LED Products and Solutions What is LED?
Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are solid-state lighting components with no moving, fragile parts. LEDs, which may last for decades, are much more energy efficient than light bulbs, depending on the application. In television sets, vacuum tubes were replaced with solid-state components; similarly the last remaining vacuum tube light bulbs are now being replaced by solid-state components.
Just picture a grain of sand emitting a bright light - usually red, amber, green or blue- when an electrical current is applied. Basically that's an LED. While the manufacturing process to develop an LED is somewhat complex, the principle is rather simple.
Long Useful Life
70,000 Hours / 10 years have been reported
Compared to a conventional fluorescent lamp, it's up to 80 percent more efficient
As much as 5 times brighter than traditional lights
High Endurance & Shock Resistant
LEDs have solid state components and are not fragile due to the absence of the filament and glass tube
It generates less CO2 because it consumes less power
