Unlike incandescent bulbs that use heated filaments or fluorescent and HID lamps that pass electricity through gases, LED lights (light-emitting diodes) emit light through solid matter. This technology makes them a lot more versatile than other types of lighting, as they can be used for both general lighting and task-specific applications. They can even be used to produce colored light.
The cylinder shape of this type of lamp makes it ideal for accent lighting, especially when placed next to furniture or other items that need attention. They’re also popular in many different commercial and municipal applications, where they’re often recessed into the ceiling or wall to provide focused illumination over specific areas. They can also be used for outdoor lighting, as they’re typically waterproof and weatherproof to resist the elements.
This LED cylinder light has a slender design that will complement the most contemporary of decor styles. It is available in both warm and natural white, as well as cool bluish-white options. It’s easy to install, thanks to the built-in mounting system and included hardware. It’s also energy efficient, using only 6W of power to operate, making it a cost-effective option for commercial and residential use.
Its unique curved design and sleek finish make this cylinder light the perfect choice for illuminating any indoor or outdoor space. It features a high-quality LED array with COB technology for maximum efficiency. It can be mounted vertically or horizontally and comes with a sturdy metal construction. It’s also rated for wet locations, so it can withstand a variety of weather conditions.
With an angled back plate, this cylinder-shaped fixture will blend seamlessly into any wall. It’s also designed for use in recessed installations, so you can mount it flush against the ceiling. This recessed light is perfect for kitchens, living rooms, and bedrooms. It also has a multicolor color-changing feature that lets you match the lamp to your mood.
In addition to positioning and rotation controls, this light has a number of other material-related properties that can be adjusted: Radiance, Shadow Type, Samples, Cylinder Radius, and Length. These properties determine the amount of light that is emitted from the surface of the bulb. This information is very useful when creating a virtual prototype, as it allows you to see how the brightness of the light changes at varying distances from the model.
Another way that this light is different from other light sources is how it ages over time. Unlike traditional incandescent bulbs, which “burn out” when they reach the end of their rated life, LEDs experience gradual dimming instead. This gradual change is called lumen depreciation, and it’s a great way to plan for replacement costs without having to replace your entire fixture. ENERGY STAR-certified lights are tested to ensure that they manage heat properly to prevent lumen depreciation throughout their rated lifetime.
