The Big Push in Lighting Technology

Title

High Efficiency

The luminous efficiency of a light source is the ratio between the luminous flux and the input power. This is expressed in lumens/Watt. Currently, LED’s have a luminous efficacy up to 155 lm/W compared to> 13 lm/W for incandescent lamps, 16lm/W for halogen, 50 lm/W fluorescent.

No UV or IR rays

LEDs do not emit UV and IR rays, ensuring maximum safety for the health of humans and animals, even after prolonged exposure.

High Color Rendering Index

Leds have a color rendering index of up to 95. The Color Rendering Index(CRI), is a measurement of the accuracy of a light source in rendering different colors when compared to a reference light source with the same correlated color temperature. It generally ranges from 0 for a source like a low-pressure sodium vapor lamp, which is monochromatic, to 100, for a source like an incandescent light bulb, which emits essentially blackbody radiation. The higher the CRI, the better the visual perception of colors. CRI is related to color temperature, in that the CRI measures for a pair of light sources can only be compared if they have the same color temperature. The highest attainable CRI is 100. Lamps with CRIs above 70 are typically used in office and living environments. A standard "cold white" fluorescent lamp will have a CRI around 62.
