the rise of led\'s in auto manufacturing
To attract customers, Mercedes-Benz and Ford have introduced color LED lights for new models.
In the past 30 years, there has been little progress in automotive lighting, but rather relying on widely used incandescent lamps.
However, new LED options have emerged in recent years.
LED is the abbreviation of light-emitting diode.
It is a semiconductor that converts electricity into visible light. The light-
Launch efficiency up to 80%-90%.
New, smarter LED options are now visible in automotive electronics and are now known as the fourth generation of automotive glow.
Compared to conventional bulbs, the main advantage of the LED is the service life.
First of all, in theory, the life of the LED light can be up to 50,000 hours.
It could actually be close to 20,000 hours.
Therefore, with the use of LED options, it is possible to never need to replace the lights during the service life of the vehicle.
Another advantage is that the response time of the LED is fast and can be lit without delay.
The start-up time of the LED is only a few tens of nanoseconds, much shorter than the incandescent lamp.
LED is also very energy efficient.
LED brake lights and steering lights can directly convert electric energy into light energy in a lower drive current, making it an ecological
Friendly option, no other power required.
Also, they only need a quarter less than incandescent power.
The LEDs are small in size and compact in structure, allowing for use where traditional lights cannot be installed.
Automotive LED can be divided into two categories: lamps and decorative lights.
Lamps include standard applications such as instrument lights, front and rear turn lights, brake lights, backup lights, fog lights and reading lights.
Decorative uses mainly include chameleon lights on the side or bottom of the car.
Bright market prospects-
Although the LED light source is still a relatively new alternative to the traditional incandescent light source, the technology is mature and is continuing to mature significantly.
The only downside is that in some cases the lead-time cost of the LED can be higher.
However, with the progress of manufacturing and the rise of LED manufacturers in China, it is hoped that LED will become the rear rattan lighting choice for future automakers.
LED has so many advantages that it is almost certainly the future of automotive lighting.
