CRI is the most useful measure of a light source’s color characteristics. Generally speaking, CRI is a measure of a light source’s ability to show true and natural object colors in comparison to a familiar reference source, such as incandescent light or daylight.The maximum value of CRI is 100. Lower CRI values indicate that some colors may appear unnatural when illuminated by the light source. The regular incandescent light bulbs or fixtures have a CRI above 95. Different types of day white fluorescent light fixtures have CRI ranged from 62 to 80. The LED light fixtures have CRI ranged from 80 to 97.
Most of the manufacturers prefer to use basic type of LED, which is about 80 to 85 CRI. As most of the current LED fixtures installed as replacement for old fluorescent lighting, the only difference is in efficiency. LED lighting consumes much less energy than fluorescent, however the light quality stays the same.
