Different waterproof levels and purchase instructions for LED projection lamps

LED floodlights are often used in the field of small project lighting, and can realize the control and needs of various lighting transformations. It is precisely because of this feature that floodlights are often used for outdoor use that their waterproof performance is particularly important. So what are the different waterproof levels of LED floodlights, and what are the different waterproof effects?

1. Waterproof rating of LED flood light

The IP protection level of outdoor lamps is generally IP23 or above, and needs to be marked. The waterproof level of LED flood light is generally IP65 , IP66 and IP67. The specific explanations are as follows:

  • Waterproof grade IP65 can prevent the water from the nozzle from all directions intruding into the electrical appliance, but it cannot be immersed in water for a long time;

  • The waterproof level IP66 is interpreted as " the electrical appliances installed on the deck can prevent damage caused by the invasion of large waves";

  • Waterproof grade IP67 is interpreted as "the electrical appliance is immersed in water for a certain period of time or the water pressure is below a certain standard, which can ensure that it will not be damaged due to immersion in water".

Therefore, in principle, IP65, IP66 and IP67 cannot be immersed in water for a long time. If you need to immerse in water for a long time, it is best to use IP68 LED floodlights. On the other hand, no matter what the waterproof level of the LED flood light is, if you are in a humid and rainy environment for a long time, you should also pay attention to regular maintenance and maintenance work, so that the service life of the lamp can be longer.

2. LED flood light purchase guide

Whether the light source has high light efficiency and low light decay: ensure that the light source is bright and durable;

Whether the overall sealing of the lamps meets the standard: ensure waterproof performance;

Whether the design and selection of the lampshade is reasonable: ensure the explosion-proof performance;

Whether the material of the lamp body is rust-proof: guarantee the life of the product;

Whether the heat dissipation capacity of the materials used in the lamp body is qualified: ensure the heat dissipation performance.
