A Technological Breakthrough for the Lighting Industry. –LED supports the lighting industry as technically relevant and cutting-edge. The Need for an Alternate Lighting Technology
Eco-$mart LED Innovation through Technology The Nature of Light Emitting Diodes and SSL Technology –Solid state lighting (SSL) in a revolutionary platform. »Light is emitted from a semi-conductor (diode) as opposed to a vacuum or gas tube. »Cost effective yet high quality replacement for incandescent and fluorescent lamps. SSL –Recognized by the DOE as a solution to ecological pitfalls of incandescent and fluorescent lighting. –Allows for the grouping of LEDs to produce a unified beam. »High Durability - no filament to break. »Long Life Span - 25, ,000 hrs. »Flexible Application - small size LEDs can lead to unique lighting devices. »Low Heat Generation. What is LED?
Eco-$mart LED Innovation through Technology If you're thinking of using LEDs, but don't know where to begin, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has created a "frequently asked questions" guide to assist you. Some of the LED products available today are marketed as "energy-efficient," but actually have very low light output compared to typical light sources. The combination of high price and low light output may actually make them a poor replacement for current technology. It is important to compare new LED products to the most efficient conventional technology (such as fluorescent, incandescent, or metal halide) that could be used in your specific application. The following checklist will help you determine if an LED product is right for your application: Ask how many watts the product consumes and how many lumens of light it produces. Lumens per watt (lpw) is the commonly used measure of how efficiently a light source is converting electricity into useable light. For comparison, incandescent lamps typically produce lumens per watt of electric power. CFLs produce at least 50 lumens per watt. Currently available high-brightness LEDs can produce about lumens per watt. In task lighting applications, LEDs may be able to provide enough light on the task, even though the total lumens are less than comparable incandescent or fluorescent sources. Evaluate the cost. For comparison, a 75-watt incandescent light bulb typically produces about 1,000 lumens and costs less than $1. The problem is, it only lasts about 1,000 hours and only converts about 5% of the electricity it consumes into light (the rest is wasted as heat). A comparable CFL is 5 times more efficient, lasts 10,000 hours, and costs less than $5. So the conventional light sources cost around $1 per thousand lumens. Today's white LED products cost more than $50 per thousand lumens. Assess the need for unique LED features. In some applications, the extra durability that LEDs can provide is worth a higher purchase price. Outdoor pathway and step lighting is an example of a sensible application for today's white LEDs. They provide a small amount of light right where it's needed, and can be powered by solar cells, eliminating the need for running wire outdoors.. Check the color of white LEDs. If you've ever tried to match white paint, you know there are actually many shades of white. There is a similar issue with lighting. White light varies from "warm" or more yellow/gold in appearance, to ?cool? or more blue. Today's white LEDs are typically "cooler" and bluer, even compared to fluorescent sources. Do LEDs really last 50,000 hours? 100,000 hours? There is no simple answer to this question. Considering that 100,000 hours is more than 11 years of 24/7 operation, it's difficult to do life testing on these products! However, SSL researchers have developed ways to estimate LED life, based on shorter test periods. Unlike other light sources, LEDs don't typically "burn out;" they simply get dimmer over time. Although there is not yet an official industry standard defining "life" of an LED, the leading manufacturers report it as the point at which light output has reached 70% of initial light output. Using that definition, the best white LEDs have been found to have a useful life of around 35,000 hours (that's four years of continuous operation). LED lifetime is strongly dependent on appropriate electrical and thermal design of the fixture or system. While LEDs do not emit heat in the form of infrared radiation (IR), they do generate conductive heat that must be managed in order for the LED to maintain expected light output. Why is there such variation among available SSL products, in terms of efficacy and light output? There is currently a lack of consensus test procedures and performance standards for LEDs. The performance of traditional light sources (incandescent, fluorescent, HID) is determined by accepted test procedures that are followed industry wide. This allows comparison of products made by different manufacturers because they all have to test their products and report results in the same way. In many cases, test procedures will need to be revised to account for technical differences in the way LEDs operate, relative to traditional light sources. DOE is working with the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), the Next Generation Lighting Industry Alliance, and other industry and research organizations to begin developing the needed metrics, codes, and standards for SSL products. LED Evaluation
Eco-$mart LED Innovation through Technology Theres two main ways to get white light from LEDs –Combine light from red, green and blue colored LEDs. »This is the same way your television works. »White, formed this way, can be tuned to produce soft or daylight. –Utilize a blue LED with a phosphor coating. »Coating emits a yellow light when the blue light from the LED shines on it. »The mixture of blue and yellow light forms a white light. How is White LED Light Made?
Eco-$mart LED Innovation through Technology The color of an LED is a function of the material used to make the junction. There are two main flavors. –Iridium gallium nitride (InGaN) is used to make up the blue, white, true green, and UV types. –Aluminum gallium indium phosphide (AlGaInP) is used to make the red, yellow, and orange types. What makes an LED such a good colored light source? –When you specify colored light, LEDs cant be beat for efficiency –Highly efficient process involving wavelengths –LEDs have a significant advantage in Exit and Traffic Lights - 15% as opposed to 5% incandescent efficiency.
