What kind of light bulb has 2, 3, or 4 tubes, 2 or 4 pins, and what appears to be random letters and numbers smooshed together to describe it? That would be the CFL PL lamp, and these interesting bulbs have quite a variety of uses. Available from 5 Watts to 42 Watts, depending on exactly which CFL PL lamp you are looking for, these are versatile bulbs that have become a staple in non-residential spaces - think offices, retail stores, hotels, schools, and more. Developed by Philips Lighting to meet the needs of a specific market, these plug-in bulbs are a unique addition to the CFL family of lighting.
Requiring a pin-based lighting fixture, 2 and 4 Pin PL bulbs utilize a G or GX type base, with the number included in the base code indicating the number of millimeters between the pins.
