How to Choose the Right Beam Angle for LED Lights

LM-80 Test: All You Need To Know

  • What is Lumen Maintenance ?

It is important to get know well of lumen first. As usually, we refer to the amount of light emitted by the LED light source per unit time as the luminous flux, unit: lumen, LM. The amount of light is for light source, description of size of the total amount of light emitted by the light source, equivalent to the luminous power, and greater the luminous flux of the light source, the more light is emitted. When a luminaire ignites under specified conditions, the ratio of the luminous flux at a particular time during the life of the lamp to that of the initial of the lamp, expressed as a percentage. The luminous flux will be decreasing as increasing ignition time, so the effective life is defined by the lumen maintenance rate. When the luminous flux maintenance rate is lower than 50%, it can be regarded as the lamp has reached the service life, but the national standard requires the lumen maintenance rate of 2000H to be not less than 78%, the advanced level in foreign countries requires not less than 90% on same situation; the standard of the US Energy Star is that the lumen maintenance rate is not less than 80% at 40% of rated life.

A noun refers to “light degradation”, corresponding to the lumen maintance, of which is inversely proportional each other. The light degradation of LED is mainly affected by the following two factors:

1. LED quality: LED chip in it is not good, and brightness is attenuation in a faster speed. There exsits defect craft during production, and the heat dissipation of the LED chip cannot be well derived from the PIN pin, resulting in an excessive temperature of the LED chip, which intensifies the chip attenuation.

2. Using surroundings: The LED is driven by a constant current, and some of the LEDs are driven by voltage, which will make the LED attenuate faster. Obviously, the lumen maintenance rate is the core factor for judging the advantages and disadvantages of LED light sources.

  • What is LM-80 ?

As is well -known, working under a standard current and condition, LED will keep a long worklife, 50000 hours even longer. During spending the entire life, the LED light output is slowly depreciation , the spectrum may shift, resulting in color and luminious efficacy failure. In order to better promote the standard development, testing and certification of LED lighting product and regulate the LED market flourish, IESNA and ANSI jointly issued the LM-80 certification and TM-21.

In generally, LM-80 is a test for LED packages, arrays, and maintance lumen and color of modules. The testing time need to reach 6000 hours according to standard of Energy Start and IESNA LM-80, which can allow to do LM-80 testing certificate and reports using LED package, array, module optics. This report is a world-recognized international certification for the performance of products with a world-recognized and credible method, an important criterion for the quality of LED light sources.

LM-80 life requirement diagram

LM-80 life requirement diagram

In the LM-80 report, testing is required at least one product, at the same current, at three different temperatures (55 ° C / 85 ° C / optional temperature). When the LED device is used in the finished product, it will test the temperature of its corresponding point and the driving current of the LED. Comparing the temperature and current conditions of the finished product with the temperature and current conditions in the report, if the conditions in the report are more stringent, the reported data can be adopted.

During the LM-80 test, the aging process needs to be separated from the test process. The aging process must strictly control the temperature of the Tc to 55 degrees, 85 degrees, or the temperature specified by the supplier. After aging to the specified test interval, return to the test environment for photometric testing. The LM-80 requires testing of luminous flux and color parameters, and has high requirements for environmental control, temperature control of Tc, and power supply equipment, also has detailed requirements for tracking and recording of samples and aging processes. It can be said that passing the LM-80 certification is the highest recognition of the product, and it also means that it has achieved international leadership in terms of lumen maintenance and life, and can meet the demanding needs of the high-end LED intelligent lighting market.

  • How to judge a qualified LM-80 report?

How to assess the lumen maintenance rate of LED products is an important parameter to determine the quality of products, and is also an important indicator to distinguish the quality of light sources. The importance of LM80 to LED products is self-evident. So, how to judge whether a LM-80 report is qualified or not? In this regard, There are several points that are worthy of attention: 1, The luminous attenuation percentage and attenuation curve of the test product. 2, The color drift of the test product, that is, the color difference between 6000 hours and 0 hours.

Secondly, it is also worth noting whether the LM-80 reports has authorization, whether it meets the standard of test requirements, whether the sample quantity meets the requirements of the finished product energy efficiency certification, whether the color difference meets the standard requirements, whether the percentage of attenuation and its estimated life can meet the requirements.

LED Panel Lights What Makes It the Best Choice for Ceiling Lamps Anywhere

LED Panel Lights: What Makes It the Best Choice for Ceiling Lamps Anywhere

Whether it’s an office, designer shop, salon or a designer boutique, you know the importance of lighting and how it can create magic. Lighting in your homes, offices etc adds the wow factor to your exterior as well as interior setting, and it even affects our emotional behaviour, our stress level and mood. Because of this affect, it is important to invest good on lights, and LED Panel Lights as Ceiling lights for your space is the best option.

