Fluorescent lamps: Overview of professional knowledge

Fluorescent lamps are among the most widely used light sources in the world. Innovative lamps such as OSRAM LUMILUX are available in a wide range of shapes that offer an increasing number of design options. Some of the main advantages of fluorescent lamps include a high luminous efficiency, long service life, great reliability and their low energy consumption.

The large range of light colors for the lamps means they can be used in a wide range of applications both in the commercial sector and for private use. Fluorescent lamps generate three impressive white light colors: warm white, neutral white and daylight white. Tubular fluorescent lamps are usually operated with an electronic ballast (EB) and have a tube diameter of 16 or 26 millimeters.
