MR16 IRC EcoPlus Lamps - 14, 20 & 35 watts.
Lamps with IRC coating technology generate more light from less electrical energy. The heat in IRC lamps is directed back at the filament by the infra-red bulb coating. Simply put The heat reflecting coating on the inner lamp burner reflects waste heat back to the filament so less energy is needed to operate the lamp. This gives an energy saving of 40% compared with a standard dichroic lamp.
Because of the energy saving made the wattages are different from those in standard halogen lamps. The difference varies with beam angles but for comparison the following provides a useful guide:
14w IRC Ecoplus = 20w standard dichroic
20w IRC Ecoplus = 35w standard dichroic
35w IRC Ecoplus = 50w standard dichroic
10º - a very narrow spot
24º - a narrow spot
36º - a medium beam angle
60º - a very wide flood.
