Educación sobre control de la iluminación


LED technology is rapidly improving and many LED products are already positioning themselves as an energy-saving alternative in commercial and residential applications.

What is an LED?

An LED (light emitting diode) is a semiconductor device that produces light when it receives an electric current flow. The device can be manufactured in various color temperatures. For general lighting purposes, the LEDs are then grouped into an LED array (also called an LED light engine). This array combines multiple LED chips to form a complete light source that produces a light output equivalent to a focus.

LED arrays are integrated into a luminaire or LEDi spotlight (with a screw-on Edison base).

What are the advantages of using LEDs?

Ensures energy savings: LED light sources offer long-lasting benefits, are eco-friendly, and can minimize energy costs in your home or business by using 15 to 20 watts to replace the 100-watt incandescent.
Reduce maintenance costs - Dim LEDs to extend product life and reduce maintenance costs.
Maximize Design Options - Transform your visual environment with striking, high levels of color and LEDs.

Why is LED control important?

As the use of LED light sources expands and their use extends to general lighting, (not just used for highlighting anymore) it is more important than ever that these sources be controllable.

At home, the consumer expects their light source to be like an incandescent bulb, meaning that it is fully dimmable to less than 1%. From a commercial point of view, dimmable lights are critical for energy savings and increased productivity.

LED products must ensure that their dimming performance meets customer expectations and must specify which dimmers they are compatible with and the minimum level at which they can be dimmed.
