About LED Underwater Lights

Underwater lights in pools

LED underwater lights are light fixtures that can work underwater, they have to be waterproof IP68, usually be used in swimming pools, garden ponds, fountains for general lighting and decoration landscapes. Because LED underwater lights are used under the water and need to withstand a certain pressure, they are generally made of stainless steel, 8-10MM tempered glass, high-quality waterproof joints, and a silicone rubber sealing ring. The led underwater lights need to be waterproof, dustproof, leakage proof, and corrosion-resistant.

LED Underwater Lights Instructions

LED underwater light is a kind of underwater lighting fixture that uses LED as the light source and is composed of red, green, and blue mixed colors. It is a perfect choice for fountains, theme parks, exhibitions, commercial and artistic lighting. In order to make the LED underwater light with better heat dissipation function, it is recommended to use the lights underwater.

In order to make the LED underwater light achieve a good waterproof effect, the protective effect of the LED underwater light should reach IP68, and the light can be placed below 5 meters from the water surface.

The LED underwater light uses a five-core wire to connect to the control system. The whole system includes a DMX controller, a distribution box, and lamps that can be placed in the water.

Most of the color-changing underwater lights can work in a DMX control system. Each unit has a separate address. The red, green, and blue lights are composed of corresponding 3 DMX channels. There are two control modes: external control and internal control. The internal control does not require an external controller and can be built in a variety of change modes (up to six), while the external control needs to be equipped with an external Dmx controller to achieve color changes. The applications on the market are also Mostly outside control.

Most of the LED underwater lights use super bright LED as the light source, and the bulb can emit light for 50,000 hours. Good light source materials make the lamp life longer and obtain the most satisfactory lighting effect.

LED Underwater Lights Precautions

LED underwater lights are underwater lights produced by LED technology. Compared with traditional underwater lights, LED underwater lights are more energy-saving and environmentally friendly, and the lights are varied and more decorative, so they are widely used in various landscape lighting systems. However, some problems in the installation of LED underwater lights require special attention.

The LED underwater light should be powered by a DC constant current power supply. Under the control of constant current power supply, the forward voltage drop of LED wall washer, LED flood light, LED underwater lamp, and LED underground lamp will decrease as the temperature of the LED chip increases. So it won’t have much impact. However, if it is driven by a constant voltage, the current of the LED underwater lamp chip will increase as the temperature rises, and the LED underwater lamp may even be burned in severe cases. Therefore, the LED underwater light should be powered by a DC constant current power supply.

Anti-static measures must be taken. During the process of processing, production, and installation of LED underwater lights, certain anti-static measures should be adopted, such as the workbench should be grounded, workers should wear anti-static clothing, anti-static rings, and anti-static gloves, etc., can be installed if conditions permit For the anti-static ion fan, at the same time, ensure that the air humidity is about 65% during installation to prevent the air from being too dry to generate static electricity. In addition, the antistatic ability of LEDs of different quality grades is different, and the antistatic ability of high-quality LED underwater lights is stronger.

Pay attention to the sealing of LED products. No matter what kind of LED lighting products, as long as they are used outdoors, they are faced with the problem of moisture-proof and sealing. This is especially true for LED underwater lights that are used under the water. Poor sealing problems will directly affect the service life of LED underwater lights.

Technical Indicators of LED Underwater Lights

Due to the particularity of the underwater color lamp application, it is an electrical product that works underwater, so it also has special requirements for its technical indicators.

Underwater inground Light

Firstly, the protection index of underwater colorful lights.

The protection index of underwater colored lights is divided into two aspects: dustproof and waterproof. The IEC standard stipulates that the internationally accepted protection marking symbols are as follows:

  1. Dustproof grade

According to the national standard, the dustproof grade of lamps is divided into 6 grades. Among them, level 6 is the highest, and the dustproof level of underwater colored lights should reach level 6, and its marking symbol is IP6X.

  1. Waterproof rating

According to the national standard, the waterproof grade of lamps is divided into 8 levels. The 6th level is water splash type, the 7th level is watertight, and the 8th level is pressurized watertight. The eighth level is the highest, and the waterproof level of underwater colored lights should meet the requirements of level 8, and its marking symbol is IPX8.

Based on the above two requirements, the underwater color lights have a dustproof level of 6 and a waterproof level of 8, and their marking symbol is IP68.

Secondly, safety indicators against electric shock.

The national standard has four categories of anti-shock indicators for lamps: Class O, Class I, Class II, and Class III. At the same time, the national standard clearly stipulates that underwater lighting fixtures in similar places such as swimming pools, fountains, and splash pools should be class III lamps for electric shock protection. The working voltage of its external and internal circuits should not exceed 12V.

Thirdly, the rated working voltage.

The rated working voltage of the lamp is the electrical parameter index of the lamp, which directly determines the use environment of the lamp, that is, the actual working voltage must be consistent with the rated working voltage. Otherwise, either the light source will be burned out due to the high voltage, or the lighting effect will not be achieved due to the low voltage.
