50PAR30 halogen light bulbs replace 75 or 65 watt incandescent lamps to save energy and give more light.

One of the PAR30 halogen bulbs that were ever developed with 50PAR30 that many people are familiar with today.  And the reason it's so popular is that it was made to replace a 75R30 lamp and which is less energy-efficient and doesn't give a light that people needed.  It may only be 50 watt, but the 50PAR30 definitely meets and exceeds the expectations of most people whether it's in their home or in a retail business.  It's interesting to note that these come in both short neck and long neck versions.  Although they have these different variations of length, they're really the same in their beam spread and every other aspect.  We carry this product in Sylvania and their trade name for this is Capsylite.  Sylvania 50PAR30 halogen light bulbs are a standard for many fixtures using halogen floods today.  They put a halogen capsule light in a small reflector to give a great amount of light output while delivering good beam control. The Sylvania has one of the widest varieties of 50PAR30 lamps including many wattages and all beam spreads not typically found in most hardware superstores.  Though many PAR30 bulbs are similar from different manufacturers, we do believe that the Sylvania product is superior for its beam patterns and light output.  As the original developer of halogen lighting technology, they excel in delivering a quality product for either commercial use or for your home.

Halogen bulbs are incandescent bulbs, just like the typical B and R30 flood bulbs we have been using in lamps for years and years. Halogen bulbs, however, are filled with a special gas that actually rebuilds the filament and provides a long life, more than normal incandescent bulbs. The 50PAR30 halogen light bulbs are flood shaped with the heavy, thick glass that is common to many medium to large sized halogen bulbs. PAR stands for parabolic aluminized reflector.  The PAR30 is a good direct replacement for the incandescent BR30 lamps that have been used in track lighting or small recessed cans over the past decades.  The typical wattage of the old BR30 is 65 or 75 watts, and so replacing them with a 50PAR30 will save 15 to 25 watts and deliver better lighting at the same time.  That's why halogen is used in energy saving lighting situations because they are more efficient in their light production.

The 50PAR30 halogen is a medium sized flood bulb and are not as large as the PAR38 halogen flood bulbs available. You can tell what kind of PAR lamp you have by measuring the distance across the widest point of the bulb. The number after 'PAR' represents the number of eighths of an inch the bulb diameter is. Therefore, 50PAR30 lamps are 3 3/4 inches across. PAR30 lamps are widely available from Sylvania, Westinghouse, and most other small bulb manufacturers. They have standard bases and are able to be used indoors or outdoors. This means they can be directly exposed to rain or snow and still function normally  and they do not need to be covered by a light fixture.  They also come in various beams threads which include narrow flood, spot, flood, narrow spot and even a wide flood for those applications where the ceiling or track lighting might be very low and you need to get a wider beam spread.

Whatever type of lighting need you have, we make sure that you get a quality product you desire at a reasonable price.  That includes all kinds of halogen bulbs like the 50PAR30.  We have a large inventory of halogen bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  If you need help identifying the bulb you have, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
