High-powered LEDs and high heat environments
When it comes to LED lighting, high heat can present problem after problem. Do you know what these can be? What effect can they have on your lighting systems? And more importantly, what can you do to prevent them?
In high heat environments, where the daytime temperature is around 45ᵒC and it’s above 35ᵒC at night, your LED lighting systems could suffer from such issues as:
- Lumen depreciation – if you’re in a sector that’s strictly regulated, like the Aviation industry, you ignore this at your peril because it could make your system non-compliant.
- Colour shift – a big problem when you need colour recognition to be consistent across a whole working area.
- Total light engine failure – the worst scenario where the only solution is to replace the whole fixture.
- Power supply ageing – which can lead to a lot of maintenance and the costs that go with it.
