Dimension Warm Tone Dimming LED Bulb
From the manufacturer Satco, the premier supplier of a variety of lighting products, comes a new LED bulb that creates the mood you want. Have you noticed how LED lighting has changed the way we light our homes, our cars and even our holidays for the better? But there has been one feature of the LED bulb that is not always welcome. In most cases LED bulbs are dimmable, but it’s how they actually dim that may disappoint.
When a standard incandescent light bulb is dimmed, it is fed less electricity, thus illuminating less light. But one aspect that most everyone has come to enjoy and appreciate is how the glow gets warmer and warmer as the bulb dims down. It’s this warm glow that sets a mood, makes a room look cozy and lights a dinner party and its guests in just the right way. It’s that perfect candlelit-like evening out at your favorite restaurant. And it’s where most LED lamps end of up falling short. That is until the Dimension bulb by Satco.
When most LED bulbs are dimmed, they simply put out less light, but they don’t get that warm glow. The Satco Dimension LED reflector is different—it actually gets warmer as it dims, just like older incandescent bulbs. This is possible with two sets of LEDs and smart on-board electronics.
Think of running your tap water and gradually mixing-in hot water to get a temperature that’s just right.
Figure 1 The set of LEDs which are at a color temperature of 2700K are totally lit at full power delivering warm, familiar, comfortable light.
Figure 2 But as the lamp is dimmed, the 2700K LEDs get less power while the second set of LEDs, which are at very warm 1800K are given power.
Figure 3 As the lamp is dimmed further, the light from the two sets of LEDs continues to mix–less and less power goes to the 2700K LEDs and more and more goes to the warmer 1800K LEDs. The light output actually gets warmer and warmer with the lamp finally delivering a very warm 2200K.
The Satco Dimension is the best of both worlds—variable soft, warm light and energy efficiency in one lamp! We’re sure it will create the warm glow you’re after! (courtesy of the www.satco.com)
