Whether it’s LED down lights, strip lights, flood lights, Bayonet, Edison screw all the way to high bays, Alectric has the solution for you.
Alectric offers flawless LED Lighting installation in Adelaide.
Good quality LED not only save you power, but they also last longer saving you additional costs in replacement lamps. LEDs can use as little as a quarter of the power of their equivalent light source, saving you thousands on your power bills.
From domestic household, just changing your halogen down lights to LEDs, flood lights and general light fittings it can save you plenty off your power bill, as well as saving you time and money in replacing globes, many LED globes have life spans over 50,000hrs.
LED don’t get as hot as halogens, so eliminating the need for heat shrouds and the potential of fires.
Do you own or rent a factory with old mercury vapour or metal halide high bays? Do you own an office with Fluro tubes?
Alectric can replace these fittings with LED equivalents saving you thousands on your power bill, and labour cost of replacing lamps. Average commercial buildings lighting bill represents approximately 30% of the total bill, imagine if you could take up to 75% off this. Alectric can provide a solution, with payback periods on investment as low as 2 years.
LEDs produce less heat so over summer can also save you money on your cooling bills.
They require less space (or none in some cases) to the insulation, meaning your house will remain cooler in summer and warmer in winter.
Think light emitting diodes (LEDs) are just for flashlights and cell phone displays? Think again. Once relegated to humble indicator lights in electronic devices.
First let’s take a look at the traditional light bulb or “lamp” as it’s called by the industry.
The light in most homes is produced by incandescent sources. The bulb structure is produced when hot glass is blown into molds and then cooled and coated with diffusing material. Placed inside the bulb is a very thin and fragile, coiled tungsten filament (.0017 inches thick). For the bulb to produce light an electric current is passed through a conductor and the tungsten is heated to the point at which it gives off light. Unfortunately, these bulbs, like many of their relatives, are not very energy efficient; roughly 10% of the energy is used to make visible light.
The structure of the LED light is completely different than that of the light bulb. Amazingly, the LED has a simple and strong structure. The beauty of the structure is that it is designed to be versatile, allowing for assembly into many different shapes. The light-emitting semiconductor material is what determines the LED’s color.
As indicated by its name, the LED is a diode that emits light. A diode is a device that allows current to flow in only one direction. Almost any two conductive materials will form a diode when placed in contact with each other. When electricity is passed through the diode the atoms in one material (within the semiconductor chip) are excited to a higher energy level. The atoms in that first material have too much energy and need to release that energy. The energy is then released as the atoms shed electrons to the other material within the chip. During this energy release light is created. The color of the light from the LED is a function of the ingredients (materials) and recipes (processes) that make up the chip.
LED lights have a variety of advantages over other light sources:
- High-levels of brightness and intensity
- Low-voltage and current requirements
- Low radiated heat
- High reliability (resistant to shock and vibration)
- No UV Rays
- Long source life
- Can be easily controlled and programmed
Over the past decade, LED technology has advanced at light speed. In the past, lack of colors and the low intensity made LEDs useful only as indicator lights. As manufacturing methods and technology improved, the LED quickly found homes in more and more applications. These days, the LED is becoming a preferred light source for much more than simple indicators. In fact, today Philips illuminates the world’s largest spherical building (Globen arena), the world’s largest observation wheel (Singapore Flyer), and the world’s tallest free-standing tower (CN Tower) with LED lights!
LED light sources are also gaining popularity due to the growing energy conservation movement. According to the U.S. Department Energy, no other lighting technology offers as much potential to save energy and enhance the quality of our building environments.
Today is an exciting time for those working closely with LED lighting systems, which allow completely new uses of light.
Far surpassing the simple enclosure of LEDs on a circuit board, Philips excels in all the critical areas that are vital to high-performing LED lighting systems – from thermal management, binning and optics to high-efficiency LED drivers and advanced power components. We have also developed important proprietary technologies to reduce the cost and complexity of LED lighting control, operation and installation – in turn accelerating market adoption.
Though it’s been shown to affect the way people live, work, and feel, light has long been considered an afterthought. Philips strives to change that notion, advancing LED lighting technology to create experiences, inspire new applications, and even mitigate strain on our world’s resources.
