ABOUT LEDs

 

   LEDís ARE THE WAVE OF THE FUTURE!  

 

LED FACTS:

  LED   Stands for Light Emitting Diode.

  LEDís are the most efficient way of lighting today, the LED is 80% more efficient than the standard incandescent light bulb or fluorescent tube.

  LEDís have a life expectancy of 100,000 hours.   This is 11.4 years if the LEDís are on 24 hours a day.

  LEDís are very durable and they are suitable for indoor and outdoor use. LEDís work great in all kinds of weather conditions.

 

 

COMPARING LED TO FLUORESCENT LIGHTS:

 

The Standard fluorescent 60 x 2 = 120 watt tubes uses over 1 kwh of electricity every 24 hours; this has a minimum cost of  $ 0.39 per 24 hours. (depending on cost bracket). 

24 hour cost   =    $0.39

                       X         30 Days

                            $ 11.70 per month/ per fixture

 

  LEDís  =  $11.70 - 80%   =  $2.34  per month .   .   Savings of   $9.36   per month.

 

Fluorescent glass tubes have mercury in them in order to work. Fluorescent tubes have to be changed usually with in a year.  Fluorescents also have the danger of the glass tube breaking.

 

  LEDís are 99.9% solid, the material used in building LEDís is epoxy.  Epoxy is a very hard durable chemical compound that will withstand most conditions.

 

 

LED ADVANTAGES:

 

LED lights have better performance than traditional lighting devices such as incandescent bulbs, fluorescent tubes, ect...   There are many advantages when using LEDís for lighting; here is a list with some of them:    

 

  Reduces approximately  80%  of the power consumption compared to traditional light sources.

  Long life time (between  100,000 to 150,000 hours) 

        24hr/per/day  =   11.4  to  17.2 years

  Does not produce heat.

  As a solid state device, can be used in applications with certain impact or vibration.

  Easy to apply to any design.

  Can be used on AC or DC circuits.

  Excellent for usage on microcontrolled systems.

  Excellent for designing multicolor (RGB) lighting devices.

  Very fast off-on on-off time response.

  Custom made allows easier installation.

We have a very wide variety of LED's and LED assemblies, in different shapes, sizes and opto-electrical characteristics, thus you can find the right device for your specific application.
