Abstract

Lighting Answers: High-wattage Compact Fluorescent Lamps introduces lighting specifiers to this new lamp type. Focusing on the use of high-wattage compact fluorescent lamps (HW-CFL) in high-ceiling retrofit applications, this report examines product characteristics such as light output, luminous efficacy, lamp life, color properties, thermal behavior, performance at different lamp orientations, starting profiles, and retrofit limitations. It also compares these characteristics to those of other common lamp types. In addition, the report lists HW-CFL products available on the North American market (at time of publication).
