ENLUX LED FLOODLIGHT



Published: Sat, January 8, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



ENLUX LED FLOODLIGHT

Life: 50,000 hours

Power usage: 22 watts

Light output: 300 lumens at 15-watt input

Could last: 17 years if on for eight hours a day LED technology

Touted as: The next generation of illumination.

How it works: Light-emitting diode lamps use semiconductors, not wire filaments, to conduct electricity and generate light. Traditional incandescent light bulbs use filament, which quickly wears out from repeated heating and cooling.

Now: Used mainly for traffic signals, large video screens, automobile taillights and holiday lights.

Invented: In the 1960s, for use as an indicator light that showed whether a small electronic product had power or was active.

Pros: Long life, energy efficient, clear light, doesn't break easily

Cons: Light output is weaker than other light sources; cannot be dimmed; is expensive and the color does not look as warm

Warning: Looking directly at LED lights for a prolonged period of time within a short distance might cause eye injury.
