What is LED?
LED is a light emitting diode with a built-in semiconductor circuit. The working principle is based on a cold light narrow-spectrum electroluminescence, which is emitted from the movement of electrical current in the p-n junction of the semiconductor circuit. LED diodes are usually a light source with a narrow angle, which is increased by the form of the optical elements built in the diode. The colour of a LED diode depends on the material used in it.
Why choose LED?
What are the possible types of application?
LED lamps can be used as an additional source of light, as well as a primary lighting.
Product safety degrees and IP codes?
IP (International Protection) is the internationally accepted marking that characterizes the specific product's degree of safety against the entry of solid bodies and dust (first digit after the letters IP) and against the entry of water (second number after the letters IP).
The first number can have a value of 0 to 6 and has the following meaning:
0 - the least protected (not protected);
1 - protected against solid bodies of superior dimensions to 50 mm;
2 - protected against solid bodies of superior dimensions to 12 mm;
3 - protected against solid bodies of superior dimensions to 2,5 mm;
4 - protected against solid bodies of superior dimensions to 1,0 mm;
5 - protected against solid bodies of inferior dimensions to 1,0 mm;
6 - impenetrable to dust.
The second number can have a value of 1 to 8 and has the following meaning:
1 - protected against the vertical fall of water drops;
2 - protected against water drops with inclination of 75 degrees;
3 - protected against rain;
4 - protected against water sprays from below;
5 - protected against water jets;
6 - protected against big waves;
7 - protected against the effects of immersion;
8 - protected against the effects of submersion.
Thus, IP 44 means that the LED lamp can be used indoors as well as outdoors, but in an environment not too dusty and not subject to strong water sprays or submergence in water.
How to interpret codes in the e-led catalogue?
Each product code in the catalogue has a unique description code, according to which it is easy to orientate in the range and types of products.
Product code: GLED-710SP-SW-S1
Explanation: GLED - type of the LED lamp
710SP - model of the LED lamp
S - colour of the casing
W - colour of the LED module
S1 - quantity in a set
GLED - garden and built-in floor lamps
DKLED - built-in floor lamps
DLED - built-in indoor floor lamps
RLED - built-in stair and wall lamps
WLED - wall lamps
ELED - wall lamps for outdoor lighting
SNLED - wall lamps for signboard and advertisement lighting
PLED - wall lamp light fixtures for lighting paintings
NLED - indoor lamps for lighting at night
DLED - built-in furniture lamps
CKLED - indoor ceiling lamps
SLED - lighted glass shelves
ETLED - outdoor table lamps
TLED - table lamps
Colour keys for lamp casings:
S - silver
B - black
W - white
Colour keys for lamp LED modules:
W - white
B - blue
G - green
R - red
A - purple
Thus, a code GLED-710SP-S-S1 matches a LED garden lamp with a silver casing, white coloured LED modules, and one unit in a set.
