The highest wattage now available in this very small lighting package with a directed beam
of light is what
makes this lamp great for many applications. Sylvania engineers put a 75
watt halogen capsule light in a small reflector to
give better beam control than what was possible before. The
Sylvania brand is different than others where it has an enclosure of ceramic
around the lamp itself for excellent heat dissipation. Sylvania 75PAR16 halogen bulbs
always have a ceramic covering over the
neck of the bulb, just above the Edison (medium) base. This is the
distinctive feature and identifies it as Sylvania. But if your PAR16
doesn't have this, don't worry, the bulb will function mostly the same as one
that does have this covering. Other manufacturers have a glass outer shell, but we do
believe that the Sylvania product is superior for its heat dissipation.
Halogen bulbs are similar to incandescent bulbs, however, they are filled
with a special gas that actually rebuilds the filament and provides longer
average life than standard incandescent bulbs. The 75PAR16 halogen light bulbs are
flood shaped with the heavy, thick glass as a protective cover. The word PAR stands for parabolic aluminized reflector.
The 75PAR16 halogen bulb is a
small flood bulb and are not as large as many 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. 75PAR16 lamps are 2 inches across and they are 75 watts.
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.
Sylvania generally calls their halogen line Capsylite and within that category are many
different configurations of light bulbs. The variations range from halogen MB19 light
bulbs to bipin halogen to the full spectrum variety called Daylight Plus. There are also track
lighting bulbs such as the PAR30 floods and indoor/outdoor PAR38 floods that you
may be familiar with. Whatever the
lighting task, there is probably a Sylvania Capsylite bulb that will work correctly in
that lighting situation. eLightBulbs.com is an online light bulb company that
