What are the differences in fittings?

Answer

There is a large variety of fittings available that can be applied to different types of lamps. Below you can find the most common ones:

  • Screw fittings: The best known are the small (E14) and the large (E27) fittings. In addition there is the Goliath-fitting (E40).
  • Insertable fittings: In this case the lamp has one or multiple bases that can be inserted into the fittings. The bases can usually be placed automatically in the fittings, however, sometimes they need to be screwed to put them in place. Insertable fittings can be purchased in both small and large sizes.
  • Fluorescent fittings: All straight fluorescent tubes have their own unique fitting system.
  • Bayonet fittings: The type of fitting is pushed into the lamp so the pins (attached to the fitting) can firmly be clamped to the side.
