Difference between NorthLux and D50 T8 LED Tube Lights
I am wondering if you could help me with a few questions about specific products of yours:
NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tube for Art & Studio & D50 5000K T8 LED Tube Lights for Color Matching (ISO3664:2000) What is the main difference between these two lights? I'd get them in 6500k. Are they both near daylight quality? They are for my workshop. I'd like it as close to daylight as possible.
Regarding the 2 above lights, what is the footprint size of the light the fixtures emit? How many square feet of light would each tube emit?
I see that you offer the same quality lights but in a T5 fixture. What is the square footage of light emitted for the T5 fixtures with CRI95?
We can confirm that the NorthLux™ 95 CRI T8 LED Tube for Art & Studio product and the D50 5000K T8 LED Tube Lights for Color Matching (ISO3664:2000) are identical products which are provided unique landing pages for marketing purposes. This can be noted by the shared part number of both products. We would like to sincerely apologize for any confusion that this might have caused.
As the footprint size of the light output generally scales depending on the area that the light is filling, it would be difficult to know what the footcandle measurement would be without knowing the dimensions of the space. As such, our lumen estimation calculator tool might prove to be helpful for your planning purposes. By inputting the dimensions and selecting the planned purpose of the space, our web tool will assist in suggesting the right quantity of lighting products to meet your ideal output.
In the interim, we can confirm that each of the products has an 1800-lumen output. Further, the 6500K color temperature option is designed to emit light that is extremely similar to north-facing daylight. Alternatively, our 2ft NorthLux™ 95 CRI T5 LED Linear Light Fixtures have a lumen output of 900, whereas the 4 ft fixtures will have an output of 1800 lumens.
