Equivalences and energy saving among traditional luminaires and LEDs
Table of equivalences for interior lighting and exterior lighting
The total consumption of halogens is the sum of its own consumption more than the transformer and whose consumption being 6-12W, so in the majority of cases consumption of power adapter is far superior to the own light bulb.
Fluorescent tubes and the G24 and the rated consumption (W) can consume approximately 10-20% more because of its performance with the ballast to choke.
Equivalencies and this comparative savings are approximate. The data are heavily dependent on variables such as angle of lighting, temperature of color or microchip led that incorporates the luminaire.
A lumen is the unit used to express the amount of light that is capable of generating a light bulb. The problem is that the non-union manufacturers does not allow to unify criteria so we can have some other problem. To learn about lumens generated by a light bulb LED there is a small formula:.
Real lumens = to the number of Watts x 70.
A value being 70 medium that it matches most of the light bulbs on the market. Therefore, a 12W LED bulb would provide a light output of 840 lm. That it would replace the light generated by an incandescent bulb of 60W. As you can see generating the same amount of light saving 48w for each incandescent bulb that we replace.
Incandescent fluorescent halogen LED
25W 8W 3W-30W
14W 8W 50W 60W
17W 12W-60W 75W
With this table, you can have more or less a clear idea of the Watts that must have a LED bulb to replace one incandescent, halogen or fluorescent light.
10 years of life and maintenance-free
Take control of your expenses.
-They last up to 40,000 hours.
-They offer an average life of 10 years professional models (based on 4,000 h/year).
-They reduce significantly the costs of maintenance and replacement.
