LED Lights—Materials That Impact The Performance Of Lighting

Summary: 
LED lights are today’s talk of every home and office for decorative purposes and functionality. This article tells that how LED lights are such valuable today and for what reasons it provides such eminent lighting. 

An Overview

As we all know that LED lights are today’s tremendous alternative to the traditional and conventional incandescent lights that are being widely used until the arrival of the LED lights. LEDs have longer lives than incandescent lights. In fact, some of the LED types last for 1, 00,000 hours as compared to the lesser life of incandescent bulbs. 

A Major Decision While Buying LED Lights

One of the biggest concerns while buying LED lights is its life. “For how long does LED light function properly?” is the major question which pops up by every buyer. High Bay heat sinks of LED lights play a significant role when concerning about life of the LED light. Heat sinks are usually placed at the back of the LED lights. So people might also think, “Why do they bother about what is at the back if the LEDs are working properly?” The fact is that the thing which is at the back—heat sink- is the most important aspect for the lifetime of an LED light. The heat sink or the material used directly affects the life of the LED light. So, while buying, people should check the material of the heat sink so, the lights perform the best. 
One must have seen water sinks in the bathroom. What do they do? They remove the additional water in the container thus helping to have a smooth and continuous flow of water in it. Similarly, a heat sink works in this manner. High bay heat sink acts as a sink to remove the heat from a system. Subsequently, in an LED light, when heat is produced, the heat sink removes the heat from it, thereby certifying removal of heat in a continuous way from the system and improving the performance of the LED light. 

Factors Depending on Performance of Heat Sinks

Since some heat sink types like LED Light bar brackets absorb heat from the LED light and dissipates all outside, here are a couple of factors on which the performance of a heat sink depends— 
Since the transfer of heat from the LED light to the surroundings take place from the heat sink, it is advised that the surface area of the heat sink should be large. The vast surface area of a heat sink can be achieved by increasing the number of fins, or by increasing the size of the heatsink altogether. 
A high bay heat sink with a painted surface improves the amount of dissipation of heat. This effect can even be more pronounced when the transfer of heat happens by radiation of heat in the surroundings. 
This covers one of the most important factors responsible for the performance of the heat sink. Copper has very high thermal conductivity while another choice for the material of the heat sink can be aluminum as well. The eminent heat sink types like High Bay Heat Sinks are manufactured with aluminum which provides the best lighting than anything else.

Thus, while buying the LED lights, every customer should consider the quality of heat sinks responsible for prominent LED lighting.

What Decides the Quality of LED Light?

Summary:
With an extended lifespan and far low running costs as compared to traditional bulbs, LED lighting has begun to spread more efficient light into the homes across the globe. But, what decides the quality of such eminent LED lights and what do you need to know before converting to LED? Let us know here in this blog.

A Start Off

LED—Light Emitting Diode has come up to be efficient and sustainable lighting source with countless applications. There are many types of light emitting diodes, and each diode is used for some particular purpose.
LEDs are extremely durable and are made up of sturdy components that withstand even the roughest condition. As having numerous advantages of LED like energy efficient, no ultraviolet rays emission, durable, flexible, ecologically friendly, and operational in every season, low voltage supply, reduced power consumption and more, these lights emits an enormous amount of light that dissipates equally.

Determining the Factors

Now that the LED lights are available in the global market, the question arises what are those important factors that decide the quality of the LED light? Today we will discuss the factors:

Chips

The chips take up 40% of the cost of an entire LED light. In authentic LED lights, it is the chip with decides the price of the LED Lights. The development of the LED Chips with technology leads the direction of LED Lighting. Hence, not only the brand of the chip decides the price, but also the quality as well.

LED Coolers—Heat Sinks

As we know that LED emits an enormous amount of light which dissipates equally so, it is imperative to keep the LED junction below the maximum operating temperature. Hence, this can be achieved by using high quality of LED heatsinks or commonly known as LED cooling property. LED heat sink is a device which is used just to absorb the heat and cool up the device by dissipating heat into the surrounding equally. Also, to extend the life of LED light bulbs, the manufacturers look forwardly to use LED cooling options.

LED Fixtures

The active cooling technology—LED coolers use convection to move heat off of the LED. As the air moves across fixtures, the heat is dissipated. By using an active fan, the amount of air passing over the LED fixtures becomes high enough to keep the fixture cooler. Thus, the LED fans and fixtures also play a significant role in making the LED lighting as a quality approved lighting across the globe.

