LED (Light Emitting Diode) tube lights are soon advancing to become the forefront of traditional lighting, that consist of fluorescent tube lights and CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Lamps). LED tube lights have a low luminous intensity, therefore they offer better distribution of light as compared to other sources of light and the intensity of glare too is reduced to a greater extent. They are energy efficient and more durable than other traditional sources of light, hence it makes sense to save in frugal electricity bills and replacement costs. LED lighting works on the lines of green technology, that is they create less carbon emissions and do not contain toxic mercury or any hazardous elements. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about getting the entire wiring system changed; a few simple modifications in the existing fixtures will serve the purpose. So, the next time you happen to change your existing tube light, make sure you consider installing LED tube lights.

LED lights are being used in many different devices, and companies will use this technology because it lasts longer and they provide better colors. But, are these LED lights easier on the eyes, or do they cause eyestrain? For instance, many people have suffered from migraines if exposed to LED light for an extended period of time, but the popular thought is that the light affects only sensitive individuals.

Damage

Unfortunately, research shows LEDs are indeed able to cause harm to eyes compared to other types of technology.

However, this is more because of LEDs’ strength in brightness and not its particular properties.. As the strength grows, so does the eye damage.

LED (light emitting diode) works together in the form of a team and produce white light. If you see a fixture of one LED light then you will find there many diodes, which emit and radiate different kinds of lights with different wavelengths and colors. Generally, lights of these diodes are of basic colors like yellow, red, and blue. When light of all these diodes having basic light combine they form a white light.Therefore, these lights are different form normal and traditional fluorescent phosphorescent bulbs. These diodes can also emit different kinds of lights if you will combine them with different lighting and colors effects.

For example, a LED with blue basic color will emit light in blue color and it would be for other LEDs as well.Therefore, these LED lights are important and you can use these lamps in aquariums, so these lights are the best source for providing lights to fishes and plants and this light is much important for life of plants and fishes.

In simple terms, Light Emitting Diode (LED) has a semiconductor which transports the electrons through it to produce powerful beam of light. Of late LEDs are preferred over the traditional fluorescent or incandescent bulbs as the former has huge advantage over the rest. The LEDs do not over heat which reduces fire hazard risks and they also consume very less energy which makes it an ideal choice from the rest. There are various types of LEDs and LED light bulbs available in the market.

TYPES OF LED BULB:

Generally the bulb types can be distinguished in two ways, the amount of power (watt) they consume and the size (mm) of the LEDs. First let’s see the different types of LEDs with respect to power:

1 watt LED: It’s the basic and low power LED available in the market. It’s generally used for indication purpose e.g.: to indicate the on/off status of the home appliances. It’s also widely used in automotive industry. Students who do hobby projects too chose this type of LED.

3 watt LED: The 3 watt LED offers good performance to price ratio and are the one be chosen if you wish a good performance for less price. They also come with aluminium mould, so making it easily mountable.

5 watt LED: They come in various forms like 4V, 12V, 110V. They are used in light bulbs generally as they produce high beam of light with considerable cheap price. They also come in different colours which can be adjusted with help of a remote control.

6 watt LED: They are very bright and used in all home, automotive and customized projects. Mostly they are used in illuminated light showers. They also come in various colours.

7 watt LED: They are generally compared to halogen lights and come in ready to install mode. They have well on/off response time and are shake resistant making it an ideal choice for headlights in automotiv.

A LED light, or light-emitting diode, is said to be the future of household lighting. More and more consumers are starting to use LED light bulbs instead of the traditional incandescent ones or any other type of lighting options. While incandescent bulbs make use of filament to produce light, LED bulbs make use of photons, which are created by the movements of the electrons inside a semiconductor material.

While incandescent bulbs make use of filament to produce light, LED bulbs make use of photons, which are created by the movements of the electrons inside a semiconductor material.

There are many reasons why people are choosing LED lighting over other types of household lighting options, particularly the incandescent light bulbs. When it comes to energy efficiency and bulb life, they are definitely better than the incandescent bulbs.

