MR11 fibre optic halogen light bulbs with 12 or 6 volt, 5 or 10 watt, 4mm bipin. Good beam control with a very small size.

Maybe you're one of those people who have purchased a special light that is fibre optic and you've had some trouble finding the MR11 fibre optic halogen bulbs you need.  This has become one of the most popular type of lamp used in the fibre optic lighting situation because of it's diminutive profile and it's great beam control.  This lamp is a fine example of halogen light technology with very precise beam control.  Sometimes people say they look like little satellite dishes and there are some similarities to that shape.  The MR11 fibre optic bulb was developed as a 12 volt or 6 volt lamp for use in low voltage lighting systems and this type of fixture being one of them.  Like all halogen capsule bulbs, they are filled with a special gas that actually rebuilds the filament and provides longer average lifespan than normal incandescent bulbs. Halogens come in different shapes and sizes for various different uses. Some common halogen types are PAR, JC, Double Ended, MR16, and A-Line or MB.  The MR11 fibre optic lamp is the one that has a 1.4 inch reflector with a silvered (dichroic) coated which is usually faceted when it's a flood light, non-faceted when it's usually a spot.  Halogen bulbs burn about 10 percent brighter, whiter, a hotter than normal incandescent bulbs.  The bright light is something that is useful in a large number of lighting applications. Some people have these in fibre optic Christmas trees, angel ornaments or lighted wreaths.  So many types of holiday lighting have employed this lamp as part of certain fixtures.

Halogen light bulbs should not be touched with your skin in any way. If they are touched, their is a good chance there will be premature failure.  In case you ever do touch a halogen light bulb, wipe it thoroughly with a soft cloth. Bulbs that are covered, like the PAR and some of the MR11 fibre optic halogen light bulbs, are okay to touch, since you are not touching the actual bulb but a thick glass that covers the light bulb.  Most commonly, they are put into an enclosure, but be aware of touching a halogen capsule itself directly, is not a good idea.  The MR11 lamp for this type of fixture is low voltage in most cases, but those voltages can vary to include 12 volt or 6 volt with wattages varying from 5 watt to 20 watt.

If you have MR11 fibre optic halogen light bulbs in certain fixtures in your home or business, then you want to make sure of several characteristics when replacing them.  You need to make sure that the reflector opening is 1.4 inches, verify the operating voltage of the lamp and the pin spacing of the bulbs themselves.  A typical MR11 halogen has a pin spacing at 4 millimeters.  It's important to also get the wattage of the lamp which is clearly marked in most cases.  If you have these basics then the only other thing you will need is the beam spread.  If you can find these characteristics, then you can find them on our web site or you can call us to verify your information.

In summary, MR11 fibre optic light bulbs are available in a couple of wattages and voltages. Of course, you will need fixtures that will have the correct equipment for the MR11 halogen bulbs.  They will emit a whiter, brighter light that is considered by a vast majority of people more desirable than regular light bulbs.  Whatever type of halogen you have, you will be getting a quality bulb that works in the fiber optic fixture or bubbler.  We have a large inventory of halogen bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  If you need help identifying a fibre optic bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
