The Patta-F round/square range of LED mains 220 - 240v fittings are the latest in LED outdoor recessed downlights and perfect for soffit areas, porches and exterior ceiling voids which have a material thickness of up to 20mm. When lighting is fixed into the soffit boards you will get great lighting effects as the integral warm white 3000k LED module will give out 765 Lumen with a 38 degree beam angle and the total consumption will be 12w.
The fitting is IP65 which tranlated for water ingress is protection against jetting water.
The fitting has a built in 500mA constant current driver and the COB (Chip on board) LED module should last up to 40,000 hours.
It also comes in two finishes Black and white and you can also have the square bezel version in the same colours too.
Wiring regulations would suggest that a ingress protection of IP23 would be sufficient in this location but using a fitting with a higher IP figure can only ensure extra protection in exposed locations.Where depth is available they can also be used in an entrance porch linked to a motion detection PIR so they come on only when required.
Lamp colour ( Kelvins )
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 colour 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 at fast food restaurants to make you feel less comfortable and relaxed and feel 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 colour scheme in mind and make sure to buy the bulb with a colour temperature to match.
Light output ( Lumens )
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 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 onto a dark wall and a warm 2,700 Kelvin lamp onto 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 into account the area you want to illuminate and think about Kelvins (colour ), Lumens ( brightness) and contrast (colour of area).
