What is an LED?

Simply put, an LED, or Light Emitting Diode, is a diode that is a semiconductor device that is chip-mounted in a reflector cup and held in place by a milled steel frame connected to a pair of electrical wires. When current flows across the junction of the two different materials, light is produced from within the solid crystal chip.

Why LED?

LEDs provide a longevity that is up to 20 times that of standard incandescent lamps, translating to low maintenance. LEDs are solid-state devices, meaning no moving parts, glass or filaments to break. LEDs are small in size and resistant to vibration or shock. LEDs contain no mercury and are environmentally friendly. LEDs are more efficient, using up to 90% less energy than other light sources based on watts.

Save the environment and your wallet by choosing LED products

How is LED Eco-Friendly?

  • Anything that uses traditional energy (electricity) automatically produces greenhouse gases which contribute to global warming. Energy-saving LED lights use less energy to produce the same light output, which means you not only save money on your Hydro bill, but also do your part for the environment.
  • LED lights have a lifetime that is up to 10 times longer than traditional lights. This allows you to replace LEDs less frequently than traditional lights, meaning you save money and reduce your light disposal and waste.

Top Concerns

Understanding Lighting Levels for LED
  • What LED products replace traditional lighting products

Control

  • How do I dim LED Lighting Products

Cost

  • Understanding total cost of ownership

Aesthetics

  • Moving away from the traditional fixture-design to the modern LED fixture-design

Our Solutions

Trained EBH staff in LED products
  • Our staff will guide you through replacing traditional lighting products with LED products to ensure existing lighting levels are comparable or exceeded.

Higher cost LED products are actually less expensive over time versus traditional products
  • Understanding total cost of ownership is key when considering LED products. Initially LEDs are more expensive but through efficiency, it will be less expensive to run over time than traditional products. Further, the life of LED products is 10x longer compared to traditional products.

Does standard lighting control work with LED lighting?
  • Small amount of LED sources can be controlled with existing triac dimmers, but most integrated LED products require different forms of dimming to be able to control. Talk to your EBH representative about what products are required to dim your LED.

The design of LED-fixtures is key to how LED technology is applied to illuminate specific areas
  • Because of LEDs directionality and high intensity, LED products are specially designed with the intent to produce similar lighting levels but must account for glare issues.

Lighting Terminology 101

LM70 and LM80 Quality Assessment

LM79 and LM80 are testing methods by the Illuminating Engineering Society of North America (IESNA) that provide electrical and photometric measurements of LED products to assess LED chip quality and the LED luminaire as a whole system.

Without LM79 or LM80, you cannot get a true LED Hour Life of your fixture.

CRI Accuracy

Colour Rendering Index (CRI) is a quantitative measure of how accurately a light is rendering colour when compared to a perfect reference light. It is measured in percent, the higher the percentage the more accurate the colour rendering is.

LED Colour Temperature Chart
  • 2,200-2,600K: Very warm white (candle)
  • 2,700-3,000K: Warm white
  • 3,100-3,900K: Natural White (moonlight)
  • 4,000-4,900K: Cool White
  • 5,000-6,500K: Day White (Daylight)
  • 7,500-10,000K: Blue sky
LED Hour Life

The life of an LED is measured statistically via the LM79 and LM80 testing methods. It is measured as the percentage of light output over time and represented by LP. For example, an LED light with L70 > 100,000 hour life implies that the LED light will have 70% of its original light output at the 100,000 hour. Although, one should keep in mind that the limiting life factor in an LED fixture is the driver, which is traditionally rated up to 100,000 hours.

IP Rating

Ingress or International Protection (IP) rating classifies the degrees of protection provided against solid objects and water in electrical enclosures. First digit indicates the protection against solids and second digit for protection against water. Click here for full IP Chart.
