LED landscape lights unique advantages
Landscape lighting refers to the outdoor lighting project with both lighting function and artistic decoration and beautification function. Landscape lighting can be divided into road lighting, garden square lighting, architectural lighting.
Landscape lighting usually covers a wide range of categories, which requires overall planning and consideration of key nodes, such as small scenes, buildings and other individual key lighting. Therefore, lighting methods are diverse and lighting selection is complex, which requires high requirements on the overall ability of lighting designers.
LED landscape lighting has the following advantages:
1. The light source of LED landscape lamp is light in structure and small in volume, which can adapt to various sizes and Spaces, and has the characteristics of impact resistance, shock resistance and not easy to be broken.
2. Compared with incandescent lamp and fluorescent lamp, LED landscape lamp consumes very little electricity under the same lighting effect, which has great energy saving effect and strong market competitiveness.
3. LED landscape lamp has the characteristics of pure color, rich, arbitrary change, and its flexibility is very good, can form a variety of point, line, surface, ball shape, with unparalleled decorative.
4. LED landscape lights have a long service life and do not need frequent maintenance. With good control and rich and varied colors, they are suitable for urban night lighting.
LED used in landscape lighting unique advantages
Brighter, better light
The main functions of landscape lighting are security and decoration. Leds are considered to be the brightest form of light, achieving 170-180 lumens per watt and providing reliable light.
In addition to this feature, leds are less likely to explode or burn out in the light source in the case of overheating or short circuits.
Leds emit no infrared or ultraviolet radiation and are completely free of mercury. In addition, these lights comply with ROHS standards, which means that leds do not contain any dangerous substances, such as cadmium and mercury. In contrast, metal-halide lamps contain high levels of cadmium and emit ultraviolet light, while fluorescent lamps contain mercury. Since landscape lights are installed near water or trees in nature, leds are preferred.
Low maintenance cost
The presence of a light source in a backyard light is important because the location of the light is usually in a vulnerable area. For example, underwater lights in swimming pools are difficult to replace because the pool has to be emptied if the lights are to be replaced. Another example is floodlights, which require a crane to restore if something goes wrong. In most cases, the cost of replacing the lights far exceeds the cost of lighting.
Low voltage operation
The function voltage of LED is lower than 4V DC. In order to make it run on 220V, we usually use switch power supply to lower the voltage, so as to convert AC to DC. If it is any lamp that contacts with water directly, it is recommended to run under lower voltage, lest the accident happens when current flows out.
When it comes to traditional light sources, we need to use specific inverter circuits to increase the voltage and convert it to alternating current. This reduces the safety and life of lamps, while increasing the cost of lamps. In addition, LED is a safer choice, running at low voltage and very safe in operation.
