What is the best LED panel

LED light and the sources that produce it have a number of advantages over their competitors. LED lighting technology is more economical, safer and more durable in operation. As a result, it quickly extrudes predecessors from the market. In most modern countries, the production of conventional incandescent lamps has been completely discontinued. The same fate will soon await energy-saving light devices.

Structural solutions – LED lamps, illuminators and strips

There are three most popular types of designs using LED radiation.

  1. Lamps. Visually, they differ little from the usual light bulbs. All of them are supplied with plinths of similar dimensions, so it’s easy to use them in universal lamps, sconces and chandeliers. They provide brighter light, are insensitive to voltage drops, and do not attract insects. The power consumption ratio is 1 watt LED-lamp = 10 watts of a usual one.
  2. Illuminators. The range is very wide and designed for a variety of purposes - from camping lanterns and "night lights" in the bedrooms to powerful streetlights. They always come with built-in adapters. Due to the possibility of mounting on a single board, a significant number of elements are capable of delivering brightness up to several thousand lumens.
  3. Strips. Visually they are very attractive and economical at the same time. One strip can combine diodes of different colors. It’s versatile, easy to stick with the help of adhesive tape on any surface. Length and shape are not limited. The strip is powered only by direct voltage 12/24 volts.

It’s hard to choose which of the options is better. The choice depends on the specific situation, the place of use and the preferences of the user.

Thermodynamic parameters of LED lighting

The light’s hue of the perception, that we see depends on its temperature. It is customary to distinguish three variants of "white" light.

  1. Cold. Over 5000K is perceived as bluish. It is used to illuminate design objects and interior elements. The main scope of application is industrial premises, offices, and exhibition halls.
  2. Neutral. From 3000 to 5000K. It’s ideal for domestic use - lighting reception areas, kitchen work areas and offices, as well as in the Australian outdoor garden. Does not distort the perception of objects, is perceived comfortably.
  3. Warm. Less than 3000K. This one belongs to the "yellow" part of the spectrum. It is the calmest one, so it occurs especially often in children's rooms and bedrooms as bedside and wall lamps.

Colorful lightning

Another variety of LED-light emitting diodes. It is mainly used for explosive installation - SMD (Surface Mount Device). Unlike single color modifications 3528, diodes of the 5050 type with three emitting sources are used here.
Such diodes are typically used in show business, entertainment facilities and on holidays to create a positive atmosphere.

Which LED lamps are more reliable - protection degrees

In terms of reliability, LEDs are divided into two categories - protection against moisture and dust.
The degree of IP protection is indicated in a two-digit numeric marking. The first digit (from 0 to 6 as reliability increases) is the dust protection index.

Level sized

Effective against

Description

IP0X

No protection

IP1X

> 50 mm

Large body surfaces (palm, elbow), no protection against deliberate contact with a body part

IP2X

> 12.5 mm

Fingers or similar objects

IP3X

> 2.5 mm

Tools, thick wires, etc.

IP4X

> 1 mm

Most wires, slender screws, large ants etc.

IP5X

Dust protected

Ingress of dust is not entirely prevented, but it must not enter in sufficient quantity to interfere with the satisfactory operation of the equipment.

IP6X

Dustproof

Absolute protection against dust

 
The second (from 0 to 8) is the liquid protection index.

Level

Protection against

Effective against

IPX0

No protection

IPX1

Dripping water

Dripping water (vertically falling drops) shall have no harmful effect on the device.

IPX2

Dripping water when tilted at 15°

Vertically dripping water shall have no harmful effect when the device is tilted at an angle of 15° from its normal position. 

IPX3

Spraying water

Water falling as a spray at any angle up to 60° from the vertical shall have no harmful effect.

IPX4

Splashing of water

Protection against splashes falling in any direction.

IPX5

Water jets

Protected against water jets from any direction.

IPX6

Strong water jets or waves

Protection against sea waves or strong water jets.

IPX7

Short Immersion, up to 1 met depth

During short-term immersion, water does not get inside in quantities that disrupt the operation of the device.

IPX8

Long Immersion, up to 1 met depth

Full waterproof. The device can work in immersed mode


For various installation locations, the following LED safety levels are the minimum acceptable:

  • ordinary premises - IP20;
  • bathrooms - IP44 and above;
  • streetlights, swimming pools - IP65 and above.

If you want a bright room with pleasant and resource-saving lighting then the best option would be LED lighting sources from the Polish brand VIDEX. We guarantee a long service life as well as the high quality of our products.
