Why choose LED ?

LED lamps are democratizing the market for industrial lighting

LED technology continues to progress: LED performance doubling every 2 years and prices fell by 20% each year.

Advantages :


  • A lifetime unmatched: the life of LED lamps is much higher than that of other technologies: up to 100 000 hours (laboratory) 40 000 h on the market (several decades of use ) against 1000 hours for incandescent lamps, 2,000 hours for halogen lamps and 10,000 hours for fluorescent lamps. Thus, the purchase and replacement of an LED lamp are less frequent, which improves the profitability of the investment.
  • Energy efficient with significant potential for growth if an isolated LED displays very energy efficient (150 lm / W and up to 220 lm / W for the best performing), an LED lamp has an efficiency of between 40 and 80 lumens per watt. This performance decrease is notably due to the heat produced by the diodes side by side in the lamp. Thus, LED lamps currently marketed typically have a much higher energy efficiency conventional lamps: 70 lumen / W fluorescent and only 16 lumen / W for incandescent lamps. Moreover, technological developments should improve the efficiency of LED lamps for the general public by carrying around 100 lm / W. The LED “super bright” are already in the laboratory have an energy efficiency of up to 300 lm / W! This means that eventually we will have lights that consume less than 4 watts and that light as an incandescent lamp of 75 watts.
  • Instant maximum lighting: LED bulbs reach a maximum level of brightness from the ignition. Indeed, the LED light sources admit ignition cycles and frequent extinction. They instantly emit the desired light output, without revving, which may be advantageous for specific applications such as passageways.
  • Compact bulbs: compact LED makes them very interesting for replacement sources embedded in false ceilings or difficult access such as large heights (cranes, platforms, warehouses, streetlights). LED modules directly implemented in a luminaire which can integrate an electronic control, facilitate the implementation of the lighting management solutions such as detecting the presence or the variation in function of the daylight.

The LEDs operate at very low voltage and even under low temperatures, which can be an advantage for electrical safety in the building. With a temperature rise of only 32 ° C, LEDs do not heat up as much as incandescent lamps (150 ° C) and fluorescent lamps (70 ° C). They are insensitive to shock, making them more robust than other lighting sources. The LED color can be used for lighting effects without filter use. Finally, LEDs contain no mercury and are largely recycled as non hazardous waste (unlike fluorescent lamps).
