  • The table above is a quick reference. When calculating loads make sure you add direct and indirect LPW to get total wattage. Please refer to photometric report for detailed information.
  • Our light engines are precisely designed for optimal operation of LED assemblies.
  • Our standard LED's CCT (correlated color temperature) range is 2700K to 4000K. Other CCT values are available upon request.
  • We log LED bin codes for each project we supply to ensure color consistency and keep a record of those projects for future reference.
  • CRI offered is 80+, and 90+ Note: on 90+ CRI use .85 multiplier
  • Tunable white, warm dim and other special LED colors available.
  • We design our own printed circuit boards to ensure high luminescence efficiency, low thermal resistance and long-term reliable operation.
  • Light engines are easily replaced.
  • We use only recognized brand LED's with 3 SDCM (standard deviation color matching) with high color consistency. 2 SDCM available upon request.
  • LRP - “LED Reel Program” – LED’s for printed circuit boards come on reels’ like old 8mm projectors and they're sold in lots just like fabric.
