What's the Difference Between Downlight and Spotlight

Downlights and spotlights are mixed by many people. I don't know the difference between the two types of lamps, the orientation to be applied to the home, and the role of the application. In a nutshell, downlight is a kind of lamp with more condensing characteristics about the lamps usually installed on the surface, which is usually used for general lighting or auxiliary lighting.

A spotlight is a highly focused lamp whose illumination has a specific policy that can be specified. It is mainly used for extra lighting, such as focusing on a local place with great taste or innovation.

Let's distinguish downlights from spotlights in these aspects.

1. From the light source, down lamps can be equipped with incandescent bulbs and energy-saving lamps. The incandescent light is yellow. When installing an energy-saving lamp, it can be white or yellow depending on the type of bulb. The light source direction of ceiling downlight cannot be adjusted.

From the figure below, we can directly see the energy-saving tube of the downlight, and the waterproof downlight is added with a waterproof glass cover outside.

Quartz bulbs or beads are usually used for household spotlights. Of course, large spotlights don't need quartz bulbs. The quartz bulb only needs yellow light.

And the light source direction of the common spotlight can be adjusted freely.

2. From the perspective of application orientation, downlights are usually installed in the ceiling. Usually, the ceiling needs to be more than 150mm to be installed. Of course, downlights also have external type. In areas without ceiling lights or chandeliers, downlights are an excellent choice, and the light should be soft.

Spotlights can usually be divided into track type, point hanging type and embedded type. Spotlights usually have transformers, but some do not. Embedded spotlights can be installed in the ceiling. Spotlights are mainly used in places where demand is biased or reflected, such as TV walls, hanging paintings, jewelry, etc. they can play light rhyme to enhance their role.

3. Judging from the quotation, the spotlight is more expensive at the same level.

Generally speaking, domestic downlight and spotlight brands with good quality include OPP, Sanli, Rex and Sanxiong aurora. In the meantime, Rex and Sanli have the best cost performance.

Downlights are usually large (5 inches), medium (4 inches) and small (2.5 inches). Today's small shopping malls offer between 20-15 yuan, medium 28-32 yuan and large 36-48 yuan. Of course, the above quotation does not include light source. Downlight has two types: horizontal insertion and vertical insertion. The quotation of horizontal insertion is a few more expensive than vertical insertion.

It should be noted that the spotlight can not be used to illuminate wool fabrics at close intervals, nor can there be flammable suppressors at close intervals, otherwise it will simply cause a fire. Although the spotlight consumes a lot of power, it plays a different role in proper orientation. The decoration of spotlights and colorful lamp cups has a unique flavor.
