    Lamps

    Lamps turn electrical energy into light. There are many different types and styles of lamp. Some are used in small applications while others are used in residential or industrial sites. Light symbols vary with application and manufacturer. Typical residential incandescent and fluorescent lights are shown in Figure 16. The incandescent lamp is available in different watt ratings. The fluorescent lamp is available in different lengths, wattages, and types of illumination. It is easily recognizable by its long tube shape.
