Why One Lux at Five Hundred Metres is Relevant

20 November 2017

A popular measure of driving lights, “one lux at a distance” refers to how far the light from your driving lights will reach, with 1 lux being generally accepted as enough light to read a newspaper by. Easy to understand and reliable, one lux at a distance has become the benchmark on which we measure new products.


Lesson Two: Colour temperature and CRI

So what is colour temperature? Light colour temperature is represented in the unit of absolute temperature, Kelvin. To put these numbers into perspective, around our homes we typically choose lights with colour temperatures of 2700K (warm incandescent), 3000K (warm white halogen) and 3500K (household fluorescent).

How do you choose the best lights for your 4WD? There’s a lot of misleading information out there! We get it, you aren’t that into the specs and just want a good light for your 4x4. You’ve heard Lightforce are the best, but then you noticed we are talking “lux” when others are talking “lumens”, and the “lumens” number is higher… so what do you do? Lux and lumens are important, but one BIG mistake people make is thinking that the brightness has something to do with watts. It doesn’t.