Extensive Light Coverage

All office settings and retail stores usually need bright lighting for better viewing of files, or designs or products etc. Dim lighting in such spaces can be very unsuitable and troublesome as it makes the customer uncomfortable to look at a product in a dim light. For this purpose, LED Panel lights as ceiling lights are best for substantial light coverage over the space. These are perfect because of their neutrality, they are not too bright or glaring to hurt your eyes and are excellent for places like offices and retail stores. The best part about using LED Panel lights for ceiling lights is that they can instantly be turned out without any warming up, which is both great for energy saving as well as safety purposes.

Customize Your LED Panel Lights

LED Panel lights can be used as ceiling fixtures and the amazing thing about it is that you can customize it according to your choice. These are mainly designed to replace the traditional fluorescent flat panels that cost a lot of energy and electricity. You can use the LED Panel lights in grid ceilings or even hang from hooks. There is a wide range of options available to choose from in terms of colour temperatures; these are warm, white, yellow, natural white, and daylight colour as well. There is also a variety of different sizes you can choose the LED Panel lights from, e.g. 2×2 feet, 2×4 feet etc. This means you can choose the right suitable lights according to your space.

How are LED Panel lights and LED Ceiling Lights Similar?

There remains a common confusion among people about the difference between LED Panel lights and Ceiling Lights; mostly because of their appearance. But their applications and effects are actually very different. The common things among both are that LED as a light source is completely environmentally friendly, it helps in saving energy, as well as it helps you in saving money. These are usually used for indoor lighting but can be used for commercial use as well. Now the contrasting factor is that the LED Panel lights are available in standard shapes, whereas the ceiling fixtures are available in different shapes and sizes which makes it more convenient for the customers to choose from. But usually, the most commonly used lights are shaped round or square, which are a pretty decent option for LED lighting commercially, so it comes out as the best choice.

Contrasting Differences between LED Panel Lights & Fluorescent Tube Lamps

Contrasting Differences between LED Panel Lights & Fluorescent Tube Lamps

Both Light emitting diodes and fluorescent lights are providing different lighting options. Both have numerous numbers of different applications. Both of these have a great light spread range due to which these lights can be seen in warehouses, outdoor and general room lighting. Actually the buyers do not have the general understanding of differences between the two technologies which usually accepts the decisions. Definitely if you will not have the enough knowledge about these two you will take wrong decisions. Both fluorescent lighting system and LED panel lighting system are entirely using different type of technologies. We will give you a knowledgeable comparison between the two different technologies.

LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes)

This technology was firstly developed in 1962. It is using “light emitting diode” which is a semi-conductor. This material has dual characteristics of both electrically conductive and a insulative material. These LED lights can emit a broad spectrum of light colors. The broadness of the spectrum is directly proportional to the composition of material used in semi-conductor. LED lights are not emitting significant amount of heat.

Fluorescent Lamps

This technology was first experimented in 18th century. It is made up of mercury vapor and a phosphor coating on the inside. When electric current passes through the tube it instigates the mercury vapor which causing it to emit ultra-violet light. After the emission the phosphor coating in the fluorescent light will absorb the ultra violet light and it re-emit it in the form of visible lighting. These fluorescent lights are usually coming in long glass tubes. Due to the involvement of mercury in its production it is very much hazardous waste as it is difficult to dispose it off properly.

Major points of differentiation b/w LED Panel Lights and Fluorescent Lamps are following:


LED pan el lights are very much efficient in comparison with fluorescent lamps. Efficiency usually measures with the lumens per watt. The results show that fluorescent lamps are not showing good results.


Lifespan of LED panel lights have a larger lifespan in comparison with fluorescent lighting. The basic advantage of larger lifespan of LED lighting is due to the less emission of heat whereas the fluorescent lamps are using the technology which emits more heat which is not enabling them to have a larger working life.


LED lights are usually much smaller than the traditional size of fluorescent lights. LED lights usually take smaller space and their installation is ease. LED panel lights can also be replaced whenever it is required where as fluorescent lamps are not giving the users this advantage.

Cost Reduction

Due to multiple comparative advantages LED panel lights are reducing your cost whereas you need to replace the fluorescent lamps frequently. At the time of purchasing probably LED lights will cost you more than fluorescent lights but in the long run LED panel lights will be more beneficial especially concerning the rising economical trends of the country.

