This 10 watt MR16 is a special design MR16 lamp that utilises Luminus COB LED chip technology, combined with a purpose crafted reflector to produce an extra small beam with a high CRI (colour-rendering index) and minimal glare.
While our standard lamps are CRI ratings of 80, our extra warm white high CRI lamp measures 95 CRI, and our 4000K measures at 90. Great for artwork displays, galleries, elevators, clothing stores, displays and more.
What's the difference between Lumens and Candela?
Lumens – The measure of the total amount of light from a given source. Not the actual brightness since the total light output is unfocused.
Candela – The power emitted by a light source in a particular direction. 1 candela =
1 “standard candle”
This lamp has been specifically designed to produce an extra small beam of 13 degrees. And as such the candela rating is much more important than lumens in this instance as it is the actual measure of brightness in a focused beam. Lumen refers to the total light output, not a measure of light when focused in one direction.
What is CRI?
A color rendering index (CRI) is a quantitative measure of the ability of a light source to reveal the colors of various objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source. With lighting the closer the value to 100, the better it is for representing true colour. This is particularly important for high end clothing shops, photographers, artists and museums.
