on unexpectedly after initially operating for a while, it means that a thermal switch inside the ballast has opened and closed - another indication that the ballast is at its end-of-life.

If the ballast needs replacing, inquire about an electronic replacement unit. Electronic ballasts are inherently quieter than older electromagnetic designs.

 

Yes, only if the fluorescent light is using a dimmable ballast. Any time a dimmable ballast is used, a compatible dimming switch needs to be installed. The ballast manufacturer can provide a list of compatible switches.

 

The germicidal wavelength is short. Wavelengths shorter than 300nm are generally most effective for killing bacteria. The peak emission of the GE Germicidal lamps is 254nm.

 

About 90% of all energy emitted by tungsten filaments (including those in halogen lamps) is infrared, or radiant heat. The way to decrease heat from your fixtures is to use lower wattage lamps, or to use compact fluorescent bulbs.

The common types and colors of fluorescent lamps radiate an estimated 30% of their energy in the infrared range -"principally far infrared (wavelengths beyond 5000 nm)". More information is included in "The IESNA Lighting Handbook" by the Illuminating Engineering Society.

 

家庭和办公室使用的常规荧光灯不会产生有害数量的紫外线。大多数光源,包括荧光灯,释放少量的紫外线,但是荧光灯产生的紫外线远低于自然光产生的紫外线。(紫外线射线是可以造成晒伤和皮肤损伤的光线波长。)

 

您的安全对我们很重要;这就是为什么对于我们设计用于一般公共用途的灯泡,我们尽量减少紫外线的释放量。

 

如果您正在寻找用于特别敏感领域的低紫外线灯泡,试试我们的Saf-T-Gard® 灯泡。它能锁住大部分的紫外线辐射,并且是防爆环保型的。

 

CovRguard Saf-T-Gard lamps offer extraordinary protection with minimum light loss, block most ultraviolet light emissions, and meet FDA, NSF, and OSHA standards, keeping your surroundings bright and protected.

The new incandescent lamps utilize a coating for breakage protection, and offer superior energy-efficient and an outstanding quality of light for whatever the application. The fluorescent lamps have a polycarbonate coating. Both coatings help contain the glass in the event of breakage protecting the area from flying glass.

 

Blacklight lamps emit light in the 350-400 nanometer region of the spectrum. That band is within the UV-A region of the spectrum that is from 315-400 nanometers.

GE manufactures the following blacklight lamps:

  • F15T8/BL
  • F4T5
  • F20T12
  • F40/U3 (U-tube)
  • F40
All five of the lamps listed above come in Blacklight (BL) or Blacklight Blue (BLB) types. The BL type emits both visible light and UV; you need to wear protection for your eyes and skin to avoid irritation. The BLB type is made of special glass that filters out most of the visible light and passes UV-A. Under normal conditions, BLB lamps are safe, although if you are going to be exposed for prolonged periods of time, consider wearing eye and skin protection. BLBs are classified as Risk Group 1 per the ANSI/IESNA RP-27.3-96. (1997 Recommended Practice for Photobiological Safety for Lamps and Lamp Systems: General Requirements). This category is referred to as "low risk" where "the lamp does not pose any photobiological hazard due to normal behavioral limitations on exposure."

 

Please refer to our Lamp Disposal page. In most states, fluorescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs used at home can be disposed of in the same way as regular light bulbs. While all fluorescent bulbs contain a trace amount of mercury, the quantity is so minute that household disposal is not regulated by federal standards (established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency).

However, if you are disposing many fluorescent lamps you should know that because they contain mercury they are classified as hazardous waste unless:

1. You, as the end user, generate less than 100kg of hazardous waste per month (approx. 360 4' T12 lamps)

OR

2. The lamps pass the EPA Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) Test.

If the lamps meet these criteria and your state's regulation on TCLP is not stricter than the EPA's regulation, the lamps can be disposed of the same way as normal waste. However, if the lamps do not meet the criteria to be classified as normal waste, they will need to be either recycled by a lamp recycler or disposed under the hazardous waste guidelines of your state.

GE Ecolux® lamps pass federal TCLP regulations and therefore, by federal standards, are not considered hazardous waste. However, you should check with your state regulations to determine if they are stricter than the federal regulations. Other non-Ecolux lamps are not consistently TCLP-compliant.

Look for Ecolux lamps in the fluorescent section of our Product Catalog.

