In fact, the specific name of LED Par, like PAR38, is connected with the diameter(either in inches or in millimeters). Generally, the diameter in inches is the value coming from a nominal diameter divided by 8. For example, the diameter for PAR16 is 2 inches, the value of which comes from dividing 16 by 8. Also, the diameter in millimeters can be calculated by multiplying the diameter in inches by 25.4. For example, the diameter of Par56 is about 175mm, which comes from the calculation 56/8x25.4. Here is a diameter table for your reference.
