Color Temperature of Led Lights

What is Color Temperature of Led Lights?

Color temperature is a way to describe the light appearance provided by a light bulb (lamp). It is measured in degrees of Kelvin (K) on a scale from 1,000 to 10,000. Typically, commercial and residential lighting application Kelvin temperatures fall somewhere on a scale from 2000K to 6500K...

Colour temperature is a standard method of describing colours for use in a range of situations and with different equipment. Colour temperatures are normally expressed in units called kelvins (K). Note that the term degrees kelvin is often used but is not technically correct (see below).

Color Temperatures in kelvin units

Daylight, for example, has a lower color temperature near dawn and a higher one during the day. The standard unit of measurement for color temperature is Kelvin (K). Some typical color values include the following;
  • candles or oil lamps: 1000K
  • household light bulbs: 2500K
  • bright sunshine on a clear day: 6000K
  • very overcast sky: 10,000K

 Is Luminous Flux the same as Lumens?

...The SI unit of luminous flux is the lumen (lm). One lumen is defined as the luminous flux of light produced by a light source that emits one candela of luminous intensity over a solid angle of one steradian. In other systems of units,luminous flux may have units of power...
