Bulb-type Fluorescent Lights "Palook ball"



Bulb-type fluorescent lights "Palook ball"A new bulb-type fluorescent light, the DFT16EL, was produced in 1993 that could be screwed into an ordinary light socket. It lasted about six times as long as a conventional light bulb and consumed about one-third the power of a silica bulb of equivalent brightness, serving as an energy-saving, resource-saving light source.
An all-electronic high-performance inverter that was compact, lightweight, and low-cost was also developed. This was combined with the compact, yet highly efficient light-emitting tube to achieve a compact and lightweight body. This dramatically increased the number of its applications to appliances, for home use and industrial use.
