Why LED?

LED light fittings are a relatively recent introduction to the hazardous area lighting market.

The LED or Light Emitting Diode was introduced on an industrial scale in the 1960s – then the main application for LED light was for indication lamps within electrical and electronic devices. By the 1990s, the LED had been commercially adopted in moving sign displays, modern electronic devices, mobile phones and computers etc. Around 2006, when research and development had advanced, the LED was accepted as a useful general light source.

The development of the LED as a general light source for hazardous area industries and potentially explosive atmospheres has accelerated at such a pace that they are now in some cases producing 200 Lumens per Watt. Until very recently the theoretical maximum output had been calculated to be around 220 Lumens per Watt.

To put the above into perspective a General Lighting Service (GLS) lamp or light fitting typically produces around 10 Lumens per Watt, a Fluorescent lamp typically produces around 90 Lumens per Watt and an HID (High Intensity Discharge) Lamp produces up to 120 Lumens per Watt.

As you can see from the above statistical data the potential for energy savings has been the main specification reason behind the development of ever more efficient LED lighting solutions.
