LED Outdoor Lighting: An Ideal Choice for High Efficiency, Energy Saving, Long Life and Environmental Protection

by TUBU

November 24, 2023


In recent years, with the continuous development of LED technology, LED outdoor lighting is becoming more and more popular. LED outdoor lighting has the advantages of energy efficient, long life, environmental protection, dimmable, waterproof and dustproof, etc., which is an ideal alternative to traditional outdoor lighting. In this article, we will introduce the types of LED outdoor lighting, features, shopping guide, etc., for you to choose the right LED outdoor lighting to provide reference.

Types of LED outdoor lighting

Tunnel Lighting

Tunnel lighting refers to the lighting carried out in the tunnel, its purpose is to ensure the safety and comfort of traveling in the tunnel. Tunnel lighting has the following characteristics:

Light and dark transition: the tunnel entrance and exit lighting intensity should be coordinated with the lighting intensity of the external road, in order to avoid visual fatigue of drivers in the light and dark transition.

Uniform lighting: the lighting inside the tunnel should be uniform, avoiding dark spots and bright spots, in order to ensure that the driver’s field of vision is clear.

Anti-glare: tunnel lighting should avoid glare, so as not to affect the driver’s line of sight.

The design of tunnel lighting should be based on the length, width, speed, traffic volume and other factors for comprehensive consideration. At present, tunnel lighting mainly adopts LED light source, which has the advantages of high energy efficiency and stable light effect.

Road lighting

Road lighting refers to the lighting on the road, and its purpose is to ensure the safety and comfort of road traffic. Road lighting has the following characteristics:

Uniform lighting: road lighting should be uniform, avoiding dark spots and bright spots to ensure the safety of pedestrians.

Anti-glare: should avoid producing glare so as not to affect the vision of pedestrians.

Energy saving and environmental protection: road lighting should use energy-saving and environmentally friendly light sources to reduce energy consumption.

The design of road lighting should be based on the width of the road, speed, traffic volume, the surrounding environment and other factors for comprehensive consideration. At present, road lighting mainly adopts LED light source, which has the advantages of high energy efficiency and stable light effect.

Features of LED outdoor lighting

High efficiency and energy saving: the light efficiency of LED lamps and lanterns is several times higher than that of traditional light sources, which can save more than 50% of energy and reduce operating costs. For example, the luminous efficacy of LED street light can be up to 100lm/W, while the luminous efficacy of traditional sodium lamp is only 20lm/W. This means that the use of LED street light can reduce the lighting power by 50%, saving a lot of energy.

Long life: the service life of LED lamps and lanterns can reach more than 50,000 hours, which is dozens of times of the traditional light source, reducing the frequency of replacement and maintenance, and reducing the maintenance cost. For example, the service life of traditional sodium lamps is about 20,000 hours, while the service life of LED street lights can reach 50,000 hours. This means that the use of LED street lights can reduce the frequency of replacement and maintenance by 50%.

Environmental protection: LED lamps do not contain mercury and other harmful substances, no pollution, in line with environmental requirements. For example, traditional sodium lamps contain mercury, while LED lamps do not contain mercury. This means that using LED street lamps can reduce mercury pollution.

Dimmable: LED lamps can achieve adjustable parameters such as luminous flux, color temperature and color to meet the needs of different scenes. For example, in road lighting, the brightness of LED street lamps can be adjusted according to the width of the road and traffic flow to achieve safety and energy saving.

Waterproof and dustproof: LED lamps and lanterns have good waterproof and dustproof performance, which is suitable for use in harsh outdoor environments. For example, LED streetlights can be installed in rain or snow without affecting the lighting effect.

LED outdoor lighting has the above characteristics, has become the mainstream light source for outdoor lighting. At present, LED outdoor lighting is widely used in road lighting, landscape lighting, architectural lighting and other fields, to provide a safe and comfortable lighting environment for people’s night travel and life.

LED outdoor lighting purchase guide

Determine the use of the scene: LED outdoor lighting can be used in road lighting, landscape lighting, architectural lighting and other different scenes. Different scenes have different requirements for LED outdoor lighting, and should be selected according to the specific use of the scene.

Determine the brightness requirements: brightness is an important indicator to measure the effect of LED outdoor lighting. In determining the brightness requirements, should consider the size of the lighting area, lighting objects, lighting requirements and other factors.

Determine the color temperature needs: color temperature refers to the color tone of the light. In determining the color temperature needs, should consider the lighting environment, the color of the lighting object and other factors.

Determine other needs: After determining the brightness, color temperature and other basic needs, should also consider the waterproof grade, service life, price and other needs.

What is best LED street light?

The best led street light is energy efficient, durable and long lasting. They should also be bright enough to illuminate the area without being too harsh. Brightness is an important indicator of how well a street light illuminates. Generally speaking, the higher the brightness, the better the lighting effect. However, too much brightness can produce glare and impair vision. Color temperature refers to the hue of the light, which is generally divided into warm white, natural white and cold white. Warm white temperature light is yellowish, giving people a warm and cozy feeling; natural white temperature light is whitish, closer to natural light; cool white temperature light is bluish, giving people a bright and fresh feeling. The luminous efficacy refers to the ratio of luminous flux emitted by the lamps to the electric power consumed, which is an important index to measure the energy-saving effect of street lamps. Generally speaking, the higher the luminous efficiency, the better the energy saving effect. Street lights are usually installed outdoors, so they should have good waterproof performance. The higher the waterproof grade, the better the waterproof performance. The service life of street lights is usually more than 50,000 hours.
