Seven major lamps basic parameter inventory

- Mar 19, 2019-

Editor's note: When consumers buy LED lighting, it is necessary to understand some common parameters of LED lighting products, such as brightness, wavelength, color temperature, etc., as a standard for distinguishing between good and bad. The following small series will explain the common parameters of LED lighting products for consumers, telling you how to choose LED lighting products.


1, brightness


LED light brightness includes:


Luminance L: Luminous flux of the illuminant in a unit area of a solid angle unit in a specific direction. Unit: Nitta (cd/m2).


Luminous flux φ: the sum of the amount of light emitted by the illuminator per second. Unit: Lumen (Lm), which indicates how much the illuminant emits light, and the more the illuminance, the larger the lumen number.


Then: the larger the lumen number, the more the luminous flux, the higher the brightness of the lamp.


2, wavelength


LEDs with the same wavelength have the same color. It is difficult for manufacturers without LED spectrophotometers to produce pure color products.


3, color temperature


Color temperature is a unit of measure that identifies the color of a light and is expressed as a K value. The yellow light is "below 3300k", the white light is "5300k or more", and the intermediate color is "3300k-5300k". Customers can choose the right color temperature source according to their personal preferences, application environment and lighting effects and atmosphere.


4, leakage current


The LED is a unidirectional conductive illuminator. If there is a reverse current, it is called leakage, and the LED with a large leakage current has a short life.


5, antistatic ability


LEDs with strong antistatic properties have a long life and are therefore expensive. Generally, LEDs with an antistatic greater than 700V can be used for LED lighting (lighting decoration renderings).


6, life


The key to different qualities is life, and life is determined by light decay. Low light decay and long life.


7, design


Each product will have different designs. Different designs are suitable for different purposes. The reliability design of LED lighting includes: electrical safety, fire safety, environmental safety, mechanical safety, health and safety, and safe use time.
