A sodium vapor lamp is a type of high-intensity discharge (HID) lamp that uses an electric arc run through sodium vapor to create light. Sodium vapor lamps come in two forms, and each form has its particular uses. First there are low pressure sodium lamps, which are very energy efficient. Low pressure sodium lights give off a distinct monochromatic yellow light with a somewhat limited color rendering, and so they are more often used in outdoor lighting applications such as for street and parking lot lighting.
High pressure sodium bulbs on the other hand provide a wider band of color tones than low pressure bulbs. High pressure bulbs are also used in many outdoor applications like street lighting and security lighting, and certain indoor applications like plant growing.
Atlanta Light Bulbs carries a vast selection of high-quality sodium vapor lighting products from trusted brand names such as Osram Sylvania, Philips, Halco, Plusrite, Eiko, General Electric, and other quality manufacturers. Our high pressure sodium bulbs offer a typical lifespan of 24,000 hours, and we provide several base types to choose from — such as Medium and Mogul. We carry a variety of bulb shapes, sizes, and types, whether clear or diffused, and our high pressure sodium lights are compatible with several ballasts such as S62 ANSI or S54 ANSI. Our high pressure bulbs also exhibit differing characteristics such as lumen output and wattage. We even stock shatterproof high pressure bulbs for those rugged applications.
Our low pressure sodium lamps also feature a variety of bulb shapes and types, which feature their share of varying wattages. Our low pressure bulbs all feature a typical color temperature of 1700, and 18,000 useful life hours.
The ANSI code on your sodium vapor lamp should match the code on your ballast, and if you need any help matching up the correct parts for your particular purposes, our experienced lighting experts would be happy to help.
