NOTE ON CHARACTERISTICS OF LAMPS OF ENGLISH MANUFACTURE

The data in this chapter relating to the energy characteristics of incandescent tungsten-filament electric lamps, carbon arcs, and mercury-discharge lamps apply specifically to products of American manufacture. In the United States general lighting service lamps are usually operated at 115 volts. In England the lamps are mostly designed for 200-260-volt supplies. For tungsten- filament lamps of English manufacture, the relative spectral dis­tribution can be taken, according to the value of the luminous efficiency of the lamp, from the data given in this chapter; the actual magnitude of the energy values will depend on the wattage of the lamp.

For carbon arcs and mercury-discharge lamps the data given in respect of the infrared radiation will apply generally in the case of sources of similar type and dimensions, provided the electrical running conditions are the same.*
