LED Light Guide Technology Reduces Power without Sacrificing Brightness
LED light guide technology has revolutionized lighting solutions by reducing the power needs of the system while still providing bright, reliable light. This technology provides many benefits, like improved reliability and expected shelf life, reduced spacing and size constraints and, of course, lower power consumption.
Here are four smart ways you can reduce power without sacrificing LED brightness.
1. LED Efficiency
How can you do more with less? It’s all about efficiency. Choosing more efficient LEDs can make a world of difference for your application. A more efficient LED may seem like an expensive option, but keep in mind that it’s not just about the cost of the LED—what you should really consider is the cost per Lumen of output.
What many people don’t realize is that high-efficiency LEDs are more cost-effective. They also reduce your power needs. LED light guide technology enables light designers to do more with less and create efficient LED lighting systems.
2. Light Guide Extraction Efficiency
Our innovative light guide technology offers higher efficiency and overall improved extraction. This helps achieve the goal of reducing power consumption.
When more light is extracted and directed to the user’s target area, we can improve efficiency and lower power usage. This not only saves energy, but also costs associated with running the lighting system.
3. Light Guide Material Efficiency
Light absorbed by the light guide material is lost from the display. This isn’t ideal because you want as much light to be retained as possible. This is why we suggest you switch to a material with a higher transmissivity to improve efficiency and it will aid in the retention of more light.
4. LED Driver Circuit
A highly efficient LED driver circuit helps prevent power loss and improves the result. This is often overlooked, as many engineers design circuits that use resistors to reduce voltage and match current to the LEDs. You can prevent those power losses from occurring by using custom designed LED driver chips and circuits with improved efficiency in your lighting systems.
Custom Light Guide Technology
The job of a light guide is to take the light from the LED and spread it uniformly over the surface that’s being illuminated. With the right design and technology, a custom light guide can actually conserve most of the initial LED efficiency while greatly increasing uniformity of the display, offering the best of both worlds.
