Luminous Flux (Φv) is energy per unit time (dQ/dt) that is radiated from a source over visible wavelengths. More specifically, it is energy radiated over wavelengths sensitive to the human eye, from about 330 nm to 780 nm. Thus, luminous flux is a weighted average of the Radiant Flux in the visible spectrum. It is […]

Luminous efficacy is a property of light sources, which indicates what portion of the emitted electromagnetic radiation is usable for human vision. It is the ratio of emitted luminous flux to radiant flux. Luminous efficacy is related to the overall efficiency of a light source for illumination, but the overall lighting efficiency also depends on […]

Luminance a measure (in candelas per square metre) of the brightness of a point on a surface that is radiating or reflecting light. It is the luminous intensity in a given direction of a small element of surface area divided by the orthogonal projection of this area onto a plane at right angles to the […]

  The lumen (symbol: lm) is the standard unit for the luminous flux of a light source. It is an SI derived unit based on the candela. It can be defined as the luminous flux emitted into unit solid angle (1 sr) by an isotropic point source having a luminous intensity of 1 candela. The […]

LED chip diagram

LED Light Emitting Diode (LED) is a solid-state semiconductor devices, which can convert electricity directly into to light. LED’s heart is a semiconductor chip, one side of the chip is attached to a stent, the end is negative, the other side connect the positive terminal of the power, and the whole chip is packaged by […]

IP rating table

IP rating also named as INTERNATIONAL PROTECTION, is defined by the IEC (INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSION). It’s for grading the lamp in accordance with its dust / object protection level (protect from intrusion of objects) and waterproof level (protect from water and moisture). The objects referred here include: tools, fingers and so on. IP protection level […]

Illuminance is the total amount of visible light illuminating (incident upon) a point on a surface from all directions above the surface. This “surface” can be a physical surface or an imaginary plane. Therefore illuminance is equivalent to irradiance weighted with the response curve of the human eye. Standard unit for illuminance is Lux (lx) […]

The candela (abbreviation, cd) is the Standard International (SI) unit of luminous intensity. Like other SI base units, the candela has an operational definition—it is defined by a description of a physical process that will produce one candela of luminous intensity. Since the 16th General Conference on Weights and Measures (CGPM) in 1979, the candela […]

LED Species

In the 60’s, with the LED into the business after decades of development, has developed a number of species, the largest category of the mainstream are: 1) Common LED (Light emitting diode): We have called LAMP LED products, a product called the P2, but also called DIP LED’s, DIP LED also includes many types: By […]

About SMD SMD (Surface Mounted Diode): surface mount diodes or surface mount components are its name, SMD also has a variety of categories: By size: 0603,0805,1210,5060,1010 and so on. Generally, SMD are diamond-shaped, so its name is based on the size L * W, the LED industry use units of inches and metric to maned […]
