The new retrofit XGEN 7 watt GU10 LED uses the latest in LED technology to produce a light output of between 510 - 565 lumens. Depending on the colour temperature chosen. 3000k, 4000k, or 6000k. This lamp
utilises a specialised anti-glare lens to deliver an even coverage of light which is spread out over a 60 degree beam
angle. Designed to significantly reduce energy consumption and lighting bills by up to 90%, research has shown this could
save you as much as £150 over the lifetime of the bulb. With a choice of dimmable or non-dimmable, this GU10 is also
available in 3 different colour temperatures allowing you to achieve your desired lighting effect with ease. Now in Warm
White, Cool White and Natural White.
If you are looking for a standard ‘halogen style’ lighting effect we would advise a Warm White LED bulb, this softer yellow colour is more tranquil and welcoming. Natural white is a little cleaner in appearance with just a hint of warmth. If your preference is a pure white modern look, or you require lighting where accurate colour reproduction is important, we would advise a Cool White LED bulb for a cleaner and brighter light.

The colour of a lamp is defined as a measurement called kelvins. A standard GLS light bulb in your house would be 2,700 kelvins which is in the warm colour spectrum and a lamp with 6,000 kelvins would be at the very cold white spectrum. Getting the right colour temperature of a lamp does matter as the warm coulour wavelength helps to soften skin tones and gives a warm soft relaxed feel and at the other end of the scale a 4,000 to 6,000 kelvin lamp colour would be used in offices or a fast food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable and relaxed and more alert. There’s nothing that can sour your opinion of a compact fluorescent or LED lamp like buying a 4000K or 5000K bulb when you meant to buy a 2700K bulb, or vice-versa. When you buy a new, energy efficient bulb, keep your application and color scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match.
The amount of light that is produced by a lamp is called lumens and the more lumens
the lamp has the brighter it will be. Lumens work in conjunction with kelvins and
watts should not be taken in isolation of each other, for example if you had a very
warm white lamp at 2,700 kelvins and it produced 300 lumens and you then had another
lamp which was a cool white 6,000 kelvins which also produced 300 lumens the cooler
lamp colour would always appear brighter to the naked eye than the warmer one this
is due to the receptors in the eye that react better to a white light spectrum. Another
factor on how bright a light may appear is contrast so if you shine a white 6,000
kelvin light on to a dark wall and a warm 2,700 kelvin lamp on to a white wall the
warmer lamp would appear brighter due to the contrast of the material it is focused
on. So when choosing a lamp always take in to account the area you want to illuminate
and think about Kelvins ( colour ), Lumens ( brightness) and contrast
( colour of area ) The more lumens produced per watt the more energy efficient
the lamp will be, for example you can have a 25w candle lamp that produces 170 lumens
or a more energy efficient 18w candle lamp that produces 180 lumens so even though
the wattage is smaller the lumens are greater which makes it use less electricity.
That's what makes LED lights so energy effective as they can produce 700 lumens from
a 5w lamp.
Light levels are measured in something called LUX. Put simply LUX is a measurement of light falling on a given surface area. For example an average LUX of 200 would be needed for an outdoor tennis court for recreational purposes and a side street walkway would have an average of 5 LUX. To calculate lux levels you need a very good calculator or computer as there is a number of factors that need to be taken in to account.Lux levels can be effected by a beam angle of a lamp, for example if you had a 50w 38 degree MR16 halogen lamp at 3 mtrs from the floor and another 50w 10 degree MR16 lamp placed next to it, the one with the 10 degree beam angle would record a higher lux level due to the concentrated light in a small area so you could drop the 50w lamp to a 35w lamp to save energy and still achieve the desired light level.
Sunny June day 80000 Lux
Bad light stopped play at Lords 1000 Lux
A well lit office 500 Lux
Main road lighting 15 Lux
A residential side street 5 Lux
A clear moonlit night 0.2 Lux
