Clarification of "pin size"
Wanted to suggest replacing "The suffix after the G indicates the pin size. " with "The NUMERIC suffix after the G indicates the pin SPACING (CENTER TO CENTER)." if this is the correct interpretation.
Remove GU10 since it's a bayonet mount?
Per Mion's recent edit removing GU24 because it belongs on the bayonet mount page (see drawing at Lighting Research Center), I believe the GU10 should also be moved (see GU10 diagram on Don's bulbs). The GU10 is currently listed on the bayonet mount page as well.
- Good question, on this link , it is presented as "GU10 "(bipin twist-lock)", but i think the fact that you have to twist it to secure it makes it a bayonet mount. Mion (talk) 23:37, 6 July 2008 (UTC)
Indian name meaning
Going through the page's history, I noticed that Bipin is also a name. Two different anon contributions to that effect were removed without giving a reason. Why? Paradoctor (talk) 02:00, 28 September 2009 (UTC)
Below the content of that stub before I made a redirect out of it:
G9 bipin halogen light bulbs are used in downlights and spotlights and have a similar physical profile to the more common 12 Volt halogen bulbs, but operate at mains voltage. This means they do not require a transformer to step the voltage down, and consequently can be dimmed using standard dimmers.
- I think we want illustrations of typical sockets, at least for GU.
- Pictures are good, but some technical drawings would probably be preferable.
reference is broken
Predecessor of multi-pin sockets?
Would it be fair to say that this was a predecessor to the connectors used between vacuum tubes and tube sockets, and eventually integrated circuits, such as DIP packages and sockets? (What sort of citation would be required for that?) KazKylheku (talk) 21:48, 11 August 2014 (UTC)
