In a day and age when the most familiar use of tungsten — the wire filament of an incandescent light bulb — continues to fade, why do we still talk about this gray-white metallic element? Tungsten is one of the so-called refractory metals, along with molybdenum, niobium, rhenium, and tantalum. These materials are known primarily for their high melting points. Tungsten has long served industry based on its unique properties — sometimes because of just one unique property, sometimes based on a combination.
The population is now deciding what kind of light source is best for their particular use. But because what the population desires is not necessarily what the government, pressured by lobby groups, wants, incandescent light sources are now a restricted import in many parts of the globe.
Despite the fact that a star such as our sun is our most abundant power source, far greater than any man made energy source and provides light energy in many forms of electromagnetic radiation from the visible to the invisible that can not only be utilised to power the industry, our homes as well as drive craft within our planet but can also take us or our probes to the outreaches of our solar system as well as other stars, we are made to feel guilty about using incandescent light sources but not about plasma displays or air conditioners!
Hence the reemergence of another alternative which haven't been banned, well not yet, as the envelope shape is not that of a GLS or other prohibited shape type. The light sources are generally reproduction squirrel cage and early carbon filament types which existed pre 's. While many are not exact copies e. One well known manufacturer is "Ferrowatt". Conveniently, they are available with a B22d or E27 base and designed for V.
However, most types on the market are V, so you do have a greater choice if you don't mind using a step down transformer or running two in series. As for the practicalities of using such expensive light sources, they are supposed to last between to hours depending on their source, so comparatively speaking the cost is divided from 1.
Switch on surge suppressors, dimmers or other voltage reduction devices would obviously extend this. They're probably best used in locations where the light source is not used for lengthy periods.
Colour temperature and light output is usually slightly lower than the previous GLS type, but the lower filament temperature does not necessarily mean a longer life. Hence the purpose of this evaluation which is to determine the lamp life hours of a Masson for Light Cat GWESC Type 29 which is a light source designed to be decorative with old time nostalgic appeal suitable for interior use, spurred on by the light globe ban.
The light source consists of a spherical clear glass envelope of approximately mm diameter that has a wall thickness that varies between 1.
Accelerated lifetime testing is used by light source manufacturers to determine the lamp life and test the quality of manufactured lamps. Table 1 lists all of the exponents in common use and their definitions. Exponents d, k, and t are the basic exponents because of the fact that life, lumen output, and current are physical quantities that are the most easily measured as functions of voltage applied to lamps, Table 2 also lists the relationship of these exponents to the first three.
Unfortunately, lamp life can only be measured statistically since each light source has a single life! A derivative of the above formula refer below is useful to determine the approximate life of incandescent light sources when subjected to an electrical tension other than the manufacturer rated electrical tension:- 1.
Unregulated AC power not recommended. No restrictions on derating gas-filled or vacuum 1 c lamps. Most sources claim that either AC or DC operation have the same life characteristics.
Disagreements in these statements have been expressed and there is no wish to debate it here. This is a clear warning not to take these exponents too seriously when working with operating, vs.
I have also calculated derivatives of the formulas below and throughout this document by solving for a specific variable that may be more useful in the following investigation, shown below as the last three equations from the list of equations. In Australia the official mains voltage use to be V, but that was "changed" in the year to V, except that for most installations nothing changed at all! Table 3 consumer voltages in Australia.
The nominal mid-range voltage is V. This range excludes situations arising from faults or voltage interruptions. Following an Energy Networks Association review in , Ausgrid commenced migration from a nominal voltage of V to V. Over time, the normal average Ausgrid network voltage will be reduced from around V to around V. Also note that the rated life hours to be deduced are based on average laboratory life6 when lamps are operated under stable environmental and electrical conditions.
Actual life will vary with the particular application. Where lamp replacement is difficult or you desire a longer lasting light source, light output can also be sacrificed for longer life. A reduction in the applied voltage will also increase lamp life significantly, or a dimmer could be used. Rated life as specified here is expressed in terms of hours. Rated life is calculated at design voltage, with alternating current, and under ideal laboratory conditions.
In actual use, lifetime may be shortened as a result of hostile environments such as shock, vibration, and extreme temperatures. Life may be substantially increased, by selecting an operating voltage less than the design voltage.
This decrease from design voltage will also result in a cooler filament providing increased resistance to shock and vibration. Lamp life is rated as the average life of a large group of lamps. Please note that this data pertains to all tungsten filament lamps: gas filled halogen and vacuum. In my laboratory I have Medium Frequency oscillators of 2. If the test lamps last considerably longer than the above estimated range of approximately 74 hours, when applied to a current of V DC, further tests such as lumen measurements, colour temperature measurements and filament measurement, can determine the correct specifications of the lamp and then appropriately the accelerated lamp life test can then be retested at another more suitable voltage verses time constraints if required.
