Convert watts to lumens: We make all the light
The lumen (lm) is the unit measuring the luminous flux. The lumen value indicates the amount of light actually emitted by the bulb. The term lumen comes from Latin and means light.
“The lumen remains the determining value of the brightness of a light bulb. “
It’s a safe bet that it will not be very clear if we persist in considering the wattage value of a luminaire at the time of purchase. In these times of modern LED lighting technologies, what really matters is the value in lumens – a concept that describes the brightness of a bulb much better than the good old watt.
How to convert watts to lumens
For those who are still struggling to no longer count in watts, it is possible to convert the data expressed in watts into lumens. How to shed light on this point? This is where a simple rule comes into play:
Number of traditional watts x 10 = value in lumens
Lumens indicate brightness more accurately than watts.
To determine the exact lumen (lumen) to replace your old 60 watt incandescent bulb or other bulbs, use this watt-lumen converter.
Select your bulb model:
Paulmann LED bulbs save at least 80% of the power consumption of a traditional incandescent bulb. They comply with energy efficiency classes A, A + or A ++.
What is the difference between omnidirectional and reflectors?
The lumen (lm) is the unit of measurement of luminous flux emanating from a 360 ° illuminating lamp, whether it is omnidirectional (with incandescent bulb) or reflectors.
However, the basics of calculating the brightness of omnidirectional and reflectors are different:
