Features, Applications and Performance Requirements of LED Lighting Strips

Do you know the LED lighting strip? The LED lighting strip is made up of small LED lamp beads, which can be seen everywhere in our lives. Because the LED lighting strip has many advantages and characteristics, its application is very wide. Next, HANRON Lighting will give you an introduction to its features and scope of application and what needs to be considered for the performance of the LED lighting strip?

1. What are the characteristics and applications of LED lighting strip?

(1) Unlike ordinary lamps, the LED lighting strip will not produce ultraviolet rays during use, which can cause harm to the human body. It does not produce ultraviolet rays during use and it is a very environmentally friendly lamp.

(2) The LED lighting strip is very energy-saving. It can save more than 60% of the electric energy than ordinary fluorescent tubes, save unnecessary losses, and effectively save valuable energy.

(3) The brightness of the LED lighting strip is very soft, comfortable and not dazzling.

(4) The LED lighting strip uses a cold light source, and the voltage is relatively low, so it will not become very hot after a period of time like ordinary light tubes, and it is very safe to use.

The application of LED lighting strips is very wide. It can decorate our cars, rooms, billboards, houses, etc., which saves electricity and is safe.

Because LED lighting strips have the above characteristics and advantages, they are also widely used in all walks of life. For example, take the commercial showcases we see in shopping malls. Commercial showcases are used to display high-end products, such as cosmetics, Jewelry, famous watches, etc., so the lamps decorated on the showcase must be beautiful and safe, and can fully set off the product. The luminosity, softness and low-voltage safety characteristics of the LED lighting strip are fully in line with the demand for commercial-use showcases, so it can perfectly set off the products.

2. What issues need to be considered for the performance of LED lighting strips?

(1) Reliability and service life

The expected service life of LED lighting strip is 50,000 hours, compared with 20,000 hours for halogen tungsten lamps and 3,000 hours for tungsten incandescent lamps. Compared with the incandescent lamp, the structure of the LED lighting strip is sturdy, not easily affected by vibration, and the light output brightness will not decrease significantly during use.

Lighting solutions based on multiple LEDs also have the benefit of "redundancy", which means that even if one LED fails, the lighting device can still be used. The correct use of LEDs (especially the correct control of the temperature of the LED) can effectively extend the life expectancy of the LED. On the contrary, if the temperature is too high, the LED is easily damaged. The application of LEDs in automotive lighting also involves many legal definitions. Most countries have clear definitions for brake lights or headlight failures: lights on or off.

(2) Efficiency/lumens per watt

Compared with standard incandescent lamps, LED lighting strips can produce more light output per unit of electrical energy consumed. But when compared with halogen lamps, the advantages of the actual light output of LEDs are not obvious. The latest LEDs have excellent lumens per watt values, but some values are obtained under optimized conditions, and are usually not obtained under the highest output conditions. Generally speaking, when the current of the LED increases, the light output does not increase linearly. Therefore, even if the LED outputs x lumens at 0.5A current, it will not output 2x lumens at 1.0A current.
