high-pressure sodium lamp
High-pressure sodium lamps have an efficacy of 50–140 lumens per watt – an efficiency exceeded only by low-pressure sodium lamps. Like mercury vapor lamps, high-pressure sodium lamps have a lower color rendition index than metal halide lamps but longer lifetimes (16,000–24,000 hours).
