What is LED lighting?
LEDs, or light-emitting diodes, are semiconductor devices that convert electricity into light. This type of lighting represents the latest advance in energy efficient lighting, reducing the carbon footprint by as much as 70% in environments that previously used conventional lighting technology.
In addition to these considerable energy savings and environmental benefits, LED lighting offers:
- A low-maintenance solution
- Enhanced durability and safety, utilising semiconductor material instead of a filament or neon gas to make them much sturdier than traditional incandescent light bulbs or fluorescent tubes
- A range of vivid colours
As a result of these advantages, there has been a substantial move towards accelerated LED adoption both domestically and commercially. This has increased demand for industrial connection solutions to help implement this newer lighting technology, especially in areas such as:
- The marine sector
- Hazardous working areas
- General architectural applications
Northern Connectors recently helped a supermarket save hundreds of thousands of pounds on their energy bills with a project that saw them replace existing cross-aisle lighting with LED equivalents, further underlining the significant benefits that LED lighting can offer in everyday applications.
The role that connectors play
Connectors play an important role in many different lighting applications involving LEDs, including the following:
- LED downlights
- Solar-powered LED lights - these offer the capability of getting power from sunlight, making them ideal for use in places where power lines are not available.
- LED traffic lights - these are becoming increasingly popular in traffic signal applications due to their high efficiency, low power consumption and long life
- RGB LED colour mixing
- MR16 LED lamp - widely used in shops, decorative lighting and other applications. They compare favourably to traditional halogen MR16 lamps, which are limited by their high power consumption and heat generation, along with low efficiency
- Smart LED mining lamp - due to potentially hazardous conditions in mining, an effective monitoring system is vital for ensuring the safety of miners. LEDs are becoming an increasingly popular method of lighting in mining
- High bay lighting - LED lighting can deliver significant savings on control circuitry, particularly in larger buildings where the control cables would otherwise need to be long enough to reach the operator
- LED street lighting - high-power LEDs have a number of advantages, including efficiency, power saving and cold start. The long life of LEDs means the cost of maintenance is reduced considerably
