How can the diode save the electric power?
There is such "antiquated" way which will help you to save the electric power made by glow lamps.
In the chain of the bulb the diode is put in any way.
It is possible to use D-226, but they by the size big and it is inconvenient to hide them. It is better to choose import, 1-2 A. They are small, well transfer "heat". It is necessary to put them inside in the way which is represented on the scheme given above. Socles are accustomed to drinking. It is possible to put diodes and in switches.
This way of economy has pluses and minuses.
The most important shortcoming is that frequency falls twice, and the small pritukhaniye is observed.
Other shortcoming - at the expense of resistance of the diode falls also brightness.
It is better to put such bulbs in bathrooms, in places, inconvenient for service, in lamps before the entrance door and in lamps on the roof.
As for pluses, such bulbs work many times longer (with the diode of the bulb also years six can hold on), and it is already economy for the electric power from 25% and above.
At burn-out of the bulb the diode can be reused.Top