LEDs basically consume one-fifth energy and last 30 times longer than the traditional lighting bulbs. While an incandescent bulb produce approximately 98% of energy as heat, a LED bulb can burn very cool. Also, a LED light is known to have a long lifespan, generally lasting from 50,000 to 100,000 hours of use; such a huge difference from an incandescent bulb which can last for only about 1,000 hours.

While energy efficiency and long lifespan are the two main benefits you can get from a LED light bulb, here are some other reasons why you should choose them over incandescent bulbs.

Technology led by care -care for the environment – that is the first identity of the LED light bulb.

Technology led by care – care for the environment – that is the first identity of the LED light bulb. LED or Light Emitting Diode bulbs are solid-state lamps that have semiconductor light emitting diodes (LEDs), organic LEDs, or polymer LEDs. Although the light emitted by one diode is insufficient for domestic or commercial use, multiple diodes put in together normally do the trick pretty well. A single high-power chip emits about 7500 lumens by using a mere 100 watts of power.

Why Use LED Light Bulbs

Notwithstanding the energy efficiency of LED light bulbs, their technology is useful in many more ways. They are mercury-free, which makes them all the more environment-friendly and pro-health. LED bulbs also have an enhanced life of 50 to 100 thousand hours! Their longer life renders them pocket-friendly and cost-effective. LED light bulbs are friendly to more than just your pocket. The simple fact that they do not produce considerable amount of heat during use makes the environment smile in gratitude as well. LEDs convert an amazing 90 percent of the electric energy into light as against a mere 15 percent converted by normal halogen light bulbs.

Are there some people like facility managers, building owners, and lighting specifiers among Lightingever.com’s customers? I think Yes. You wonder the way how they choose, right? I’ll tell you.

Selection of LED lights depends on their unique characteristics, they are:

1. Directional Light Emission

Unlike all directions emission of traditional light sources, LEDs emit light hemispherically mounted on a flat surface, so they reduce wasted light.

2. Low Profile/ Compact Size

The small size and directional light emission of LEDs offer the potential for innovative, low-profile, compact lighting design. The LED parking structure light shown here is only 6 inches high, compared to a common metal halide parking garage fixture almost 12 inches high. In parking garages with low ceilings, that six-inch difference can be valuable. For directed light applications with lower luminous flux requirements, the low profile benefit of LEDs can be exploited to a greater extent. Under-, over-, and in-cabinet LED lighting can be very low-profile, in some cases little more than the LED devices on a circuit board attached unobtrusively to the cabinetry.

There is a buzz around LED lighting. Seen as the future of lighting, LED lights are gaining popularity because they truly are energy-saving. A typical household bulb can be replaced by an LED globe that uses no more that 10% of the electricity the original bub used. That adds up to a good saving across the household and a significant saving for a commercial office or factory facility. But there is a catch.

The cost of these LED bulbs is significantly higher than the conventional lighting you are probably still using. So how do you determine if you’ll get the increased purchase price back from your electricity savings?

A simple way is to look at the number of hours you will use the light. So for a 60 Watt bedside light, at say 1 hour a day, you’ll use it no more than 365 hours a year. That is 365 x 60 Watts x 1 hour = 21900 Watts hours or 21 Kilowatt hours. At US$0.1 per Kilowatt hour, that is US$2.1 per year.

In the present day, LED bulbs have become more and more recognized by the customers. The visual appeal of LED light bulbs seems very much the same (or similar if not the same) as the conventional light bulubs. This article will take a look at the typically seen lampholders of LED bulbs, e.g., E26/E27, B22, MR16, GU10, Par 30 and Par 38 etc.

Light Emitting Diodes, or LEDs, are widely used at this moment in various devices – LEDs could be founded in remote controls, toys, and machines etc. Also, LEDs are commonly used for traffic lights, i.e., traffic signals, message boards etc. However, so far, LEDs have not become popular in the mainstream lighting markets, probably because LED lights are still very much more costly than conventional lighting such as incandescent light bulbs and fluorescent tubes.
