Everything You Need To Know About COB Lights

Chip-on-board is referred to as COB in short.It is a highly effective integrated surface light source technique that directly mounts LED chips on a highly reflective mirror metal substrate. It is mostly used to address issues with low-power chips used to produce high-power LEDs.
What distinguishes COB lighting from conventional LED lighting?
LED bulbs, light strings, and LED light strips all use the typical LED technology, also known as SMD LED lights. SMD LED lights are also used in your phone's notification light.SMD bulbs have an output power between 50 and 100 lumens per watt, which is incredibly bright.
With only one circuit and two contacts, COB LEDs require a number of channels to produce a color-changing effect. As a result, COB LED lights can only produce one hue of lighting. Yet, they are brighter, use less power, and provide a higher quality beam.
What benefits does COB light offer?
First of all, they are dependable, inexpensive, and useful. They are also easy to carry around because they are smaller than older studio lights.COB lights can considerably expand the illumination area while minimising glare, allowing them to provide a very strong light in a room while using less energy.
High efficiency: The watt ratio of the COB LED chip is higher than that of conventional lighting. While conventional DIP LEDs can only provide 20 to 50 lumens per watt, COB can provide 100 lumens per watt.
Great uniformity: The illumination is constant. It creates a clear and distinct shadow outline while lighting a subject. This makes it perfect for adding distinctive lighting effects when filming, which helps it become more and more well-liked among photographers and filmmakers.
Strong light intensity: Because an array of light emitting diodes are mounted on a single substrate, the density of these LEDs is larger than that of other LED chips, resulting in significant light intensity.
Less heat: due to the simplicity of design, it has fewer parts than conventional LEDs. As a result, the components produce relatively little heat.
Where can COB lights be used?
COB LEDs can be found in a variety of settings ranging from the home to the workplace, including living rooms and hallways that require wide-angle beams, big stadiums and playgroundsthat require high lumens at night. They can also be used as Garden light.
Luminosity (the output in lumens), versatility (lighting modes), dependability (power supply requirements), and construction quality should all be taken into account when selecting the best COB light
