The fight for the preservation of an old technique has since lost their advocates
Although the energy required for lighting purposes in private households has only a small proportion of the total energy requirement, one wants with the eu regulation 2015/1428 of 25. August 2015 and the advanced sales ban for the classic gluing bulb set a sign.
The technique of conventional gluing bulb is a simple and added mammal also quite old-fashioned technology. The technical compelling relationship between light and warm radiation makes it quite inefficient in terms of its luminous efficacy. However, there are still consumers today, which keep the artificial light of the gluhbirne for more enjoyable. And as far as she did not advise against appropriate bulbs, they will be cut off the next year from the replenishment to new gluing bulbs.
Until february 2016, conventional gloss pears are still legally imported, then the chinese manufacturers do not supply any more in the eu. And so it is not surprised that all production capacity in the realm of the middle with the production of several million gluing bulbs are always busy and no orders are accepted there.
After making a suitable led lamp for reasonable prices for most lighting purposes, and you can now do without the little popular mercury-containing and sometimes fiependen compact fluorescent lamps (esl), the gluhbirne for most lighting purposes appears obsolete. And this obsolescence is also soarced by the legislator and was with the regulation (eu) 2015/1428 of 25. August 2015 also saved again.
If ever wanted to go out the esl, because he held their mercury content for little environmentally friendly, which was usually given the argument that the electricity consumption was connected by classic globe lamps and halogen lamps with an increased mercury outset from the coal-fired power plants, as in germany the stream mix still to a considerable part of coal-fired power plants.
The fight is reflected in the baroque regulation title
With the current regulation, you want to stuffly stuffed soil, which could still use consumers to acquire conventional gluing bulbs. The fact that the title of the new regulation now has the scope of a short story is a small indication of how bitching the fight against the gluse bulb is guided. He is complete:
Commission regulation (eu) 2015/1428 of the commission of 25. August 2015 for the change of regulation (ec) no. 244/2009 of the commission with a view to determining requirements for the environmentally friendly design of budget lamps with unbundled light and regulation (ec) nr. 245/2009 of the commission with a view to establishing requirements for the environmentally friendly design of fluorescent lamps without built-in ballasts, high-prere discharge lamps, and ballasts and luminaires for their operation and repealing directive 2000/55 / ec of the european parliament and the council and the regulation (regulation ( eu) nr. 1194/2012 of the commission with regard to the requirements for the environmentally friendly design of laminated light lamps, led lamps and adjuved.
If you could still get involved in many architectural markets with so-called special globe lamps, which also withstand stronger mechanical preres, this product group is now also taken from the market. Special gluilight lamps, which are more common glow lamps with a long of more than 60 mm, are no longer special products if they are withstand only mechanical preres or vibrations and it is not common glow lamps for traffic signal systems or if they are a nominal power of more have 25 w.
The balancing now occurred so many a friend of old technique like a stucco from a faith war and awakens memories of the ban on a traditional textile fiber. At that time, this was done quite simultaneously with the introduction of the synthetic fibers, which appears in the backblick so many no more than coincidence.
A small bright spot the new prescription, however, ready for the friends of analog photography. Lamps for projection purposes (and that thus applies to both slide projectors and so-called enlargement gates) are excluded from the glue lamp ban.
Whether the war has come about the adequate lighting in the private household with the youngest regulation to its end, may be doubted. The lovers of old lighting technology are currently involved in thinking new delivery routes for the forbidden gloss bulbs – and for some is alone the desire to avoid a ban, incentive enough to get involved.
Leds also have benefits
Whether the current technical development is preserved as a permanent step to more energy efficiency, is not certain yet. Who is pleased that with the led technology, a protrude to the compact luminous bulbs is much more pleasant lighting technology, should also take into account that more and more lights come to the market, in which the led bulb is no longer changeable. In the case of a defect of the leds, the entire luminaire must be disposed of.
Another disadvantage of the leds is that it is not possible so far to keep the light temperature constant about multiple production batches. As a result, it is important that all led lamps are always exchanged for multilayer lights simultaneously if you want to avoid a different color of the light.
Also, the question of whether the use of leds in household lighting under the stroke really results in energy saving is not yet a lovely answered. The energy-saving of leds and the falling prices for led effect lights and light slippers of all kinds quotes that the light switch in numerous households has a meanwhile significantly reduced meaning: the lights hinted with leds then burn around the clock, even if no one home is. Some of one wants to scare with the permanent light also possible burglar because he believes that presence simulate.
