PAR LED bulbs stand out due to their exceptional brightness, efficiency, and range of applications.
Understanding PAR LED Bulbs
What are PAR LED Bulbs?
PAR stands for Parabolic Aluminized Reflector. PAR LED bulbs are specially designed LED bulbs that have a reflective housing to focus light into a tight beam. They are excellent for applications where directed or focused light is needed.
Anatomy of a PAR LED Bulb
PAR LED bulbs consist of multiple LEDs housed inside a reflective casing. The casing is designed to focus the light produced by the LEDs into a concentrated beam.
DIfferent PAR bulb models
There are many different PAR models in the market. What is the difference?
What Does the Number After PAR Mean?
The number on a LED PAR Bulb refers to the diameter of the lamp (not the base size) measured in terms by eighths of an inch. The PAR number can be easily converted to inches by multiplying the PAR number x 1/8 (0,125).
So PAR20 bulb, has a diameter of 20 x 1/8ths or 2,5 inches or 63,5mm
. The dimensions for the most common PAR Bulbs are below:
PAR Bulb Number
2 inches (50mm)
2,5 inches (63,5mm)
3,75 inches (95mm)
4,5 inches (112,5mm)
Key Features and Specifications
Luminosity and Beam Angles
PAR LED bulbs are known for high luminosity and are available in various beam angles from narrow spotlights to broader floodlights.
Currently we have only most popular PAR20 models witth 45 degrees light beam in stock.
LED PAR bulbs are more energy-efficient than traditional halogen PAR bulbs and have a much lower power consumption for the same amount of light.
Durability and Lifespan
With a typical lifespan of around 25,000 to 50,000 hours, our PAR LED bulbs last significantly longer than their halogen counterparts.
Applications and Use Cases
In homes, PAR LED bulbs are often used for task lighting, accent lighting, and outdoor lighting due to their directional capabilities.
In commercial settings, they are commonly used in retail displays, theaters, and as spotlights in events.
PAR LED bulbs are also used in photography and videography for controlled lighting effects. These require very high CRI.
Installation and Maintenance
Ensure the fixture is compatible with the PAR LED bulb size and wattage. Turn off the power before changing bulbs, and secure the bulb firmly in its socket.
Maintenance and Troubleshooting
PAR LED bulbs require minimal maintenance. If a bulb isn’t working, check if it's securely installed or if the fixture is receiving power.
The energy efficiency of PAR LED bulbs can lead to significant energy savings and a reduction in electricity bills.
Reduction in Carbon Footprint
By using less energy, PAR LED bulbs help in reducing the carbon footprint and contribute to environmental conservation.
Integration with Smart Home Systems
PAR LED bulbs are increasingly being integrated with smart home systems for remote control and automation. We can make ZIGBEE PAR bubls if you need, but minimum is 500pcs.
