RS Components will be exhibiting its own-brand LEDs and a selection of products from Osram Opto Semiconductors & Osram Lighting at this year’s euroLED, taking place between 3rd and 4th June at the Ricoh Arena, West Midlands. Visitors to the RS Stand, LED8, will be able to view and find out how its range of solid state lighting (SSL) solutions can reduce maintenance and re-lamping costs.
LED lamps are central to the solid-state revolution and when compared with conventional lighting sources offer higher levels of efficiency and reliability, longer life times, dramatic colour options and eco-friendly technology.
RS own-brand LEDs
The wide beam angle and low heat output of RS’ own-brand LED lamps make them suitable for many lighting applications in industrial locations, offices, hotels, hospitals and bars. RS’ LED lamps have been designed to ensure the correct running temperature is maintained, significantly lengthening the lamp’s life.
Lighting now represents a staggering 14% of the overall energy used in Europe. With the rapid progress in LED technology, the new lamps last up to 50,000 hours, 10 times longer than traditional dichroic lamps. The LED lamps are able to consume six times less power than traditional lights. Up to 98% of the energy used by regular lamps is wasted through heat loss, whereas energy lost as heat in LED lamps is much less in comparison, demonstrating the potential energy- and cost-savings that can be achieved through the installation of LEDs.
euroLED, now in its 6th year, is a highlight in the global SSL calendar. It provides global organisations with the opportunity to penetrate, expand and understand the European and global LED & SSL markets.
