Terminology Information

  • Lumens (lm)

    Lumens is the standard by which the amount of brightness / light emitted by a light source is measured.

  • lm/w

    This calculation denotes the amount of lumens emitted per watt of electricity used.

  • WATTS (W)

    The watt (abbreviated W) is the International System of Units' (SI) standard unit of power(energy per unit time), the equivalent of one joule per second. The watt is used to specify the rate at which electrical energy is dissipated, or the rate at which electromagnetic energy is radiated, absorbed, or dissipated.

  • EQ.WATTS

    This equation is used while shisting from an old lighting f ixture and replacing the same with an LED f ixture, hence the shist can be made based on the Wattage of lamp requirement.

  • Voltage / Frequency

    Voltage denotes the electric power required for the effective working of the said product and frequency denotes the Horse Power of the said product.

  • CRI

    Power Factor is the ratio of the actual electrical power dissipated by an AC circuit to the product of the r.m.s. values of current and voltage. The difference between the two is caused by reactance in the circuit and represents power that does no useful work.

  • PF

    This equation is used while shisting from an old lighting f ixture and replacing the same with an LED f ixture, hence the shist can be made based on the Wattage of lamp requirement.

  • RECESSED

    A recessed light or down light is a light f ixture that is installed into a hollow opening in a ceiling.

  • SURFACED

    The finished housing is exposed, not flush with surface.

  • EQ.WATTS

    This equation is used while shisting from an old lighting f ixture and replacing the same with an LED f ixture, hence the shist can be made based on the Wattage of lamp requirement.

  • RD

    Round

  • SQ

    Square

  • WP

    Waterproof

  • NON WP

    NON-Waterproof

  • 3528/120

    A number that signif ies the size of the chip and number of chips on the LED strip where 3.5mm x 2.8mm is the size of the chip and 120 being the number of chips in one metre length of the strip.

  • PKW

    Stands for Powder Coating White which is the housing exterior color for lighting f ixtures.

  • IP RATING

    IP Ratings (Ingress Protection) A two-digit number established by the International Electro Technical Commission, is used to provide an Ingress Protection rating to a piece of electronic equipment or to an enclosure for electronic equipment.


    Here are some of the easy to follow references to help you decide which IP Rating you need or have.


    IP20: Not protected from liquids.

    IP44: Protected from water spray from any direction.

    IP45: Protected from low pressure water jets from any direction.

    IP65:Protected from low pressure water jets from any direction and dust ingress.

    IP66:Protected from high pressure water jets from any direction.

    IP66:Protected from high pressure water jets from any direction.

    IP67:Protected from immersion between 15 centimeters and 1 meter in depth.

    IP68:Protected from long term immersion up to a specif ied pressure.

  • 5050/30

    A number that signif ies the size of the chip and number of chips on the LED strip where 5.0mm x 5.0mm being the size of the chip and 30 being the number of chips in one metre length of the strip.

  • 5050/60

    A number that signif ies the size of the chip and number of chips on the LED strip where 5.0mm x 5.0mm is the size of the chip and 60 being the number of chips in one metre length of the strip.

  • 5630/60

    A number that signif ies the size of the chip and number of chips on the LED strip where 5.6mm x 3.0mm is the size of the chip and 60 being the number of chips in one metre length of the strip.

  • Lumens (lm)

    Lumens is the standard by which the amount of brightness / light emitted by a light source is measured.

  • 5630/72

    A number that signif ies the size of the chip and number of chips on the LED strip where 5.6mm x 3.0mm is the size of the chip and 72 being the number of chips in one metre length of the strip.

  • 3528/60

    A number that signif ies the size of the chip and number of chips on the LED strip where 3.5mm x 2.8mm is the size of the chip and 60 being the number of chips in one metre length of the strip.

  • RGB

    (Red, Green, and Blue) When you use RGB Color Changing LED Lights, you no longer have to decide which color to use. You can either allow the lights to cycle through a continuous color changing pattern, or stop the controller at any color you like. The possibilities are endless. Change your color scheme with the seasons, or simply at your whim with RGB Color Changing LED lights.

  • 3014/204

    A number that signif ies the size of the chip and number of chips on the LED strip where 3.0mm x 1.4mm is the size of the chip and 204 being the number of chips in one metre length of the strip.

COLOR TEMPERATURE SCALE APPLICATION

The term used in general illumination is CORRELATED COLOUR TEMPERATURE (CCT). CCT relates to the colour of light produced by a light source, and uses the Kelvin temperature measurement scale (SI unit of absolute temperature). It describes the relative colour appearance of a white light source, indicating whether it appears more yellow/gold ("warm") or more blue ("cool"), in terms of the range of available shades of white.
