Energy Used

A rating, expressed in watts, to indicate the rate at which a lamp consumes energy. Also known as wattage value.
 
Energy Used
18 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 (E26)

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)
4.7

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)
25000

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)
820

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
82

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

Comments about Ushio 75 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, 18 Watt, Frosted PAR38 Cold Cathode Lamp:

This bulb's warm up period seems significantly longer than a standard cfl. I orrigionally intended to put these in my kitchen which has 75 watt halogens. The bulbs didn't fit in the recessed cans. This bulb also barely dims at all. I'd say it dims from 100% to maybe 75% at the lowest. I ended up putting the bulbs in my basement which has 65 watt can lights and a few 16 watt cfls. I can't tell the difference between this bulb and the others after they are warmed up. If you put them in a fixture that fits them, has few on/off cycles, and has either 65 watt incandescents or 60 watt halogens this could be a fine solution. (Bare in mind that each bulb is [$], doesn't last all that much longer than a standard cfl, and doesn't fit in some fixtures)

  • Q:

    How long is the neck of this bulb. Can I use this bulb in my ceiling fixture? How do the lumens compare to the traditional 75 watt bulb this would replace in my ceiling fixture?

      A:

      The neck of the bulb is approximately 3 1/2" in length. This is made to replace a PAR38 halogen bulb and should fit into most fixtures that currently have a PAR38 bulb. The lumens for this bulb are less than most 75W PAR lamps however; the manufacturer has tested the product and they have determined the light output is equivalent to a 75-watt incandescent bulb.

    • A:

      This has less lumens than a 75 watt halogen. I'm not sure about how it would compare to an incandescent. (halogens are more efficient than incandescents).

      As far as the length, I'm not sure exactly. But these are way wider than a 75 watt halogen. They wouldn't fit in my fixture
