Flicker-free LED lights for Golf Simulator System
We plan to install a Uneekor EyeXO golf simulator with 2 high-speed cameras. Uneekor has recommended I install at least 8 15-watt or higher non-flickering LED track lights to provide adequate lighting to avoid blurring of the images during the golf swing.
We don't currently have any track light fixtures, but you may want to consider several of our flicker-free lighting options to ensure that your golf simulator system is able to accurately capture high-speed images.
Our A19 products are rated flicker-free and may be the easiest product to install and set up, as it is a standard screw-in light bulb that can be used in a standard lamp fixture. Please see below for the product link:
How many of these installed in track lighting fixtures would be necessary to provide adequate lighting to capture the high speed images? The picture in the Optics attachment on page 10 shows 3 track lighting fixtures with 11 lights distributed among them.
It's a bit difficult to provide a definitive answer for brightness requirements, as this would depend on the camera system and the various light sensors used in the golf simulator.
One way to do a comparison against their recommendation is to compare lamp power. Our LED lamps are 10 watt lamps, so to achieve the same power level as the 8x 15 watt lamp recommendation, you will need at least 12 lamps to reach the same amount of power (8 lamps x 15 watts per lamp = 120 watts).
However, since our lamps are omni-directional, you may not see as much perceived brightness directed towards the golfer, compared to the track light lamps which tend to be more directional. As such, it may be beneficial to increase the power budget further to ensure sufficient brightness.
We would perhaps recommend testing and taking advantage of our free returns policy. If for whatever reason you find that the LED bulbs are not going to work for your project, we would be more than happy to pay for return shipping and offer a full refund.
Do I want the A19 in 6000K?
Both the 6500K and 5000K should work fine for your needs, as both are calibrated to natural daylight and your camera system should have these calibrations built in. The color temperatures correspond, roughly, to north-facing daylight for 6500K, and direct noon sun for 5000K.
Both options offer 95 CRI and flicker-free light output and therefore should serve well for the application.
