What is LED lighting?

Answer:

LED stands for Light Emitting Diode, and is seen as the lighting system of the future. This type of lighting can be seen as the successor to incandescents. Incandescents have the disadvantage that the filament burns out after a certain period of time. For LEDs this is not the case, because these lamps don’t use filaments but convert electricity directly into lighting. This ensures much less power is needed in order to create lighting.

 The advantages of LED in a glance:

  • Very economical with power: a lot of light for less energy.
  • An extremely long product life (20.000 – 100.000 hours).
  • Resistant to vibration because it does not make use of the sensitive filament.
  • Can handle temperature differences.
  • Different lenses can be used to adjust the lighting beam.

 
The disadvantages of LED in a glance (especially with older LEDs):

  • Low light output.
  • The lighting colour tends to be blue.
