REVEN-LED lamps as an alternative to conventional fluorescent light tubes and reduce electricity costs by 50 – 70%. If for example, the lighting is not carried out with 50 conventional fluorescent tubes in a large commercial kitchen with a ventilated ceiling, but the lighting would be alternatively done with modern LED systems with the latest technology, the return of the additional investment for the LEDs is just 2.5 years. This requires the use of modern LED modules. These modules of the latest LED generation are robust against vibrations, can be dimmed infinitely and are very suitable for high switching frequencies. The electricity costs can be reduced by about 50 – 70% compared to fluorescent tubes, because the LEDs consume less electricity. Due to the maintenance-free operation over many years, an upgrade is worthwhile despite the higher acquisition costs. In 5 years, savings of up to € 20,000 can be achieved in such a ventilation ceiling!
Further advantages are: REVEN-LEDs offer their full light output immediately after switching on, without flickering and ensure a very good color reproduction. The technology has a significantly lower CO2 emission than conventional light sources and has no UV and no infrared components. Using a standard DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface) driver, a sensible light management is easily realised, because each LED lamp can be individually controlled.
Attention should also be paid to Regulation (EC) No 245/2009 and Regulation No 347/2010 laying down requirements for the environmentally design of lighting products. These regulations have been adopted by the European Commission as an implementation measure of the Ecodesign Directive, and the use of most conventional fluorescent lamps and ballasts is no longer permitted under this regulation!
