HIGH EFFICIENCY - converts electricity directly into light, resulting in lower heat generation, cooler fittings and efficacies exceeding that of incandescent and many fluorescent sources.
COOL SAFE LIGHT - no heat in the form of infra-red radiation and the absence of damaging UV results in cooler fittings and cooler, safer light, making LEDs the ideal form of lighting when conventional sources would cause a problem (eg. task lighting, museum cabinet lighting or food lighting).
LOW POWER CONSUMPTION - results in significant energy savings that often drives the installation of LED-based systems.
RELIABLE - high operating life with no routine maintenance normally required, leads to significant costs savings in lamp replacement and associated labour costs.
RUGGED - high resistance to shock and vibration.
SAFE - low voltage operation makes LEDs safe for wet areas
SMALL - compact construction allows for miniaturisation and discreet light fittings.
EXCELLENT LIGHT CONTROL - well defined light emission characteristics and purpose-designed collimator lenses enable precise shaping and control of beam spread, achieving efficiencies of around 90%.
FAST - solid-state technology provides instantaneous 'turn-on' and 'turn-off' for strobing and chasing effects. Ideally suited to applications requiring frequent switching with no detriment to operating life.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY - LEDs do not contain mercury.
