If you are looking for more light from an existing installation this may be the answer for you. 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:
10º - 15,000cd = 83 watt standard dichroic lamp
24º - 5,300cd = 86w watt standard dichroic lamp
36º - 2,850cd = 98 watt standard dichroic lamp
60º - 1,450cd = 90 watt standard dichroic lamp
