  • LED downlights and spotlights difference
    Oct 19, 2018

    product comparison


    Many people are confused about downlights and spotlights. I don't know the difference between these two types of lights, where to apply them to the home, and how the effects of the applications are different.

    Simply put, a downlight is a luminaire that is more concentrating than a conventionally mounted luminaire, typically for general or auxiliary lighting.

    A spotlight is a highly concentrated luminaire that emits light with a specific target. Mainly used for special lighting, such as highlighting a very flavorful or very innovative place.

    We distinguish between downlights and spotlights from these aspects.

    1. From the light source, the downlight can be equipped with an incandescent bulb or an energy-saving lamp. When the incandescent lamp is installed, it is yellow. The bulb type can be white or yellow when the energy saving lamp is installed. The direction of the light source of the downlight is not adjustable. Generally, household spotlights use quartz bulbs or lamp beads. Of course, large spotlights do not necessarily use quartz bulbs. Quartz bulbs only have yellow light. Moreover, the direction of the light source of the general spotlight can be adjusted freely.

    2. The downlights are generally installed in the ceiling from the application position. Generally, the ceiling needs to be installed above 150mm. Of course, the downlights are also external. It is a good choice to install a downlight in the area without a ceiling or chandelier, and the light is softer than the spotlight. Spotlights can generally be divided into orbital, point-and-hung and in-line. Spotlights usually have transformers, but there are also transformers. The built-in spotlights can be mounted in the ceiling. Spotlights are mainly used for places that need to be emphasized or expressed, such as video walls, paintings, ornaments, etc., which can be used to enhance the effect.

    3, from the price point of view of the same grade, spotlights are more expensive. Generally speaking, the domestic brands with better quality downlights include Op, Sanli, NVC, and Sanxiong Aurora. Among them, NVC and Sanli are the best value for money.

    Downlights are generally large (5 inches) medium (4 inches) small (2.5 inches) three. The market price of the trumpet in 2012 is between 20-15 yuan, the size of 28-32 yuan, and the size of 36-48 yuan. Of course, the above prices are all downlight shells. There are two kinds of downlights: horizontal insertion and vertical insertion. The price of horizontal insertion is a little more expensive than vertical insertion.

    It should be noted that spotlights are generally not used for close-range illumination of wool fabrics, and there is also a flammable barrier at close range, which may cause fire. Although the spotlight consumes a lot of power, it has a great effect in its proper position. The spotlights and the colorful light cups are decorated to have a different flavor.

    2. Turn off the power before installation to ensure that the switch is in the closed state to prevent electric shock. Do not touch the surface of the lamp after the lighting is on.
