# How to connect a halogen lamp

To begin with we shall understand, what is a halogen lamp, or the like can be heard in the "halogen" of the people, and what its benefits are. Halogen is a sealed capsule of the tubular shaped quartz glass, filled with a gas mixture (iodo or bromo). Due to the quartz tube can withstand higher temperatures, which increases its light output - 1.5-2 times compared to incandescent lamps. Gas heating evaporation slows the body that increases the lamp life as compared to conventional. So, if you need a bright light and a heap, then this article is for you.

## Instruction how to connect the halogen lamp

Step 1:

Decide what you need to lamp 220 V or 12 V, if the lamp will be fixed in the basis of their easily-meltable or combustible material, then buy a lamp on 12, but in this case you still need to connect the transformer.

Step 2:

After buying the lamp, pick up for her terminal that they are securely fastened to its electrodes, and they can be easily insulated.

Step 3:

If you connect the lamp for 12 volts, you need to select the transformer. The transformer must have the input voltage is 220 volts, and the output 12-10 volts. Power is chosen based on the number of connected tubes. For example, if you need to connect 3 lamps of 50 watts the transformer must be designed for a capacity of not less than 150 watts. Too large power transformer is not worth taking, as this is directly dependent on its size and price. Choose a transformer a good company, it is a thing which is not worth saving.

Step 4:

If you choose the lamp 220 V, then connect it with the terminal directly to an AC power source through a switch. The polarity of the connection does not matter.

Step 5:

So, you should receive the following wiring diagram: For lamps 12: power source - switch (hang on a zero, not the phase) - transformers - parallel connection of lamps. For lamps 220: power source - switch (hang on a zero, not the phase) - parallel connection of lamps.
