The PLC lamps are able to provide the same amount of light as the twin tube CFL lamps of an equivalent wattage, the sole difference is that they are half as big as the twin-tube CFLs. For this reason, the PLC compact fluorescent bulbs fit perfectly in small lamps and other similar applications. Also, it must be mentioned that there are two main types of lamps: the 4 pin PLC light bulbs and the 2 pin PLC light bulbs. The finish of the lamp should be taken into consideration mainly for aesthetic purposes: the lamps can have a cool white finish, a warm white finish or a special daylight finish.
PLC lamps are very popular lighting sources and they are designed for indoor illumination purposes only, this is why they are commonly used as desk lamps, emergency luminaries, fixture lamps and other similar applications. They are efficient, reliable, durable in the long run and very energy-efficient.
On the other hand, these lamps are also perfect for round, square or rectangular downlights as well as wall lights in hotels or office buildings.
