11 May The LED, efficiency in lighting
Since the invention of the LED in 1962, the path taken in terms of design, utility, functionality, sustainability and performance of the security LED signaling and security technology has had a number of applications in technological devices, since its functionalities allow directing the light, save energy, and illuminate the environment in a more friendly way.
Characteristics of the LED lighting
An LED (Light-Emitting Diode) is a semiconductor diode that radiates high-brightness light, increasingly used in automotive luminaries, signaling or ignition indicators, with visible light, infrared or ultraviolet spectra, in clear plastic, colored or opaque color. These high quality reflective units are manufactured in polycarbonates or methacrylates and can include various utilities for the industry, resulting in indicators, markers and high performance luminaries.
The advantages of the LED lighting in relation to other incandescent or fluorescent lights are based on lower energy consumption – in the range of 50 to 60% – less space, durability, resistance to vibrations and instantaneous ignition, being also suitable for use with energy systems alternatives such as solar panels.
LEDs can be used in almost all current lighting devices, in telecommunications, in remote control mechanisms and in video playback screens.
LED high performance and sustainable
The LED lighting provides the benefit of reducing the heat radiation produced by the greenhouse effect and also does not contain mercury like other light units that are highly toxic to human health.
When it comes to choosing high performance luminaries, efficiency in consumption and lighting or sustainable signage, it seems obvious the choice of a LED with high durability polycarbonate cover.
