In addition to the brightness to meet the standard, the uniformity of the illuminance is also very important. Some products have sufficient brightness but it is not uniform, so the performance requirements are clear: the difference between the maximum and minimum illuminance in the same fan-shaped area does not exceed 3lx.

  • Strobe

The strobe of a desk lamp refers to the frequency of the light source shining. If the light has a strobe, the muscles of the human eye will constantly adjust according to the strobe, which is very easy to cause eye fatigue, and it is easy to be short-sighted after a long time use.

If the human eye is exposed to low color rendering light for a long time, then the human eye’s color judgment of the object will be affected.

Generally speaking, desk lamps are mainly used indoors, and their color rendering index cannot be lower than 82 according to the requirements in GB/T9473. Therefore, if a desk lamp claims to be a high color rendering desk lamp, its color rendering should be greater than 90.
