Default Re: Lamps for lamp limiters

I hadn't come across traffic light bulbs before, but I guess that what makes them particularly suitable for traffic lights is the compact filament arrangement. That would allow a highly directional beam to be produced when the filament cluster is accurately aligned at the focus of a parabolic reflector.
