What are the three factors limiting the development of Chinese LED lighting

With the impact of escalating competition in the market and foreign products , China ‘s LED lighting industry especially the commercial LED lights such as outdoor LED flood light is vulnerable , there is almost no chance to develop for small brands squeezed by the big brands , what what are the three factors limiting our weak LED lighting market of small and medium enterprise, why are they

outdoor LED flood light

1 , the concept is behind :

The idea involves in many ways. Some of the manufacturer specializing in LED lighting products including the outdoor LED flood light consider that the LED lighting is low-tech, there is no need to invest time and capital developing the outdoor LED flood light and other LED lighting ; others  think that the high-end LED lighting products have no market , there is too big risk to invest ; those who weak implementation of the standard and technical standards and specifications; even lower on legal concepts, resulting in shoddy , fake outdoor LED flood light and related LED lighting products. From the user ‘s point of view , some believe that the light coping with daily lighting is OK , they do not want to spend more money upgrading equipment or buying high-end outdoor LED flood light or other commercial or household LED lighting fixtures ; Some reject the use of complex , high-performance LED lighting requiring high maintenance , they do not care light leakage or not, just be satisfied with the lighting performance,; there are a considerable who used to the old lighting fixtures and are reluctant to accept new LED lighting products.

2, the design is weak :

There are a small number of and even not or the low levels of professional staff designing outdoor LED flood light and other LED lighting factory, which are often temporarily hired for the development of new outdoor LED flood light and other finished LED lighting products, although some of which are lighting expert, but the use of LED lighting is too broad, different products have different characteristics and applications, such as outdoor LED flood light is mainly designed and applied in the square,stadium for outdoor lighting,they do not know all of the characters and the function of LED lighting applications so that may not be able to design the appropriate LED lighting, not to mention to improve and upgrade the LED lighting product.

3 , inadequate investment in developing the LED lamps and lack of technical reserves :

In recent years, some domestic manufacturers have begun discerning greater capital investment to develop some new outdoor LED flood light and other commercial and industrial or household LED lighting products , but in the vast territory of China, driven by economic interests, short-sighted is not uncommon, and who are willing to invest large technical reserves developing and researching the technology of outdoor LED flood light and other LED lights is even more rare.Taking a good look at http://www.lead-lighting.com/products/sid53-1.htm for more information about the outdoor LED flood light.

What are the three factors affecting the price of Chinese LED lighting

There are several key factors affecting the price of LED lighting product including the COB LED flood light:

innovative-led-lighting

1, the Chinese enterprises without core technology

The vast majority of upstream core patents of LED industry lies in the hands of foreigners , Chinese enterprises specializing in COB LED flood light and other commercial and industrial or household LED lighting products have not mastered the core technology , although the capacity of manufacturing LED application products such as COB LED flood light and other finished LED products in China,accounting for 50 % share in the world , but it does account for at least part of the profits.

The main cost of LED lighting is that of LED chip , as long as the prices of chip down , LED lumen unit can be reduced considerably with that of the energy-saving lamps . With the process , the number grow,the costs of LED chip using larger wafers will continue to reduce, of which the rate low by 20% annually in recent years , among the factor on prices of LED chip,the price also includes the enhancement of the efficiency of light, the same price is used to buy a better product , so there is still a significant price cut of the LED chip.

2, it is difficult to cool for LED application products especially the high power LED lights such as COB LED flood light

The cost of cooling maintains the 5% , the effective cooling design is very simple , there are two directions which should know: First , for the LED chip and the path of exterior heat sink, the shorter the better ; Second , heat resistance , which is to have adequate heat conduction path and sufficient ” cooling path .”  of which the cost main lie in that of the structure , the cost of structure accounts for about 20% in that of designing the COB LED flood light and other LED lights,the costs is not much for cooling. The biggest problem now is how to create more creative , more reasonable structure design .

