Industrial LED Lighting

As cliché it may sound, it’s true to state that the lighting industry has evolved drastically in the past few years. The evolution of light bulbs from inexpensive incandescent bulbs to long-lasting and affordable LED lighting had an enormous impact on the lighting industry and is continuing to do so. Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are the most energy-efficient and cost-effective lighting option available in the market today. The demand is especially high in the commercial market due to the many benefits attached to them. Effective Industrial LED lighting contributes safety, efficiency, and productivity while effectually lighting up industrial workplaces. Thus, LED lights have become the lighting commodity of choice.


Advantages of LEDs in Industrial Sector – Commercial Lighting

1) EfficiencyAs compared to incandescent bulbs, LEDs are far more energy efficient and consume 80% less power. They use only a fraction of the energy used by incandescent bulbs and save a lot of money in maintenance. Thanks to the low power usage of LEDs, they are becoming an industrial lighting staple.

ii) Longevity – As compared to the 1,500 hours’ lifespan of incandescent bulbs, LEDs last around 60,000 hours. To be precise, an LED light, if used continuously, would last for more than seven years without the need of being replaced. Wipro Lighting brings you a wide range of LEDs that are ideal for areas that need low maintenance, long-lasting and high-performance luminaries.

iii) Maintenance Costs – Thanks to the long operational life and the sturdy foundation of LEDs, the maintenance cost is much lower as compared to conventional lighting and other light sources. The initial cost may be higher, but it can be easily recouped in a matter of years, courtesy the longevity and low power consumption of LEDs.  The long operational life is an added advantage.

iv) No Emissions – The biggest benefit of LED lighting is that they produce zero UV emissions which make them highly suitable to be used in industries. The heat emitted by industrial LED lighting is not strong enough to cause harm to the goods and materials that are sensitive to heat. Also, they can be left on for hours without worrying about their performance. Industries today are putting in extra efforts to provide safer and better lighting to their workers for increased efficiency.

Smart Lighting – Role of IoT

Internet of Things is a phenomenon where physical devices embedded with electronics, software, and sensors are interconnected with a network to collect and exchange data. IoT enables objects to be controlled or sensed remotely across an entire network. There is a huge stride in the technological innovations across industries, and lighting is one of them. Connected lighting has become the new buzz in the lighting industry after the integration of lighting equipment with IoT came into being. It is merely a term used to describe any lighting paraphernalia that has an element of network connectivity to it.

Do’s and Don’ts of Industrial LED Lighting

Do’s Don’ts
i) When choosing industrial lighting, choose appropriate lights for appropriate applications. i) Ineffective and unthoughtful lighting is a waste of money. Also, can cause safety risk.
ii) Though LEDs call for less maintenance, routine care can make them function effectively for a longer time. ii) Avoid using LED lighting with insufficient ingress protection. Especially, in wet and dusty locations.
iii) Use professional lighting services like Wipro Lighting to be assured that safety standards are achieved. iii) Don’t invest on LED merely based on the cost. Instead, go for the one that is low on maintenance and promises longer life.
iv) Choose high-efficiency LEDs with the reliable LED driver to enhance luminaire efficiency and energy savings of more than 50 percent. iv) Don’t use just the energy savings alone to calculate your savings. Include additional maintenance and service cost.

Energy efficient lighting solutions in industries need to meet the highest safety and quality standards. The right light significantly helps reduce absenteeism and error rates. Wipro Lighting has a wide range of industrial LEDs that are high on performance, long-lasting and ideal for industries of all kinds.
