the advantages or led mr16 spot lights
They are popular because the original halogen lamp MR16 is commonly used in the home, and the led can instantly replace most of them.
In addition, the led has better quality and many advantages compared to halogen lamps.
The MR16 represents a multi-faceted reflector with a diameter of 16 inch or 2 inch.
Alternatively, the same bulb has different diameters: the MR11 and MR8 spotlights are multi-faceted reflector in a smaller size.
The MR16 bulb usually works at low pressure and has a gu5. 3 fitting type.
The most common operating voltage of these bulbs is 12 V, and if the product does not have polarity sensitivity, it can be installed on both AC and DC power supplies at the same time.
The MR16 bulb that works on mains has GU10 accessories, known as the GU10 spotlight.
In order to be able to understand and value the useful features of the LED replacement, we must simply look at the halogen lamp MR16.
The halogen mr16 bulb has a reflective surface: the inside part of the bulb is made of pressure glass or aluminum and is cheaper.
The glass surface is prone to explosion under constant pressure.
The reflective surface controls the direction and propagation of the light and enhances the light of the bulb.
The bulb can obtain various beam angles from a narrow angle of 10 to 60, however, the most commonly used spot light is about 45-60 degrees.
The color temperature of the halogen mr16 is very warm, the light is yellow, and it is easy to change with dimming.
The main drawback of halogen lamps MR16 is their low power conversion rate, converting most of them to heat instead of light.
Therefore, their power consumption is very high, and the heat emitted is also very high. Not only is it dangerous to contact, but it is also dangerous to be placed near textiles or wood during operation.
Halogen lamps are a fire hazard for any family and should be installed and operated with care.
The ultraviolet rays from the halogen lamp MR16 bulb are quite dangerous to human health, and are also sensitive to vibration and vibration.
Both issues were solved in part by a glass cover that filters most of the UV rays and acts as an explosive shield.
On the other hand, the LED MR16 spotlight is not affected by most of the shortcomings mentioned above.
Although the LED lights do not have an internal surface for reflection, since they are a replacement for the original reflector, they are called MR points.
The beam angle also changes as the LED light changes, usually within the optical range of the diode.
Compared with halogen lamps, the change of color temperature is much larger.
The cooler white temperature can be closer to natural light and does not turn the room yellow.
At the same time, the color version of The MR16 lamp is also provided in the led.
LED lights generally have the advantages of cool running and environmental protection
Friendly design and long service life (
Usually in 30 000-50 000 hours)
High power led can even run 24/7.
LEDs are not sensitive to vibration or impact and also work at low temperatures.
The most obvious advantage of LEDs is that the power consumption is extremely low.
Since LEDs convert 90% of the electricity into light, the amount of heat they release is greatly reduced, meaning there is no or very little fire hazard at home.
LED lights are also available in Gu5.
3 GU10 for low voltage and mains accessories.
For LEDs working at low voltage, the working power supply is of great significance.
Electronic Transformers for halogen are generally not suitable for operating LEDs for two reasons.
Many Transformers require a minimum voltage to start working, and the led will not start using only a small amount of power compared to halogen lamps.
Another reason, from the LED\'s point of view, is actually more important because the electronic transformer will destroy the LED lights.
While LEDs are very sensitive to changes in voltage or current, halogen does not require a stable voltage.
If you are replacing the halogen lamp MR16, it is better to buy the right LED transformer to ensure that they have a long service life.
