Tungsten Halogen - Reflector

Updated
20-IX-2014
Following the development of the Single-Ended tungsten halogen lamp, it became considerably easier to extend the domain of halogen lamps with new reflector types. At first these were offered for photographic and projection applications, but their superb optical efficacy, due to the compact filament design and the possibility to accurately align the filament at the focus of the optical system, later saw the range being extended to general lighting lamps.

Both non-directional as well as reflector halogen lamps continue to be popular. In the most professional applications the luminaire manufacturers often prefer to employ non-directional halogen capsules and to add value to their equipment by separating the optics from the lamp, however the reflector lamps with all optical control being integrated offer a low cost and easy solution for the wider base of luminaire manufacturers who do not have their own internal optical competencies. They also offer the advantage of factory-focussed optics with every lamp, with a clean and new reflective surface being provided at each lamp change.
