Lamp Anatomy

HID (High intensity Discharge) lamps are a type of electrical gas-discharge lamp which produces light by means of an electric arc between tungsten electrodes. These electrodes are housed inside a transparent fused quartz or translucent fused alumina arc tube. These lamps produce a high amount of photons per amount of energy input (watt) and are the primary type of artificial light source used to support plant growth.
