According to the Color Rendering Index (CRI), color accuracy is measured from 0 to 100. The maximum 100 value indicates that colors under this light source will look the same as if they were displayed under natural sunlight. For example, lights with a low CRI will reveal fewer colors of the spectrum, compared to high-CRI lights. The ability of certain light source to show more colors means that its accuracy in revealing the genuine colors of objects, people, and surroundings is much higher.
In order to choose a LED light that suits your idea for brightness, check its lumen output number instead of looking for watts usage. Lumen is a unit of measure that is used to determine the amount of light emitted by a bulb. If you need brighter bulb then search for those that have a higher number of lumens. Do you want to improve the energy efficiency of your premises? Invest in a LED bulb that has the highest lumen number but the lowest watt usage.
3.Color of White Light:
To determine the hue of a specific type of light source, check the color temperature of white light. It is measured by the Kelvin temperature scale, according to which one unit Kelvin is equal to one degree Celsius. When the color temperature number is high, the hue of light is cooler. Colors of a light source can range from cool to neutral or warm.
4.Voltage of Tape Light:
Voltage of a tape light is a measurement that gives you information about how long an LED light strip will run. It is important to stress on the fact that when the voltage of tape light is a higher number (for example, 24V vs. 12V) this means longer run of light. At the same time, such choice means more power transmitted for the same amperage.
The correct power consumption of a tape light, needed for your LED lighting project can be calculated easily. The first step is to check the manufacturer's data sheet and find the specification for the tape light. Then take the wattage per foot number, recorded there and multiple it by the tape light footage. As a result, you will receive the exact amount of energy, consumed by the tape light.
6.Density of LED:
It is important to know that LED strips have an appreciable amount of LEDs per foot (or meter, yard, etc.). This means that when LEDs are spaced far from each other, the strip lights produce a spot-like light instead of a clean line of light. Of course, this feature can be customized according to client’s preferences.
a.Dry Location, IP20. Bare Circuit Board.
b.Splash Resistant, IP65. Silicone bead on strip
c.Wet Location +, IP68. Silicone tube, sealed with silicone.
When evaluating LED light strips, you should consider several factors of critical importance. One of them is which waterproof rating is relevant for your premises. In order to make an informed decision, you should choose between the three major waterproof ratings:
Dry Location, IP20. Bare Circuit Board.
Splash Resistant, IP65. Silicone bead on strip
Wet Location +, IP68. Silicone tube, sealed with silicone.
8.2-Color Tape Light:
The 2-Color Tape Light is also popular as CCT or “All White” light and it refers to the color temperature of light, measured in degrees Kelvin. The color will change from yellow to yellowish white and then to white and the coolest white when increasing the degrees Kelvin. The warmth of white light is achieved by putting cool white and warm chip next to each other on a LED strip.
9.RGB Tape Light:
A significant benefit of having RGB tape lighting is that it can produce a remarkable array of colors with practically infinite number of variations and effects. This is achieved thanks to LED chips with Red, Blue, and Green elements. Additionally to the this rich choice of colors, there is also a diversity of white variations. This way you will be able to implement original ideas with the lighting of your premises and create any type of atmosphere.
10. RGB+W Tape Light:
The latest LED technology is able to provide 16 million shades of color hues additionally to cool white, natural white or warm white LED illumination. This is achieved by combining color changing RGB strips with warm white light. Use RGB+W tape strips when you need to be creative and play with lighting options and color effects. For achieving a unique atmosphere at your premises, choose this type of lighting.
