Hey everyone, we wanted to share some information regarding light sources and beam patterns that might be useful when discussing lighting options or comparing products. We understand that this is a lot of information to take in all at once, but please don’t be intimidated Baja Designs is here to help. If you ever have any questions about any article or products, please feel free to ask us.
The technology for white LEDs is evolving quickly. Recent developments in highly efficient phosphor coatings are allowing manufacturers to create white LEDs with smaller die sizes and higher Lumens per Watt, in other words you have smaller and brighter lights.
We would argue that color temperature and optics are as important as lumen output in determining your choice of an LED light. Today we want to talk about Color Temperature. In the simplest of terms, color temperature indicates the color of a specific type of light source.
- Let’s keep it simple and take the sun at its highest and brightest point in the sky: high noon. At noon, assuming no additional effects from weather and atmospheric conditions, the sun has a perceived color temperature anywhere between 5000K and 5400K.
