When it comes to lighting, the time taken to illuminate the entire tube or bulb is very important. This will affect the outcome of the lighting device in many ways because it will determine how long it takes before the intended space is fully illuminated. The time lapse is the same for similar tubes and could be very evident when used separately. On the other hand, when used collectively, the effects might not be as significant.
In most cases, lighting tubes and bulbs are defined and marketed through various measurement units. All these factors must be considered before they are installed as they all play important respective roles to ensure the best lighting options. This factor can sometimes be not as significant when there are several tubes installed together as they will all illuminate at different times.
Time lapse is one of the areas that must be strongly considered as the faster the time taken to fully illuminate the tube, the quicker the lighting up of the space will be. In cases where the LED tubes are used for rooms and large spaces, the time taken to brighten up the space might not be as significant while it will be a lot more prominent when the LEDs are used for interior design purposes like signs, wall washers as well as spot and projection lights.
The Time Lapse in the LED is measured in Seconds in which they will define the eventual lighting outcome of the device. In most devices available today, time lapse is usually around 35” which is the commonly acceptable duration. It must be noted that different manufacturers have different lengths when it comes to time lapse of the device. For instance, a standard T8 LED tube will usually have the market standard of 35” time lapse while others would have different variations.
