INFORMATION

LEDS

(

Light-emiting diodes

) are an integral part of modern society and our everyday lives for much longer than we might think. They are the indicator

lights

and numeric displays on our automobiles, our stereos, tv's and vcr's microwaves, clock radios and digital watches, cell phones and ipods.

LEDS

were first invented in 1907, but it was used only in such electronic devices and systems since the 1970's.

Its is only since the 1990's that

LEDS

was introduced into

lighting

and the mass production of

LED Lighting

only became economically viable over the past few years as the demand for it grew on the back of advances in the technology that basically brought it on par with the quality of

conventional lighting

. The countless benefits of

LED lighting

have since been discovered and these robust, low energy using devices is now seen by many as the answer to the world wide energy crisis.

The new generation

LED lights

is more powerful with high power

LED chips

that requires special power supplies and power drivers and heat sincs for good heat dissipation. The semiconductor chips are made of crystal, coated with phosphor and is embedded in resin, making it virtually indestructible.

BENEFITS OF LEDS

LEDS

have countless benefits and the only disadvantage for many is the costs which is of course an unfortunate perception as

LEDS

are really a cheaper alternative as it has a short pay-back period and a good ROI (Return on investment).

  1. The most important benefit of

    LEDS

    is its extremely

    low power consumption

    and subsequent energy saving (Up to 95%) Over the next few years LEDS could radically slow down the demand for energy world-wide.
  2. They do not generate much heat and stay cool over long periods of time as they are manufactured with good heat dissipation elements. Hence they last very long and is much less of a fire and health hazard than

    conventional lights

    . The fact that Leds stay cool also results in the less frequent use of air conditioning in summer.

    LED Lights

    is also good for growing plants.
  3. LEDS

    thus have an extremely long life span of 30000 - 50000 hours. This translate to

    LEDS

    lasting up to thirty years with normal usage.
  4. LEDS

    are extremely robust and durable devices that is insensitive and immune to vibrations and fluctuations and unlike incadendescent, halogen and fluorescent lights can handle power surges and other current fluctuations extremely well.
  5. LEDS

    does not flicker, make noise or have a start-up time, hence it is easier on the eyes and ears, especially in the office environment and is as such a healthier alternative.
  6. LEDS is very environmentally friendly and is seen as green products for the following reasons;

    1. It is recyclable as

      LEDS

      can easily be fixed or repaired as the main part, the chip, is virtually indestructible.
    2. LEDS

      don't contain any mercury or other hazardous substances like CFL's and fluorescent so they are safe for disposal.
    3. LEDS

      don't emit ultraviolet

      light

      or infrared radiation, hence it is good for the environment and safe for humans to be close to.
    4. The proliferation of

      LED lighting

      will slow down the demand for energy and thus the production of electricity which is accompanied by very high levels of CO 2 emissions due to the use of fossil fuels.
