LED SOX lamps directly replace your current HID lamps in all applications, without having to replace your luminaire. The switch will upgrade your current luminaires with a bright white light and a high-end colour rendering for a safe and productive work environment. The replacement guarantees a high energy efficiency with a saving of 65% on your energy costs. The products have a long lifetime up to 20 years, so your business process does not have to be interrupted unnecessarily to replace the lamps. That will safe you on expensive replacement costs and ensures a short payback period within <2 years, which falls within the warranty period of the lamps.
The cap/base of a bulb is the part that connects it to the socket in the fixture. In the UK, B22 (Bayonet) caps/bases are still the most popular, although E27 (Edison screw) caps/bases are becoming increasingly popular. GU10 is the most common cap/base for spotlights. Check which cap/base you need carefully as many other types are also available.
Colour temperature (Kelvin)
The colour temperature refers to the colour produced by a light. It's measured in Kelvin (K) and ranges from warm white (1700K - 3000K) to daylight white (6500K). Neutral white (3100K - 5000K) is mainly used for general lighting applications.
The colour code is a combination of the colour rendering index (CRI) and the colour temperature (K). The first number refers to the CRI (1 = very poor colour rendering, 9 = maximum accuracy). The second and third numbers refer to the colour temperature. For example, a light with a colour code of 830 has very good colour rendering and produces a warm white light.
Select the wattage of your conventional bulb to find the LED equivalent.
Beam Angle (degree)
The beam angle indicates the spread of the light in degrees. Small beam angles are preferred for accent lighting, while larger beam angles are for general lighting purposes.
