What is the Difference in the Type of Coating Offered?
Resin Dipped Coating (RD) is used for indoor applications where it could be damp such as bars, kitchens, bathrooms and the likes.
Silicone Cover Coating (SC) is used for outdoor applications where it could be damp such as under eaves.
Solid Silicone Coating (SS) is used for outdoor wet applications such as decks and sculptures.
Can I Dim LED Linear Lights and Versa Bars?
Yes, you can dim LED Linear Lights and Versa Bars with the use of a in-line dimmer or a wall dimmer.
How Do I Dim LED Linear Lights and Versa Bars?
LED Linear Lights and Versa Bars can be dimmed with an in-line dimmer or a wall dimmer. If dimming with a wall dimmer a dimmable driver is required (TDIMDRIVER). The TDIMDRIVER will need a specified Lutron CL Series or equivalent wall dimmer. Contact LLI for more information.
How Long Can LED Linear Lights and Versa Bars Run?
This depends on the light:
Single color linear lights have a maximum run with minimal light loss between 10 - 100 feet. The maximum run length varies by voltage (12V or 24V) and product. To find the maximum run for a particular product please refer to the product spec sheet.
RGB color changing linear lights have a maximum run of 16 - 98 feet, after which an RGB amplifier is required for every additional 16 foot section. To find the maximum run for a particular product please refer to the product spec sheet.
The maximum run for our standard Versa Bar series (Vsx) is 8 feet. For our Extra Long series (XLR), you can run up to 32 feet without noticeable light loss.
Where Can I Use LED Linear Lights?
LED Linear Lights can be used to light both interior and exterior space. Linear Lights can illuminate coves, under cabinets, counters, decks, stairs, pools and more. LED Linear Lights are very flexible and versatile.
What is the Difference between Efficacy and Efficiency?
Efficacy is the quantity of light emitted (total lumen output), where efficiency is a measure of how well a light source produces visible light.
What are the Advantages of Using LED Lighting Products?
LED lights are safety agency listed.
LED lights are usually 50% more energy-efficient.
LED lights contain no mercury making them environmentally friendly.
LED lights light instantly even in cold weather.
LED lights offer better quality light.
Ambient Temperature (Ta)
Air temperature surrounding the device
Unit of measurement for the rate of flow of electrical current.
Current (Amps) = Power (Watts) / Voltage (Volts)
General expression referring to the effect of a light source on the color appearance of objects.
Color Rendering Index (CRI)
Measurement of the degree of color shift objects undergo when illuminated by the light source. This is compared with those same objects when illuminated by a reference source of comparable color temperature. The reference source typically has a CRI of 100.
Object possessing irregularities on the surface causing a scattered reflection.
Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI)
Digital Communications Protocol for controlling and dimming lighting fixtures.
Electronics used to power the illumination sources.
Light output of a light source (lumens) divided by total electrical power input to the source (Watt). Lumens per Watt. (lm/W)
Measurement of the intensity of light falling on a surface area.
Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IES)
Recognized technical authority of illumination. The IES communicates information on all aspects of good lighting practices.
Junction Temperature (Tj)
Temperature of the LED’s active region.
Light Emitting Diode (LED)
A solid-state semiconductor device converting electrical energy directly into light.
International (SI) unit of luminous flux or the quantity of light equaling the amount of light spread over a square foot of surface by one candle power when all parts of the surface are exactly 12” from the light source.
Measurement of perceived power of light, adjusted to reflect varying sensitivity of the human eye to different wavelengths of light.
International (SI) unit of Illuminance.
Total energy emitted by a light source across all wavelengths. This is measured in Watts.
