7 details of LED linear lights

Why are the linear lights installed in other people’s homes so beautiful, but the linear lights installed in your home are so beautiful that there are no dark areas at the ends of the wires, and the wattage is so high that it is eye-catching. If you are still confused, how to choose? Let me give you some advice,

  1. Power: The power of linear light strips is 6 to 14 watts. Choose according to your own lighting scene habits. The living room should be bright, the hallway should be moderate, and the bedroom should be dark.
  2. Color temperature: The color temperature of the light strip is between 3000K and 4000K. If you want a stronger atmosphere, use 3000K. If you want something brighter, go for 4000K.
  3. Mask: The linear lampshades currently on the market come in two colors, white and black. They have different colors and different luminescence rates. The linear light luminous rate of the white mask reaches 80% and the wall will be brighter, while the luminous rate of the black mask is around 40%. So use a white mask for the main light and a black mask for the atmosphere.
  4. Front installation. Many people like to install linear lights from the front, but they also find it dazzling when the light source shines directly into the eyes. If you want to improve, you can replace the white mask with a black mask. Please refer to the third reason, or replace the light strip with a lower wattage so that it will not be so dazzling.
  5. When the linear light is turned on, the light bar explodes and there are obvious light spots. This problem usually occurs in thin-line lamps (generally the height of the aluminum groove is less than 11mm, and the density of lamp beads in the lamp strip is low – less than 120 pieces). The solution is very simple. After being installed directly with the cob light strip, the light is rich and even without spots, which is a perfect solution.
  6. Dark areas: A light strip composed of multiple beads is prone to such dark areas. You can choose a bead lamp strip to solve this problem.
  7. Slot, because there are many types of linear lights with different sizes. The safest grooving size is to just get the profile and then grooving it.

How to solve the problem of LED lamps flickering?

As a new type of lighting equipment, LED lights have been widely used, and the trend of replacing other light sources is becoming more and more obvious. But it is undeniable that as far as the current technology is concerned, stroboscopic LED lamps are common. So, how do we ordinary people solve the stroboscopic problem?

First of all, what is the strobe of a lamp?

According to tBaidu Encyclopedia’s explanation, stroboscopic means looking at the screen of one electrical appliance on the screen of another electrical appliance. On the screen of the other electrical appliance, a bright line will move from the bottom to the top of the screen, and then appear from the bottom again. If this goes on indefinitely, it gives us the feeling that the image is flickering.

This explanation in the encyclopedia is too technical. Zhihu author: Shrugged The author thinks the definition of stroboscopic is relatively easy to understand: stroboscopic, flickering with frequency, and the rapid and repeated changes of light over time are called stroboscopic, directly The feeling is that the image is jumping and unstable.

Second, to what extent do LD lamps/light sources flicker and have an impact on our human body?

Most people can perceive strobes below 50 or 60 Hz. When the frequency reaches a certain level, the human eye will regard the flickering light as a continuous source. This frequency is called the “critical flicker frequency” (CCF).

CCF varies from person to person and in different situations for the same person, but most people have CCF values that do not exceed 100 Hz. Many people feel very uncomfortable when faced with strobes below 50/60 Hz, and some people are still uncomfortable between 50-100 Hz. So what frequency is needed to eliminate this effect? It varies from person to person, some say 160 Hz, 200 Hz, and some say 500 Hz, but the industry believes that there is no problem if it reaches kilohertz (KHz).

Third, what are the hazards of LED lamps/light source stroboscopic

Studies have shown that varying degrees of stroboscopic effects on people’s physiology and psychology, of course, are mostly negative, such as damaging vision, irritability, and inducing epilepsy. for example:

1. For sports venues that require lighting at night, such as billiards halls, table tennis halls, badminton halls, tennis halls, etc., the sports balls cannot be seen clearly due to flickering lights;

2. When taking photos and videos, if you use flashing lights, it will be impossible to avoid dark areas during photography and black scroll bars when filming;

3. Including strain fatigue, eye fatigue, blurred vision, migraine and vision loss;

4. The effect of low-fluctuation high-frequency flashing is not obvious, and migraine or severe headache may occur within a few minutes, often accompanied by symptoms such as nausea and visual disturbance;

Fourth, the reasons why LED lamps/light sources flicker

Most light sources have stroboscopic effects, but the degree varies. LED stroboscopic is largely not a problem with the LED chip itself, but comes from the driving and dimming components. Common causes of stroboscopic are:

1. Inferior driving components cannot reduce the “voltage and current output ripples” generated in the process of “converting from AC to DC” and from the driving components to the LED chip.

1. Inferior quality dimming components, either poor compatibility, or using low-frequency PWM dimming.

Fifth, are there any LED lamps/light sources that do not flicker?

It is impossible to be flicker-free in an absolute sense. The Chinese industry standard’s flicker requirement for qualified products is 3125Hz. From a professional point of view, the exact name of “no stroboscopic” is “imperceptible stroboscopic”. According to the “stroboscopic” requirements of the China Quality Certification Center for reading and writing desk lamps, “fluctuation depth” is a measure of the “stroboscopic” of desk lamps. ” standard value.

Take table lamps as an example. The national standard requires that the fluctuation depth of table lamps be less than 3.2% to be qualified. However, it turns out that many so-called “eye protection table lamps” on the market have fluctuation depths of more than 3.2%, which means that most of them do not “protect the eyes”. Eyes”.

Finally, what should we ordinary consumers do when faced with strobe?

As mentioned before, there are currently no lamps that are flicker-free, so we can only choose lamps with flicker within the acceptable range as much as possible.

1. It is recommended not to buy low-priced and low-quality LED products without any three certificates. Try to buy regular brand lamps and light sources.

2. Try to purchase lamps and light sources certified by the China Quality Certification Center (CQC).

3. The daylight lighting system can be used to introduce outdoor natural light into the room. After the natural light is processed by the system, it will not only be flicker-free and will not cause harm to human eyes, but will also block most of the ultraviolet and infrared rays. The light will be soft, the illumination is uniform, warm and comfortable. , let us bathe in natural light with peace of mind and return to nature.

Postscript: Lighting design is not about choosing lamps. It is a job that is both technical and artistic. If you really don’t have the time and expertise, you can consult recolux for free.

Why does the brightness of LED linear lights decrease during use?

With the accumulation of use time and the erosion of the sun and rain, the outdoor LED line lights will feel that the LED line lights are not as bright as before. This is a technical term in the lighting industry – light attenuation. The physical phenomenon of light decay is an inevitable problem for LED lights. Like life, lamps also have a service life.

In the outdoor environment, sunlight, strong wind, rain, etc. are all unavoidable factors that lead to the reduction of the brightness of LED line lights. In addition to the unavoidable conditional factors, there are also human factors. Typically, LEDs have a lifespan of approximately 50,000 hours. From the perspective of the average person’s mind, life has a total of 50,000 hours. If the lights are turned on from 6:00 p.m. to 12:00 a.m., it is only turned on for 6 hours a year. 365 days, only 2190 hours a year, this is not a time that can be used for 23 years.
However, this is only theoretical data in the laboratory. In actual use, the service life of LED linear lights cannot be calculated by mathematical multiplication and division. Misuse can also speed up the light decay time. Additionally, during installation, installers often want to save installation time and simplify the installation process. Several LED linear lights known to the manufacturer were not installed when powered on.
Behaviors such as voltage and current instability seriously damage the life of the LED linear light. According to market feedback, the service life of general outdoor LED linear lights is 2-3 years, and some can reach 5 or 6 years, but the longer the time, the lower the brightness of LED linear lights.
