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
12

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
MR-16/L

Base

The end (or ends) of the lamp that fits into the socket.
 
Base
GU5.3

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 (°)
36

Class and Filament

A designation used to describe the shape or structure of the filament in an incandescent or halogen light bulb. Most commonly used for specialty products like rough service and antique replica lamps.

Diameter (in)

Light bulbs: a measurement of a bulb's width taken at the widest point of the bulb. Fixtures: the measurement across the widest point of a circular fixture.
 
Diameter (in)
2

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.
 
Length (in)
1.8

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)
2000

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).
 
Color Temperature (Kelvin)

Q & A

Bulbs.com brand MR16 halogen flood. 20 Watts for less intensity and lower light levels. 12 volts for low voltage systems. Low voltage means a smaller filament, for greater optical control.

  • Halogen lights provide brighter, whiter light than incandescents, while maintaining outstanding color rendering

  • Flood means 36º beam spread and a wider beam of light. Lamp can be closer and still light the area effectively

  • Dichroic reflector reflects visible light out the front while letting heat escape out the back, resulting in a cool beam of light

Glass lens - enclosed fixture not necessary

      Comments about 20 Watt, 12 Volt MR16 Halogen Flood BAB Bulb:

      these have a short life, 2000 hours. for about 10 cents more per bulb (or 5%) you can increase the life to 3000 hours (50%) with the Eiko brand. Also, we recently recvd a batch that all went out within a few days but came back on when touched. [...] whatever, i switched brands.
