How many lumens is a 100 watt metal halide?

How many lumens is a 100 watt metal halide?

9000 lumen
These 100 watt metal halide bulbs have a bright 9000 lumen output. They are medium base (E26), ED17 bulbs with an average life span of 12, 000 hours. Use in street lights, parking lot fixtures, perimeter lighting, and other commercial and industrial lighting applications.

How much do metal halide bulbs cost?

The typical 100W-equivalent LED light costs somewhere between $10 and $20. A 100W Metal Halide light costs somewhere between $10 and $30 per bulb depending on the specifications.

What are metal halide bulbs used for?

Uses. Metal-halide lamps are used for general lighting purposes both indoors and outdoors, such as commercial, industrial, and public spaces, parking lots, sports arenas, factories, and retail stores, as well as residential security lighting; automotive and specialty applications are further fields of usage.

Can you put a metal halide bulb in a regular light fixture?

Like fluorescent lights, metal halides require a ballast to provide high starting voltages and to regulate current inside the bulb during operation. This is why a metal halide bulb will not work in a standard household lighting fixture — aside from the fact that the larger E39 base will not fit.

How many lumens does a 1000 watt MH produce?

For each MH the lumen efficiency is almost 60 to 110 watts. So, a 1000 watt metal halide bulb can produce 50,000 lumens to 100,000 lumens. Similarly, a 400 watt bulb of metal halide produces almost 24,000 lumens to 44,000 lumens.

What is MH Growlight?

Metal Halide (MH) lamps typically emit a white colored light. Traditionally Metal Halide lamps have been used by indoor growers during the vegetative stage of plant growth. They are ideal for growing plants up to the flowering and fruit production stages because they mimic the spring/early summer seasonal sun.

How do metal halide lamps work?

To put it simply, metal halide technology works by passing an electrical arc through a mix of gasses, creating light. When the lamp is inactive, the mercury and metal halide salts are condensed inside the inner arc tube. Metal halide lighting features two electrodes –– one on each end of the inner arc tube.

How bright is 1000 watts?

A brand new 1000 watt metal halide bulb can produce between 60,000 and 110,000 lumens.
