Advantages of low-voltage lighting
What is covered by the term 'low-voltage lighting'? It is LED lighting from 12 volts to 48 volts, which gives users a much wider range of operating options, but also generates lower electricity bills. Find out why you should bet on LED systems.
Where is low-voltage lighting used?
Until recently, low-voltage lighting was mainly used in production halls and plants, where continuity of power supply and adequate lighting of all areas must be ensured, and where electricity consumption is huge and generates high costs. Today, however, low-voltage lighting is no longer only finding its way into industry. It is also increasingly becoming a feature of commercial and private buildings, where it is appreciated for its energy efficiency and high performance.
12 V low-voltage lighting is an extremely safe solution, as it poses no risk of electric shock to people or animals. This is why there is an increasing number of users who are also happy to use it in high-risk environments (e.g. in bathrooms, kitchens or outdoors where it comes into contact with moisture. LED strips and strips are an excellent example of low-voltage 12V lighting that is particularly popular. However, they are not always a sufficient source of light.
On the other hand, low-voltage lighting with higher strength, 24-48 volts, will work everywhere. Its use translates into increased occupational safety, especially in all kinds of ducts (e.g. in car repair shops), from which it is more difficult to escape in emergencies. It also works well in large halls and industrial plants where, for example, rolling stock is manufactured. In homes, this type of lighting is usually found in cellars and garages.
Low-voltage lighting can be found in the Tytan LED range from Lena Lighting. It is used wherever low-voltage electrical installation is required by the health and safety workstation manual.
Why trust LED technology?
The advantage of low-voltage lighting is that it is waterproof. There is a reason why it finds its way into areas exposed to moisture, including the outdoors. An example of this is the Magnum Future LED 32W floodlight. The high luminous flux and maximum degree of impact resistance are particularly important for illuminating construction sites or for the work of services intervening at various emergencies. The high degree of sealing, on the other hand, makes it possible to use the floodlight in the most difficult weather conditions.
Low-voltage lighting is ideal for offices, commercial premises and private homes alike. This is because they generate a much lower operating temperature and do not require such significant amounts of electricity as is the case with 230 V lighting. LEDs have the advantage that they emit maximum light using minimum electricity. They also do not need to heat up for a long time, a process that consumes a lot of electricity. By using LED light in industrial plants, costs associated with electricity consumption can be reduced by up to 70%. An example of this is the Tytan LED pro line of lamps, which are designed for installation in areas with high dust- and waterproofing requirements.
In addition, the LED modules that are used in Lena Lighting have a very long lifetime, which directly translates into lower operating costs.
Ecology, or how LED lighting affects the environment
Lower electricity consumption is not only energy efficient, but also ecological. As does a high level of faultlessness - so you generate less electro-waste and enjoy your lighting for longer. It is also worth mentioning that low-voltage lighting does not have mercury in its design, which is particularly harmful to the environment.
In addition, some lamps from Lena Lighting, such as the Camea LED Evo plafond, are also available in a variant with a radio motion sensor (RCR), which activates the light output when the presence of the user is detected. When the user leaves the area, the unit automatically switches to standby. Controlled power consumption is a solution that benefits both your wallet and the environment.