 

因为与白炽灯相比,荧光灯的使用寿命很长,所以最终光线亮度(流明输出)将开始下降。

 

正因为如此,荧光灯具有初始流明和平均流明输出。平均流明输出在灯管40%的使用寿命时测量。

 

注:装饰性或彩色灯管不进行流明测量,因为他们不考虑作为主要灯源,只是装饰用灯。

CFL
 

请务必检查灯具包装,确定其中是否说明该灯适用于安装电子计时器或光电管。一些电子计时器包含不能与紧凑型灯管兼容的部件;将这些灯泡用于非兼容产品将会缩短灯泡的使用寿命。为了确定电子计时器是否与紧凑型荧光灯兼容,可以与电子计时器的生产商核查。

 

紧凑型荧光灯泡一般不可以用于嵌入式封闭灯具中,由于嵌入式灯具(例如,遮盖在灯泡上的天花板嵌入灯)产生的温度太高,不能使用紧凑型荧光灯。

 

许多紧凑型荧光灯都可以用于户外的封闭灯具中。检查灯或包装,确定是否允许户外使用,并确认产品使用区域的最低运行温度。

如果灯泡或包装上没有可以用于户外的说明,那么请勿在户外或密闭灯具中使用。

 

在调光开关上使用紧凑型荧光灯,您必须购买专门用于调光器的灯泡(检查包装上的说明)。请勿将不可调光的紧凑型荧光灯用于调光器或可调光灯具。

 

Compact fluorescent light bulbs work best if they are left on for over 15 minutes each time they are turned on. These types of lamps can take up to 3 minutes to warm-up. Warm-up will probably not be noticeable from a user stand point, but the lamp needs to warm-up in order to reach the point of most efficient operation. Frequently switching them on and off will shorten the life of the product. If the life of the lamp is shortened significantly, you will not reap the financial benefits (includes energy & life of lamp), that are common to CFL lamps.

 

目前,不推荐将紧凑型节能灯用于振动环境。振动将使紧凑型荧光灯中的电子元件发生故障。

 

荧光灯含有汞元素。汞在大气压力下是银色液体,容易形成汞球。汞是有害物质。当灯泡打破之后,最好的办法是带上耐化学腐蚀手套进行清理。手套可以由乙烯树脂、橡胶、 PVC 或氯丁橡胶制成。您在超市购买的家用清洁手套就足以满足这一用途。手套可以保护您的皮肤不会吸收汞,或者被玻璃割伤。整个灯泡可以像普通垃圾一样处理,因为汞含量很少。然而,以供未来参考,对于大量需要处理的灯泡,您必须遵守您所在区域对含汞灯泡的处理规定。

 

启动时,灯光颜色的变化是荧光激活的结果。荧光粉是灯泡内部的涂层,当灯泡通电后,荧光粉发热产生 光的效果。不同的荧光粉组合产生不同的颜色,可能会有显著不同的响应时间。这种不同就是为什么灯泡启动后有时是粉色或紫色的原因。

 

家庭和办公室使用的常规荧光灯不会产生有害数量的紫外线。大多数光源,包括荧光灯,释放少量的紫外线,但是荧光灯产生的紫外线远低于自然光产生的紫外线。(紫外线射线是可以造成晒伤和皮肤损伤的光线波长。)

 

您的安全对我们很重要;这就是为什么对于我们设计用于一般公共用途的灯泡,我们尽量减少紫外线的释放量。

 

如果您正在寻找用于特别敏感领域的低紫外线灯泡,试试我们的Saf-T-Gard® 灯泡。它能锁住大部分的紫外线辐射,并且是防爆环保型的。

 

荧光灯(包括紧凑型荧光灯)比常规灯泡更节省能源,因为他们产生光线的方法不同。常规灯泡(也成为白炽灯)通过加热灯泡内部的灯丝来产生光线;热量使灯丝白热化,产生您看到的光。利用热量产生光线的白炽灯浪费了很多的能量。相反,荧光灯由放电产生的紫外辐射光子激发荧光粉而发光。因为荧光灯不是利用热量来产生光线,所以他们比常规白炽灯更节能。

 

因为普通(白炽灯)灯泡利用热量产生光线,而荧光灯采用完全不同的方法产生光线,这种方法更节能,事实上,约节省 4-6 倍的能量。也就是说,如果您买一个 15 瓦的紧凑型荧光灯,它产生的光线与 60 瓦的常规白炽灯相同。再加上荧光灯寿命是普通灯泡的三倍,同样的流明最多节省 2/3 3/4 的电量。


 

因为白炽灯和卤素灯通过热产生光,所以大约 90% 的能量以热能形式释放(也 为红外辐射)。为了减少普通白炽灯和卤素灯散发出的热量,可以使用较低瓦数的灯泡(比如 60 瓦,而非100瓦)。

 

 

荧光灯产生光的方式完全不同。不管是节能灯还是荧光灯管都含有一种气体,当被电流激发,撞击荧光灯内部的涂层发出光线(这样就比白炽灯泡更节能)家庭使用的荧光灯只有约30%的能量以热能形式释放,所以工作溫度更低

 

ENERGY STAR® is a voluntary partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, product manufacturers, local utilities, and retailers.

