Generally speaking, traditional floodlights use a kind of halogen lamps, halogen lamps are characterised by a high light density of cd/M², commonly illuminated in signboards, ballparks, or the external walls of buildings; however, the disadvantage is that the heat generated is more than 300 °C, and extremely high power consumption and fast light decay. Generally under normal circumstances only 3000-5000 hours life, another advantage of LED is that there can be different colour temperature from 2700K – 7000K, and even red, blue light different light colours.

Now the LED lamps can completely replace the halogen lamps, and the temperature is greatly reduced in 40-60 ° C or so, only need to use the LED 120-150W with the halogen lamps of 250W almost.

Traditional floodlights use reflectors to control the angle, but only 60° or 120°. However, the angle of LED can be controlled by the reflector, and the smallest one can reach 2°. The narrower the angle, the longer the range, a 5°50W floodlight can have a range of 50 to 60 metres.

In addition, as long as it is paired with a dimmer (power supply), it can be adjusted to any light or darkness. This is more versatile than traditional halogen lamps, and can be used on stage, in school halls, and so on.

Selecting the colour temperature of an LED floodlight

One of the most important specifications for floodlighting is colour temperature. If you want to accentuate an architectural style, warm white (2700-3000K) floodlights help to create a cosy and welcoming atmosphere. They are ideal for homes or hotels.

For safety purposes a very cold white or daylight floodlight can be a good choice. This is because cold white light is brighter and therefore more visible to our eyes, and even more so when it is suddenly activated by the PIR sensor (see below).

If you want to buy floodlights for your workplace, a cooler colour temperature is wise. Not only does it look more natural, but it also stimulates alertness and concentration.
