AR70 halogen flood light bulbs have uses in special lighting applications.
These types of shielded capsule floods are being used in a wide variety of lighting applications including display, recessed and places where a sharp cutoff of the beam is desired. AR70 halogen flood light bulbs are an outstanding low voltage halogen light source that produce light in a controlled beam which is better for many high-end architectural uses. These contain a low-pressure halogen light source made with UV-stop quartz to prevent things like fading. The combination of an axial filament capsule, a computer designed reflector and a cap to eliminate capsule glare creates a lamp with exceptional performance. Sylvania is one of the major manufacturers of this lamp and is most often cited in specifications for new facilities or new fixtures.
The AR70 halogen flood light bulbs are an ideal light source because you can get a lot of light from a very small package. The wattages that are available are 20 and 50 watts. The choices of beam angle are a narrow flood 25 degree and a 9 degree spot. In either case, you will find you can get the light where you want it and shield the capsule making this one of the most visually comfortable lights on the market. These operate on a 12 volt low voltage circuit which gives you maximum flexibility in design. Of course, there are those of you who are simply looking for a replacement bulb for the one you have now. Please note that the smaller bulb in the picture is an AR70.
Here's something to keep in mind, people often take into account only lumen output values for aluminum reflector or AR-type lamps. Usually, this is a meaningless specification; candlepower is the appropriate value for a reflector lamp since they are used for accent and display lighting. So when looking at these lamps for a replacement or future project, think about beam control when using AR70 halogen flood light bulbs. As always, call us if you have any questions about these lamps. We stock them in sufficient quantities to meet almost any need that you may have.
