What does LED stand for?
Light emitting diode.
Are more LEDs better?
More is not always better! We design each OttLite LED lamp to provide:
- the right amount of illumination
- configured in a way that creates an ample area of illumination on your workspace
We select high quality LEDs, arrange them to maximize light output, and add high-quality diffusers to properly and uniformly distribute the light. The result is light output without hot spots or shadows.
What are lumens and what is considered a good lumen output?
Lumens are a measure of how much light you are getting from a light source.
When we design and OttLite lamp, we make sure the lumen output produces a great visual experience for our customers. The biggest factors that come into play are the size of the lamp, the size of the light output area and how the lamp will be used. We measure the distance from the workspace to the LEDs and determine what the best amount of lumens will be – not overpoweringly bright or too dim.
What do you mean by "color temperature"?
Color temperature is measured in Kelvin (K), which tells you what the light output will look like -- warm light, cool light, daylight -- so you can choose the best light for your space and activity. OttLite LED lighting provides natural daylight illumination measuring approximately 5000K. OttLite natural daylight illumination is perfect for seeing colors accurately and details clearly!
