FXL projector lamps for overhead projectors with 410 watts and 82 volts.

The proliferation of projector equipment has also precipitated the need for all kinds of lamps as well.  One of the most common for many different brands of projectors is the FXL projector lamps.  Although the needs of multimedia presentation has expanded over the past decade, there are still millions of ordinary overhead projectors in use on a daily basis.  The need for easy, simple visual communication makes it something that will be used for many decades to come.  There are a wide variety projectors which use the FXL lamp, and they don't all look at all the same.  In fact, some companies who make these projectors have switched bulbs from time to time for any number of reasons.  The main purpose for a bulb like this is the light it puts on a screen, how well it fills out the screen space.  The brightness, as most people call it, needs to be enough to gain good contrasts of writing or overhead transparencies.

All of the FXL projector lamps regardless of the brand, have the same shape, and sometimes the exact same shape of another lamp which might have a different voltage or wattage.  That's one of the reasons they're not interchangeable.  Almost always, the voltages vary and the amount of light as well.  This is done by engineers who are building an overhead to perform correctly for it's use. The FXL projector lamps are 410 watts and 82 volt.  In regards to the shape, many bulbs have the same shape as MR16 halogen bulbs, but that's where the similarity ends.   The needs of the projection equipment demands a much higher light output than a standard MR16 could ever deliver.  Another thing to remember, because these have a high light output, that usually means they have a much shorter life.  The life is shorter, so it's good to turn off the lamp when it's not being used.  Every bit of time you save means the lamp will last longer and you'll be saving money. These bulbs should not be touched with your skin as the oils can react with the glass. If they are touched, the life span of the bulb will be greatly reduced and sometimes you might see a bubbling of the glass. In case you ever do touch inward reflector of the lamps, wipe it thoroughly with a soft cloth.

Another thing to keep in mind when replacing these is that they are identified by a 3 letter code on the bulb itself.  You'll see it somewhere on the back or the top if it's more like a bulb as opposed to a reflector type lamp.  Sometimes you'll see the code as FXL as described here or ENX, DYS, EVD, ELH or something similar to that.  The ANSI 3 letter code identifies that bulb as to the shape, wattage, voltage and any other standard information.  Unlike other types of bulbs, these have some standards across various manufacturers, the only thing that varies is quality.  We have two of the best manufacturers of all types which are Sylvania and Eiko.  The FXL has typically been the choice for an extra bright light.

In summary, FXL lamps are used specifically for the overhead projector they operate in.  Of course, you will need projectors that will have the correct circuitry for the projector bulbs.  Whatever type of projection lamp you have, you can get what you need while getting the most light you can for your money.  We have a large inventory of projector bulbs for nearly every type of lighting application in the field.  If you need help identifying a projector bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
