LED (light emitting diode) Use and Efficiency

As the name suggest, LED or light emitting diode is diode which emits light. This device is capable to allow the current to flow only in one direction. The basic circumstance to create Light Emitting Diode is as following: positively charged of p-type material and negatively charged of n-type material.

This technology has been widely used during the last few years in various equipment including light bulbs. Not only does it provide brighter light in bulb but also more efficient in terms of power source. No wonder it is often said to be the unsung heroes in world’s electronics.

What every LED has is a simple yet strong structure. It is designed specifically to appear versatile and allow various assemblies into various shapes. The one that determines the color is the material of light-emitting semiconductor. Therefore, there can be so many colors produced. That’s why the use of this lighting solution is highly favorable. It’s proven to be long lasting, inherently controllable, highly efficient and environmentally friendly. Both for exterior and interior lighting, it can always create the most creative visions.

LED is now used in various applications. To sum up the types of applications using this advanced technology, there are five categories. The first category as we all know very well is indicator lights. The second category is LCD panel backlighting. The third category is fiber optic data transmission. The fourth category is remote control while the fifth category is optoisolator.

When it comes to its advantages, there are so many to be put on the list. LEDs bulbs are capable in generating high lumen output to ensure the brightness of color and white light. They have exceptional range with dynamic colors consisting of millions of colors and color temperature. 

In terms of energy efficiency, they are 5 times more energy efficient compared to halogen and incandescent course. They are low in current and voltage. They produce low radiated heat because they do not emit the infrared radiation. 

This allows them to be installed in areas which are heat-sensitive. They definitely are reliable as they can operate in environment with colder temperature and withstand vibration and impact in extreme environment. They do not produce infrared radiation and UV rays making them ideal for art galleries and museums.

LED definitely has longer source life compared to conventional light source and easier control including digital and automatic control. Shortly said, this technology has definitely made our lives better and much easier.