British Thermal Units (BTUs) are the measurement of heat output. One BTU is the heat that will raise the temperature of one pound of water by one degree Fahrenheit. It is approximately the amount of heat generated by burning one blue-tip kitchen match. There are approximately 3.4 BTUs per watt per hour. High bulb temperature usually does not affect the life of the lamp unless the temperature is extreme. The filament of an incandescent lamp operates at a very high temperature (nearly 4750 degrees Fahrenheit for a 200-watt standard lamp). An increase of a few hundred degrees in bulb temperature does not noticeably increase the filament temperature, and there is practically no effect on the lamp life or light output. Glass in most general service bulbs withstands 700 degrees Fahrenheit safely.

色温(或相关色温, CCT )是一个数字,显示白色光源的黄度或蓝度。通过开尔文测量, CCT 代表白炽灯物体(例如灯丝)模仿灯的颜色必须达到的温度。黄白色光源,就像白炽灯,拥有较低的色温,范围是 2700K-3000K ;白色和蓝白色光源,例如冷白( 4100K )和自然日光( 6000K ),拥有较高的色温。色温越高,光线越白或越蓝。

 

更多有关色温的信息,请访问网站中选择最佳色彩灯管部分。

 

效能是一个用来描述照明产品效率的术语。一般通过 LPW 或者每瓦流明来测量。为了确定灯泡的效能,可以用消耗的瓦数除以流明输出。例如, 60 瓦的柔光灯的流明是 840 ,其效能是 14 LPW

 

灯光的质量是由光源色温和显色指数之间的关系决定的。

 

色温是指光源产生的外观。色温越高,颜色越冷。

 

通常情况下,2000K -3000K的色温产生温暖(黄色)的外观;4000K以上的外观是低温(蓝色)。3000K-4000K之间是中间色温。

 

显色指数(CRI)衡量出光源自然地显示颜色的能力,基于0-100的刻度。一般情况下,CRI高(80-100)的光源比较低CRI的光源让人们和物体看起来更好。

 

因为与白炽灯相比,荧光灯的使用寿命很长,所以最终光线亮度(流明输出)将开始下降。

 

正因为如此,荧光灯具有初始流明和平均流明输出。平均流明输出在灯管40%的使用寿命时测量。

 

注:装饰性或彩色灯管不进行流明测量,因为他们不考虑作为主要灯源,只是装饰用灯。

 

灯泡的形成决定了最大直径,用八分之一英尺表示。例如, R40 最大直径为 40 倍的八分之一英尺,也就是 5 英寸。

 

下面的图表可以帮助您迅速进行转换。

A footcandle is unit of illuminance or light falling onto a surface. It stands for the light level on a surface one foot from a standard candle. One footcandle is equal to one lumen per square foot.

To calculate the footcandles of a lamp, divide the lamp's lumens square footage of the room. The lumen rating is usually listed on the lamp package. It's a lot easier (and probably more precise) to just take a reading with light meter.

 

Polychlorinated biphenyls, or PCBs, are a group of industrial chemicals that were widely used before 1979 as insulators in electrical equipment. Use and disposal of PCBs is federally regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Toxic Substances and Control Act (TSCA).

 

All high-power-factor fluorescent lamp ballasts manufactured by GE Lighting prior to May 1977 include a small metal capacitor (an electronic device used to store an electrical charge) that contains approximately 10 grams of PCB fluid. The capacitors in our fluorescent lamp ballasts manufactured after January 1, 1979, do not contain PCBs. Ballasts manufactured between May 1977 and January 1, 1979, may include either type of capacitor.

To find out if your GE Lighting ballast contains PCBs,

  • Download the Date of Manufacture Codes chart.
  • Look for the two-letter date code that's stamped into the mounting feet at one end of the fluorescent ballast.
  • Find the ballast's two-letter code on the chart to find the month and year of manufacture.
Ballasts manufactured after January 1, 1979, do not contain PCBs. If the ballast was manufactured between May 1977 and January 1, 1979, look additionally for the catalog number on the label attached to the top of the ballast. If the catalog number contains a "W," the ballast does NOT contain PCBs. (Ballasts manufactured after January 1, 1979, have "No PCB" printed on the label.)

