What Are LED Corn Bulbs?

Old style of lighting vs new LED bulbs

LED corn bulbs, also known as corn lamps or corn lights, are a type of LED bulb designed to replace traditional metal halide, high-pressure sodium, and compact fluorescent lamps. They get their name from their unique design, which resembles an ear of corn. The "kernels" on this corn are actually individual LED lights, arranged on the bulb to provide 360-degree coverage of light.

Corn bulbs are commonly used in commercial outdoor settings as they provide an easy solution for retrofitting the bulbs in existing wall packs, post lights, canopy lights, or shoebox lighting fixtures without the need of buying an entirely new fixture. In certain cases, LED corn lights can be used for indoor applications such as warehouse lighting or general high bay lighting as well.

Advantages of LED Corn Bulbs

Energy Efficiency: As with other LED technology, corn bulbs are more energy-efficient than traditional light sources, often leading to significant savings on electricity costs.

Long Lifespan: LED corn bulbs typically last much longer than traditional bulbs, reducing the frequency of replacements and maintenance.

Brightness: Because they have many small LEDs packed closely together, corn bulbs can provide a high amount of light output. This makes them suitable for applications where bright light is needed, such as street lights, high bay lighting in warehouses, or large indoor areas.

Versatility: LED corn bulbs come in a variety of sizes and base types, making it possible to replace many different types of traditional bulbs. They also work in a variety of fixtures, from post tops to wall packs.

Easy Installation: In most cases, retrofitting a fixture with an LED corn bulb is as simple as screwing in the new bulb.

LED Corn Cob Light Bulb Bases

LED corn bulbs come in a variety of base types to fit different fixtures. The most common bases for these bulbs include:

E26/E27 Base: These are the standard medium-sized bases that are commonly used in North America (E26) and internationally (E27).

E39/E40 Base: Also known as mogul bases, these are larger and typically used in commercial or industrial lighting fixtures.

G24 Base: These bases are commonly used for compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), and you might see LED corn bulbs with this base type designed to replace CFLs.

GU24 Base: This is a two-pin base used in some newer fixtures, particularly those designed to meet certain energy efficiency standards.

Remember, it's always important to make sure that the base of the bulb matches the socket of your fixture. Using a bulb with the wrong base type could result in the bulb not fitting, not working correctly, or even causing damage to the fixture.

Choosing Correct Wattage

LED lights do not require the same levels of wattage common to CFL and incandescent bulbs, which can make choosing the correct LED wattage difficult. When selecting an LED light, it is best to match its rated lumen output with the output of the light it is replacing or the level of light that is desired.

Our LED corn lights offer a wide range of wattages and lumen outputs, depending on the application requirements. These range from compact 14W lamps producing 1700 lumens to large 120W lamps producing over 15,000 lumens, with many choices in between. Smaller lamps are commonly used in residential applications requiring a compact yet bright and efficient lighting solution. Larger corn lamps, especially above 10,000 lumens, are normally used in commercial and industrial applications requiring a simple yet powerful and efficient lighting solution that encompasses a large area.
