365nm realUV™ LED for Photography Studio Black Lights
I'm disappointed that it seems the old F40 black light bulbs seem to be dead. No more cheap fun black light bulbs. I was going to build an array of four to six f40s for a black light body painting shoot. I know LED is different but as you guys are the 365 nm experts. Would you recommend the flood light style or strip style LEDs for this application? Do you think one LED flood will compare? Wattage seems kind a low compared to 240 watts of florescent.
Based on my review of the details provided, it appears that either the strip lights or flood light products could be a great match for your installation, depending on the preferred configuration. That said, the floodlights would likely be easier to install and adjust than the strip lights.
As such, our primary recommendation would be to compare the UV output of the previously used F40 light sources against that of our 365nm realUV™ LED Strip Lights and 365nm realUV™ LED Flood Light products.
Though the wattage may be significantly less, there is a chance that the measured ultraviolet output of our products is greater than the previously used items F40 lights. To help with the product comparison, we have attached links to the irradiance patterns of both products below for your reference.
