Over the years, LED technology has advanced so much that it is now popularly acknowledged as a “Green Lighting – Cost Saving” solution for electric lightings. Besides being highly recognized for its safety features, it is also well known as an environmental-friendly lighting source from the time of manufacture and throughout its entire lifespan. This is important especially to corporations who are committed to a carbon reduction target.
The other benefits and advantages of LED over the older conventional lightings are as follows:
|Efficiency||LED lightings emit more light per watt than incandescent bulbs or mercury, metal halide and halogen lamps.|
|Energy Savings||Electricity usage is typically 50 – 80% less using LEDs.|
|Very Low Maintenance Costs||In fact, no technical maintenance is required at all.|
|Color||LEDs emit light of an intended color without having to use any color filters unlike traditional lighting methods.|
|Size||LEDs can be very small (>2mm) and easily populated onto printed circuit boards.|
|On/Off Time||LEDs light up quickly (<1mS), with no flickering and reach 100% brightness instantly.|
|Cycling||Unlike fluorescent lamps which fail faster when cycled often and require a longer time to re-start, LEDs continue to work well even when subjected to repeated on-off cycling.|
|Dimming||LEDs can be easily dimmed by pulse-width modulation or lowering the forward current.|
|Temperature||LEDs in whatever form or shape, radiate very little heat.|
|Lifespan||LEDs can lasts between 35,000 – 65,000 hours of use. In comparison, fluorescent tubes can last 10,000 – 15000 hours and incandescent bulbs, only 1,000 – 2,000 hours.|
|Durability||Being made with solid state components, LEDs are shock resistant and not easily damaged, unlike the fragile fluorescents and incandescent bulbs.|
|Focus||LED’s package is designed to focus its light whereas the others require external reflectors to collect light.|
|Harzardous Contents||There is no mercury or lead in LEDs and it does not give out ultraviolet radiation.|
