Sylvania PAR30 long neck
halogen light bulbs are the longer version of the popular PAR30 bulb. It's been
used in many types of track lighting which requires a longer bulb for a deeper
recessed opening. And for those of you who have a retail store, Sylvania makes
them in the the Daylight color which is more like natural sunshine. This will
cause your colors to be brighter and display a true color like never before.
These are commonly used in retail track lighting fixtures for their light output
and great beam control over other types of flood lights. This lamp has one of the best beam patterns which don't have unsightly
shadowing of the light source. They fit almost anywhere because the long
neck will fit into hard to reach sockets.
So the question is, how do I
know I have the Sylvania PAR30 long neck halogen and not the short neck? You can
tell what kind of PAR30 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, PAR30 lamps are 3 3/4 inches
across. That makes sure you have a PAR30, now check the overall length. The
Sylvania PAR30 long neck is 4.7 inches in length as opposed to the short neck
which is 3.6. PAR30 lamps are widely available from Sylvania, GE, Philips,
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. This makes the PAR30 lamps very versatile and quite
handy to use.
Sylvania generally calls
their line Capsylite and within that category are many different configurations
of light bulbs. The variety ranges from standard light bulbs to halogen full
spectrum called Daylight Plus. There are also Capsylite A19 shape, indoor floods
and indoor/outdoor PAR floods. If you are a company or individual that cares
about the quality of the products that you have or the presentation of the
product, then the Sylvania PAR30 long neck halogen might be the right light bulb
for you. Sylvania has one of the best quality control processes and we have a
