Advantage of using LED

You are saving considerable power and money by using LED lighting fixtures.
The efficiency of LED lighting fixtures is almost 8 times higher than those using incandescent lighting and 2 times higher than compact florescent ones.

The LED-based fixtures give out a higher light percentage towards the desired direction due to the high-technology optics they are fitted with. This makes them even more efficient than classic lighting solutions used for both architectural illumination, interior lighting, decorative or ambient lighting.

Unlike incandescent light sources, LEDs generate low heat. The EPA (Environment Protection Agency) constantly encourages us to use innovative solutions for light sources, like LEDs. In normal operation conditions, the lifetime of LEDs is approx. 100,000 hours; considering 24/7 continuous operation, LEDs could very well work for more than 10 years.

LEDs are not sensitive to mechanical shocks, vibrations or sudden temperature variations, which are known to be destructive for incandescent or fluorescent lamps.

Unlike classic lamps, LEDs are not affected by repeated on/off cycles. When turned on, LED-based lighting fixtures provide fast and maximum intensity light. Typical response time for LED to be switched on is 20ms, take for an example, the AFL (Automobile front lamp) for a car running at a speed of 100KM/hour, the sudden turn on of the head lamp can light up 13.5M more distance ahead your Car to avoid an accident than the HID, which may take 0. 5 seconds to be fully turn for intensity.

Even in low temperature conditions. LED-generated heat is much lower than that generated by incandescent lamps, which might even cause fires in numerous occasions.

LED can have different colour, with certain control it can have numerous changes on colour for display purpose.

LED can be used a BLU to LCD display, edge lit or full panel back lit. It can provide local diming for achieving up to 2,000,000:1 Contrast.

LED can be used to detect the Oxygen, carbon monoxide level inside blood instantly by clipping the sensor on your thumb, while the sensor is connected to a handheld analyzer and display.
The applications of LED has not come to an end! With your imagination, we are sure there are many more to come!
