However, when used in professional environments, e.g. in industry, R7s LED bulbs have one limitation compared to R7s halogen bulbs: due to the thin and short, rodlike construction, there isn’t enough surface area available to place the number of LEDs it would need to generate a similarly high luminous flux as halogen bulbs.
R7s LED bulbs cannot, therefore, achieve the same high-maximum brightness as R7s halogen bulbs.
By way of comparison, an industrial light fitted with an R7s halogen bulb could, for example, produce 30,000 lumens with a wattage of 1,500 W. A similar brightness wouldn’t be possible with R7s LED bulbs.
But there’s a bright side.
With R7s LED bulbs, for example, 2,500 lumens are achieved with a power consumption of around 15-20 watts, which is more than enough power for lighting your home.
