Description

FIELD OF THE INVENTION [0001] The present invention relates to an LED outdoor lamp, and more particularly to an outdoor lamp capable of changing colors. The outdoor lamp comprises an LED light module. The LED light module includes at least one PCBA (printed circuit board assembly) arrayed with a plurality of LED groups. Each of the LED groups is composed of at least one white/warm white LED and at least one RGB LED adjacent to each other. The luminous flux of the entire LED light module is improved through the white/warm white LED to assist the RGB LED.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION [0002] Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are widely used in various types of lighting fixtures due to the characters of energy saving, light weight, and compactness. In recent years, high-power LED, white/warm white LED and RGB LED technology have been developed, gradually replacing traditional light-emitting devices. LEDs have been applied to industry, home lighting, traffic roads, etc.
[0003] In recent years, most of outdoor lamps used in gardens, homes, outdoor restaurants or outdoor recreation sites use RGB LEDs as a light-emitting module, namely, color-changing outdoor lamps. During operation, different colors can be changed through RGB LEDs to generate different visual effects.
[0004] The above-mentioned color-changing outdoor lamp has the effect of changing colors. The RGB LED uses the principle of mixing red, green and blue to change colors. When the RGB LED is driven with a high luminous flux to emit colored light, the color is not obvious. Only when the luminous flux is low, the RGB LED can generate a more obvious color-changing effect.
[0005] In other words, the luminous flux must be low for the outdoor lamp with RGB LEDs to generate a more obvious color-changing effect. This is the shortcoming of the color-changing outdoor lamp. Accordingly, the inventor of the present invention has devoted himself based on his many years of practical experiences to solve these problems.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION [0006] An embodiment of the present invention seeks to provide an outdoor lamp capable of changing colors. Advantageously, the outdoor lamp not only solves the problem that the luminous flux of the outdoor lamp is not enough but also allows the outdoor lamp to have a color gradient effect when changing colors.
[0007] Additionally or alternatively, an embodiment of the present invention seeks to at least provide the public with a useful choice.
[0008] The present invention provides an outdoor lamp capable of changing colors comprising a support member, a lamp holder disposed on the support member, and an LED light module disposed in the lamp holder. The LED light module includes at least one PCBA (printed circuit board assembly) arrayed with a plurality of LED groups. The PCBA is electrically connected to an LED driver. Each of the LED groups is composed of at least one white/warm white LED and at least one RGB LED adjacent to each other. The LED driver drives and controls each of the white/warm white LED and the RGB LED to emit light simultaneously or individually. When the LED driver drives and controls the RGB LED to emit light in a fixed color manner or in a color-changing manner, the luminous flux of the LED light module is increased through the white light/warm white light emitted by the white/warm white LED, and the LED light module generates a color gradient effect.
[0009] Compared with the prior art, in the outdoor lamp according to an embodiment of the present invention, each of the LED groups of the LED light module is composed of at least one white/warm white LED and at least one RGB LED adjacent to each other. When the RGB LED emits light in a fixed color manner or in a color-changing manner, the luminous flux of the LED light module is increased through the white light/warm white light emitted by the white/warm white LED, thereby overcoming the problem of dusk because the luminous flux of the conventional outdoor lamp is not enough. With the configuration of the number of white/warm white LEDs and RGB LEDs, the colored light is presented in a gradient effect.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS [0015] Embodiments of the present invention will now be described, by way of example only, with reference to the accompanying drawings.
[0016] As shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, an outdoor lamp capable of changing colors in accordance with the present invention comprises a support member 10, a lamp holder 20 disposed on the support member 10, and an FED light module 30 disposed in the lamp holder 20. The FED light module 30 includes at least one PCBA (printed circuit board assembly) 50 arrayed with a plurality of FED groups 40. The PCBA 50 is electrically connected to an FED driver 60 and driven by the FED driver 60, enabling the plurality of FED groups 40 on the PCBA 50 to emit light.
[0017] As shown in the figures, the support member 10 has a bottom portion in the form of a rod to be fixed to the ground. The lamp holder 20 includes a light-pervious lampshade 21 disposed on the top of the support member 10 and a cover 22 that covers the top of the light-pervious lampshade 21. In practice, the lamp holder 20 may be mounted to a bracket (not shown) on a wall or hung on a building or other objects, without using the support member 10.
[0018] In order to save energy and facilitate installation, the top of the cover 22 is provided with a solar panel 23, so that the FED light module 30 does not need to be
2018100426 03 Apr 2018 connected with a power cable. However, the LED light module 30 may be connected with a power cable (not shown) to meet the needs of the installation site. In addition, the
LED driver 60 is disposed between the top of the light-pervious lampshade 21 and the cover 22 in a hidden manner to avoid affecting the appearance.
