Spotlights are lamps that specify that the illuminance on the illuminated surface is higher than the surrounding environment. Generally, it can aim in any direction and has a structure that is not affected by climatic conditions. The floodlight is a point light source that can evenly illuminate in all directions. Its illumination range can be adjusted arbitrarily, and it appears as a regular octahedron icon in the scene. These two kinds of lamps are very commonly used, but many people are not clear about the difference between spotlights and floodlights. Below, Baifu Street Lights will tell you how to distinguish between spotlights and floodlights.

1. Different scenes used

Because floodlights can produce scattered light sources in a large area, if multiple floodlights are used in combination, they can provide high-brightness diffused light sources for the studio. Spotlights are usually used for lighting in buildings, squares, flower beds and parks, which can make the outlines of these buildings clearer at night and increase the beauty of the town at night.

2. Different forms of irradiation

The illumination form of the floodlight is diffuse, so when it is turned on, light will be projected in all directions, and the area within the illumination range of the floodlight will be illuminated, so it can be used to illuminate the entire scene. However, the spotlight has a light-gathering effect, so it can be oriented to illuminate. When the quality-guaranteed spotlight is turned on, its light will be directed to the designated direction.

3.the angle of the irradiation section is different

The illumination angle of the floodlight cannot be adjusted, so no matter what kind of floodlight you buy to use, although the illumination range can be adjusted arbitrarily after lighting, it is spread around the lamp itself, while the spotlight’s The projection angle can be selected according to actual requirements, and usually any angle can be selected within one hundred and eighty degrees.
