  (Which translates to increased safety)


Light Conversion Efficiency:

60-95% of energy consumed by traditional light source are converted into heat and infrared spectrum with the actual energy used to convert into visible light a mere 5-40%. Comparatively, LEDs converts 90% of energy consumed into light.

Longevity:

The average lifespan of an LED is about 50,000 hours. The latest LED technology achieves a lifespan of 100,000 hours. If you use an LED with a lifespan of 50,000 hours at 10 hours daily, the lifespan can exceed 10 years. It is an amazing figure considering the performance of other light source.

Low Energy Consumption:

Lighting consumes an estimated 22% of total energy consumption globally. With energy costs and demand projected to increase, LED's energy savings ratio of 50-90% when compared with traditional light sources aids in reducing energy costs significantly.

Low Maintenance Cost:

The high reliability and lifespan of LED lighting helps eliminate and/or reduce annual maintenance cost between 70-90%. The reinstallation and waste removal process of LED lighting is simple and does not require waste removal control compared with traditional lighting, which reduces maintenance cost.

Flicker & Noise Free:

LEDs are electronic components that does not cause flickering and noise. Its silent and smooth optical operation prevents it from being an occupational health hazard when compared with traditional lighting.

High Luminous Efficacy:

In most of cases, luminous efficacy of LED is 70-100 lm/w. The highest luminous efficacy is up to 160lm/w in 2008. The luminous efficacy of incandescent lights is 8-15lm/w. Therefore, it's about 8 times than incandescent lights. Power factor of LED lights is over 90%.

Eco-friendly:

There are no UV, IR, lead and mercury in LED lights. They meet eco-friendly illuminating project perfectly. Besides, LEDs can be touched as there is little heat when operating.

Full Range of Colors:

LED is available in a range of colors, including white, warm white, red, blue, yellow and so on. Besides, the color is easily controlled. Therefore, RGB colors are available. Jumpy changing and gradual changing of colors are available.

Design Flexibility:

Because LED is very small, it's very help for the design of lighting. Its dimming and RGB color changing function also enhances it design flexibility.

Solid State Lighting:

Unlike traditional lightings, LEDs are made with solid state components making it difficult to break with external shock.

Directional Lighting:

LED is a directional light source as opposed to traditional lighting. This reduces the waste of light emission when compared with traditional light sources where light is directed onto areas that do not require illumination.
