Teach you how to distinguish between LED downlights and LED spotlights
- Jun 13, 2018 -

Many people think that LED downlights and LED spotlights are all used for home lighting. They should be the same type of product, but it is not. We can usually distinguish between the application location of the two and the application effect.

First of all, distinguish from the product performance:

The LED downlight is a type of lighting fixture that is embedded in the ceiling light and belongs to a directional lighting fixture. Only its opposite side can receive light.

The advantage is that it is more light-concentrating than ordinary lighting fixtures, usually used for general lighting or auxiliary lighting. With the continuous development of LED technology, the current life of LED downlights can generally reach more than 50,000.

1. The LED spotlight is generally embedded in a ceiling or a wall. It is a highly concentrated lighting product and usually illuminates its light to a specified target position. Use light to emphasize important places. Because LED spotlights produce higher temperatures during operation, it is important to choose high quality products when selecting LED spotlights, otherwise there will be potential safety hazards.

At present, LED spotlights are mainly used for various types of commercial space lighting and architectural decorative lighting. At the same time spotlights are also divided into two kinds of low pressure and high pressure, it is recommended that consumers choose the best low-pressure spotlight, because the low-voltage spotlight is relatively long life, higher luminous efficiency.

The efficacy of spotlights is generally determined by the power factor. A good spotlight power factor can reach 0.99, but the price is much more expensive.

Second, in the application of the location to distinguish: LED downlights are mostly installed inside the ceiling, requiring ceiling to 150mm or more to install. Of course, LED downlights are also external. Generally choose to install LED downlights in the location of no ceiling lights or chandeliers, the light is slightly softer than the spotlights. LED spotlights can be divided into several categories: orbital, point-mounted and inline. Spotlights also have transformers and transformers. Phases are embedded in the ceiling, and LED spotlights are embodied in key illuminated locations such as TV walls, Logo backgrounds, and some important pendant accessories.

Finally, in the price to distinguish: The current market price of LED downlights 3-10W in the 40-100 yuan or so, more than 10W LED downlight more than 100 yuan, the price is mainly determined by the difference between the lamp shape and light source, the company The prices of LED downlights that are individually molded to shape are relatively higher. The price of LED spotlights is relatively cheaper. Tianxing Lighting 3W LED spotlights are around 30 yuan, and 5W LED spotlights are also around 40-50 yuan.