3, LED power supply applications

Power is weakest part of COB led flood light and other commercial and industrial or household LED lighting , restricting the development of LED lighting . Design account for about 20% costs of LED lighting, some of which is higher , with the development of technology, the power accounting for about 5-10 % of the cost of the whole COB led flood light and other LED lighting applications is the most reasonable.

Compared to the other afterlife , in fact, the cost of LED light source including the commercial COB LED flood light is not high, especially LED light is known as excellent environmental protection, energy saving, no mercury , and the price of COB LED flood lightand other LED lighting applications are sliding down at every quarter of year, the price of LED lighting will be able to reach an acceptable level of people sooner of later.Browsing http://www.lead-lighting.com/products/bid19-1.htm for the better understanding of COB LED flood light.

How to distinguish the performance of LED lights

1.Temperature

The temperature of LED energy-saving lamps especially the high power LED lights such ashigh power LED flood light should be low when normally work Otherwise , the life of high power LED flood light and other LED energy saving lamp is relatively short. Meanwhile, when the LED energy-saving lights light up , there are either quickly flashing or very harsh fluctuations, showing that there are quality problems of LED energy-saving lamps including the high power LED flood light.

high power LED flood light

2.  start-up performance

There will be two characteristics when LED energy-saving lamps start: First, the higher the temperature the more likely to start ; Second, turn off the lights , do not flash . Also what worth mentioning is that many high power LED flood light or other LED Energy-saving lamps are very dark when turning on, which is detrimental for lamp life , LED energy-saving lamps particularly the power LED lights such as the high power LED flood light shall be provided with power supply circuit and PCB board in its interior .

3. the interference

In China, the electromagnetic compatibility is the project the electrical equipment must pass, however, that this project is very complicated to detect, when the user purchases a lamp,first of all, see if there is the flag that is through National electromagnetic compatibility test on the package , the second is to use a shortwave radio , when the lights especially the power LED light including the high power LED flood light work , placed near the radio , the lower the noise shortwave radio emit, the better electromagnetic compatibility tested of high power LED flood light and other LED lights.Browsing http://www.lead-lighting.com/products/sid125-1.htm for the better understanding of high power LED flood light.

How to discriminate the merits of LED energy-saving lamps especially LED tube light

Many people do not know how to discriminate the merits of LED energy-saving lamps in daily  life, and thus bringing some of errors on the selection of LED lamps such as the household LED tube light or other commercial or household LED light,there are ” five to inspect .” are summarized

LED tube T8

A. inspect the packaging and Trademark

There are following the country mandatory LED lighting products manufacturer marked on the packaging: rated voltage, voltage range, rated power, rated frequency.

In general, label printing quality of good quality products including household LED tube light or other commercial or household LED light is legible , which is not easy to fall off , being wiped with a soft damp cloth , the signs is legible and indelible , there are trademarks of manufacturers and related certification mark. The shoddy household LED tube light or other commercial or household LED light are of poor print quality and fuzzy fonts, easy to erase, no manufacturer ‘s trademarks and related certification mark.

B.Inspect the appearance of household LED tube light or other commercial or household LED light

The quality LED energy-saving lamps is made of tricolor pipe, which is white. Also, speaking from the lamp , many household LED tube light can be just put together for comparison, the good consistency of shapes and sizes of LED tubes is mostly bent and molded by the machines , mostly mass-produced products. Consistency of the LED tube light and other LED lighting product is good, the quality is easier to be guaranteed, the interchangeability on maintenance is better. Of course , there shall not be cracks and loose and prized appearance on interfaces. During the installation and the demolition, there should be no loose cap , head tilt phenomenon . The shell of LED tube light and other LED lights must choose the kind of engineering plastics flame retardant plastic. Ordinary plastic and those deformation and flammable are prohibited for the production of energy-saving lamps,both of which can be simply determined from the surface , the latter surface is smooth, shiny , like frosted glass former surface texture.Taking a good look at http://www.ledclan.com/ for more information about the  LED tube light and other household LED lighting.
