Why LED light bulbs cost so much

Posted on Updated on

http://youtu.be/Ym0P7Exk8MA   LED into a light bulb requires the integration of some pretty sophisticated technologies.

  • Components on the circuit board is often assembled by hand because its still too complicated for factory machines
  • The actual LED wafer can cost as much as £5 a unit
  • The brightest LEDs generate blue light. So in order to get the more natural white glow, manufacturers typically  coat the bulb with yellow phosphor, an expensive rare earth metal compound imported from China
  • LEDs additionally require the use of drivers to convert energy into electrical current. This component alone can cost up to £3
  • Although LEDs burn cooler than Edison bulbs, they still need a conducting material to dissipate the heat. The aluminum used to accomplish this can cost as much as £2

Some newer technologies that bulb-makers are hope will help bring down the cost in due time, some of which include:

  • Using larger wafers that would allow LEDs to be built.
  • The production of green LEDs that when mixed with red and blue ones create white light.
  • Smaller heat sinks that require less aluminum.

LED Lamps will significantly reduce your carbon footprint

Posted on Updated on

LED Lamps will significantly reduce your carbon footprint because they use far less electricity which creates large amounts of CO2 in its production. LED Lamps do not have any hazardous substances like the mercury in CFLs and accordingly can be easily disposed of at the end of their life but as they last over 30 times longer than a traditional light Lamp they only create a fraction of the landfill.

What is the power consumption of LED High Bay Light compare to Mercury High Bay Light?

Posted on Updated on

What is the power consumption of tForce Commercial LED High Bay Light compare to Traditional Mercury High Bay Light?
The tForce Commercial LED High Bay Light 180W saves from 65% to 75% energy compared to Traditional Mercury High Bay Light. Each tForce Commercial LED High Bay Light 180W uses 180W Osram-Oslon Square (http://www.osram-os.com/osram_os/en/products/product-promotions/led-for-general-lighting/oslon-square/index.jsp) LED coupled with a high efficiency Philips transformer which consumes an additional 20w, therefore 200W in total. Each traditional 400W Mercury High Bay Light uses 400W globe coupled with a transformer that consumes an additional 50W, therefore 450W in total. tForce LED High Bay Light has high Power factor 0.95 compare to traditional Mercury High Bay Light is only 0.60. LED High Bay Light has instant Startup advantage compare to the Mercury High Bay needs stabilising 6-15 minutes. tForce Osram LED High Bay has 50,000+ hours Life Span, but the Mercury High Bay Light has only around 8,000 hours Life Span.The tForce Commercial LED High Bay Light 180W adopts new heat dissipation design to ensure that the LED bulbs last as promised. The heat fins and heat conducting copper system to dissipate the heat from compared to metals such as Aluminium.The tForce Commercial Osram LED High Bay Light, Superbright and Long-Lasting, can saves up to 80% of power costs. It can use install up to 15m Ceilling Height.
