Will LED lighting harm our eyesight?

  • Near-infrared radiation is essential for health, is not produced by LEDs. They create a lot of blue light, which disrupts sleeping habits and can lead to eye illness over time.
  • LED lights are cool to the touch, one of its advantages and a contributing factor. LED lights don’t emit Near-infrared radiation. The sun emits this type of radiation, and incandescent and halogen bulbs also release it. 
  • The benefits of near-infrared heat are numerous. It permeates the skin profoundly and even penetrates garments. The retinal cells are primed to repair and regenerate when this type of light strikes the retina. This is impossible to achieve with LED lights. As a result, they should not be the sole source of light during the day.
  • Another issue with LED lights is the significant amount of blue light they emit. In the visible spectrum, blue light has the shortest wavelength. It has been thoroughly investigated and widely acknowledged to be hazardous to the eyes.

Why don’t fluorescent tubes produce a shadow?

  • Filament bulbs are point sources, which means that the light comes from a single point and spreads out in all directions. Because light only travels in straight lines, it casts a shadow when an object obstructs it. Whether it’s a filament bulb or a fluorescent bulb.
  • Because no light ray falls on the darkened area in the case of a filament bulb, the shadow is sharp. In the case of a tube light, the light source is lengthy. Therefore there is no potential for it to diffuse into the darkened zone (and even if it does, it is extremely modest).
  • Even if light from one end of the bulb casts a shadow, the darkened area may be illuminated by light rays from the other end or section of the bulb. As a result, the shadow is hazy.

What happens if you light a 20,000 watt light bulb?

  • A maximum wattage rating on many fittings. If any of yours do, it’s the highest wattage you can safely use in that fixture. Any bulb that draws even a little more current than the fixture’s maximum rating—for example, a 75W bulb in a fixture with a 60W maximum rating—risks causing a fire.
  • A label showing the maximum wattage rating is necessary on any modern fixture. If the light bulb is removed, it will be visible inside the fixture. Of course, unless you know differently, it’s safer to presume it contains less heat-resistant wiring. However, the issue of the maximum safe power remains unanswered.
  • Three factors influence the maximum safe wattage of a fixture. The first is the amount of heat produced by a specific light bulb. Another factor to consider is the fixture’s maximum heat tolerance. Whether the fixture is enclosed or open. If it is open, especially if it’s open on top, the maximum safe wattage will be higher. The larger the bulb may be, the easier it is for heat to escape from it.

Are LED tube lights flicker-free?

  • When inexpensive LED lamps are connected to old-style dimmer switches, they flicker repeatedly or when the dimmer is adjusted very low, there is always a controversy about poor quality LED lamps and luminaires that create flicker. This is due to the insufficient load being provided to the light caused by inconsistent voltage once again.
  • The dimmer switch was also built for traditional lighting, which has far higher loads than LED. With reputable LED items, switching to an LED-specific dimmer should solve the problem. The fluorescent ballast should be removed before installing LED Tubes; otherwise, incompatibility between the ballast and the LED light may cause a flicker.
  • Flickering lights, which are most usually associated with fluorescent lighting, can also be harmful to one’s health as one of the contributing elements to ‘Sick Building Syndrome.’ Migraine-inducing headaches and clogged or runny noses, dry, itchy skin, eyestrain, rashes, fatigue, and difficulty concentrating are all common symptoms.
  • Staff sickness-related absences or, in the worst-case scenario, long-term work absences result from these symptoms. Individuals with light sensitivity, such as those with autism, lupus, chronic fatigue, Lyme disease, and vertigo, may have a hard time with such flicker-inducing illumination. Epileptic seizures have been linked to short-term exposure to frequencies ranging from 3Hz to 70Hz.
  • All Jaquar LED products are dimmable, with commercial and industrial solutions boasting precision-focused DALI drivers and 0-10V dimming for smooth and gentle dimming. These are premium drivers that ensure that the LEDs receive a constant current and allow our luminaires to interact with lighting control systems to improve energy efficiency and eliminate light waste.

The magic of LED Lights?

