Advantages of LED – Technology

Environmentally conscious and economical: LED lighting

LED lamps save up to 90 per cent electricity

Previously this technology was at best suitable for signal- and warn lighting. Small, blinking signal lamps did not allow the conclusion that this technology would be suitable to realize interior lighting or even street lighting within a few years. The advantages of this lighting solution are significant - and this realization has, without a doubt, contributed to the further development of such luminaries at such a rapid pace. When compared to a light bulb it is possible to save up to 90 per cent of electricity using LED. LEDs have the further advantage that they are shock proof and have a good switching behavior. LEDs develop much less heat than other luminaries.

LED lighting: Vast range of products for both interior- and exterior lighting

Designers of lamps have recognized the potential of the LED - once thought as a mere warning- or signal-lamp - and have been creating lamps, equipped with many small light diodes. One of the particular advantages of this lighting solution is the compact format: It can take place in just about any design - no matter how small and winding. Naturally the lighting diodes will remain decorative: As lighting accent within a figurative representation. LEDs are not limited to producing only white light but can produce the entire color spectrum, LEDs, which can depict such color gradient, are also popular in decorative lighting. Besides the usual illumination of living rooms, such as ceiling, hanging, wall and table-lamps, there is a strong demand for a good and economic LED lighting for outdoor applications. LED lamps, illuminate posts on access roads or illuminate entrances or LED spots to spotlight favorite bushes in the garden. It is further a demand of the market for a high switching behavior of brand lamps when used with motion detectors, so that the frequent switching on and off does not reduce the life expectancy significantly. LED lamps are an energy efficient lighting solution for many years.

Advantages:

  • High robustness: LEDs are considered very resistant and suitable for operation in difficult surroundings
  • Light quality: An LED emits the full intensity of brightness immediately - without flickering. With regard to color rendering and light efficiency lighting diodes are also leading.
  • Environmental sustainability: LEDs do not contain harmful substances, like mercury which is contained in energy saving lamps.
  • Energy efficiency: High quality LEDs consume approx. 80 to 90 per cent less electricity than conventional lightbulbs and thus consume significantly less than energy saving lamps or halogen lamps.
  • Long life time: High quality LEDs can, according to manufacturer's specifications, reach a lifetime of 100.000 hours. Besides the quality of the lamp a proper operation of the lamp is crucial.
  • Further, the light spectrum of LEDs contains no IR- / UV-radiation
  • Fast amortization compared to conventional illumination.

 

High Color Saturation

  • LED technology, by it's nature, offers colored light and opens new possibilities of light design
  • LED technology makes it possible to define light colors from 2.500 K up to 6.000 K with a color deviation of 0.01% straight from the semiconductor and thus offers a diversity of white light
  • A color temperature of 2.700 K up to 3.000 K is considered to be warm white light, above 3.300 K is considered to be neutral white and above 5.300 K the light is considered to be daylight white

Shock- and vibration proof

Wide range of appliation possibilites due to the fact that LEDs are vibration resistant.

 

Good color rendering

  • The high color rendering index of up to Ra95 makes the light much richer in contrast (closer to daylight)

Unsusceptible to cold temperatures

  •  Unlimited utilization outdoors even in lowest temperatures (-40° C)

Cost Effectiveness

High Efficiency

  • Enormous savings possibility by minimizing operating costs
  • Savings possibility due to high light emitting efficiency (110-160 lm/W) compared to conventional luminaries
  • Efficiency can be increased even further by application of an intelligent light management system

 Lifetime

Long life span of the new high end products

  • LED based luminaries and modules reach a lifespan of 50.000 hours

 Dynamic Controllability

  • Flexibility of illumination of rooms and workplaces through dynamic regulation of light color and brightness
  • Adaptation to the time of day and circadian rhythm to increase efficiency and concentration
  • Increase of the well-being of humans due to the adaptation of individual needs

 Low Maintenance Requirement

  • Low maintenance costs due to longer maintenance intervals

Sustainability

Environmentally Friendly

  • LED is one of the key technologies for a "green" future
  • Low power consumption results in low pollutant emission and sustainable solutions
  • Very low consumption of rare earth resources such as copper etc.

Ecologically Compatible

  • LEDs do not contain poisonous heavy metals or other harmful substances
  • LEDs are free from mercury

Recyclable

  • LEDs can be disposed of easily and environmentally friendly, as they are free of poisonous substances
  • At the end of their life cycle LEDs offer many possibilities for recycling (cradle to cradle)
