How LED Light Bulbs Are Made

One-hundred-and-thirty years ago, Thomas Edison completed the first successful sustained test of the incandescent light bulb. With some incremental improvements along the way, Edison’s basic technology has lit the world ever since. This is about to change. We are on the cusp of a semiconductor-based lighting revolution that will ultimately replace Edison’s bulbs with a far more energy-efficient lighting solution. Solid state LED lighting will eventually replace almost all of the hundreds of billions of incandescent and fluorescent lights in use around the world today. In fact, as a step along this path, President Obama last June unveiled new, stricter lighting standards that will support the phasing out of incandescent bulbs (which already are banned in parts of Europe).

To understand just how

LED Marine Uses

The Edison bulb that has illuminated our boats since 1879 is formally on the way out. The inefficient incandescent, which loses virtually all of its power as heat, has fallen in popularity. In the early part of 2012, U.S. residents will not be able to buy one even if they wanted to. The government is going to prohibit their manufacture to save energy.

The major substitute for the incandescent light bulb is the higher-efficiency fluorescent bulb. The fluorescent, though, has its own issues, mainly the presence of toxic mercury in the design and strange color that a lot of individuals have an aversion to.

Now enter the LED, or light-emitting diode. LEDs have been available for many years. Numerous issues have prevented businesses from making them in normal, replacement-size bulb form, primarily the price to the customer. Nevertheless in

LED lights are also known as light emitting diode is a semi conductor of source of light. It previously only emitted low frequency red light, but now it has a frequency of visible light, UV and infra reds. That is the reason why it was mostly used in indicator lamps in several devices, but now a day it is also useful in several common daily use. LED light bulbs are most of the time small in size, but emit a huge amount of light. This is because when that light is switched on, the electrons present in that device start recombining with the

LED research directions

LED lighting, as mentioned many times before, has been part of our daily lives for many years now, mainly as a form of signal lighting in appliances or in the digital display of a calculator or watch. Recently however,LED light bulbs has become the h

More kinds of  Led

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.

LED Light against Incandescent Light-Why you must think about Using

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.

Are LED Light Bulbs Worth The High Cost

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, consumers did decide. Activity and Commerce Secretary Fred Upton said, “We heard the bulletin loud and bright from Americans who don’t wish government standards free how they ablaze their homes.”Americans are acutely against to the bill, but is it time we absolve ourselves from the old beaming bulbs and embrace new technology, and will our wallets acknowledge us?

Is the Ablaze Still Weird?
