Why use LEDs?
High efficiency: The high efficiency here refers to the ratio of power to light output. Among the different energy forms, light absorbs the most energy in many facilities. This is also the main difference between LED and traditional light bulbs. High-performance LEDs therefore save money compared to traditional light bulbs. LEDs have such high performance because almost all of the energy is converted into light energy during the illuminating process, and essentially no energy is converted into heat and wasted. In contrast, in the light-emitting mechanism of conventional light bulbs, light energy is only a by-product of the heat generation process, and the performance of the LED is of course lower.
Long life: Today's society pays more attention to the earth's ecology. Therefore, the life of electronic components cannot be ignored. Longevity will also have a direct impact on the maintenance cost of products. According to professional technology, LEDs can be used for 50, 000 to 100, 000 hours, while traditional bulbs such as incandescent lamps and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) are only 750 to 10, 000 hours. The LEDs are high quality and reliable. The cost of LED lighting is greatly reduced by quality and reliability.
Linsheng Electrical Co , Ltd. said: High energy efficiency and long-term durability make LED an inevitable choice for lighting. LED technology has now evolved to have several different types of LEDs. These types of LEDs find applications in a variety of fields, and different types are particularly well suited for giving different areas.
Having said that, how do you choose the LED that best suits you? Here are a few things you must consider.
a. Performance (lm/W): Even in a workspace or residential area, minimizing required energy and maximizing output are always the first goals, and performance is often used to express efficiency. Understand the power system of your application and achieve a balance of performance and efficiency. When choosing an LED driver, many people will be confused, thinking that the brightness of a light bulb is expressed in watts (W). In fact, Watt (W) is the actual measured energy usage, while lumens (lm) represents the brightness.
b. Embedding method: How to install LED in your application design? What is embedded? You may get the hardware construction from the data sheet attached to the product.
c. Color temperature (K): When it comes to the color of the LED, a lower color temperature indicates a warm white color, while a medium temperature produces a neutral white color, while a higher temperature produces a cool white color.
d. Beam angle: This is the direction of the light that indicates the lens and the direction of control. A thinner beam angle means a denser spot and a smaller illumination area. The most common high beam angle of light is the spotlight, which is typically used to focus on specific objects/objects. The wider beam angle bulbs are used in some general lighting applications, such as lighting from the ceiling to the work area. Below are the fields of view for different beam angles.
In the museum, LED spotlights are often used in different exhibitions. For exhibits, if the beam angle is too wide, it looks less attractive. In the work area, a wider beam of light is used to illuminate the room. If a smaller beam angle is adopted, it can cause eye damage.
Considering this, Linsheng Electromechanical Co., Ltd. has some suggestions on how to optimize the lighting settings in each area.
1. Office / school / home LED lighting
LED lights for office work are more visually demanding, ensuring the comfort of the lighting system to maximize employee productivity. Good lighting means providing enough illumination so that people can clearly see the prints, documents, but not too high optical density (which can cause visual tn/sickness). Install a cool white light in the office to make Employees are alert and energetic. In addition, LEDs have a lower UV content and are less harmful to the skin and eyes.
Recommended LED type: LED fluorescent tube
2. Decorative LED lighting
In addition to the spotlight, adding color also helps make the story more interesting. The lights played an important role in guiding visitors through their guided tours to guide visitors. It can be used to change the mood of the exhibition space and attract others to pay attention to the artwork. LEDs can significantly reduce operating costs due to the flexibility in adjusting beam angles and lumens. In addition, less heat is emitted from the LEDs to prevent damage to these products. There are many designers who use LED lighting to showcase their products and artwork.
Recommended LED type: LED flexible strip
