LEDs are taking the world by storm, ranging from kitchens and bathrooms to skyscrapers and city streets.
This article briefly introduces some examples, advantages and considerations of LEDs used in industrial lighting.
What are the examples of LED used in industrial lighting?
Industrial facilities have a wide range of applications, and different lighting standards are required according to the needs of specific spaces.
▲ Such as in warehouses and distribution centers. These spaces require luminaires with a variety of light distributions to evenly illuminate a large common area, while at the same time providing good vertical candlelight on the high-shelf aisles.
▲ Such as in a manufacturing plant. These spaces require precise optical control to improve visibility and safety, and minimize maintenance workload;at the same time, manufacturing plants also need durable lamps to withstand more complex and harsh environments.
▲ Such as in food processing and cold storage rooms. These spaces must meet strict regulatory requirements, and the lamps must be airtight, moisture-proof, and provide maximum light output.
LED lamps can meet these standards, can provide higher quality lights and higher aesthetics, without the shortcomings of traditional high-output lamps.
What are the main advantages of LED used in industrial lighting?
1. Reduce energy costs. Compared with HID lamps and fluorescent lamps, LEDs consume less energy. Most industrial facilities have large spaces and high ceilings, while previous technologies required high wattage to meet the required high lumen output. But today, high-efficiency LED solutions can provide the required light output with less than half the energy of traditional lighting.
2. Reduce maintenance costs. LEDs can currently provide 4 times longer service life than traditional lighting, and the lumen maintenance rate has also been improved. In this way, the maintenance costs related to the replacement of lamps are reduced, and a safer and brighter environment is created.
3. Controllable lighting. Unlike HID and other technologies, LED is essentially compatible with control, and achieves greater energy-saving effects through daylight adjustment control.
What factors need to be considered before factory lighting decides to use LEDs?
1. Check the shape and lumen output of the current lighting equipment. In most cases, installing LED lamps with similar appearance to previous lamps can shorten installation time and speed up return on investment.
2. The number of lumens should be considered less. Compared with lamps using traditional technology, the optical performance of LED lamps is often improved. In some applications, some lamps require less lumens than existing lamps to achieve the desired light level.
3. Understand the regulations. When replacing traditional lamps, local regulations may require energy saving and increased lighting control. In addition, many places will provide some incentives to offset some initial costs.
