Without a doubt, developments in high-power LEDs represent one of the most significant and impactful innovations to hit the lighting technology industry in recent years. High-power or highbrightness LEDs, loosely defined as LEDs with at least 1-watt capacity, have invigorated the lighting industry by offering unparalleled benefits in terms of lighting performance, energy efficiency, durability and cost savings. However, while the numerous benefits of high-power LED technology have been rightfully celebrated in industry publications and reflected in the rapidly expanding high-power catalogues of Lumex and other leading suppliers, it is important to note that high-power is not necessarily the best choice for every light technology application. In fact, there are many situations where standard LED technology can provide comparable brightness performance while generating significant cost, design and performance benefits. The focus of this discussion will help illuminate key considerations to think through when deciding if standard LED or high-power LED lighting is the best choice for your product design.
