Overdrive

Energy Used

A rating, expressed in watts, to indicate the rate at which a lamp consumes energy. Also known as wattage value.
 
Energy Used
23 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
R-40

Base

The end (or ends) of the lamp that fits into the socket.
 
Base
Medium (E26)

Diameter (in)

Diameter (in)
5

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)

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)
10000

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)
1200

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
84

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)
2700K

Bulb Technology

The technology implemented by the bulb, e.g. incandescent, halogen, LED

Traditional Bulbs Typically Dim from 0-100%, Dimmable CFL's Do Not.

Q & A

Overdrive brand DIMMABLE 23 Watt compact fluorescent reflector lamp. R40 size and shape replaces 100 Watt BR40 lamp and fits into the larger recessed lighting fixtures sometimes used in both homes and businesses. Warm white color and high color rendering mean you'll never know the difference, at least until you get your electric bill.

  • Outstanding energy efficiency - provides equivalent light to most 100 Watt incandescent BR40 lamps while using only 23 Watts of electricity

  • Outstanding life - 10,000 hour rated life is three to six times as long as most incandescent lamps

  • Outstanding value - replace your existing lamps with more energy efficient technology, at a competitive price

NOT RECOMMENDED for use in enclosed fixtures. Can be used with photo sensors and timers designed specifically for fluorescent usage.

Comments about Overdrive 100 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, 23 Watt, 120 Volt DIMMABLE R40 Warm White Compact Fluorescent Reflector.:

Don't know that the dimmable technology for cfl's is totally there yet. We've had several early failures on these bulbs, but those that last are great.

Best Uses

  • Stage spots

Comments about Overdrive 100 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, 23 Watt, 120 Volt DIMMABLE R40 Warm White Compact Fluorescent Reflector.:

Since the lights are high (25 - 35 feet) above the stage, they are difficult to change. Since the cfl's burn cooler and longer, we do not have to change as often. The 90 watt equivalent gives as much light as the 120 watt incandescent we are replacing once they warm up. You can see the helix in the light when they first come on, but not after they warm up.

  • Q:

    Is it dimmable or not? Does dimming it shorten the life span even if you use a lutron rated dimmer?

    • CUSTOMER CARE

      A:

      This bulb is dimmable. The life of the bulb should not be affected by dimming. If the bulb is being used with photocells or timers, this will affect the life of the bulb unless the controls are designed specifically for use with fluorescents bulbs.
