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.

HEAT DISSIPATION on LED Lights

HEAT DISSIPATION on LED Lights

One of the most telling aspects to a LED bulb when it comes to quality is how well the bulb dissipates heat.

A common misconception is that LED bulbs don’t get warm, however this just isn’t the case. They don’t get nearly as hot as incandescent bulbs, but since power goes into the LEDs, they do produce heat and this must be drawn away from the LEDs.

Unfortunately LEDs can’t radiate this heat away in the same way as an incandescent bulb – instead, the heat needs to be drawn away from the LEDs by a heat sink normally located in the bottom of the bulb. The heat sink absorbs the heat produced and then dissipates into the surrounding environment.

If the heat sink doesn’t fulfil its job correctly, the LED will overheat and most likely burn out. So a badly designed heat sink will be detrimental to the lifespan of the LED bulb, and efficient thermal management is really important to ensure that the LED bulbs last as promised!

There are lots of different designs for heat sinks, which is why the appearance of LED bulbs changes so much between brands. You may be familiar with the metal fins on some LEDs – higher end LEDs will have aluminium fins or ceramic heat sinks. The ceramic fins in many cases can be more effective than any metal heat sink, since they possess lots of tiny pores, which provide an even greater surface area to dissipate the heat from compared to metals. Ceramic heat sinks have a very low thermal capacity, but the highest surface area to maximise heat loss into the surrounding environment.

So in our experience better LED bulbs will utilise ceramics or aluminium, but this alone does not make them a market leader!
