Seven Reasons Why LED Lighting Replaces Traditional Lighting
Seven reasons to tell you why choose LED floodlights, LED stadium lights, LED high bay lamps as the preferred choice for industrial and outdoor lighting!
LED lighting has swept the traditional lighting market, and it is also true for various industrial fields. Longer service life, lower energy consumption and lower maintenance costs… According to the US Department of Energy estimates, by 2030, LED lighting can save 190 TWh (1.9 x 1011 kWh) per year, which is equivalent to 150 One hundred million U.S. dollars. . The most important thing is that the purchase price of lamps has been declining, and more and more equipment managers are considering upgrading the use of LEDs.
1. Energy Efficiency
Compared with traditional incandescent, fluorescent and halogen lamps, using LED lighting will reduce power consumption by 40-70%, which saves a lot of energy costs. If long-term lighting applications, the cost savings are even more impressive.
In addition, the LED can emit light in a semi-circle or in a specific direction, while the conventional light bulb emits light in a full circle or in all directions. The ability of LEDs to directional light reduces the waste of light and energy, further saving cost.
2. Long Life
Unlike incandescent lighting, LEDs do not “burn out,” and LEDs will get darker and darker over time. A good LED has a nominal life of 100,000 hours on the L70, or at least 70% of its initial light output, which of course depends on the lamp and the light fixture. Since the LED system can reduce the cost of replacement bulbs, overall maintenance costs are reduced.
The durability of LED systems helps to further reduce maintenance costs. Without a filament or glass case, LED luminaires can prevent breakage and can to a great extent withstand vibrations and other collisions, which means that they are very suitable for industrial environments.
Traditional lighting usually uses glass or quartz on the outside, and LEDs are mounted on the circuit board and connected to the leads (although solder wires are not afraid of direct impact, but are not as smart as smartphones).
4. Instant Opening Function
Many fluorescent and high-pressure gas discharge lamps do not provide full brightness immediately, and it usually takes about three minutes to reach maximum output. In contrast, LED systems can instantly emit 100% brightness without rebooting. For industrial applications, it is critical during blackouts or early morning hours.
5. Fast Cycle
The more light sources traditionally switch, the shorter the service life. If you want to consider including smart controls in your building, you must choose LED lighting.
6. Basic Knowledge of Information
The core of the LED system is a semiconductor device that not only emits light but also can do more. The LED itself is compatible with advanced new systems and can bring new energy efficiency. With LEDs, facility managers can continuously monitor performance to ensure cost savings and use lighting in combination with other systems including energy storage, solar and gas fire protection technologies.
7. Hardly any Infrared or Ultraviolet Radiation
In fact, less than 10% of the power used by incandescent lamps is converted to visible light, and most of the power is converted to infrared (IR) or radiant heat. Excessive heat and ultraviolet radiation (UV) can cause injury to people and materials and may cause danger in industrial environments that may contain hazardous chemicals, precision machinery, and so on. The LED system hardly emits infrared rays or ultraviolet rays. The rapid development of LED lighting technology has reduced the cost and improved the reliability of the LED.