Advantages of Converting to LED lighting

Efficient to Energy

LED lights are up to 90% more energy efficient than filament or halogen bulbs as the traditional lighting sources.

Long-Life

An accurately installed LED light lasts over 50,000 hours, as compared to the 5,000 hours of traditional bulbs.

Instant turn-on

The LED lights turn on instantly unlike other traditional lights which have a warming up period and lit up taking some minutes

Manageable

The LED lights can be controlled and managed for brightness and color as well as for setting it according to directions. This means the light is nowhere wasted.

Environmental friendly

The LED lights contain no mercury or other hazardous substances. Moreover, that is the reason they are greatly preferred for extended lighting time.

Closing Lines

Thus, the LED module of LED lights is manufactured and set up so well that the LEDs are capable of emitting eco-friendly lights without any hassle.

The overall effect of restructuring on the LED lighting market

What could be the overall effect of this restructuring on the lighting market? IHS believes that the reorganization could turn the leading lighting manufacturers into pure-play lighting companies that can be more focussed on dynamic markets offering greater growth potential. The restructuring will also allow LED makers to raise capital for further investment, and will likewise let them reduce the hierarchal burden associated with being part of a large conglomerate. This, in turn, could lead to improved margins for the companies—and possibly lower-priced products for consumers.

Light no longer provides illumination alone. LED lighting for indoor positioning, for instance, takes things a step further by sending a basic signal to determine position and help in navigation. Li-Fi, competing with the far more established Wi-Fi, now takes the concept to the next level, using visible LED light for high-speed data transmission of material such as movies, music, or any other form of data.

Packaged LED industry is moving downstream and getting smarte

Some years ago, the senior management at Japanese based chemicals company Nichia suggested it believed that value and leadership in LED lighting would come from quality chips. U.S.-based Cree, meanwhile, stressed that value would increasingly filter down the value chain. Since then, Cree has moved, indeed, in that direction—along with other LED players, such as MLS.

In the last year or two, manufacturers have put increasing emphasis on greater vertical integration, focusing particularly on chip-on-board, modules and light engines. These products have provided an intermediate step in the supply chain between the component LED and a complete lamp or luminaire, and they offer an opportunity for LED manufacturers to diversify and move downstream without going to the extent of producing complete lamps or luminaires.

Moving downstream may be an attractive strategy given the low profit margin for component packaged LEDs and the possibility of Chinese vendors taking a greater share of this market in the future. Many companies, such as Bridgelux, Cree, LG Innotek, Lumileds, Samsung, Seoul Semiconductor and Sharp are supplying these products. Lighting companies, such as Philips and Osram, are also suppliers, as are power/module companies like BAG, Harvard, ULT and Xicato.

Within the smart lighting market there is a trend toward individual luminaire control. One way this can be achieved is by incorporating sensors and controls into the electronics, found at the light engine level. IHS anticipates more engines incorporating smart lighting technologies coming onto the market in 2015, although actual penetration will remain low.

Smart lighting is another way for companies to attempt to add value and improve profit margins. As the LED lighting market moves downstream with modules and light engines, incorporating smart lighting sensors and controls will become, over time, another important part of this trend.


Choosing holder for LEDs

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode. These semiconductor diodes emit light when voltage is applied to them. They are used in a variety of applications such as electric lighting, flashlights, traffic lights, streetlights, and alphanumeric displays that appear on digital watches, calculators, and scoreboards, for example. They may also be used as a signal that power is on, and in this role appear on computers, appliances, and on garage door openers. An LED is placed in some kind of LED holder in many cases in order to easily and securely inserts it into its working position.

When purchasing LEDs for a project, one will find that some LEDs come already attached to an LED holder, while some LED holders are offered for sale separately. LEDs already placed in an LED holder are often found in 4mm, 5 mm, and 6 mm (.157, .197, and .236 in), and colors such as orange, green, and red, as well as red/yellow. This type of LED holder should not be confused with an LED installation. They are small and inexpensive and often used as power indicators.

There is a much greater variety with the independently sold LED holder. First, there is a wide range of material. An LED holder may be made of thermoplastic, brass, painted plastic, chrome, or a combination of materials. Holders may be square or round, and they may screw into place or be of the snap-in variety. Holder colors are often black, white, chrome, or brass.
