ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR Publishes Article About Electrodeless Lighting

Electrodeless lamps do not require wiring connections between the lamp and its ballast or driver. As most wear and tear on lamps occurs at the electrode, its absence in this technology can significantly extend lamp life.

This article I wrote for ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR breaks down the different types, from induction lamps to plasma lamps.

Not the article contains an error, which is that while Dura-One is listed in the Sylvania online catalog as a category, it was officially de-listed by the company some time ago. Additionally, as an update, Sylvania has added 40W, 70W and 200W models to its Icetron system, and in July is expected to release a 100W dimmable model.

    As lighting continues to grow in energy efficiency, electrodeless lighting demonstrates that LED is not the only game in town; it offers competitive choices for outdoor and maintenance-sensitive applications.
