MR16 halogen light bulbs are used widely in many different types of low voltage lighting applications that require an intense light. You'll find them used most often in retail lighting where a whiter, crisp light is desired to bring out certain highlights. They have a 2 inch diameter at the opening of the reflector and a dichroic coating. It's design to be used in track light fixtures that are smaller, making them less noticeable in the space. They are available in either a covered or open lamp version, and it depends on your preference whether you need that covering for protection. You'll find it ideal for any kind of display or for use in a home lighting situation. The rendering of light and shadow produces a dramatic effect. The pin spacing is 5.3mm on-center and the lamp simply pushes in to be placed in the socket. It's important for maintenance purposes not to touch the bulb on the inside of the reflector, that will cause early failure as skin oils can react with the bulb when heat is applied. You see on the back of the lamp there is a three letter code and that corresponds to watts and beam spread. It's an industry standard that's helpful to identify which lamp you need because they all look basically the same. This makes it easy to get the correct replacement or to change to another wattage rating or beam too.
