LED Technology

About LEDs
LEDs are light emitting diodes that break up with the traditional dependence on filament and glass tubes. Because of their solid state they are able to convert electricity directly into light; LEDs are mainly suitable for those applications requiring a persistent and reliable production of light, without decreasing in efficiency.

LED advantages

Why using LEDs
There are many reasons to use LED Lighting:
  • Energy efficient. LEDs are much more energy efficient than incandescent lights, reducing both your energy bills and your carbon footprint
  • Long Life. LEDs last up to 20 times longer than ordinary light bulbs (LEDs have an estimated life of 30,000-50,000 hours, compared to 1,000-2,000 hours for incandescent bulbs). This reduces maintenance costs, especially where bulbs or fittings are difficult to reach. Also LEDs don't suddenly burn out like tungsten sources, but slowly fade over time, allowing planned maintenance
  • Money saving. Although LED light bulbs are more expensive to buy than incandescent bulbs, because they are much cheaper to run and last much longer than incandescent lights, they save money in the long run
  • Light instantly and have no warming-up time, unlike compact fluorescent bulbs, which can take several minutes to reach full brightness
  • Low running temperature. LEDs work at a low temperature of up to -40°
  • No UV or IR emissions
  • Do not contain mercury, while CFLs do and so should be disposed of as hazardous waste
  • Directional light output. Light from LEDs is much more directional than from incandescent or fluorescent bulbs, so you can direct light to where you want it
