LIGHTING BASICS

Lighting Basic

Basic of LED Lighting: An LED (Light Emitting Diode) is a special diode that uses a semiconductor chip to produce light when an electric current is passed through it. LED lights are extremely energy efficient and long lasting making them ideal replacements for traditional power hungry halogen, sodium and standard incandescent lights and can save up to 80% on household lighting costs.

With the advancement in technology in recent years, LED lights can be used in a wide range of applications in commercial, industrial and domestic lighting. LED Lights are energy efficient, cost effective, durable and have countless uses and functions.

Color Rendering Index (CRI):the most useful measure of a light source’s color characteristics is color rendering index (CRI). In general terms, CRI is a measure of a light source’s ability to show object colors “realistically” or “naturally” compared to a familiar reference source, either incandescent light or daylight.

Correlated Color Temperature (CCT):The correlated color temperature (CCT) is a specification of the color appearance of the light emitted by a lamp, relating its color to the color of light from a reference source when heated to a particular temperature, measured in degrees Kelvin (K).

Benefits of LED:

1.Long Life Span
2. Energy Efficient
3. Environmental Friendly
4. Durable
5. Zero UV Emissions
6. Instant Lighting and Frequent Switching
7. Low Voltage
8. Design Flexibility
