LED alternatives for phased out halogen lamps

WHICH HALOGEN LAMPS WILL BE “BANNED” FROM SEPTEMBER 1, 2018?

Halogen Ban

Two types of inefficient non-directional halogen lamps are no longer permitted to be put into circulation in the European Union from 1 September 2018:

  • With classic glass bulbs and screw bases which are operated without a transformer
  • With plug-in bases

Retailers may still sell their existing stocks. Excluded from the EC Regulation are products for special purposes, such as oven lamps, because these cannot be adequately substituted Also Haloline lamps with R7s base and Halopin lamps with G9 bases are also not affected.

Which halogen lamps are phased out - which are not?

Overview: LED alternatives for phased-out halogen lamps

Modern full glass LED lamps look deceptively similar to original inefficient halogen lamps and are therefore ideal direct replacements. Replacing the lamps is also highly simple: take out the conventional lamp and fit the economic LED lamp – done!

Dimming LED lamps

Ledvance Icon dimmable

Whether a LED lamp is fundamentally dimmable or non-dimmable must be specified on the packaging. But dimmable versions may also cause problems, mostly in combination with already installed brightness controllers for traditional lamps. This is on the one hand due to the electronics, and on the other due to the low wattages of the LED lamps that place special demands on a dimmer.

Before replacing a halogen lamp by an LED lamp in a dimmable luminaire, the following information should therefore be noted:

  • Use only dimmable LED lamps.
  • The dimmer used must be suitable for the specific LED lamp.
  • Only use lamps of the same type within a dimmer circuit if not otherwise specified by the manufacturer of the dimmer.
