Specification Explanations

SPECIFICATIONDEFINITION
TYPEDefines what kind of light it is, i.e. halogen, LED, fluorescent, etc.
WATTAGEDefines the energy consumption of the fixture
CRIImportant character in areas where color should be truly represented. For applications involving people, a CRI lower than 70 is not recommended. In shopping areas a CRI of 90 and higher is applicable.
LUMENSResponsible for the brightness in a room-the more lumens, the brighter the fixture is illuminating the space
LUMEN PER WATTDetermines the efficiency of the lighting system-the higher the lm/W the better the ecological footprint of the product
LUMEN MAINTENANCEHow fast LEDs lose their brightness compared to new products (most manufacturers refer to the time when most of the LEDs reach 70% and less of their initial lumen output)
COLOR TEMPERATURE Defines the mood or ambience in a room. Low-quality lighting fixtures have a very cool temperature as these LEDs are more efficient than warm white LED products. A color temperature higher than 6000K is not recommended for many areas.
BEAM ANGLEThe light is radiated into the indicated beam angle-LEDs are direct light sources with typical beam angles of 120° to 180°
LIFE HOURSDefines the lifetime of a LED product. LEDs last from 50,000h up to 100,000h
WORKING VOLTAGEHigh quality LED products have an integrated driver, retrofit solutions are delivered with the suitable ballast already
FREQUENCYDetail about the admitted voltage frequency
POWER FACTOREfficiency of the ballast
TOTAL HARMONIC DISTORTIONDescribes the distortion caused by ballasts and other inductive loads of the input current on alternating current power systems
OPERATING TEMPERATUREThe light source is operating under the mentioned conditions according to the manufacturer datasheet-other temperatures will cause the light source to fail or not work properly
IP RATINGThe protection of the light source, ballast and wiring against liquids and solid objects
DIMMABLEDimming is the change in light source brightness, mostly undertaken by smart controls
DIMENSIONSThe fixture’s size, important for the definition of the mounting position and space
NET WEIGHTThe fixture’s weight, important for the mounting construction
HOUSINGThe housing surrounds the light source and ballast-the higher the IP rating, the better protection against liquids and solid objects
MOUNTINGPossible mounting ways-mobile, table, ceiling, wall
WARRANTYHow long after purchasing the products are ensured to function properly
