Cold white light

DEFINITION: Cold white light

What is cold white light?

There are many things to consider when buying LED lighting, namely: watt, Kelvin and lumens. In lighting terms, there is sometimes talk of cold white light. The light indicates how the lamp looks, or the light pattern. The higher the number Kelvin, the colder and whiter the light will be. Everything above 4500 Kelvin is considered to be cold white. Cold white is often compared to bright daylight. The light creates an energetic and active atmosphere. In addition, it is often compared to bright daylight. This light colour is often used in places where brightness plays an important role.

What is the difference between warm white light and cold white light?

The light colour of LED lights is represented by a corresponding colour temperature. The higher the Kelvin value, the cooler the colour of the light. The lower the Kelvin value, the warmer the light will be. Neutral white light is at the centre of the colour spectrum. Warm white light has a low Kelvin value of up to 3500 Kelvin. Cold white light has a high Kelvin value, namely from 4500 Kelvin. Furthermore, warm white light creates a relaxed and warm atmosphere. Compared to cold light, it ensures more productivity. Warm light emits a warm yellow colour, while cold light emits more of a white light.

How many Kelvin does my LED lamp need?

When choosing the right LED lighting, you have to take into account the right colour temperature. First of all, you will have to determine the purpose of the lighting. In a company car, for example, someone will want as much light as possible that provides a clear overview. In this case, you are looking for cold white light with a high Kelvin value. Are you looking for matching LED lights for your vehicle, but you can't work it out yourself? The TRALERT® technical team is at your disposal 5 days a week to support you.
