LED is the abbreviation for light-emitting diode.
LEDs consist of semiconductors that convert electrical energy to light. For this reason, LED lighting does not emit as much heat as conventional bulbs.
In contrast, the filament bulb, invented in 1880 by Thomas Alva Edison, emits light as a result of intensively heating up the filament.
Interesting facts about LEDs
|LED service life||24h/day||8h/day||4h/day|
|20,000 h/80%||2.2 years||6.8 years||13.6 years|
|30,000h/70%||3.4 years||10.3 years||20.5 years|
|50,000 h/50%||5.7 years||17.1 years||34.2 years|
All LED benefits at a glance:
- With approximately 50,000 hours the service life of an LED is around twenty times longer than that of a filament bulb - achieve additional savings by not having to replace filament bulbs
- Highly efficient with low energy consumption
- Low levels of heat dissipation
- No UV emissions
- Resistant to impacts and vibrations
- Low levels of glare
- No humming noise
- Wide available range
- All RGB colours possible
- Extremely long service life/no more costly replacements
- Resistant to shattering and vibrations
- No UV/IR emissions/gentle light lends pictures, furniture and textiles their genuine colours.
- Wide range of available colours
- Environmentally friendly properties/long service life result in less waste, lower energy consumption reduces CO2 emissions.
