LED Lamps socket G53
In the G53 plug-in socket, the two contacts are spaced 53 mm apart. The very wide dimensions already show that these are spotlights with a lot of light for illuminating large rooms. A lot of light also means high power consumption, which is why the use of LEDs to replace G53 halogen spotlights makes particular sense. Particularly in the commercial sector, G53 LED spots with the AR111 reflector also score with a much longer service life and correspondingly reduced replacement costs. LED lamps with socket G53 are used for shop lighting, lighting of restaurants, hotels, museums, galleries as well as for lighting private spaces. G53 halogen lamps are ideally suited for brilliant accent lighting and for improved illumination and highlighting of specific objects in bright surroundings. Existing transformers from the low-voltage system can still be used.
Composition of the G53 halogen lamp
LED lamp sockets G53 have, as the name suggests, a G-socket, i.e. a plug-in socket with two contact parts protruding from the socket. The distance between these two contacts of the G53 halogen lamp is 53 mm as suggested by the name "G53". What distinguishes G53 halogen lamps, apart from their socket size, is that they are always reflectors. Like all other halogen lamps and incandescent lamps, the G53 halogen lamp is dimmable, which is why it is so popular.
The most common combination is the G53 socket with an AR111 reflector. This name, which is erroneously used to indicate the socket type as well, stands for aluminium reflector with a diameter of 111 mm. The standardised dimensions of both the socket and the reflector ensure that halogen lamps can be replaced by LEDs without any electrical and fitting dimension related problems. Read both specifications when buying so as to ensure that you buy the right illuminant.
Simply replace the old lamps with new LED socket G53 lamps and see the advantages. Of course, we also have energy-saving lamps for this socket technology. But these are becoming increasingly unattractive because of the associated mercury exposure.