How to Choose the Right Color Temperature for Home and Office LED Lights

How to Choose the Right Color Temperature for Home and Office LED Lights 

If you are an ordinary homeowner or a lighting designer then you are probably look for the right color temperature for home or office LED lights. The color temperature plays a significant role in the ambiance of the space which is why it is important to choose the right color temperature. In this post, the best tips will be provided to help you choose the right color temperature for LED lights.

What is color temperature?

The color temperature is used for describing the color shading of the light that is given off. The term is used in science and physics for the temperature of a hot glowing black body radiation. You probably might be thinking that how come the higher color temperature is described as being a cooler color while the lower color temperature is thought of as warm. The fact is that the color temperature is measured in degrees of Kelvin on a scale of 1000 to 10,000.

How to choose the correct color temperature for home and office LED lights

The LED light color temperature has been assigned using the basis of CCT (correlated color temperature). Daylight, cool white and warm white are the three types of colors. People will have a different feeling towards a different color temperature. As an example, the warm white might make people feel warm. The color temperature of the LED lighting is chosen on the basis of the ambience that is to be created.


Normally, it is said that 70 percent of the LED lamps need to be 2700K – 3500K. It is what a normal incandescent would look like. Any lower color temperatures should not be considered. It is perfect for bedrooms, living rooms, the kitchen and dining room.


For rooms that are less cozy such as the gym, game room or office, the 4500K – 5000K is ideal. It helps create a much cooler environment while allowing the occupants to be more alert. Rooms will appear brighter since concentration would be needed.


Normally, a color temperature of 6000K – 6500 K does not need to be used unless there is a critical task that needs to be performed in the room such as a hobby room, garage or shop. However, there is nothing wrong with opting for temperatures that are 5000K or under.

Exterior lighting

Now, the exterior lighting depends on how you would like to feel. If you want a more homely look than 3000K should be used. However, for a less inviting look, 3500K should be great. As an example, LED flood lights can be used to light plants in the backyard. LED lighting is perfectly energy efficient as compared to their traditional counterparts. They help save you many costs such as electricity bills and more.

Different LED lights can be used for different spaces to create the intended ambience that is required for the area. There is a difference between the color temperature for a home and an office.

What Is the Difference Between SMD and COB LED Lighting

What Is the Difference Between SMD and COB LED Lighting?

SMD means Surface Mounted Device and COB stands for Chip On Board. Light emitting diode or LED for short has become highly popular. The Surface Mounted Device (SMD) was initial presented in 2008. Whereas, the COB LED technology has been available since 2010 in Guangzhou at the Canton Fair.

These SMD chips are of various colors such as Blue, Green and Red which helps produce tinted lights. The COB LED lights are either ceramic or light weight aluminum.

What is an SMD LED Light?
SMD lights use SMT technology which places the LED chip onto a PCB. The PCB board is constructed in a flat item, rectangular-shaped, and is what one said as an SMD. One can see a tiny black point at the center of the SMD if you look carefully in an SMD LED, it is the LED chip. The rear side of it has two steel points (cathode as well as anode) which are made use of for soldering with the circuit for the light.

The 5050 SMD has three steel points as there are three chips inside. The SMD Led has different types, such as 5730, 5630, 5050, 3030, 3014 and also 2835. Each of these is called according to the measurements of the LED meaning it is based on the width and length. Prior to the COB was created, the SMD 5050 as well as 3528 was made use of.

What is a COB LED?
The COB LED uses the brand-new encapsulation innovation. As compared to the SMD 5050: 3 chips or the 3528: 1 chip, the COB LED has numerous chips on the same printing circuit board (PCB). The PCB gets on the substrate of the COB. The diode chips of the COB are ranged in series/ or parallel which depends upon the circuit. This substratum can either be ceramic or light weight aluminum. If you are searching for a much better thermal conductive efficiency, then the ceramic type is what you need as it will guarantee a much lower LED running temperature.

The COB LED has 2 metal link points, the cathode and anode. The COB has a better thermal conductivity as compared to the SMD, due to the fact that it mounts chips straight to the substrate that has a substantial cooling space. In order to have the COB dimension to be as little as possible, the circuit needs to be made to reduce the chip’s distance.

COB LEDs are available in different forms which make it easier for them to be utilized for different fittings. Whereas, SMD lights can just be made use of for restricted fittings, there are lots of advantages of using COB LED lights such as far better thermal conductivity as well as lower manufacturing failing rates as a result of the patent layout.

Choosing between SMD and COB LED lamps relies on your requirements. Both of the lights are being utilized for various applications. When choosing in between the two lights, first know about which fixture is being used for. LED lights have changed the entire lights market.

