Latest handpicked stories for you, so that you won't be feeling bored in your leisure!
You look astounded, are you? Of course you don’t really need to be. The society will live in has been made to be technology compliant. We must see the reality of technology in the way we reason, act or talk.
As it is, technology has taken over every facet of our life. We have used it to create a convenient environment for ourselves in various ways. Take as an example, the remote controlled lighting systems now in use in the cars we drive over the street testify to the impact of technology on us.
Importance Of LED Technology
As it is, the Light Emitting Diodes (LED) has come to replace the traditional light source. It is technologically packaged to work efficiently unlike the traditional light sources that have witnessed several challenges.
In a bid to effectively satisfy user’s utility, LED technology was introduced to amend the shortcomings of the earlier produced traditional light sources.
It becomes necessary to inform you that the LED product is a best bet because of its very affordable cost and portability nature.
As at the time that the technology was introduced, it served as indicator lamps in some electronic devices but now it is being used in every type of electronic lighting and it is very efficient.
Of course, the technology is a welcome development especially now that light source that conserve energy is what everyone is talking about. This is because it has always been our wish to reduce our energy consumption so that we won’t go short of it one day.
The LED technology consumes just ten percent energy requirement of the fluorescent bulbs in our homes. We won’t need to be concerned about whether our paid supply of energy will get exhausted.
Once we start using the LED light source, we will succeed in cutting down our energy or power cost and this will help us to make some savings that can be pumped to other places we want.
By the virtue of this low intake of power, LED products have gained much popularity and recognition especially in remote areas powered by solar panels.
The life span of LED product is very intimidating. It can last for over sixty hours of usage against the 1,500 hours that illuminating bulbs use.
It is also a known fact that the LED light technology last longer than the conventional bulbs. It cannot be damaged by vibration or extreme temperature characterized by the bulbs around us.
Obviously, there is every need for you to use products that can promise your safety. LED has not recorded any form of hazard of usage. It shows that the product is good, friendly and easy to use.
There are evidences that people now use the LED technology with many applications and devices. You now see it at work as sources of light in homes, cars, companies and lots of places.
It is therefore a common knowledge that the LED lighting technology has come to dictate the ways things must be done in the field of illumination. It is doing good as we speak and every user has got lots of testimonies to give in its efficiency.
The TIR Lens
The Total Internal Reflection lens (TIR) has what it looks like rotational symmetrical shape and it distributes light in a rounded form. Actually, it resembles a cone as it helps you to provide light in a self determined structure.
Most times, people use the TIR lens to channel rays of light in a uniformed pattern so that a particular ordering of the illumination is produced.
This form of illumination appeal to our sense of sight because of the beauty and fragrance that it carries. It can be used in public places of attraction.
TIR Lens Manufacturing Process
When light is being produced with the aid of the TIR lens, attention is not fully given to color conformity and this is a limit on the effective usage of the application.
This issue, as it is, can be addressed via effective usage of color. What do we mean by this? The color must be properly mixed so that a better output can be achieved.
In addition to this, getting angular color uniformity requires that a phosphor white LED module application must be used. Once this is done, color uniformity will be achieved.
As it is now, specially designed internal reflection lens have been produced by light experts. These lens have optimization channels through which move most of LED produced light to target plane.
From this plane, the light is properly managed to meet up with the end result of uniformed lighting. From here, color will be effectively mixed with the already channeled light do that an attractive radiant of life can be created.
It remains clear that TIR lens possess six different surfaces which are being controlled from 17 parameters. These parameters operate in dimensions and clear cut designs take place when these dimensions are optimized with algorithms.
When run on trace program, it was discovered that LED lighting system used with the optimized TIR lens produced efficient and uniformed illumination.
The interesting aspect of it is that these lenses can be made to work with several LED applications and production of different sizes of TIR lenses can only be determined by their optical performances.
Apparently, it is clear that these lenses will enhance the utility level one can derive from using the LED technology as it adds value to the light that the technology is capable of producing.
Everywhere you go to these days, you see people talk extensively about various innovations in the area of science and technology. Of course, we cannot shy away from the fact that advancement in technology has paved way for several discoveries.
