5 Curious Facts About Led Lights

Many strange things about led lighting systems could convince you to purchase them in your Home.

Here Evitech explaining you 5 interesting facts about led light:

They do not use mercury.

Because the LED light radiates through an electronic panel of diodes, the mercury often used in fluorescent light tubes is not involved in any way.

This is a tremendous advantage since, according to the head of Fundaci√≥n Chile’s Sustainability projects, Paola Matus, “the toxicity of mercury can harm the nervous, circulatory and heart systems. This element bioaccumulates and can move over great distances.

LED Light has two Parents

Two dates and different protagonists take us to the beginnings of the led lamp. In 1962 an advisor to the General Electric company named Nick Holonyak was looking to transform electrical energy into optics. In that year, he developed the first light-emitting diode.

In 1993, the Japanese Shuji Nakamura perfected the discovery, receiving the Nobel Prize in Physics and making the white LED known.

Repels Insects

It is not common to see insects fluttering around the led light because this technology does not generate heat, and mosquitoes are thermoreceptors.

Flying insects are cold-blooded and seek heat generators for their life and reproduction process. LED lamps do not provide them with good thermal conditions in this sense, hence their little interest.

Its Proven Effectiveness in Museums

Prestigious museums such as the Louvre in France, the Vatican City Museum and the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican exhibit valuable works of art illuminated with LED technology.

Those in charge have found that LED lighting devices respect the conservation criteria of the objects to which they project their light.

Likewise, due to their discreet and minimalist design, they integrate perfectly with the existing architecture on the site.

The use of led lights in aquatic species

Those who developed the hobby of conserving marine species have obtained good results by adapting the light intensity of the LED panels to their aquariums. 

LED lights have been possible to emulate the natural conditions and beauties of the sea, and LED panels are being successfully installed in public aquariums as an approximation to the original Lighting.

LED Lighting has been used efficiently in various ways, but you can be sure it will continue to experience innovation.