Therefore five lamps were randomly selected, each one from a different box. The filters also protect the High voltage circuitry that provides voltages from 0 to volts DC. The output voltage is twice the input voltage.
Resister R1 is used to limit the initial high voltage and high currents. The capacitors C4 and C5 protect diodes from high voltage transients on the AC line as well as reduce inter carrier hum modulation of the R. F picked up by the mains. Exponent d for the integration equations 1.
Traditionally when squirrel cage incandescent lamps were manufactured from onwards they typically were of a high evacuation. In inert gas filled lamps were introduced in Australia. The lamp to be tested was manufactured in China and purchased in as a decorative light source so therefore to use the correct exponent, d, requires a test to determine whether the lamp is Gas filled with inert gas or in the tradition of the majority of squirrel cage configuration lamps, a vacuum.
The nitrogen and 2. Interestingly, the W BC Gas filled G95 from the previous example streamers typical of an itself fluoresces typical of with this 18MHz LV field will not illuminate from this power source as the voltage output is too low approx. Illuminating Engineering Society of North America.
Page The Alternatively if the lamp lasts considerably longer than the above estimated range of approximately 74 hours, further tests using the remainder three lamps, such as lumen measurements, colour temperature measurements and filament measurement would have to be used to determine the correct specifications of the lamp and then appropriately the accelerated lamp life test can then be retested at another more suitable voltage if required based on the new tests. Within the excel spread sheet equation 1.
QM KT 65 0. I strongly oppose the notion that one lamp failure should represent an unbiased estimate of the median life. As of the 4th of March, , of these lamps have been sold, many of these are probably for stock, so far three lamps have been reported faulty which includes Test lamp 1.
Based on these, 1. Lamp Experiment 2b-Test Lamp 2 Surpassed the predicted 74 hours based on a V hour rating on a power supply of VDC, as predicted by equation 1. The lamp was exercised for an equivalent of 25, hrs on a V rating at approximately V which in real time was 37 days, and the experiment stopped.
Therefore has far exceeded the 74 hour or 3. If the lamp failed at the time the experiment was stopped, the voltage rating based on the hr standard would have been, using equation 1. So obviously the stated rating is incorrect.
As Test Lamp 2 operated far longer than anticipated the exact characteristics of the lamp have to now be determined. Mathematical equations connecting incandescent lamp operating characteristics are used as computational tools, and as a means of discovering physical principals in the operational behaviour of these light sources.
The only equations which have been used to any great extent for these purposes are those relating to lamp exponents refer Table 1 and 2. The last time these types of lamps were manufactured was approximately 80 years ago! In a day and age where the standard incandescent GLS is extinct!

L, Lighting. All the above referenced figures are placed in Table 11, to obtain an average benchmark, data equivalent to the BS. The above referenced data will serve as a useful bench mark for proceeding experiments to determine the actual operating parameters for the test lamp, but it is necessary to correct this raw data to be equivalent to V rated vacuum lamp similar to our test lamp to be useful. Lamps for volts are more efficient, more economical, and less fragile than lamps designed for volts, and have the yet more important advantage that smaller wattage lamps can be manufactured.
The filament for higher voltage lamps is longer and therefore requires more support wires; more support wires mean lower efficacy due to conduction of energy from these additional supports. This is shown in Table 8 and 9. Table 9 Relative efficacy and life of various watt filament lamps, reference IES.

An arc lamp or arc light is a lamp that produces light by an electric arc also called a voltaic arc. The carbon arc light, which consists of an arc between carbon electrodes in air, invented by Humphry Davy in the first decade of the s, was the first practical electric light. The carbon arc lamp is now obsolete for most of these purposes, but it is still used as a source of high intensity ultraviolet light. The term is now used for gas discharge lamps , which produce light by an arc between metal electrodes through a gas in a glass bulb. The common fluorescent lamp is a low-pressure mercury arc lamp. An arc is the discharge that occurs when a gas is ionized. A high voltage is pulsed across the lamp to "ignite" or "strike" the arc, after which the discharge can be maintained at a lower voltage.
- Слово разница многозначно. Нам нужно число - значит, речь идет о математике. Еще одна игра слов мистера Танкадо: разница означает результат вычитания. - Верно! - сказал Беккер с экрана. - Может быть, у этих элементов разное число протонов или чего-то. Если вычесть… - Он прав, - сказал Джабба, повернувшись к Соши.
