The market penetration of LED street lamps is getting higher and higher, but everyone has begun to discuss other LED issues.

With the arrival of 2022, there seemed to be many more pedestrians on the streets in the evening.

The street is very beautiful at night under the LED street lamps. The LED street lamps on the streets emit yellow light, and some emit white light. In our impression, the LED street lights in the city are generally full of warm yellow light.

The LED street lamps on a small part of the road are white light. Why is this?

In fact, the difference between yellow light and white light lies in the choice of color temperature of LED street lights.

In many people's impressions, LED street lamps are efficient and cool white, which may cause dazzling feelings for people driving at night, but in fact the color of the street lamps is not fixed.

The color temperature of the LED street lamp is white light emitted at around 5000K, and yellow light or warm white light at around 3000K.

In fact, about 3000K yellow light or warm white light is more suitable for road lighting, and the color temperature of LED street lamps around 5000K is not suitable for road lighting. However, in larger scenes, such as highways, visibility can be increased and accidents can be reduced.

Because the color temperature of 5000K will make people visually very cold and dazzling, which will lead to excessive fatigue.

And under this color temperature condition, people's ability to observe distantly will also decrease, reducing driver driving safety. In addition, in the rain and fog weather, the LED street lamp of 5000K color temperature has poor penetrating ability, which also affects the safety of pedestrians.

Of course, the color temperature depends on the local environment to choose the right color temperature.
