Why LED

Basic advantages of LED Light

  1. Energy efficient – LED’s are now capable of outputting 135 lumens/watt
  2. Long Lifetime – 30,000 hours or more if properly engineered
  3. Rugged – LED’s are also called “Solid State Lighting (SSL) as they are made of solid material with no filament or tube or bulb to break
  4. No warm-up period – LED’s light instantly – in nanoseconds
  5. Not affected by cold temperatures – LED’s “like” low temperatures and will startup even in subzero weather
  6. Directional – With LED’s you can direct the light where you want it, thus no light is wasted
  7. Excellent Color Rendering – LED’s do not wash out colors like other light sources such as fluorescents, making them perfect for displays and retail applications
  8. Environmentally friendly – LED’s contain no mercury or other hazardous substances
  9. Controllable – LED’s can be controlled for brightness and color

Why LED’s are chosen for many applications

  • LEDs are ideal for use in applications that are subject to frequent on-off cycling, unlike fluorescent lamps that burn out more quickly when cycled frequently, or HID lamps that require a long time before restarting.
  • LEDs can very easily be dimmed or strobed
  • LEDs light up very quickly. A typical red indicator LED will achieve full brightness in microseconds.
  • LEDs mostly fail by dimming over time, rather than the abrupt burn-out of incandescent bulbs
  • LEDs, being solid state components, are difficult to damage with external shock, unlike fluorescent and incandescent bulbs which are fragile.
  • LEDs can be very small and are easily populated onto printed circuit boards.
  • LEDs do not contain mercury, unlike compact fluorescent lamps
