A watt is a unit of power used to quantify the rate of energy transfer from an LED product. It is equivalent to one joule per second. The calculation that is used to derive a watt is the voltage multiplied by the amperage. Basically it’s a way to track how much energy a product consumes.
Lumens is the measurement of brightness that an LED product gives out as perceived by the human eye. It is important to consider the lumen output when purchasing an LED product as this will tell you just how bright the product is going to be.
Voltage is the pressure from an electrical circuit’s power source that pushes charged electrons, or the current, through a conducting loop. This then illuminates an LED light. Most LED products have a voltage of 12 or 24.
Kelvin is a unit measurement for the colour temperature of light. There is a Kelvin scale that is used to determine the temperature and shade of white that an LED light gives out. The higher the Kelvin, the colder the light, the lower the Kelvin, the warmer the light.
COB stands for ‘chip-on-board’ which is an LED technology. It combines many small chips that are integrated into one large chip and bonded directly onto a substrate. This allows for an increased heat dissipation which increase the life span of the light.
The key features are that COB products have:
Higher light levels with a more uniformed appearance
Greater levels of light dispersion
Increased stability and reliability
Improved heat management which in turn improves longevity
CCT stands for ‘correlative colour temperature’ which indicates the colour appearance of a white LED.
Is it defined in Kelvins.
Where a product is CCT switchable, this means that it can be controlled to go from the bottom to the top end of the Kelvin scale, achieving both the warmest and coolest colour temperatures and everything in between.
