Specifying LED Solutions Whitepaper
Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting is becoming increasingly popular as conventional lighting is phased out. The lower power consumption, inexpensive operation costs, robustness and longer lifespans of LEDs makes them an attractive alternative to incandescent lights. However, the benefits of LEDs are significantly reduced if the components within the fixture such as printed circuit boards (PCB), LED drivers and LED light engines are not specifically designed for an equally long lifespan.
Selecting the wrong LED solution can lead to ongoing issues with your lighting portfolio, it is therefore essential to get selection correct at the first attempt. In recent years lighting industry experts have expressed concerns about the effectiveness of LED lighting and the associated components within fixtures. While most agree that several issues such as efficacy, failure rates, flicker and color temperature need to be addressed, consensus dissolves around how to solve them. In this whitepaper we outline some of the critical aspects to address and explain how Harvard Technology is leading the way in tackling them.
The whitepaper provides a summary of:
- An overview of LED solutions
- Important considerations from a technical standpoint when selecting an LED solution
- The LED solutions available to meet requirements and considerations
The overall goal of the whitepaper is to offer a comprehensive guide to selecting a complete LED solution, including LED, LED light engines, LED drivers and the factors to consider when selecting a component.
