With growing concerns about energy efficiency and the health of the environment, many homes have been switching out their old lighting fixtures for more effective LED (Light Emitting Diode) fixtures. This relatively new technology uses far less energy to give much brighter and efficient light. This article is going to point out a few benefits of LED's themselves, and also why Hafele Loox LED products are superior to the competition.
Advantages of LED's
LED lights have an extremely long service life of up to 25 years or more than 40,000 to 50,000 hours.
LED’s have an extremely small and robust design. This makes handling easier during furniture construction and transport.
Low Heat Generation
Because of their extremely low power consumption, LED lights generate hardly any heat. This means that LED lighting systems are particularly suitable for displays.
LED lights use an impressive 90 percent less power than conventional light bulbs! This means that they can be used to implement modern lighting scenarios in furniture, and still be in line with the energy saving trend.
Modern LED lights are bright and have a saturated light color. They achieve full brightness as soon as they are switched on. LED furniture lighting therefore has a lasting effect at the push of a button.
Rich in Variants
LED lights are available in different colours, and can be designed as color changing lights. This allows the light color to be coordinated with furniture contents such as exhibits in the best possible way.
Loox LED Technology
The Loox LED technology incorporates different power systems. A system is decided on by choosing the driver or a particular light. The choice of system is an important decision, because the driver that is selected can only be combined with lights from the same system.
Spoiled for choice in the 12V system
The LED lights are voltage-controlled and connected in parallel in the 12V system. The plugs on the driver can be freely allocated. 12V lights are the most widespread at present.
Powerful 24V system
Technically speaking, the 24V system is identical to the 12V system, but has a considerably higher power level. 24V lights can therefore be used when extremely bright lights are required.
Spotlights in the 350 mA system
The LED lights in the 350 mA system are current-controlled and connected in series. This means that each plug has to be either occupied or bypassed. 350 mA lights provide extremely high light power and are particularly suitable for spotlighting.
