Trust in ESTILUZ LEDs

Long life, though not infinite:
Although it is true that the lifetime of the LEDs is much higher than other alternative lighting systems, it is not infinite. For lighting systems based on LEDs reach their full potential in terms of life, the quality of the driver is crucial. Drivers used by ESTILUZ in their fixtures insure you have the highest quality. However, you can not be sure they will have a life of 50,000 hours like the LED, and may have to be replaced at some point. In the same way that the driver affects the performance and life of the LEDs, the installation, the current dissipation and temperature  are also very important factors in assuring a long life of the LED.

The importance of proper heat dissipation:
It is said that the light generated by an LED is a "cold light". In fact, you can touch an LED bulb with your fingers as long as you want without getting burned, and regardless of the intensity of light. But it does emit heat, but does so in a manner differently from  an incandescent or fluorescent way. The fundamental difference is that the heat is projected in the opposite direction to the light. So the light is cold, but many parts of the luminaire may accumulate a lot of heat. LED efficiency is highly dependent on its operating temperature. An excessive increase and maintaining of temperature cause the depreciation of the flux emitted and this drastically shortens its life. The ventilation system is therefore essential.

Replacing the LED:
Like any electronic component, the LED can also fail. In good quality LEDs that have been installed correctly, failure usually occurs shortly after installation even though the long-term failures can also occur. The more time elapsed since the purchasing of the product means the replacement could be problematic and what is important is the guarantee of the company that manufactures and sells the LEDs. The LEDs can be replaced depending on several factors:

  • Access to the LED. To replace it, the LED should be easily accessible, hence the importance of the design of the lamp
  • Connecting the LED. LEDs can be connected to the current in two ways, by welding or connectors (sockets). ESTILUZ connectors are used solely to facilitate the repair or replacement by any professional electrician. The welding connection can affect LED life and imposes intervention of the manufacturer.
  • The manufacturer's mark.  In our view, Luxeon, Cree, Lumileds (Philips), Bridgelux and Seoul are the leading brands in LED technology, ensure reliability and durability. However, LED technology is evolving so rapidly, it is difficult to ensure continuity in time format. The mentioned manufacturers, suppliers of ESTILUZ, have a policy to keep the LED current format in their products, thus ensuring its potential replacement.
  • Heat dissipation. The heat dissipation is critical to ensure the proper functioning and durability of the LED. It is difficult to predict the heat transfer in the future if current LEDs heat sinks continue to fulfill their function, and / or whether they can be replaced by requiring the intervention of the manufacturer. Accustomed to the reparation of lamps for over 20 years, means you can trust Estiluz’s experience to meeting these challenges.

Constant evolution of LED:
In the future, you will probably be able to replace your current LED with a more powerful OLED, with lower energy consumption, higher color index and all without adding one driver. This technology is constantly evolving every day and is being constantly perfectioned.
