How tubelights work
As early as 1926 the idea of the current fluorescent lamp was introduced by Edmund Germer. Nowadays, tubelights have a fluorescent substance coating on the inside, filled with noble gases such as mercury vapour. Gas discharge takes place at both ends, where the electrodes are. This causes the mercury vapour to give off invisible ultraviolet radiation, which is then transformed into visible light.
The tube shape
Just like LED bulbs and halogen bulbs, the tubelight is more energy-efficient than the traditional incandescent light bulb. That’s why many people go for the Lucide tube-shaped tubelight. And when you do, we offer a variety of options. For example, you can choose from a wide range of light colours. From extra warm white (up to 2700K) to neutral white light (3001K-4000K). The lumen number is related to this. The same diversity is available for the wattage reach and the energy label, offering the choice of energy label A or B.
Round tubelight types
In addition to the well-known tube shape, tubelights are also available at Lucide in a circular shape. And for these lights, too, we offer a similar diversity of options. The size of our round tubelights varies from 21.6 centimetres to the huge circumference of 40 centimetres. It also depends on the application which size and other options are right for your tubelight preferences. If you have any questions, or if you need more information: the Lucide team would gladly help you out. Our lighting experts can find the right tubelight for you in no time.
