LED Light Bulbs: What Are The Optical Components?

optical components of LED light bulbs

In addition to their Electrical and Thermal properties, LED’s also have optical components that make them significantly different than traditional lighting. In terms of performance, LED lights are considered the superior form of lighting based on these four major indicators:

1 iconBrightness & Efficiency 

This is directly related to the amount of light LED’s emit. The amount of light they emit is dependent on the wattage, or power, they require to function.

 

2 iconColor Temperature

LED’s have three different color temperatures. Warm White, Daylight White, and Natural White or Cool White. 

3 iconLifespan

You can use the same LED light bulb for up to 50,000 hours. That is equivalent to 30 years, if used regularly, like at home. Commercial usage can average about 20,000 hours, which is still a very large margin to its fluorescent counterpart. 

4 iconLight Distribution  ​

LED’s are omni-directional, which means that their light output has a wider beam angle. This function makes LED light bulbs far more efficient than traditional bulbs.