[0019] The PCBA 50 of the LED light module 30 is disposed in the light-pervious lampshade 21 and located at the center of the light-pervious lampshade 21 or above the light-pervious lampshade 21. When the PCBA 50 is implemented, the PCBA 50 is made into a suitable shape corresponding to the shape and internal space of a different lamp holder 20, such as a ring, a strip, a disk, a triangle, or a non-geometry. As shown in FIG. 1 and FIG. 2, the PCBA 50 is in the form of a strip, as an example.
[0020] As shown in FIG. 3 to FIG. 5, the LED light module 30 may include two PCB As, defined as a first PCBA 50a located at the center of the light-pervious lampshade 21 and a second PCBA 50b disposed above the first PCBA 50a. Both the first PCBA 50a and the second PCBA 50b may be simultaneously installed, or one of them may be selected in conjunction with the design of the outdoor lamp. In addition, as shown in FIG. 3 to FIG. 5, the first PCBA 50a is in the form of a strip and the second PCBA 50b is in the form of a ring, as an example. But, the actual implementation of the first PCBA 50a and the second PCBA 50b can be respectively formed into suitable shapes according to the shapes and the internal spaces of different lamp holders.
[0021] Wherein, the first PCBA 50a is installed at the center of the light-pervious lampshade 21 of the lamp holder 20 in an upright manner. Both sides of the first PCBA 50a are provided with a plurality of LED groups 40a. When the LED groups 40a on both sides of the first PCBA 50a emit light, the light is scattered 360 degrees around the entire light-pervious lampshade 21 through a light guide structure in the light-pervious lampshade 21. Alternatively, a light guide pillar 51 is provided between the outside of the first PCBA 50a and the light-pervious lampshade 21. The light is scattered 360-degree through the light guide pillar 51. The light guide structure or the light guide pillar 51 in the light-pervious lampshade 21 is a general technique and won’t be further described hereinafter.
2018100426 03 Apr 2018 [0022] As shown in the figures, the second PCB A 50b of the LED light module 30 is transversely disposed under the cover 22 of the lamp holder 20, that is, above the first PCB A 50a. A plurality of LED groups 40b are disposed on the underside of the second PCBA 50b to emit light toward the light-pervious lampshade 21. If the second PCB A 50b is separately provided, a plurality of LED groups 40b are provided on both sides of the second PCBA 50b, enabling both sides of the second PCBA 50b to emit light. In cooperation with the two embodiments of the PCBA, the implementation of the LED groups of the present invention is as follows:
[0023] As shown in FIG. 4, the first PCBA 50a is in the form of a strip, and the plurality of LED groups 40a are arranged in a rectangular array. Wherein, each LED group 40a is composed of at least one white/warm white LED 41a and at least one RGB LED 42a adjacent to each other. The LED driver can drive and control each of the white/warm white LED 41a and the RGB LED 42a to emit light simultaneously or individually. When the RGB LED 42a emits light in a fixed color manner or in a color-changing manner, the luminous flux of the entire LED light module 30 is increased through the white light/warm white light emitted by each white/warm white LED 41a.
[0024] It is worth mentioning that the number of at least one white/warm white LED 41a and at least one RGB LED 42a of the LED group 40a may be configured in different numbers depending on the needs of the lighting effect. For example, as shown in FIG. 4, the white/warm white LEDs 41a and the RGB LEDs 42a of the LED groups 40a are arranged from the left to the right of the figure: two white/warm white LEDs 41a in cooperation with one RGB LED 42a, one white/warm white LED 41a in cooperation with one RGB LED 42a, one white/warm white LED 41a in cooperation with two RGB LEDs 42a, etc., or many white/warm white LEDs 41a in cooperation with many RGB LEDs 42a, thereby enabling the colored light emitted by the entire LED light module 30 to have a color gradient effect.
2018100426 03 Apr 2018 [0025] As shown in FIG. 5, the LED groups 40b on the second PCBA 50b are arranged in an annular array. Each LED group 40b is composed of at least one white/warm white LED 41b and at least one RGB LED 42b adjacent to each other. As for the configuration of the white/warm white LED 41b and the RGB LED 42b, the RGB LED 42b can be configured to increase in number from the outside to the inside. The luminous flux of the entire LED light module 30 can be increased through the white light/warm white light emitted by each white/warm white LED 41b. Through the change in number, the colored light emitted by the entire LED light module 30 may have a color gradient effect.
[0026] For example, the LED groups 40b arranged in an annular array as shown in the figure, the number of white/warm white LEDs 41b is one or more from the outside to the inside, but the number of RGB LEDs 42b gradually increases from the outside to the inside. Through the control of the LED driver, it is possible to generate a color gradient effect in which the color gradually becomes richer from the outside to the inside.
[0027] Although particular embodiments of the present invention have been described in detail for purposes of illustration, various modifications and enhancements may be made without departing from the spirit and scope of the present invention. Accordingly, the present invention is not to be limited except as by the appended claims.
[0028] The term ‘comprising’ as used in this specification and claims means ‘consisting at least in part of. When interpreting statements in this specification and claims which include the term ‘comprising’, other features besides the features prefaced by this term in each statement can also be present.
