Interesting Facts About LED

 

  1. Electrical Power Saving. LED lighting systems save electrical power; 80% compared with incandescent bulbs, 50% compared with compact fluorescent lamps, 60% compared with fluorescent lamps, 75% compared with halogen lamps, 80% compared with mercury gas lamps, and 65% compared with high pressure sodium lamps.
  2. Durable Lifetime. LEDicated engineered LED luminaires have TM-21 calculated lifetimes of up to 250,000 hours. All of our products indicate rated life at various ambient temperatures. LED far exceeds the lifetimes of other lamps; incandescent lamps have 1,000 hours; halogen lamps have 2,000 hours; fluorescent lamps range from 10,000 to 24,000 hours; compact fluorescent lamps have 6,000 hours; metal halide lamps range from 10,000 to 24,000 hours; and high pressure sodium lamps range from 18,000 to 24,000 hours.
  3. Green Material Usage. Our LED luminaires meet ETL and UL standards and contain no hazardous solids, liquids or gas. They do not contain mercury, cadmium, lead, chromium or xenon gas.
  4. No UV or IR Light. LED does not radiate UV or IR. It does not destroy the objects lighted, cause freckles, or radiate heat, and it demands less air conditioning.
  5. Selectable and Consistent Color Temperature. Warm white to cool white LED is available from 2,600K to 6,000K. Due to multiple LEDs per fixture, color consistency is maintained between fixtures and across applications.
  6. Controlled Optical Light Pattern and Optimal Lumen Distribution. LEDs offer optimal control of specifically directed light output. This characteristic allows for homogenous uniform lighting, with no wasted light on hot spots under fixtures or less than optimal performing reflector systems.
  7. Low Maintenance Expense and Improved Lumen Maintenance. Long lifetime eliminates lamp replacement costs. Consistent light levels and significantly improved lamp lumen maintenance reduces initial lumen requirements, lowering power input and initial system cost.
  8. Better CRI (Color Rendering Index). LED lighting has a more complete spectrum resulting in better CRI than metal halide, high pressure sodium and low pressure sodium HID lamps.
  9. No Light Decay in Extreme Low Temperature. Fluorescent lamps and compact fluorescent lamps have highly diminished light output at low temperatures.
