BIMTECH is environment friendly and committed to energy saving. We have changed 1744 conventional tube lights of 36 watt each with 15 watt LED tube lights in Classrooms, Academic Block, Mess, and students’ rooms in Hostel blocks in Campus as well as Off Campus Hostel. Some advantages of the change are listed below:
Long life time stands out as the number one benefit of LED lights. LED bulbs and diodes have an outstanding operational life time expectation of up to 50000 to 80000 hours. If you keep the LED fixture on for 8 hours per day, it would take around 11 to 20 years before you’d have to replace the LED bulb.
LEDs are different than standard lighting. They don’t really burn out and stop working like a standard light. Moreover, the lighting diodes emit lower output levels over a very long period of time and become less bright.
These days, it is the most efficient way of illumination and lighting, with an estimated energy efficiency of 80%-90% as compared to traditional lighting and conventional light bulbs. This means that about 80% of the electrical energy is converted to light, while 20% is lost and converted into other forms of energy such as heat.
With traditional incandescent light bulbs that operate at 20% energy efficiency only, 80% of the electricity is lost as heat.
LED lights are free of toxic chemicals. Most conventional fluorescent lighting bulbs contain a multitude of materials like mercury that are dangerous for the environment.
LED lights contain no toxic materials and are 100% recyclable, and will help you to reduce your carbon footprint by up to a third. The long operational life time span mentioned above also means that one LED light bulb can save material and production of 25 incandescent light bulbs. A big step towards a greener future!
LEDs are extremely durable and built with sturdy components that are highly rugged and can withstand even the roughest conditions.
Because LED lights are resistant to shock, vibrations and external impacts, they make great outdoor lighting systems for rough conditions and exposure to weather, wind, rain or even external vandalism, traffic related public exposure and construction or manufacturing sites.
Zero UV Emissions
LED illumination produces little infrared light and close to no UV emissions.
Because of this, LED lighting is highly suitable not only for goods and materials that are sensitive to heat due to the benefit of little radiated heat emission, but also for illumination of UV sensitive objects or materials such as in museums, art galleries, archeological sites etc.
Operational in Extremely Cold or Hot Temperatures
LEDs are ideal for operation under cold and low outdoor temperature settings. For fluorescent lamps, low temperatures may affect operation and present a challenge, but LED illumination operates well also in cold settings, such as for outdoor winter settings, freezer rooms etc.
LED is designed to focus its light and can be directed to a specific location without the use of an external reflector, achieving higher application efficiency than conventional lighting. Well-designed LED illumination systems are able to deliver light more efficiently to the desired location.
Instant Lighting & Frequent Switching
LED lights brighten up immediately when powered on, which has great advantages for infrastructure projects.
Also, LED lights can be switched off and on frequently and without affecting the LED’s lifetime or light emission. In contrast, traditional lighting may take several seconds to reach full brightness, and frequent on/off switching does drastically reduce operational life expectancy.
A low-voltage power supply is sufficient for LED illumination. This makes it easy to use LED lighting also in outdoor settings, by connecting an external solar-energy source and is a big advantage when it comes to using LED technology in remote or rural areas.
