Lighting emitting diodes (“LEDs”) are very small lamps assembled into a electrical circuit (strip of lamps). Because they are small, LEDs can be very versatile and fit into small spaces – when there are height constraints, LEDs can be the ideal solution since they are less bulky than other technologies. LEDs, like Induction, have long rated life, which translates into maintenance savings and environmental sustainability.
Advantages of LED Lighting
More than 65% savings over and above existing lighting systems.
Currently LEDs have a rated lifetime of up to 100,000 hours. This is dependent on a number of factors.
LEDs radiate little heat due to their conduction and heat sinking design, which therefore allows a lower failure rate.
LED lights typically emit a natural color of light, however different color temperatures are available to suit different environments.
LEDs light up very quickly. A typical red indicator LED will achieve full brightness in under a microsecond.
In contrast to conventional light sources, LEDs radiate very little heat which is the principal reason behind their long lifecycle.
LEDs are solid state components and are difficult to damage, unlike conventional light sources.
