What to pay attention to when purchasing LED floodlights


LED flood lights are high-power lights that can be used to illuminate large areas. They have many different uses. The common function of LED flood lights is to cover a large area of wide-angle light. LED floodlights have different shapes and sizes, which can be adapted to the different needs and requirements of customers. From the lighting of large stadiums and parks to the lighting of your own lawn, LED floodlights are very useful. They are mainly used outdoors, but you may see them also used indoors, for example to illuminate garages or warehouses. They are usually used for security and sometimes to illuminate advertisements such as billboards. Solar LED floodlights can be used in homes and parks to eliminate the need for direct electricity.

Matters needing attention when purchasing LED floodlights.

Use place: Where should the floodlight be placed? On the building, on the wall, on the ceiling, or elsewhere? Determining the location of the LED flood light will help you make the next choice.

Beam angle: Is the light you want to focus on or something that covers the entire lawn or any other space? For a wider space, you need an LED floodlight with a wider beam angle. Usually a beam angle of 120 degrees is very suitable for most needs.

Function options: In addition to the standard on/off switch, modern LED floodlights now provide a large number of operating options. You can choose the LED flood light that turns on when the sun sets and turns on at dawn. You can choose the motion sensor LED flood light, which will turn on when any movement is detected.

Lumens: Lumen needs to be selected according to the manufacturer of the environment. The higher the lumen, the higher the brightness. Different environments require different brightness. Your determination of your lux (or lumens per square meter) will depend on the lighting atmosphere you want, it depends on the size of the use scene and the lighting needs.

The quality of tempered glass: There are two kinds of processes, one is physical tempering and the other is chemical tempering. Distinguish between good and bad: Check for quality defects such as flatness, no bubbles, inclusions, scratches, thread and fog spots, etc., which will be deformed during use, reducing the transparency, mechanical strength and thermal stability of the glass.

Reflector: It mainly depends on no deformation, no spin embossing, no pinholes, bright surface, no obvious sand holes on the surface, good electroplating gloss, and uniform electroplating thickness.

LED integrated light discrimination: Check whether the chip meets the requirements through a microscope and whether the chip size is the required chip. Confirm the specifications and origin of the chip. Generally, the quality of imported chips is better than that of domestic chips. A chip with a large size is better than a chip with a small size.

LED power supply resolution: we need to start from the data. For example, it is enough to buy a 50W LED floodlight, and the power of the product given to you by the supplier is 56W or 46W, both of which are NG. Specific items are measured according to the standards at the time of purchase. LED power efficiency conversion rate and power factor determine the quality of this power supply, the better it is, the higher the value will be. Non-isolated power supply insulation protection is very important. Many low-end brand LED floodlights that many customers have bought have the feeling of electric shock on the surface.

Die-cast aluminum housing: The housing determines whether the product will dissipate heat well in the future and whether the light decay is within the normal range. In order to reduce costs, some manufacturers are very demanding in terms of aluminum materials, and choose some scrap materials to serve. Because customers have no way to distinguish between good and bad aluminum, the best way to distinguish is to buy products produced by regular manufacturers with guaranteed quality. In addition, the thickness and weight of the shell is also a criterion for judging its quality.

Advantages of LED flood light:

Long life: The largest LED flood light has a lifespan of 50,000 hours.

Less heat generated: LED floodlights have a lower operating temperature, so they don’t generate a lot of heat like fluorescent lights.

Energy saving: Switching from traditional halogen lamps to modern LED floodlights can save at least 88% of energy, so you don't need to pay extra for additional energy consumption.

Better CRI: Compared with ideal or natural light sources, LED floodlights have a CRI of 80, which makes objects and surfaces look realistic and non-artificial by up to 80%.

Ready to use: The product does not require any warm-up time or cooling to keep running. Observe the effect of solar street lights that are turned on immediately.

Environmental protection: LED flood light does not contain any toxic waste, nor does it leave any carbon footprint.

Motion sensor: The largest indoor and outdoor lights have motion sensors. This means that the sensor LED flood light will automatically turn off and on.

Dimmable option: Through the dimmable option, you can adjust the brightness of the LED light according to your needs.

Low maintenance: LED floodlights only require a one-time investment.

The performance optimization design of LED floodlight products is suitable for large-scale places with light requirements. High brightness and good color rendering. Precision pure aluminum radiator, with brand chip power supply, has the characteristics of anti-light decay, pure light color and anti-flicker. It is more energy-efficient than traditional metal halide lamps, and presents the actual color more realistically, making the visual sense more comfortable. However, there are still many things to pay attention to when purchasing, so that not only can you choose the LED floodlight that achieves the expected effect, but also make the quality of the LED floodlight more guaranteed.
