The 500 Watt T3 Halogen Double-Ended Light Bulb (2-Pack) are long-lasting bulbs that can shine up to 2000 hours. These double-ended bulbs cast a bright white glow, making them perfect for security lighting, indoor floor lamps and portable work lights. Using 500 Watt halogen, these bulbs can provide up to 9,500 Lumens.
500 Watt LED vs Halogen vs Metal Halide Lumens
For instance, our LED lights having 500 watt power has luminous efficacy of 130 lm/W, which means the lumen output of LED is 500 x 130 = 65000 lumens. On the contrary, the energy efficiency of halogen is just around 10 to 20 lm/W, and thus the lumen of 500W halogen = 500 x 10 = 5000 lumens. We can see there is a huge difference between the lumens of LED and halogen. After replacing the halogen lights with LED, we can save approx. 10 to 14 times running (electricity) cost.
The lumen of 500W metal halide lights = 500 x 60 = 30000 lumens, which is also lower than LED of 65000 lumens. And hence, LED is the brightest floodlight when comparing to metal and halogen under the same power consumption.
It is going to depend upon both lamp life and technology.
Generally the shorter the life, the higher the lumens per watt, and some high power Icans (the GE’s with HIR) use a special IR reflective coating on the inside to further increase Lumens/watt (by reflecting IR energy back onto the filament instead of radiating it), but your typical 100 watt lamp runs anywhere from about 9 lumens per watt for a long life lamp to perhaps 15 for some halogen lamps with relatively short lives (a few hundred hours or less).
A 500 watt halogen should be good for about 20 lumens per watt, some may be good for a little more, depending upon life expectancy.
LED halogen replacement is applied to workshop, garage, foundry plant, aircraft hangar, warehouse, food processing factory, mining sites, high-mast parking lot pole, sports field – just loosen your existing bulbs and thus directly screwing the new LED back.
Replacing outdoor halogen work lights & flood lamps with LED has many advantage such as better water-proof structure and using time (durability). In this page, we will have a brief look at how to do the DIY.
Buyer’s Guide on LED Halogen Replacement
- How to do 500W Halogen LED Replacement?
Halogen bulbs’ lumens per watt falls within the range of 14 to 20 lm/W. And hence, a 500W halogen bulb produces 500 * 14 = 7000 lumens. If we convert this watt to LED, we will get 7000 ÷ 140 = 50W. Since the lumens per watt of LED is 10 times more, we can replace 500 watt halogen bulb with LED lights having 50 watt or 100 watt directly.
- It comes to the first benefits you can enjoy dramatical reduction on wattage use. It should be noticed that different bulbs has their own lumen per watt value; in order to figure out a more accurately on 500 watt equivalent for LED halogen replacement, it is suggested to contact our engineer for free, preliminary ideas before doing it yourself at home.
- What are the Applications & Advantages of Halogen Bulbs Retrofit?
We can divide the application into two categories – outdoor and indoor. We receive many garage and house out wall LED halogen bulb replacement enquiry. Majority of our clients think of retrofitting them because of their short life span – they need to buy the new ones every few months. Nonetheless, the life time use is capable after doing the LED replacement bulbs for halogen work lights, with 80k hours operation time. If you convert it, you will find that the LED lasts for 30 years based on 6 to 7 hours use per day.
500 watt halogen led replacement is also used in the indoor sports grounds such as volleyball, basketball, tennis court and soccer field. If video recording is needed, retrofitting to LED provides you with non-flickering illumination and high CRI. The new generation of lights is compatible to high speed photography, which assists the capture of stunning moment inside the sports fields.
- Can LED Light Replace Halogen Flood Lights and Bulbs? Are There Any Drawbacks?
Many people will concern about if LED lights can completely take the place. In fact, LED nowadays is so versatile and having all types. You will find a wide range or color temperature and power for the direct LED-halogen replacement bulb. Other parameters include beam angle and size. You can always find the better alternatives.
You may observe one of the downside is the price of LED flood light – it is a little bit more expensive than halogen lamps. However, you can save money on maintenance cost of the lighting fixtures as the installation and labor cost is not low indeed.
