Abstract
Currently in the automotive industry, manufacturing industry and households still used as a light source halogen lamp. Compared with ordinary light bulb has halogen bulb a higher efficiency. Unlike other types light sources with higher efficiency as fluorescent-tube or LED, the halogen lamp has excellent properties of color rendition. The article discusses the problems of time measurement inrush current halogen lamps using LabVIEW. There are mentioned the reasons for the shorter life of the halogen bulbs and its possible extension. Part of this work is measurement and comparison the inrush current halogen bulbs in the circuit diagram with and without limiting inrush current.
Keywords: Halogen Bulb, Bulb Measurements, Inrush Current, Limiting Inrush Current, LabView Measurements.
