What is LED?
Light Emitting diode is a junction of two semiconductor material. When electricity is applied, it emits the light as per characteristics of material. Led range covers from low to high wattage, which can be used for indication to general lighting.
Why LED?
• No Mercury, IR, UV
• Controllable brightness & intensity
• Design flexibility
• Cool light
• Small size
• Long life
• Robust & vibration proof
• Non toxic
• Instant start
• No drastic failure
Why is LED called Green lighting?
The green lighting means lights are energy efficient, long life, environmental friendly (non toxic) and increased safety. LEDs have above-mentioned characteristics, so we call LEDs as green lighting. AASH CUBE is contributing to environmental protection by investing in green lighting technology.
How is LED lighting different from conventional lighting?
Incandescent lamps emit light by filament heating at high temperature. Due to that its 90% electricity is used in heat conversion. A fluorescent lamp produces ultraviolet light when electricity is passed through a mercury vapor, causing the phosphor coating inside the fluorescent tube to glow or fluoresce. Incandescent lamps have short lifetimes (around 1,000 hours) due to the high temperatures of the filaments, while fluorescent lamps have moderate lifetimes (around 10,000 hours) that are limited by the electrodes for the discharge. LEDs, on the other hand, use semiconductors that are more efficient, more rugged, more durable, and can be controlled (for example, dimmed) more easily. LEDs have lifetimes up to 50,000 hours and as technology is maturing the life span of LED is also increasing.
