ADVANTAGES OF LED
LONG LIFE TIME
LEDs have a longer rated life than traditional light sources. Depending on the application, the rated lifetimes of LED lamps and luminaires can be 10 – 50 times that of traditional light sources. This extended lifetime brings the benefits of reduced maintenance costs as well.
The efficiency of LED package has increased dramatically in recent years, which means a lower power consumption to achieve the same lux level conventional lamps used to. That’s not only reduce both the electricity bills of property owers and CO2 emission , but also promote led lighting adoption by EMC(energy management contract) projects.
In contrast to metal halide, incandescent and fluorescent sources, LEDs radiate very little heat that can cause damage to sensitive objects or discoloration of fabrics and finishes. Reduced heat generation also brings potential savings on air-conditioning costs.
Due to their small form factor, LEDs present the best of both worlds for lighting design. They can be used to mimic the directionality of PAR, flood light, high bay or be combined to duplicate the omnidirectional nature of fluorescent and incandescent sources.
Unlike Fluorescent lamps that may have up to xx% of mercury, LED lamps are completely mercury free and dramatically reduce their environmental impact upon disposal.
Unlike fluorescent lamps that take time to warm up and come to full brightness or metal halide lamps that need time to cool down before they can be restarted, LEDs are near full brightness almost instantly and can be rapidly cycled without any harmful effects to the rated lifetime or light output.
