What’s the lamp bulb holder?

Bulb base led halogen lamp holders guide

A lamp bulb holder, also known as a lamp socket or lamp holder, is a device that physically supports a light bulb and provides an electrical connection to it. It allows you to safely install a bulb into a lamp or light fixture, ensuring the bulb remains in place and receives the correct electrical current to function.

There are many types of lamp bulb holders, each designed to accommodate a specific type of bulb. The lamp holder you use will depend on the type of bulb (or lamp) you’re using and the application of the lighting fixture.

Some of the common types include:

  1. Edison (E-series) Sockets: These are screw-in sockets named after the type of bulb they hold – the Edison bulb. Examples include E26 and E27, which are standard sizes for residential light bulbs.
  2. Bi-Pin Sockets: These have two pins that insert into the bottom of the bulb. They’re often used for halogen, fluorescent, and some types of LED bulbs.
  3. Bayonet Base Sockets: This type of socket has two pins on the side of the bulb that lock into place when inserted and twisted. They are commonly used in British and other countries’ appliances.
  4. Candelabra (E12) Sockets: This is a smaller version of the Edison socket designed to hold candelabra bulbs, often used for decorative lighting.
  5. GU10 and GU24 Sockets: These have two pins that insert and twist into place, similar to the bayonet base. They’re used for some types of halogen and LED bulbs.
  6. Mogul (E39/E40) Sockets: These are designed for larger, high-intensity bulbs often used in commercial or industrial settings.

The bulb and lamp holder must be compatible for proper operation and to ensure safety.

There are a lot of lamp bulb holder types. The bayonet and screw the lamp bulb holder belong to the building the field of electrical equipment from the cavity cylindrical insulating housing with insulating spacers threaded on the packages in the separator side of the housing within the U-shaped metal tube.

Fitted on the spacer long metal contact plate installed in one side of the bottom of the threaded tube of the metal short-contact piece, the installation of two metal post on the other side of the spacer as the main component.

A lamp bulb holder, also known as a lamp socket, is a device that holds the light bulb in place and connects it to an electrical circuit. It provides a secure connection for the bulb and allows for easy replacement when needed.

Different types of lamp bulb holders are designed to accommodate different types of light bulbs, such as screw-in bulbs or push-in bulbs, and may also vary in size, shape, and material depending on the intended use and application.

At both ends of the lamp bulb holder threaded pipe diameter from the tube the rim wall down to open two symmetrical L-shaped bulb hanging slot open U-shaped notch on the bottom of the threaded pipe.

The gaps at the outcrop partition, partition coat has long contact piece, long, short contact piece is connected with the metal terminal on the other side of the spacer, respectively, and two terminals respectively connected with one pole of the power supply.

The generic lamp bulb holder can be convenient comfortable tipping bayonet, screw incandescent bulbs or fluorescent energy-saving lamp.

Technically, A series of lights made of aluminium and blown glass developed around the formal and functional definition of the E27 lamp holder, the real technical and conceptual barycentre of the project.

Its volume highlights and includes various functions: it is at one and the same time the support for the light bulb, the support for the diffuser, connection – through the stem – to the supporting lamp base and it houses the button to switch on or regulate the intensity of the light.

The cylindrical form solves the assembly and disassembly of these components in an elementary way by means of a series of threaded ferrules.
