HID Lamp

An HID Lamp (High Intensity Discharge) is an electrical lamp which produces light by means of an electic arc between tungsten electrodes. These electrodes are housed inside a translucent or transparent arc tube. The arc tube is filled with gas and metal salts, with the gas facilitating the arc’s initial strike. Upon ignition, the arc heats and evaporates the metal salts, forming a plasma which greatly increases the intensity of the light produced by the arc, and reducing the lamp’s power consumption.

HID lamps produce higher luminous efficacy than fluorescent and incandescent lamps. They produce a much greater amount of light per watt of electricity.
