FAQ | Condensation

Nordic Lights confirms that a certain amount of condensation is normal to occur inside the work light’s lens.

This phase transition process (of water from gas to liquid) occurs when the temperature on the inner surfaces of the lamp drops below the dew point due to changing ambient conditions.

If condensation does occur, the area of the light aperture shall be automatically cleared from it after few minutes of operation, and eventually the entire lens should be free from condensation. For LED lights this can take a bit longer than for halogen lights due to lesser heat production during operation.

Permanent visible moisture or water droplets inside the work light are not acceptable during operation.

On the left: Acceptable level of condensation – thin moisture film that disappears from the lens during operation

On the right: Inacceptable level of condensation – accumulated water droplets that remain visible even after longer period of operation
