Led's do not like heat. Heat kills many in bus rear taillights in the
Leds like it cooler than 25 deg C.
It would have to be through a window, just like fans do not last long
in the heat, as in Turbo Oven.
All fans are on the outside.
LED's inherently also keep getting dimmer as they warm up over a
If you pulse it with high current, the light output sags.
To get 50 K hours life, they must be operated conservatively. Not many
engineers do that
when your trying to get a lot of light.
Why do you really need a light in the oven? Shine a flashlight in
it..... (just a thought).
That type of incandecent bulb will probably still be sold. There are
quite a few exceptions such as the small flame shaped bulbs and
specialty types (which this likely is). Someone posted a list on here
(via weblink) awhile ago, which shows all the exceptions. I dont
recall the site....
Even if a CFL or LED light could survive in that heat (which it cant),
the solder would melt.
If this is an industrial oven....like a pizza oven then a small metal halide
lamp can be used...I have seen this in a local rotery pizza oven
MH lamps dont mind the heat and can last a L O N G time
wattages are available down to 39 watts (who comes up with these offbeat
numbers) and the 50 watt type fits a medium screw based socket .
If this is a home oven check on flea-bay and stock up a dozen bulbs this
should last like 10-15 years with casual use.
