Ceramic light sockets are electrical fixtures designed to hold and connect light bulbs, made primarily from ceramic materials. Ceramic, due to its excellent heat resistance and insulating properties, makes it ideal for situations where high temperatures might degrade other materials, such as with halogen or certain high-intensity bulbs.
Among these are the Screw Base sockets, commonly used in households, which come in sizes like the standard E26/E27 or the smaller candelabra variant E12. Pin Base sockets accommodate bulbs with one or more protruding pins, like the GU10 and GU5.3.
Then there’s the Bayonet Base, distinguished by its twist-lock mechanism, often found in places like the UK. It’s essential always to match the socket type with the correct bulb to ensure safety and functionality.
