Sofitos / Striplight lamps
Los sofitos son lámparas en forma de tubo de vidrio que se emplean generalmente para iluminar escaparates, vitrinas de exposición, armarios, etc.
Se construyen con un filamento de tungsteno longitudinal de simple espiral, en atmósfera de vacío, y con dos casquillos lisos en los extremos que encajan a presión en sendos portalámparas. Cuando la luz de la lámpara ha de ser direccional, se metaliza longitudinalmente la mitad de la ampolla, con lo que la parte correspondiente del flujo luminoso se refleja en la dirección adecuada.
