Why do you choose LED lights for Street Lighting?

Sep. 08, 2020

With the rapid development of technology, people's demand for smart cities is also constantly developing. Street lighting is an important part of the city. Most of the traditional street lamps use high-pressure sodium lamps. The high-pressure sodium lamp emits 360-degree light, and the shortcoming of light loss causes a huge waste of energy. At present, the global environment is deteriorating, and each ball is vigorously developing green and environmentally friendly energy. With the rapid growth of the economy, there is a serious shortage of power supply, and energy conservation is the first problem that needs to be solved. Therefore, high efficiency, energy saving, long life, high color rendering index, and environmental protection have become the selection conditions for street lighting. Lamps that meet these requirements can be of great significance for urban lighting energy conservation.

Obviously, what can meet these conditions is the new generation of LED lighting, LED street lights with directional illumination, low power consumption, good drive characteristics, instant start, high seismic resistance, long service life, and environmental protection. Good choice. In terms of color rendering, the LED street light can reach 90, and the color temperature can be selected as 3000-6500K as needed. In the light effect, the LED road lighting effect can reach 160lm/w, and the highest pressure sodium lamp is only 100 lm/W; the LED street lamp is applicable to a wide range, it can be applied, trunk road, secondary trunk road, branch road, factory , school, garden, square, courtyard and other road lighting.


The reasons for choosing LED street lights for street lighting are as follows:


1.Directional lighting

The led street light has a relatively concentrated light-emitting position, and a better design is made on the uniform light, and the point light source is expanded as a surface light source as much as possible to improve the comfort of the eye. And the directionality of the LED light illumination makes the LED light not cause light loss, and its light output is larger than other street lamps. Therefore, low-power LED street lights can replace high-power traditional street lights. For example, a 100W LED street light can replace a high pressure sodium lamp of 200 or more.


2. Less energy consumption

Compared with ordinary high-pressure sodium (HPS) lamps, LED street lamps consume 40-80% less power. LED lamps are seven times more energy efficient than incandescent lamps and twice as expensive as fluorescent lamps.


3. Long life

The life of LED street lights is three to eight times longer than traditional street lights. This results in less costly replacement of the lamp itself and less work to replace the lamp. It can save a lot of cost by itself. Also, during the life of the LED lamp, brightness loss or lumen loss can still maintain 70% brightness during the lifetime. Traditional lamps only maintain about 30% brightness at the end of their life. Therefore, LEDs not only have a longer life than conventional bulbs, but also maintain longer brightness than other bulbs. Longer service life reduces maintenance costs.


4. Realize intelligent lighting

The timely opening and closing characteristics of the LED street light enable the LED street light to be configured with a dawn-sensing sensor at dusk. The lighting can be automatically turned on and off as the ambient light is different.


5. Environmental protection

LED street lights do not produce harmful substances, are green light sources, have no light pollution, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, make the air fresh, and protect the urban environment.


6. Light naturally

The color temperature can choose 3500K-6500K LED street light is very close to daylight, natural yellow light than sodium lamp. LED street lights also do not emit UV or IR radiation. The color rendering index is >70, which is very clear and bright.


The only disadvantage of led street lights compared to other light sources is that the initial investment is large, but the operating cost is very low. According to the applicable time, the investment cost can be recovered in two years.


Road lighting is closely related to people's production and life. With the acceleration of urbanization in China, LED street lights have directional illumination, low power consumption, good driving characteristics, fast response, high seismic capacity, long service life, and green environmental protection. Entering people's vision has become the new generation of energy-saving light source that has the advantage of replacing traditional light source. Therefore, LED street light will become the best choice for energy-saving renovation of road lighting.


Since the launch of LED outdoor road lighting products in 2010, Lampshining has continuously increased the development of LED lighting products, and has formed a series of product lines in LED street lighting products. At the same time, it can give corresponding road lighting solutions. It is a comprehensive enterprise integrating high-power LED outdoor lighting and intelligent product development, production and sales. Welcome to the message consultation.
