Hi-Intensity LEDs for Motorcycles, RVs, Motorhomes, Boats, Golf Carts, ATVs, Cars and more!
Because of metamorphism , it is possible to have quite different spectra that appear white. However, the appearance of objects illuminated by that light may vary as the spectrum varies, this is the issue of Color rendition, quite separate from Color Temperature, where a really orange or cyan object could appear with the wrong color and much darker as the LED or phosphor does not emit the wavelength. The best color rendition CFL and LEDs use a mix of phosphors, resulting in less efficiency but better quality of light. Though halogen is more orange Color Temperature, it’s still the best easily available artificial light source in terms of color rendition.
AMERICAN ENERGY INDEPENDENCE: Reducing energy consumption is a cost-effective sibling” strategy to increasing domestic energy production and using clean tech renewable technologies like solar and wind. Buildings use about 40% of US energy, and lighting typically accounts for about 25% of the electricity. Since LEDs cut the energy consumption by 50% or more, changing the lights is a great way to help reach energy independence and reduce CO2 emissions along the way. Bobs SEO saves over 55% on the monthly electric bill since switching to LED lights in their corporate office in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Actually, the Philips bulb is an amazing thing. It looks like a cartoon, like someone stepped on a conventional bulb. It’s all plastic, looks and feels light and cheap, but just pumps out those lumens and fits in any fixture. It has become the default bulb around the house and will be around for a while; It has an estimated life of 22.8 years with average use.
LED elements tend to be small and can be placed with high density over flat or even-shaped substrates (PCBs etc.) so that bright and homogeneous sources that direct light from tightly controlled directions on inspected parts can be designed. This can often be obtained with small, low-cost lenses and diffusers, helping to achieve high light densities with control over lighting levels and homogeneity. LED sources can be shaped in several configurations (spot lights for reflective illumination; ring lights for coaxial illumination; back lights for contour illumination; linear assemblies; flat, large format panels; dome sources for diffused, omnidirectional illumination).
Efficient lighting is needed for sustainable architecture In 2009, US Department of Energy testing results on LED lamps showed an average efficacy of 35 lm/W, below that of typical CFLs , and as low as 9 lm/W, worse than standard incandescent bulbs. A typical 13-watt LED lamp emitted 450 to 650 lumens, 174 which is equivalent to a standard 40-watt incandescent bulb.
