How many Watts For A Desk Lamp?
When it comes to brightness for desk lamps, due to traditional incandescent lamps it was easier to just scale the lights by Wattage. However, with more energy-efficient lights on the modern market, wattage does not exactly correlate to brightness. The lower the wattage of an LED light, yes, the lower the overall brightness will be, but if you are shopping and making comparisons between CFL, incandescent and LEDs, you’re going to need to look at the number of lumens the light can put out and what dimmable controls it has.
How Many lumens For Workstations?
The number of lumens is variable according to what task you’re performing and your age. Older people will require more lumens (brightness) for their task lighting at work sations.. Especially when the task is fine focused work.
General work: Reading, writing, computer work: 400-550 lumens.
Precision work: Technical drawings, art, repairing small components 800-950lumens
Obviously, these are estimates and do alter depending on how you feel comfortable under artificial light. Personally, I like to work under slightly dimmer light whereas my colleagues etc work under brighter light for the same task. So just find a light that has a wide variety of dimmable ranges. When it comes to older age to perform the same task, some people can get as close to almost needing double the number of lumens for a task. This is more related to general tasks reading, writing etc, as fine work is usually still very close under the light and will not require many more lumens.
