How remarkable are LEDs and how revolutionary? You could ask the Nobel Prize Committee that granted Isamu Akasaki, Hiroshi Amano, and Shuji Nakamura the 2014 Noble Prize in Physics. In the committee’s own words, LEDs “hold excellent promise to enhance the quality of life for more than 1.5 billion individuals around the globe who lack access to energy grids.” You’d better think that if LEDs can light up the earth, commercial LED lighting will light up your factory, factory, office, shop, and all other industrial and commercial areas.
LED Lighting are Revolutionary
For this extremely energy-efficient and quickly improving technology, it has been a brief time-line from invention of LED lighting to direct industrial cost-saving apps. This promotes the Nobel Committee finding that LED will be as revolutionary in the 21st century as it was in the 20th century with the incandescent bulb. In every measurable manner, LED is superior.
- The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that extensive use of LEDs by 2027 could save the equivalent annual electrical production of 44 big power plants (1000 megawatts each). Total savings at today’s electricity rates of over $30 billion.
- LEDs cut power consumption by more than 80%.
- LED bulbs last longer than traditional bulbs more than 25 times. LEDs last over 3 years when operating 24/7/365 with a helpful life of 25,000 + hours. Quality LEDs that are used with quality fixtures are anticipated to last 30,000-50,000 hours or longer.
- LEDs do not burn out all of a sudden-they dim only over time.
- By decreasing bulb replacement work, the combination of extraordinarily lengthy life and not further burning out achieves a low-cost lighting scheme.
- LEDs are aimed at light in a particular direction. Instead of spherically, light emits hemispherically. This decreases the lighting demands by providing light, rather than in all directions, where necessary.
- LEDs are extremely vibration and effect resistant and immune. LEDs mount on circuit boards rather than glass enclosures.
- LEDs job at cold temperature and without a warm-up cycle occur immediately. Rapid (on and off) cycling does not affect LEDs, but shortens traditional lighting life. This makes LED ideal for industrial applications like cooled display instances, freezers, cold storage spaces, indoor and much more.
- With a dimming range from 100% to 10% light output, LEDs are much more controllable compared to a low-end limit of 30% for fluorescent lamps. Also, dimming is smooth and constant rather than tiered.
- LEDs nearly do not emit radiation infrarot or ultraviolet and do not contain mercury.
Just as business LED technology is moving forward, so are business uses. In appearance, LED lights are not only extremely effective but also appealing. Making such lighting system ideal for malls, showrooms, offices, and even enhancing the cosmetic appearance of factories.
LED lighting is also used for spotlighting, downlighting, retrofitting of light bulbs and pre-existing lighting fixtures in tube lights, strip lights.
