WHY LEDs FAIL?
The Light Emitting Diode (LED) is the light source of the future, here today. While universally regarded as being generally indestructible in view of its long life and vibration-resistant construction, the LED is still essentially an electronic component (a diode which emits light as a by-product), and is liable to fail due to various reasons if certain design considerations are not taken into account.
WHY 5mm, 4-LED AND SMD SMALL-CHIP EPOXY-ENCAPSULATED LEDs ARE INAPPROPRIATE FOR HIGH POWER SOLID-STATE LIGHTING?
Small-Chip Low-power LEDs (5mm, 4-leg and SMD packages) are NOT designed for use in illumination applications Some suppliers are providing LED lights with 5mm (or 3mm, 4-leg or SMD) small-chip (low-power) epoxy-encapsulated LEDs, which were initially developed for indication use.
TECHNICAL FEATURES OF BINAY INDUSTRIAL SERIES LED MODULES
The BINAY INDUSTRIAL SERIES LED Module pilot light is particularly designed for use in industrial environments, and incorporates the benefits gained from Binay’s 20-year experience in LED semiconductor technology.
NATURAL LIGHT OUTPUT DEGRADATION OF LIGHT EMITTING DIODES AND THE IMPLICATION ON THE OPERATIONAL LIFETIME OF LED-BASED PRODUCTS
The operational life on any LED-based product is dependent on the inherent LED characteristic of natural intensity degradation over its lifetime.
