HID Light Bulb Shapes
HID shaped light bulbs Compared to fluorescent and incandescent lamps, HID lamps produce a large quantity of light from a relatively small bulb. HID lamps produce light by striking an electrical arc across tungsten electrodes housed inside a specially designed inner glass tube. This tube is filled with both gas and metals. The gas aids in the starting of the lamps. Then, the metals produce the light once they are heated to a point of evaporation. Standard high-pressure sodium lamps have the highest efficacy of all HID lamps, but they produce a yellowish light. High Pressure Sodium (HPS), Metal Halide, Mercury Vapor and Self-Ballasted Mercury Lamps are all high intensity discharge lamps (HID).
