WHAT IS LED?
A light-emitting diode or an LED is a small semi-conductor chip often less than one millimetre square located in the centre of the bulb. LED's are categorized as Solid State Lighting (SSL) so are Organic Light Emitting Diode's (OLED's) and Light Emitting Polymers (LEP's).LED's by definition are more efficient in converting electricity into light. With advances in technology LED's are now available in bulb & fixture modules hence more adaptable for general lighting Applications.
The projection being that in the near future LED's will be replacing most other traditional lighting sources for both Commercial as well as Residential Lighting. Not only are LED's energy efficient thereby reducing electricity costs but are also maintenance free and allow design centric innovations and artistry in lighting solutions best available Lumens output products are to offer now every all the time.
Luminosity lights use efficient electronic drivers typically delivering a power factor above 0.9. The proprietary design of our electronic drivers help to save energy up to 85% in comparison to conventional lighting.
MAINTENANCE FREE OPERATION
LED lights function for >50,000 hours of maintenance free operation. On normal usage conditions this means up to lOyears of continuous operation without replacement of parts. Being solid state lighting devices, there are no filaments or gas filled tubes in LED lights
LOW HEAT GENERATION
LED lights generate very little heat unlike other conventional lighting such as halogens, sodium vapour and incandescent bulbs. The air conditioning load is greatly reduced with use of LED lights.
CLOSEST TO DAYLIGHT SPECTRUM
The operating frequency of LED lights is closest to daylight spectrum, free of unwanted ultraviolet and infrared frequencies, thereby causing less strain to the eyes. The daylight spectrum results in better photosynthesis which helps in the growth of vegetables and flowers when grown in greenhouses using LED lights.
FLICKER FREE LIGHTING
LED lights do not have any flicker, as is normally associated with gas filled lamps such as FTL and CFL. Therefore, LED lighting is less strenuous on the eyes.
HIGH COLOUR RENDITION
LED lights have a high colour rendition, thereby showing up true colours.
BETTER IMAGE CAPTURE.
Recordings on CCTV for security surveillance are clearer with sharper images under LED lights. Warm and cool light . LEDs have a wide range of colour temperature thus producing warm (yellow) or cool(white) light to suit customer's choice.
LED lights can be used with dimmers.
LOWER COST POWERED APPLICATIONS
LED lights consume up to 65% less power, thereby reducing the solar panel and battery cost in solar lighting applications.
NO TOXIC ELEMENTS
LED lights do not contain any toxic elements such as mercury or heavy metals. There is no need for expensive equipment for safe disposal, and there is no danger to health or environment as in the case of CFL.
GREEN BUILDING CERTIFICATION
LED lights help in meeting the standards for LEDS certification for green building. Terminologies
Watt (W) is a unit of power and when stated with lights, express the energy required. Classic bulbs 60 W deffinitelly require more energy than LED bulbs of 8 W input. Be careful - the consumption data do not say how much light is emitted, to get to know it, check the data on lumen amount.
Lumen (lm) is a light flux unit. A light flux represents the light energy emitted by a light source in 1 second time period. Therefore, a number of lumens shows how much light is emitted by the light source into any direction - higher the number of lumens, higher the light flux. We have to be aware that conventional light sources, such as bulbs, flourescent lamps or gas-discharge lamps, emit the light to every direction, 360°, what many cases is not really necessary. On the other side, LEDs usualy emit the light only in 120° angle what means significant cost reduction if the more effective light source is employed
Lux (lx) is unit of illuminance and luminous emittance, caused by a light flux of 1 lm striking upon the area of 1 m2. The lux value is detremining criteria for industrial lighing applications. Illuminance limits for the exact application are also determinated by the lux value.
Kelvin (K) is a light sources colour temperature unit. This value determines whether the light colour is red (warm) or blue (cool) - higher the Kelvin number, cooler (more intense blue colour) the light.
IP value expresses a light enclosure protection level against the water and solid particles. These levels are expressed by two numerals. Higher the IP number, better the light body protection. First numeral shows the solid particles protection, second one shows the protection against the humidity or water. For example, bathroom or exterior lights must be protected more than common lights, therefore both their IP values need to be higher.
CRI (COLOR RENDERING INDEX)
CRI (color rendering index) or Ra is a colour reproduction index, a measure of the ability of a light source to reproduce the colors of various objects faithfully. Values vary between 0 and 100. Lower the Ra value, lower the colour perception ability. Therefore, if Ra equals 100, the light emitted allows the human eye real colour perception, whereas if Ra value equals 0, a human eye is not able to perceive the colours.
