URG - Glare caused by light

  Jeffrey     02-08-2019     Comments (0)

URG - Glare caused by light A variety of values are important when it comes to light sources. Think of IP values, CRI values, Kelvin values and brightness in Lumen. In this article we are talking about UGR values. In short, the UGR value has to do with glare. Everyone experiences this from time to time. Have you, for example, ever had to deal with a bright sun that impeded your vision? Or has anyone ever been shining a flashlight in your face? UGR has everything to do with this. UGR stands for Unified Glare Rating. This value indicates the extent to which there is glare at a measured position. An URG value can never be directly linked to a light source. The degree of glare depends on the position and viewing angle of the user and other factors such as ambient light and reflective light.   It is important to realise the right UGR value to avoid...

  Jeffrey     18-07-2019     Comments (0)

Light output (Lumen, Power and Lux) At Ledpanelwholesale you will find product descriptions for each product with specifications for the respective product. In the specifications we find the term 'Lumen' with a related value. For a professional, this must be a familiar term. In this blog we explain what Lumen is, and how this value can best be interpreted.   What is Lumen? (Luminous intensity or luminous flux)   With Lumen we indicate the light intensity, or light output, of a light. It indicates how bright a light is by measuring how much visible light it emits in all directions. In short, the number of lumens indicates how much light a lamp can produce per unit of time.     Lumen and Power? (Luminous efficiency or Specific Luminous Flux)   The number of lumens that a light emits is always related to the power...

Which light intensity is suitable for which room?

  Annelies     18-07-2019     Comments (0)

Which light intensity is suitable for which room? Different rooms need different amounts of light. Have you heard of the terms lumen and lux? These terms indicate the amount of light and the intensity of light. There is often a lack of clarity about these terms and about which light intensities/amounts are suitable for different types of rooms. In this blog we therefore clearly explain the difference between the terms lumen and lux and give you a clear overview of the luminance levels that are suitable to be used in different rooms.    Lumen Lumen is the measure of the amount of light. It is a photometric measure. This means that a subjective element, the human eye, is taken into account. The eye is more sensitive to certain colour temperatures than to others. For this reason, different light colors can cause different impressions of the amount of light....

What is the right colour temperature for LED lighting?

  Annelies     04-07-2019     Comments (0)

What is the right colour temperature for LED lighting? LED lighting is available in different light colours. With RGB LED lighting all colours can be formed. White LED lighting can vary in colour temperature. Why is choosing the right light colour so important? Different colour temperatures are suitable for different room types. In an operating room, for example, it is not desirable for warm white light to restrict visibility. In addition to the practical aspect, different colour temperatures create a certain atmosphere and the colour temperature also influences the biological rhythm of people. LED lighting is therefore available in different light colours. The colour temperature is expressed in Kelvin (K). The lower the number of Kelvin, the warmer and more yellow the colour of the light is. The higher the number of Kelvin, the colder and more blue the colour of the light is....

How does LED work?

  Jeffrey     19-06-2019     Comments (0)

How does LED work? How does LED produce light?   LED lights are increasingly available as a replacement for other types of traditional lighting, such as; incandescent, halogen or fluorescent lighting. LEDs, or Light Emitting Diodes are a form of solid-state lighting. This means that LED lighting, semiconductors are used to produce light instead of a filament (incandescent lamps) or a gas discharge (fluorescent lamps). By running current through these semiconductors, these materials emit light. The colour of this light depends on the type of semiconductor used. The advantage of this type of lighting is that it produces little heat and is more resistant to impacts, vibrations, shocks and wear. As a result, the lifespan is considerably longer than other forms of lighting.   How does LED emit different colours?   LED light can...

Li-Fi network: Internet Through LED Lights

  Jeffrey     07-06-2019     Comments (0)

Wireless means of communication have become indispensable in our daily lives. We use it all day long without thinking about it. The use of these wireless means of communication have become at least as usual as the use of water and electricity. So we are increasingly dependent on technology that ensures that data is effectively transferred. Despite strong progress and innovation in this area, most systems have only a certain capacity. Radio waves have only a limited spectrum suitable for wireless data transmission. Data is transmitted by means of electromagnetic waves (radio waves). This method is scarce and expensive. There will come a time when this technology will no longer be able to meet the demand for data transmission. In order to meet this need, we will have to start thinking about alternatives. For some, the solution to the...

What do I do with my old LED lamps?

  Jeffrey     09-05-2019     Comments (0)

What do I do with my old LED lamps? LED lighting is becoming increasingly popular due to the fact that LED lamps are energy efficient. This means that LED lamps are also better for the environment. Despite the fact that LED lamps have a considerably longer lifespan than traditional forms of lighting, they will have to be replaced sooner or later. But where do we put our old LED lamps?   Recycling of LED lamps By correctly recycling old LED lamps, up to 90% can be reused. Unlike low-energy light bulbs, an LED lamp does not contain mercury or other toxic substances. They can therefore be recycled as small electrical appliances. In almost all cases, the LED lamps show a sign of a crossed-out waste container. They should therefore not be disposed of with household waste. Where should these types of lamps go?...