 

PCB-containing ballasts may be restricted from disposal in a normal landfill. If disposal is restricted, please go to www.lamprecycle.org for a list of national lamp and ballast recyclers. Under federal regulations, leaking PCB-containing ballasts may not be disposed of in a landfill; they must be disposed of or recycled in an approved facility.

Download additional information about disposing of PCB-containing ballasts.

 

Please refer to our state disposal policies page. In most states, fluorescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs used at home can be disposed of in the same way as regular light bulbs. While all fluorescent bulbs contain a trace amount of mercury, the quantity is so minute that disposal is not regulated by federal standards (established by the EPA, the Environmental Protection Agency).

However, if you are disposing many fluorescent lamps you should know that because they contain mercury they are classified as hazardous waste unless:

1. You, as the end user, generate less than 100kg of hazardous waste per month (approx. 360 4' T12 lamps)

OR

2. The lamps pass the EPA Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure (TCLP) Test.

If the lamps meet these criteria and your state's regulation on TCLP is not stricter than the EPA's regulation, the lamps can be disposed in the same way as normal waste. However, if the lamps do not meet the criteria to be classified as normal waste, they will need to be either recycled by a lamp recycler or disposed under the hazardous waste guidelines of your state.

GE Ecolux® lamps pass federal TCLP regulations and therefore, by federal standards, are not considered hazardous waste. However, you should check with your state regulations to determine if they are stricter than the federal regulations. Other non-Ecolux lamps are not consistently TCLP-compliant.

Look for Ecolux lamps in the fluorescent section of our Product Catalog.

 

ENERGY STAR® is a voluntary partnership between the U.S. Department of Energy, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, product manufacturers, local utilities, and retailers. Partners help promote energy efficient products by labeling them with the ENERGY STAR logo and educating consumers about the unique benefits of energy efficient products. ENERGY STAR-labeled products use less energy than other products, save you money on utility bills, and help protect the environment.

Many compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) are ENERGY STAR labeled because they are energy-efficient alternatives to standard incandescent lamps. CFLs use approximately 75% less energy than a standard incandescent bulb and can last many times longer. The super efficient performance of CFLs can save consumers at least $25 in energy costs over the life of each CFL that replaces an incandescent bulb.*

You can find out more about ENERGY STAR lighting products from GE by visiting our Environmental Information Center.

*Based on a minimum life of 6,000 hours at $0.10 kWh.

 

Please refer to our Lamp Disposal page. In most states, fluorescent and compact fluorescent light bulbs used at home can be disposed of in the same way as regular light bulbs. While all fluorescent bulbs contain a trace amount of mercury, the quantity is so minute that household disposal is not regulated by federal standards (established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency).

However, if you are disposing many fluorescent lamps you should know that because they contain mercury they are classified as hazardous waste unless:

1. You, as the end user, generate less than 100kg of hazardous waste per month (approx. 360 4' T12 lamps)

大多数用厚纸板包装的商业照明产品可以在大部分具有回收计划的区域进行回收。

 

有一些包装包含塑料外壳或泡罩包装”由聚氯乙烯(PVC)制成。PVC具有3SPI树脂识别代码(也称为塑料容器代码;这是大家平时可以在循环三角里面看到的数字,虽然不会印在包装上)。这种包装可以由接受这一代码的回收中心进行回收。

 

“开灯或关灯”是照明中的一个常见问题。因为打开家庭用灯泡没有任何经济性,所以答案是“在不使用的情况下,把灯关掉”。使用电灯的费用是开灯状态下消耗的瓦数,所以一般答案是把灯关掉。

 

高强度气体放电灯(很少用于家庭)和荧光灯的操作需求不同。如果使用荧光灯,一般原则是把灯关掉,除非您在15分钟之内还要使用。频繁循环,在较短时间内开关灯,例如壁橱的应用,可能会减少荧光灯的使用寿命。

 

Some cities have regulations concerning the amount of light that can be used after dark, commonly referred to as a Dark Sky Ordinance. Any consumer who is requesting assistance to comply with such an ordinance will need to contact the fixture manufacturer. Dark Sky Ordinance regulation concerns the amount of light output, spill-over/ambient light, etc. and is determined by the reflective and design characteristics of the fixture. This obviously will vary for different fixtures and GE does not maintain this information. Decorative lamps are often used in porch lights. Since these are considered "optional use" lamps, they are not rated for lumen output.

GE has been working with the International Dark-Sky Association (IDA) since the inception of the organization and several of GE employees are IDA members. In fact, a GE retiree is a member of the IDA Board.

