    This Approved Method includes other technologies within the Metal Halide family including Ceramic Metal Halide and Pulse Start Metal Halide lamps. It addresses life testing of high intensity discharge lamps operated on auxiliary devices, either external or integrated, designed and certified to meet lamp industry standards and toler. A sodium-vapor lamp is a gas-discharge lamp that uses sodium in an excited state to produce light at a characteristic wavelength near nm.. Two varieties of such lamps exist: low pressure and high -pressure sodium lamps are highly efficient electrical light sources, but their yellow light restricts applications to outdoor lighting, such as street lamps, where they are widely used.

    Low and high-pressure sodium lights are found in parking lots and areas where security is important. The lights require up to 10 minutes to start and are best used when they can stay on for hours at a time. There are several differences between low and high-pressure sodium lights. Description: States the methods of test to be used for determining the characteristics of low pressure sodium vapour lamps of the integral type, both U-shaped and linear, operating on .

    For example, if the photopic luminance level is cd/m2 is then under a source with an S/P ratio like low pressure sodium (S/P of ) the equivalent mesopic luminance level would be cd/m2. If instead the source was a metal halide lamp with an S/P ratio of , then the mesopic luminance level would be cd/m2. This Philips bulb with ANSI code L72 uses 90 watts and volts. It has a BY22D base, and an average rated life of hours. It has a T21 lamp shape, and is an Lps 90 BULB. GE , Philips Brand: Philips.

The lamps are also physically large—about 4-feet long for the watt size—so light distribution from fixtures is less controllable.

High Pressure Sodium Lamps may be used in open luminaires except for item (LUT7/ RSC) and SOX Low Pressure Sodium, which must be operated in an enclosed fixture. Standard LUMALUX Standard LUMALUX lamps are known for high efficacy, long life, and reliability.

Lamps are avail-able from 35 to watts in medium base and 50 to File Size: KB. High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lamps are not sensitive to burning position.

From the General Electric Lamp catalogue (p ), the rated life is 24,+ hours, which means that at 24, hours the testing ended with two-thirds of the lamps still burning. Low Pressure Sodium light has a number of very unique properties arising from its spectral output, many of which make it technically the most suitable light source for road lighting and these are covered in detail on the next addition, the large physical size of the lamp means that it has a low surface luminance so it is less likely to give rise to glare, and the low operating.

Low pressure sodium lamps were invented first in by Arthur H. Compton at Westinghouse. The first lamp was a round bulb with two electrodes on each side. The solid sodium metal remained on the bottom center of the bulb.

When heated up the metal would vaporize and the lamp would glow yellow. This approved method is a guide developed for the measurement of solid state lighting (SSL) products.
