WATTS vs LUMENS

Lumens is the “new” way of knowing the brightness of a lamp.
Lumens = Light Output. Watt = Power.
The higher the lumen rating the “brighter” the lamp.

With LED technology, more light output (Lumens) can be achieved with less power (Watts). As technology improves, more Lumens will be produced using even less Watts. As a result, using Watts as a guide to…

LED Light Colour Temperature

LED light colour temperature is measured in Kelvin, K. Light fixtures are found in colour temperatures on the Kelvin scale of between 2700K (extra warm incandescent), 3000K (warm white halogen) and 3500K (white fluorescent). Colour temperatures of 4000K (natural white) are typically used for commercial, industrial, hospital and cleanroom applications, as the light is bright and has a bluish daylight…
