Power saving by means of the normal diode in bulbs

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.

Схема включения полупроводникового диода в цепь переменного тока

Scheme of inclusion of the point-contact diode in the alternating current circuit.

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.

Схема крепления дополнительного цоколя с диодом к основному цоколю лампы

The scheme of fastening of the additional socle with the diode to the main socle of the lamp.

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.

    What face value should be taken on 500 watts and on 1000 galogenovy?

      At me on two daisies, one 5kh150vt, the second 6kh150vt — glow lamps, stand on 10A import, without radiator in the guard of lighting, several years. ON one or coupled, definitely I do not remember. If really interests, I can open the guard and look.

    I use this method in some rooms of economic assignment for a long time. Only the diode inserted directly on one of wires to the boss. Forgot when changed the bulb there.

      Where to put not so important, the main thing this gadget normally lives and will live!
