What are Watt & Lumen, and how much do I need?

  • Lumen

Lumen is a term that indicates how much brightness a light source produces, it can be recognised by the symbol "lm".  In the past, people looked at how many watts and light output, the more watts the more light output. Now, with LED LED lighting requires less wattage and you can have the same amount of light output or more. have. For example, you can have a 5 watt LED bulb that is just as bright as a 50 watt light bulb of 50 Watts. 

Unlike incandescent lamps, LED lamps produce little or no heat. LED lamps also have a much longer service life. You don't have to miss out on the cosy appearance of an old-fashioned light bulb, at INTOLED we have recently come up with the perfect solution: the LED filament lamp. It is an energy-efficient LED lamp with many lumens, which looks like an old-fashioned light bulb.

The wattage means the consumption of the lamp, which has a nice correlation with LED lighting. this has a nice correlation. LED lamps require a lower wattage and can produce many lumens in contrast to halogen and incandescent lamps.
