Discover the latest LED technology

 

With the latest LED technology there are a lot of possibilities. Let us explain what possibilities this technology brings us.

A LED lamp is a light-emitting diode (LED) product which is assembled into a lamp for use in lighting fixtures. LED lamps are becoming more and more popular. LEDs have many advantages over incandescent light sources, including a lower energy consumption, a longer lifetime, improved physical robustness, a smaller size and faster switching.


Get the retro look with LED bulbs

Filament LED lamps are lamps that look like traditional incandescent lamps but are based on filament LED technology. These lamps bring the best of incandescent and LED together.

These energy efficient retro LED lamps replace the traditional incandescent and halogen light sources with all the benefits of LED technology and more. Additionally, dimmable light sources are completely made of glass to ensure an ultra-wide, attractive and optimum light distribution.

The benefits of LED

The retro filament LED lamps delivers beautiful, decorative warm white light. It’s the perfect decorative addition for bringing that warm feeling to any occasions. Another big advantage is the energy saving up to 90% which it create a quick payback period. The investment of an HQ retro LED lamp is earned back within one year.

Lifetime

Compared to an incandescent bulb (1.000 hours) and energy saving lamp (10.000 hours) a LED lamp has a lifetime of approximately 50.000 hours. Besides that, also the reliability of LED lights has increased enormously over the last few years. Thanks to the fact that LED lamps are vibration and shock resistant the percentage of LED lights that fail prematurely is minimal nowadays.

Light output

The light output, also known as light current, is measured in lumens. The higher the lumen value, the higher the light output. For most people wattage is a more familiar indication for light output than lumen, but measuring light output by lumen is a more precise and a better to compare different light outputs than the wattage. For LED lights lumen is the official measurement and manufactures are also required to communicate these values on the packaging of LED lights.

The table below shows a comparison of light output between different type of lamps:

 

Lumens

Energy saving lamp

Incandescent bulb

Halogen lamp

200 lm 2 W 5 W 25 W  
300 lm 3 W     28 W
400 lm 6 W 8 W 40 W  
600 lm   11 W   42 W
700 lm   13 W 60 W  
900 lm 10 W 16 W 75 W  
1300 lm   22 W 100 W 70W

As you can see, with LEDs, the amount of wattage you'll need varies for each lumen rating. This is because some LED brands have created bulbs that offer more lumens for less wattage

 

Colour temperature

The colour temperature of a light source is expressed in kelvins. The higher the kelvin value, the cooler the colour of the light source. If you want to create a warm atmosphere in an area, you should use a LED light with a lower colour temperature.

Colour temperature

< 2700 Extra warm white
2700 - 3200 Warm white
5000 Neutral white
8000 Cool white

 


Types of fittings

LED lights are manufactured with different kind of fittings. These fittings are the same as the fittings of traditional light bulbs. The most commonly used fittings are a large fitting (E27) and a small fitting (E14).Recessed spotlights are mostly sold with a bayonet catch (GU10).

Switch-on time and dimming

Another advantage of LED lights is that, in contrast to energy saving lamps, they give a full light output directly after switch-on. Previously LEDs could not be dimmed, but nowadays also dimmable LEDs are available.


LED for a sustainable future!

In brief, LED lighting supports sustainability in several different ways:

  1. Low energy consumption: LEDs use less energy than other types of light bulbs. This saves the consumer money and places less demand on our energy grid and less demand on the natural resources used to power that grid.
  2. Low heat: LEDs have a small amount of heat loss, thanks to their efficient design and lack of filament. Cooler bulbs are safer too, posing less of a fire hazard.
  3. No harmful materials used in construction: LED lights do not contain any harmful chemicals or materials
  4. Waste reduction: Since LEDs last so long (up to 20 years or more) and are more durable than other types of bulbs, fewer dead LED bulbs find their way into the trash.
  5. Recyclability: LEDs are made of recyclable materials.
