UV-A LED Strip Light to Glow a Painting Studio
I have approx. 10×10 room with a 2×4 panel drop ceiling - black acoustic) I would like to have independent white and fixtures or another way to control white and UV independently. I plan on filming in there so need lots of white light preferably on a dimmer. The blacklight/UV would be useful to have both 365nm and possibly another wavelength (this is one major question) I'm using strontium aluminate pigments but maybe it might help to have another wavelength in there as well. The wall switch can be changed, in fact, everything is open with bonus points if I can control them via remote control.
The closest alternative option would be to incorporate our LED strip lights, which are offered both in 365 nm UV-A as well as in various color temperatures in white. This would require some rewiring and modification of the fixtures as well as familiarity with low-voltage wiring systems.
Based on what you are looking for, the Lutron Caseta remote control system to control our LED strip lights may be a great option for you. (See article here: https://www.waveformlighting.com/home-residential/dimming-led-strip-lights-and-led-bulbs-using-smart-lighting-systems)
I just need advice what to put on the switch or if there's a primary fixture for the dimmable bright white lights with the ability to daisy chain for power only to the UV. If 10,000 lumen is overkill that's beyond overkill (I plan to keep it dimmed, but would like option of brightness for the microscope) I can be flexible.
We do not have any fixtures that would meet your needs, so everything would need to be a custom build / installation on your end.
Our LED strip lights can be a viable option and can be connected to a wall dimmer as shown in the layout chart shown in the link below:
I've input your room dimensions in our lumen estimation calculator (https://www.waveformlighting.com/lumen-calculator) and the 10,000 lumens would provide you with roughly 100 footcandles across the space. This is certainly on the high side but may be preferred or even needed, depending on how much light you are looking for your film and photography needs.
Each 1 ft section of the white LED strip lights emits approximately 450 lumens, so you would be looking for approximately 22 ft of LED strip lights to achieve 10,000 lumens.
