Quality of light matters
Color Rendering Index (CRI) tells you how well different colors are reflected by the light source in comparison to sunlight. Index measured in range 0–100. Perfect 100 tells that the colors under the light source look the same as they would be under natural sunlight.
High CRI value is important especially at home, in photography, stores, markets, restaurants and other spaces where you want colors to look natural and rich. It is comfortable to spend time in a high-quality-lit spaces. Wellbeing increases. High quality of light is somewhat like a fast Internet connection. When you get used to it you don’t want to switch to worse anymore.
Measuring CRI value requires a special type of light tester. We have such a device. The color rendering index (CRI) of this LED downlight is over 80 and it means that the quality of light is good.
Dimmable 12 Volt LED downlight
Dimming the light can be done with a triac-dimmable LED driver that is compatible with most LED dimmers available in Finland. Compatible dimmers for example in ABB and Schneider selection. You can dim the lights in the range of 10% – 100%. The included LED driver will not make a squeaking or buzzing sound when dimmed and the light will not flicker. Correctly chosen dimmer will not make any kind of sound.
Compatible dimmers for example:
Other compatible dimmers are available for sure. The plastic cover of ABB dimmer fits on the first dimmer in the list.
Another option is to make the dimming on the 12 Volt side, in other words after the driver. In that case there are budget-friendly wireless LED dimmers available from pro or premium series.
What do I need for installations?
You will need the lights and a certified electrician. Technical details recommend 60-70 mm mounting hole. The diameter of the frame is 80 mm. Make a smaller hole than that to ensure the hole can be covered. The height of the light is 39 mm and an additional recommended cooling space of 25 mm. Unlike other LED downlights this one is a 12 Volt LED downlight. If you need for example 4 pcs of these = 4 x 5W = 20W and if you want to make them as one group you are going to need one LED driver. For example 30W 12V POS, 1 piece. These are a suitable replacement for 12V halogen lights and you will save on your electricity bill.
