led lighting - the future of energy efficient lighting
Due to large investments in recent years (
Philips spend more than $5 billion on the LED market)
LED technology has matured to LED bulbs (
Or often called \"Lights \")
Provides true equivalent light output for conventional incandescent, halogen or compact fluorescent lamps.
Today\'s LED lights or tubes are durable and do not contain filaments;
There is no chance of crushing, crushing or mercury contamination.
Rated life of many market-leading LED lights up to 50,000 hours (
50x longer than standard incandescent lamps)
90% less energy than traditional lamps.
The best way to understand the benefits of LED lighting is to calculate the cost of ownership: calculate the electricity and cost saved by not having to replace the blown bulb during the life of the lamp (
More than 10 years in many cases).
Of course, another strong reason to switch to an LED light is because it is very good for the environment.
LED lights consume 90% less power, which means 90% less carbon dioxide emissions.
So, you can cut your carbon footprint while cutting your energy bill!
LED light manufacturers are easier than ever to switch to LED lighting, designed LED lights with the same light output, size and lid base as traditional lights.
This makes the transformation easy.
In most cases, LED lights will be inserted directly into existing fixtures and accessories, and many provide similar dimming functions.
Customer can choose color temperature (e. g.
Warm White, cool white)
They prefer the beam angle that matches the existing settings.
Designers also pay attention to the aesthetics of LED lights to make sure they look as good as the traditional lights they replaced.
This is especially important for candles or bulbs in chandeliers or lamps, as decorative effects are important.
In fact, Philips uses the input of the chandelier manufacturer to intentionally design the candle lamp, not only when lighting, but also when it is not illuminated, to enhance the aesthetic appeal of the chandelier, with a classic slender shape and unique eyescatching lens.
High quality LED lights save a lot of energy, reduce maintenance costs and provide shiny warm light.
You might say compact fluorescent (\'CFLs\')
A good enough choice.
Let\'s take a look: The total cost of ownership of CFLs is very low and the quality of light is very poor (
And contains harmful ultraviolet radiation)
They are very large (some say ugly! )
Most of them are not dimmable, energy efficiency is average, and the biggest problem is that CFLs contains toxic mercury steam and is therefore a hazardous waste.
The Led will soon replace the low energy CFL light as the lighting option.
The UK energy conservation trust recommends that if everyone there changes the lights to LED when possible, we will be able to save enough energy to light up 5 million families!
It\'s easy to see that LED lights are the future of lighting.
LED retrofit replacement strategy: Adhoc: you may plan to replace traditional lights when they explode.
This strategy is simple and effective, minimizing capital expenditure.
However, in the long run, it is more expensive because you have delayed the cost-of-ownership savings for lamps that have not been replaced, and you cannot take advantage of any volume discounts when purchasing LED lights or accessories.
Phased: if the capital cost limit means that you need to replace the fixture in stages, it is better to prioritize the fixture inventory according to the ranking of the fixture opening time.
Hospitable business owners are likely to have plenty of halogen all the time in stairwells, corridors, and great ocean.
It is important to replace these products first, as this will bring the greatest benefits.
Homeowners may find that starting with the highly used kitchen and living room, it is easiest to adopt a room-by-room approach.
Complete Transformation: This method is capital intensive, but generates the greatest return on finance, environment and functionality.
For large-scale transformation (
Usually> 200 lights)
Leasing financing options available for energy-saving lighting projects (e. g.
In the UK, the Carbon Trust funds are funded through its partner Siemens Financial Services).
This is notable because LED energy cost savings are often enough to cover financial costs and therefore become a cost-neutral strategy.
The lease term is usually 3 or 4 years after which the customer owns the lamps and fittings.
At the same time, the monthly rental fee is only paid from saving energy costs.
Lamp Type: The lamp is either low voltage (LV = 12V)
Or supply voltage (MV = 230-240V in the UK).
Most high quality LED lights are also dimmable and will work on most dimming systems for easy replacementout retrofit.
Medium voltage lamps: lamps with the following bases (or sockets)
Generally, the voltage in the market is 230-240V AC (UK):-
SES, E14, E27 refer to the type of screw socket.
SES represents the same small Edison screw as the E14 socket (i. e.
Diameter of the base or 14mm
, Usually found on Chandelier accessories.
The E27 Socket is a medium diameter Edison screw with a base diameter of 27mm and is usually located on a desk lamp, GLS pendant, or PAR fixture. -
B15 and B22 refer to the type of bayonet socket. B15 sockets (i. e.
Diameter of the base or 15mm
Usually found on Chandelier accessories.
The B22 socket, with a base diameter of 22mm, usually appears on a desk lamp or GLS pendant. -
GX53 and GU10 basesLow Lamps: low voltage Lamps (sockets)
Usually connected to a transformer (or Driver)
Reduce the supply voltage to 12 v dc.
Fortunately, you don\'t need to touch the transformer when you go into the lamp renovation
The premium 12 v led light is compatible with most halogen lamp Transformers for simple transformation.
The number of lamps that can be used on the transformer depends on the total wattage of the lamp, and the total wattage should be less than the total wattage capacity of the transformer.
Lamps with the following bases operate at low voltage, 12v DC :-GU5.
3 Base: general use of MR16 lamps-
GU4 base: MR11 lamps or capsules for general use-
G53 base: AR111 lamp head temperature is generally used: lamps and tubes are available at various color temperatures: The higher the color temperature, the cooler the impression of white light.
The color temperature of sunlight is very high (over 5,500K).
LED lights generally range from 2,700K to 4,200 K.
LED tubes generally range from 4,000K to 6,500 K.
The choice of color temperature may depend on the space atmosphere you like: Beam angle: The LED light is usually damaged by a single or multiple LEDs on the chip.
The light is dispersed in a way that mimics a traditional incandescent lamp or halogen lamp source using a complex lens.
LED Downlight (or spots)
There are usually various beam angle options to simulate the light dispersion of the halogen light reflector.
The choice of beam angle depends on the application and ceiling height.
Narrow beams are usually used to highlight, produce, or display lighting, or where the ceiling is high and the beam has more space to disperse.
Generally distributed room lighting often uses a wide beam, or the ceiling is low, and the space for Beam dispersion is small.
The beam angle ranges from 15 to 60 degrees, but the options depend on the model of the lamp.
Living space usually benefits from a beam angle of more than 24 degrees.
