The average life span of most LED lights is about 50,000 hours. However, this does not mean that the light will last that long. Because the life span is also related to other components. So to make your commercial LED flood light last longer. Let us learn about how to maintain them.
1. Occasionally provide dust removal service
A properly installed LED system usually requires a small amount of maintenance from time to time. It is recommended to use a soft and dry microfiber cloth to avoid any material getting stuck on the LED components.
2. Avoid high temperature and humidity
The environment, including operating and storage temperatures, is a very important factor in the life of LED lamps. An environment that is too hot or too humid will reduce the lamp’s operating time because it affects the internal electronics.
3. Check the connection point
During the life of any LED system, normal tearing and wear may occasionally cause some connection points, which may loosen them. If the LED flashes or cannot be turned on, make sure that all connectors to and from the affected area are firmly fixed.
How to maintain your commercial LED flood light? The above content is introduced in detail, please follow the blog posted by bbier for more details. In the process of using LED floodlights outdoors, the main task of lamp cleaning is to deal with surface dust. If the commercial LED flood light encounters more surface dust, just wipe the glass with a clean cloth during maintenance. There may be dirt on the surface.
In order to prevent this, the following measures should be taken.
1. Clean the surface before installation
The design of LED lights makes the installation process very easy. They have an adhesive installation option when they are manufactured. In order to ensure that the LED adhesive remains safe, there should be no dust or debris on the surface during the installation process. If the surface is rough, it can be polished with sandpaper, and the polished surface can be wiped with alcohol.
2. Avoid excessive contact
To be sure, occasional interactions can be expected. However, it is worth noting that the LED light bar is composed of fragile parts, which may become loose or even broken if not handled properly. The LED system should be installed away from a place with heavy traffic to prevent accidental damage.
3. Limit your LED exposure to moisture
Low-pressure LEDs may handle some moisture from splashes or steam. If excessive or prolonged exposure to water, may affect the integrity of the system. Moisture will reduce the effectiveness of the adhesive and may also cause the LED components to crack or rust. You should use a paper towel or soft cloth to dry the areas that come in contact with moisture. LEDs with strong weather resistance should not be immersed in water.
A simple guide to installing LED floodlights
It does not need to be fixed to the wall, the ground, or other places. No special tools are required.
Step 1. cut the power supply First of all, for safety’s sake, please turn off the main power supply.
Step 2. Connect the wires After fixing the lamp components, connect the wires according to the markings of the live wire, the neutral wire and the ground wire.
Step 3. Adjust the angle After the light wire is connected, use an open-end wrench to adjust the projection angle of the light.
Step 4. Turn on the LED flood light After installation, please turn on the switch to test whether the light is on. If it is, the installation is complete.
Advanced Installation Guide for LED Flood Lights
If you want to make the floodlight more stable or prevent it from being carried away, you can fix the light on the wall or the ground.
Tools: open-end wrench, electric screwdriver, percussion drill, and hammer.
First, please follow the 4 simple steps above.
Step 5. Make a punch mark on the surface to be installed.
Step 6. Choose an appropriate drill bit, drill the hole with a percussion drill, and knock the expansion screw into the hole first.
Step 7. Take out the lamp components, align the mounting holes of the lamp bracket with the punched holes, and insert the self-tapping screws to fix the bracket with an electric screwdriver. If using expansion bolts, align the mounting holes of the bracket with the bolts, and tighten the nuts with an open-end wrench.
If you are buying an LED flood light with a motion sensor, perform additional steps after the standard step 2.
Extra steps. After the light wire is connected, adjust the lighting, time, and distance knobs on the sensor head, and adjust the projection angle of the light through an open-end wrench.
If you want to make the floodlight more stable or prevent it from being taken away, you can fix the light on the wall or the ground.
LED light decay problem
As a modern new type of energy-saving light source, LED lgihts is highly praised by customers because of its low energy consumption, long life, softer and environmentally friendly light compared to ordinary light sources. Light decay is a serious problem that LED lamps have to face. LED sometimes has continuous light decay, and light decay seriously affects the use of LED lamps. So, what causes the light decay phenomenon of LED? Generally speaking, there are two main factors for the light decay of LED:
1.The quality of LED products:
1.1 The LED chip used is not of good physical condition, and the brightness decays quickly, which causes more serious quality light decay problems.
1.2 There are defects in the production process, and the heat dissipation of the LED chip cannot be well derived from the PIN pin, which causes the high temperature of the LED chip to increase the chip attenuation.
LED light decay caused by quality problems is irreversible. Although such LED lights are also environmentally friendly products, they also cause extreme waste to a certain extent. The behavior of cutting corners and deceiving consumers with shoddy goods should be vigorously rectified, and the market environment will be better.
2. Use conditions:
2.1. The LED is driven by constant current, and some LEDs are driven by voltage, which makes the LED excessive attenuation.
2.2 The driving current is greater than the rated driving conditions.
In fact, there are many reasons for the light decay of LED products, but the most critical one is the heat problem. Although many manufacturers pay no attention to the problem of heat dissipation in secondary products, the light decay degree of these secondary LED products will be more LED products that pay attention to heat dissipation are higher. The thermal resistance of the LED chip itself, the influence of silver glue, the heat dissipation effect of the substrate, and the glue and gold wire are also related to light decay.
Main factors affecting light decay
Factors that affect the quality of LED lamps and light decay: First of all, what kind of white LED light to choose. This is very important. The quality of the LED white light can be said to be a very important factor. Secondly, the working environment temperature of LED lamp beads.
According to the aging data of a single white LED light, if only one white LED light is on and working, and at the same time, the ambient temperature is 30 degrees, then the temperature of the bracket when a single white LED light is working will not be More than 45 degrees. At this time, the life of this LED will be ideal.
If there are 100 white LED lights working at the same time, and the interval between them is only 11.4mm, then the temperature of the brackets of the white LED lights around the stack may not exceed 45 degrees, but those in the middle of the stack The white LED light may reach a high temperature of 65 degrees. At this time, the LED lamp bead is a test. Then, the white LED lights gathered in the middle will have a faster light decay in theory, while the white LED lights around the pile will have a slower light decay.
Third, the working electrical parameter design of LED lamp beads. According to the experimental results, the lower the driving current of the LED white lamp, the smaller the heat emitted, of course, the smaller the brightness. According to the survey, in the design of LED solar lighting circuit, the driving current of LED is generally only 5-10mA.
For products with a huge number of lamp beads used in lamps, such as those with more than 500 or more, the driving current is generally only 10-15mA, while the driving current of general public LED application lighting is only 15-18mA. The current is designed to be above 20mA.
The experimental results also show that under the driving current of 14mA, and the cover is airtight, the air temperature inside reaches 71 degrees.
Low-decay products have zero luminous decay per thousand hours and 3% luminous decay in 2000 hours. This shows that this low-decay LED white light has reached its maximum when used in such an environment. Kind of damage. Because the aging board used for aging has no heat dissipation function, the heat generated when the LED is working is basically unable to be conducted to the outside.
