The human eye is able to distinguish colours lying between red and blue. At one end of the color spectrum are the longest wavelengths that come out as red, and at the other end are the shortest wavelengths that show as blue color. Green color lies in the middle of the spectrum. These colors can be combined to form millions of different hues, saturations, and tones.
Conventional lighting works by heating up a filament which produces light that is then passed through a color filter to give the desired color. LED (Light Emitting Diodes) work in a different way. LED lighting, on the other hand, works by converting electrical energy to light by movement of electrons in the material in the diode. LED lighting is classified as solid-state lighting as the light is emitted directly from the material.
White LED Light
RGB lighting does not produce white light directly. Instead, a blue LED chip with a phosphor coating is used which converts blue light into white using a process called fluorescence.

Coloured LED Light
The different material used in LED semi-conductors release different amounts of light energy. This then determines the color that comes out. Red light, for example, is given off by low energy materials while blue color is given off by high energy materials. A combination of RGB light is used to produce over 16 million hues of colors.
LED lights give off more vibrant and saturated colors because each chip can only produce within a narrow spectrum which makes the light more concentrated.
Types of RGB Lights
- RGB 3 in 1 LED: In this light, the Red, Green and Blue chips are mounted on a common light engine. The light passes through a lens which gives it more uniformity.
- RGB 4 in 1 LED: This is just like the RGB 3 in 1 LED, but has a white light which adds more warmth and a wider variety of color tones.
- R/G/B/W LED: There is an additional white light to the other RGB colors.
- RGBA: This light has an amber chip
Tunable LEDs RGB lighting uses light engines that combine individual chips to give off a wider range of colors from warm white to cool white.
Advantages Of LED RGB Lighting
- Longer Life: LEDs do not have moving parts that will get fatigued and burn out. There are no gases or filaments.
- Lower Energy Bills: An LED light will consume 30% of what a conventional light of the same rating consumes.
- Wider Colour Range: One strip of LED can produce a very wide variety of colors making them useful for decorative and fancy lighting.
