The wattage you mentioned, ranging from 40W to 150W, typically refers to the power consumption or power rating of the top light of a UFO (Unidentified Flying Object) post or streetlight. These UFO post top lights are often used for outdoor lighting in various applications, such as street lighting, parking lots, parks, and commercial areas.
The choice of wattage for a UFO post top light depends on several factors, including the specific lighting requirements, the area’s size, and the desired level of illumination. Here’s a general guideline for selecting the appropriate wattage:
- 40W to 60W: These lower-wattage options are suitable for decorative lighting, walkways, small parking lots, or areas where lower illumination levels are acceptable. They are energy-efficient but provide less brightness.
- 80W to 100W: Mid-range wattages are commonly used for residential streets, smaller parking lots, and areas where moderate lighting is required.
- 150W: This higher-wattage option is typically used for larger parking lots, main streets, and areas where high-intensity lighting is necessary for safety and security.
