A rating, expressed in watts, to indicate the rate at which a lamp consumes energy. Also known as wattage value.
 
Energy Used
100 Watts

Volts

A measure of "electrical pressure" between two points. The voltage specification of an incandescent lamp is the electrical "pressure" required to drive it at its designed point. The "voltage" of a ballast (e.g. 120 V) refers to the line voltage coming from the power source and is connected to the ballast.
 
Volts
120

Bulb Shape

The description of the general appearance of a lamp/bulb consists of a letter(s) followed by a number. The letter indicates the shape of the bulb and the number relates to the diameter of the bulb in eighths of an inch. For example, a common household bulb is the A-19. The bulb is "A" shape and the diameter would be nineteen 8ths of an inch, or 2 3/8".
 
Bulb Shape
PAR-38

Base

The end (or ends) of the lamp that fits into the socket.
 
Base
Medium Skirted

Beam Spread (°)

The width of a light beam, expressed in degrees. The beam spread is often part of the ordering code for reflector lamps. For example, a 50PAR30/HIR/NFL25 is a 50-watt PAR30 narrow flood lamp with a beam spread of 25 degrees.
 
Beam Spread (°)
40

Length (in)

Also referred to as "Maximum Overall Length" (MOL). For light bulbs, it measures the length of a light bulb, from the top of the bulb to the bottom of the base or pins and is typically expressed in inches. For light fixtures and ballasts, it applies to the total horizontal length of the item.

Average Rated Life (hr)

A measurement of the average length of time, between first use and the point when 50% of the lamps tested have stopped functioning, , using an operating cycle of 3 hours on, 20 minutes off.
 
Average Rated Life (hr)
4200

Brightness (Lumens)

A rating of the inital light output of a bulb, rated after 100 hrs of operation. Lumens are a measure of how much light falls on one square foot of area, one foot away from the light source.
 
Brightness (Lumens)
2200

CRI

Color Rendering Index is an international system used to rate a lamp's ability to render object colors. The higher the CRI (based upon a 0-100 scale) the richer and more accurately colors generally appear. CRI differences among lamps are not usually visible to the eye unless the difference is more than 3-5 points.
 
CRI
100

Color Temperature (Kelvin)

An expression of the hue of the light emitted, measured in degrees Kelvin. Usually expressed by a four digit number followed by (k), such as 2700k. Higher temperatures indicate whiter, "cooler" colors, while lower temperatures indicate yellower, "warmer" colors. Some common Kelvin temperature benchmarks are 2700k (warm white), 3500k (neutral white), 4100k (cool white), 5000k (bright white), and 6500k (daylight).

        Comments about Philips 100 Watt, 120 Volt PAR38 Halogen Infrared Wide Flood:

        This is looking great so far. We have only had it a month, but the light is very bright, and just "white" enough. Much brighter than the standard 120W halogen floods (like Bulbrite). As long as it lasts over 4,000 hours as Philips claims, it will save us money versus using those shorter-life, 120W Halogen floods.

        One thing to note - brand-new bulbs have something that rattles in their bases. I called Philips to make sure our bulb wasn't broken, but they confirmed this bulb actiually is supposed to have something loose and rattley in its base! She didn't know why, however.

                    These bulbs are replacing 300 watt floods, with the same light output. Been in service for over a year and have not replaced any. Great energy saver.

                        At this time, I'm not aware of any IR Halogen PAR lamps that are over 100 watts of energy.

                        A:

                        The base on this bulb is a standard size screw base and measures approximately 1" in diameter. This base would fit a standard household socket.
