Dec. 21, 2010 — Although I have shown off my home LED lamps several times, I still get queries such as why is the LED light better than traditional light? For such folks: One, LED light is directional, making it suitable for spotlights as well as flashlights/torches, etc. Also, LEDs do not need any warm up time life the CFLs. Next, they are really energy efficient, have extremely small carbon footprint and, well, longer lifetimes.
One such great example I can think of is the Pollux, a fashionable and functional LED panel light series developed by Taiwan-based GlacialLight, a subdivision of GlacialTech.
The Pollux series LED panel lights are suitable for replacing the traditional tube lights in your homes or even the grill lights. This seems to be an ideal replacement for the fluorescent tube light. As per the supplier, it provides up to 45 percent less power consumption as compared with fluorescent lamps.
The Pollux LED panel lights feature very evenly distributed "cool white" light-emitting diodes (LEDs) covering the surface for really easy on the eyes light. With this, GlacialLight has again proved its capability and relevance by adding this newest innovation to its already long and distinguished list of products using LED technology.
The Pollux series consumes only 50 W of power, but provides 3400 lm of light. These light panels are bright, energy-efficient and can be used in a variety of indoor settings. These are also suitable for commercial and industrial applications, as well as for residential use. The Pollux LED panel lights can be recessed or hung, can be placed on ceilings or walls, and provide users with exceptional versatility.
According to GlacialLight, the Pollux LED panel lights contain no hazardous chemicals, such as mercury, or harmful radiation emissions such as UV or IR.
Specifications include 50 W power consumption, 120° beam angle, 6000 K CCT, color rendering index (CRI) of 70, and 3400 lm luminous flux. It measures 600 × 600 × 13 mm and is said to have a lifespan of 30,000 hours. The Pollux LED panel lights feature an elegant structure for extreme heat dissipation, as well as a slim and low profile design. RoHS compliant, the panel’s power consumption is only 42 W.
The design of LED lighting products – performed by GlacialPower, GlacialTech, and GlacialLight in the GlacialTech family – is based on three core technologies: electrical design (LED drivers), mechanical design (cooling devices), and optical design (lamp holders), respectively.