How to Choose the Right Beam Angle for LED Lights

How to Choose the Right Beam Angle for LED Lights

The right beam angle of the LED lights plays a huge role which is why it is important to choose the right one. Nobody likes walking into a dimly lit space. One of the reasons behind it is the wrong beam angle of the lights. In this post, you will learn how to choose the right beam angle for LED lights.

What’s a beam angle for LED lights?

It is the angle for the LED light which spreads across the area when the LED light gets switched on. Beam spread is another name which is used to describe it. Choosing the right beam angle allows the building to have the type of visibility and ambience that you want. The main consideration of the beam angle for LED lights is the space that should be lit. There are certain considerations which need to be taken into account.

  1. Building Type

The first thing which needs to be considered is the building type. You have to consider how many lighting fixtures would be needed for the building. It is only then that you would be able to choose the right beam angle. The beam angle depends on the height of the ceiling as it impacts the visibility and illumination. An example would be a warehouse that has high ceilings that would require an LED high bay light that has a different beam angle as compared to a retail outlet.

  1. Number of LED Lights

The number of lumens required for a space needs to be determined and in order to do the number of LED lights needs to be considered. For a commercial space, 70 lumens would be needed per square foot. A lighting layout design plan is a great way to figure out the beam angle for LED lights. To get a number in total lumens, the industry standard would be multiplied by the area of the building.

  1. Height of Light Fixtures and Ceilings

The height of the ceilings needs to be checked to ensure that the beam angles overlap. Overlapped beam angles ensure that the entire space has been covered by light which helps prevent any injury. Normally, the height of a ceiling is anywhere around 7.9 and 8.9 ft. Therefore, a wider beam angle of 60 or more degrees would be sufficient. However, if the ceiling height is over 8.9 ft then a narrow beam angle that is below 45 degrees would need to be considered.

  1. LED Light Bulb Type

Now, it is important to consider the LED light bulb type as it influences the amount of light that is given to a space. There are different types of LED bulbs out there. For example, in industrial spaces that have high ceilings, the higher the lighting fixtures, the narrower the beam angle would need to be. As for a lower ceiling, the beam angle needs to be wider. A reflector which be needed if you are using high bay lights.

How to Choose the Right IP Rating for Interior and Exterior LED Lights

How to Choose the Right IP Rating for Interior and Exterior LED Lights

There are different types of LED lights that have the IP rating which you might have come across. Did you know what an IP rating is? In this post, you will gain some tips about the IP rating for interior and exterior LED lights which will help you choose the right one.

1. Types of Different LED Lights That Are Waterproof

Everyone knows that when water and electricity meet, something is bound to happen. It can lead to a deadly shock which could even be life-threatening at times. Water can ruin the LED lights quickly or over time and that is why waterproof LED lighting is the way to go. It will also help extend the lighting fixtures life. IP rating IP65 is mostly used for waterproof LED like the LED street light or LED flood light. The waterproof levels vary significantly due to different IP ratings.
The complete waterproof LED lights are different from the water resistant lights. The difference between the two is that waterproof lights are designed to sustain any amount of water, while the water resistant lights can only work for a certain amount of time as exposure to water affects them. There are various advantages to LED lights such as energy saving.

2. IP Ratings for LED Lights

There are different Ingress Protection ratings for outdoor and indoor lights. The rating is used for the measurement of protection that the LED light would have against solid and water. Two numbers are used in the IP rating. The first is from 0 to 6 which is a solid IP rating and shows the resistance against solid. While the second is 0 to 8, this shows the protection against water.

IP67 Rating
LED lights that have an IP67 rating provide complete protection against water and solid. They are quite similar to IP64 and IP65. Even if the LED light is immersed in water depth of 1m there would be no effect. IP65 LED lights are the most common waterproof LED lights. Maximum protection against solid and liquids is provided. They can be used for both commercial and domestic purposes. However, if the lights are to be used in place where there is a risk of water, then LED waterproof lights would be needed.

IP65 Rating
They are great for protection against water jets and foreign bodies. If water is disposed by a nozzle of just 6.3mm, it would cause no damage. It is perfect for outdoor lighting fixtures.

IP64 Rating
This is the highest rating for the most LED corn light bulb. It provides good protection against solid and liquid.

IP54 Rating
They have complete dust protection. But for liquids, they only provide protection against splashing water which is why they are common among indoor fixtures.

IP40 Rating
They are used in an indoor or enclosed fixture. It should not be used in the outdoor and only for the indoors unless there is a lot of humidity.