  • LEDs utilize half as much energy as typical incandescent, fluorescent, and halogen bulbs, resulting in significant energy savings, particularly in areas where lights are left on for long periods, in contrast to traditional bulbs, which release light and heat in all directions, LEDs direct light in a specific direction. The ability to produce light saves both light and energy.
  • LEDs, unlike incandescent lighting, do not “burn out” or “fail”; instead, they dim over time. Depending on the quality of the bulb or fixture, LEDs have a lifespan of 30,000–50,000 hours or even more. An incandescent bulb lasts roughly 1,000 hours, while a compact fluorescent bulb lasts 8,000 to 10,000 hours. LEDs can reduce labor expenses associated with bulb replacement in commercial settings, resulting in a lower-maintenance lighting system.
  • Unlike fluorescent lights, LEDs enjoy the cold. Fluorescent lamps require more voltage to start at low temperatures, and their luminous flux (the apparent power or intensity of light) is reduced. In contrast, as working temperatures drop, LED performance improves. LEDs are therefore ideal for refrigerated showcases, freezers, and cold storage areas, as well as exterior applications such as parking lots, building perimeters, and signage.
  • Most fluorescent and HID bulbs don’t turn on to full brightness immediately, and many take three or longer to attain full brightness. On the other hand, LEDs turn on at full brightness practically quickly and do not require re-striking. This is useful during a power loss or if personnel enter a business early in the morning while it is still dark outside.

Is it safe to put a 75-watt bulb in a desk lamp?

  • A maximum wattage rating is seen on many fittings. If any of yours do, it’s the highest wattage you can safely use in that fixture. Any bulb that draws even a little more current than the fixture’s maximum rating—for example, a 75W bulb in a fixture with a 60W maximum rating—risks causing a fire.
  • A label showing the maximum wattage rating is necessary on any modern fixture. If the light bulb is removed, it will be visible inside the fixture. Of course, unless you know differently, it’s safer to presume it contains less heat-resistant wiring. However, the issue of the maximum safe power remains unanswered.

The recent emergence of LED firms may make it tough to find the correct one for you, but you can cross off your list efficiently with these considerations.

Which is better, led bulb or led tube?

  • LED bulbs are small and light. The size of a tube light or a fluorescent bulb is relatively large. The average LED bulb lasts 60000 hours. The life expectancy of a tube light is ten thousand hours. Compared to LED bulbs, this is six times less.
  • Compared to tube lights, LED Bulbs use five times less energy to provide the same level of illumination. The tube light consumes energy five times compared to LED bulbs.
  • LED bulbs are ideal for directional lighting applications such as flashlights and desk lamps. LEDs are also used in vehicle headlights and status lights in electrical equipment. Full-size tubes are appropriate for vast places like warehouses where focused light isn’t required.
  • The efficiency of LED lights is very high. In comparison to ordinary incandescent bulbs, tube lighting has high efficiency. However, compared to LED bulbs, it is less efficient and makes it clear that LED bulbs are more efficient than tube light, and you can get yourself some of the best-LED bulbs from Jaquar.

What are the different types of wiring?

  • Cleat Wiring: Ordinary VIR or PVC insulated wires (sometimes encased and weatherproof cable) braided and compounded are secured on walls or ceilings by porcelain cleats, plastic, or wood. Because cleat wire is a temporary wiring system, it is not ideal for home use. The cleat wiring method is no longer in use.
  • Casing and Capping Wiring: Casing and capping wiring systems were popular in the past, but Conduit and encased wiring systems have rendered them obsolete. VIR or PVC cables and any other permitted insulated cable were utilized in this type of wiring.
  • Batten Wiring: This type of wiring uses TRS cables that are single-core, double core, or three core with a circular, oval shape. Single-core cables are the most common choice. TRS cables are chemical, water, and steam resistant; however lubricating oil has a minor impact on their performance. TRS wires run on a 10mm thick, well-seasoned and straight teak wood batten.
  • Lead Sheathed Wiring: Conductors are insulated with VIR and covered with an outer sheath of a lead aluminum alloy containing roughly 95% lead in this form of wire. Cables were protected from mechanical damage, moisture, and air corrosion by the metal wrapping.
  • Conduit Wiring: Surface conduit wiring occurs when conduits are put on the roof or wall. In this wiring approach, holes are drilled through the wall at equal intervals, and the tube is fitted using rawl plugs. Concealed conduit wiring is when the conduits are hidden inside the wall slots with the help of plastering.

Why are fluorescent tubes used instead of bulbs?

  • Fluorescent lighting’s energy efficiency is one of its most attractive features. When compared to a traditional light bulb, a fluorescent tube typically saves 25-35 percent of the energy it consumes. Fluorescent lights also generate less heat than other types of lighting.
  • In comparison to incandescent bulbs, compact fluorescent lights are around four times as efficient. A 13-watt compact fluorescent light produces the same amount of light as a 60-watt incandescent bulb. For the amount of light they produce, they are pretty small. The majority of CFLs are 4-5 inches tall, with the most prominent, ultra-high-output CFLs being around 12 inches tall.
  • They have robust lumen maintenance, which implies that their light output does not degrade significantly over time. A CFL will still be nearly as bright after a couple of years of use. On the other hand, HID metal halide and high-pressure sodium bulbs can degrade by up to 50%. They have a 10,000-hour lifespan on average.
