What does volt mean?
Volt is an abbreviation for the word voltage. The letter "V" indicates the voltage. The word is derived from the Italian inventor Alessandro Volta. Among other things, the Italian is also the inventor of the electric battery in 1800. The number of Volts indicates the amount of voltage present at a connection point. Lighting is suitable for a specific voltage. For vehicles, they usually come equipped with a 12-volt or a 24-volt connection. Of course, TRALERT®'s LED lighting is also focused on this. In fact, most TRALERT® lighting is equipped with multivoltage, meaning the lighting works on different connections.
Volts in combination with Amps and Watts
Volt is often associated with the terms Ampere and Watt. They all have something to do with each other, but they are certainly not the same. Voltage indicates the electrical potential. Ampere indicates the current, and Wattage indicates the power consumption. Explained further, Ampere indicates how many electrons flow through a device. Volt then indicates how much energy each of these electrons carries. Wattage then shows how much energy the device actually consumes per second.
Where can I find the voltage?
As previously mentioned, the voltage is often indicated by the letter "V". The voltage is always specified with the TRALERT® products. This is done because the voltage is very important when purchasing LED lights. You can also always find the voltage in the specifications of the product. Most lights in the TRALERT® assortment are multivoltage anyway. So you do not have to worry about this. If you still cannot work it out, you can always contact us.