GE has a full line of energy-efficient shielded and cut-off lighting equipment and, of course, the appropriate light sources for that equipment.

GE's overall approach has traditionally been to develop and promote equipment and designs for high quality outdoor lighting. That means lighting, which is energy efficient, economical, long lasting, and puts the appropriate amount of light where it is needed with a minimum of stray and wasted light.

Each year, GE sponsors the GE Edison Award, which recognizes high-quality lighting designs and the lighting designers involved. The winners are featured in GE advertising and promotional material for a year. Some of these designs have been used in the IDA Slide Sets as examples of astronomy-friendly lighting practice.

However, even the best lighting equipment can be used incorrectly, misaimed or operated in an inefficient manner.

Areas of particular concern are:

  • The continued use of non-cutoff roadway lighting equipment
  • Poorly-shielded sports lighting (especially municipal tennis, football, soccer and baseball installations)
  • Lighting which is unswitched or operates when it is not needed
  • Service station "over" lighting

 

不。 GE 不生产用于爬行动物、鱼类和植物健康的 UV-B 灯。

 

为了提高水族箱和玻璃容器内的外观,GE生产F40PL/AQ设施和水族馆宽光谱灯。这种灯在蓝色和红色区域有大量释放,其范围为UV-A315 nm 400 nm)以及接近IR700 nm 800 nm)。UV-B的量极少。

灯泡制造商一般会尽力减少一般用途灯具中的紫外线辐射。

 

标准荧光灯中的紫外线,例如家庭、办公室或学校,并不存在危险,不会造成重大的健康问题。事实上,美国电气制造商协会的一份报告探讨了此主题相关的更多细节。其中援引了一个确定在荧光灯下办公室内紫外线辐射量的研究,在典型办公室中,每天八小时的光照水平大于等于在华盛顿一个晴朗七月的一天在户外暴晒一分钟。

 

某些用途要求不能有紫外线。为了完全消除紫外线,我们在土建过程中使用CovRguard®防爆环保灯。如果没有CovRguard®,可以使用紫外线套管或过滤器来减少紫外线。

 

 

家庭和办公室使用的常规荧光灯不会产生有害数量的紫外线。大多数光源,包括荧光灯,释放少量的紫外线,但是荧光灯产生的紫外线远低于自然光产生的紫外线。(紫外线射线是可以造成晒伤和皮肤损伤的光线波长。)

 

您的安全对我们很重要;这就是为什么对于我们设计用于一般公共用途的灯泡,我们尽量减少紫外线的释放量。

 

如果您正在寻找用于特别敏感领域的低紫外线灯泡,试试我们的Saf-T-Gard® 灯泡。它能锁住大部分的紫外线辐射,并且是防爆环保型的。

 

钨丝灯,例如卤素灯和白炽灯,释放最低限度的紫外线。 GE ConstantColor® MR16 灯泡采用特殊适应制作,具有过滤几乎所有光谱中紫外线的性能。

 

不是。 与其他可以在很多地方,例如办公楼找到的标准荧光灯相比, 荧光灯的 UVA UVB 输出,特别是日光灯非常少。

 

GE 生产的唯一全光谱灯泡是在可视光范围内。他们不属于自然阳光中发现的紫外线(不可见光)。

 

可视范围内全光谱灯泡的设计模拟太阳光的色彩范围。这些包括日光灯、色度50 色度75荧光灯。可视光的波长范围在400-700纳米之间,发出一些紫外线,但是量远低于日光和阳光,甚至是玻璃过滤之后的紫外线。所有这些光线是无害的。这就是正常、每天使用灯泡(白炽灯和荧光灯)的光线范围。

 

出于实用性目的的考虑,紫外线辐射是在100-380纳米范围内的任何辐射能量。其超出了光谱的蓝色或紫色区域,是眼睛看不到的,就像听不见的超声波。

 

白炽灯不是紫外线的光源,一般不需要紫外线过滤器。然而,白炽灯确实产生热量(紫外线辐射或IR),当照射植物或材料的时候,应该考虑其干燥伤害。

 

我们生产的唯一杀菌灯(UVC 100-280M)和黑光灯/蓝黑光灯(315-400NM)。我们不生产用作医疗目的或晒黑床的UVB灯。

 

您可以在我们网站的工具区获得更多信息以及光谱分布曲线。

 

GE 没有公布灯泡表面的温度,因为有很多影响灯壁温度的因素,例如:


l  房间的环境温度

l  周围空气是静止的或是流动的(风、风扇、空调等),以及流动的速度

l  嵌入式的具体特征,例如其阻碍、反射、绝缘和透气性
