If you are in an area that is susceptible to temperature fluctuations, some LED lights can help. These high-temperature LED lights have been tested to withstand the harshest of environments and can provide reliable lighting for various industrial applications.

LEDs are more resistant to heat than incandescent bulbs or CFLs. However, constant exposure to high temperatures can cause a decrease in their lifespans, known as “lumen depreciation.”

Low Temperature

LED lights can handle extreme changes in temperature better than traditional bulbs. They can shine brighter, use less power, and last longer.

Most traditional light bulbs rely on heat to keep working, so they will not work when the temperatures get cold. This is why it is important to upgrade to LEDs before winter arrives.

Since LEDs are semiconductor light sources, they perform better in cold environments than their counterparts. They also have better lumen output at lower temperatures because the thermal stress imposed on the driver and diode is less.

LEDs can be used in low-temperature areas, such as bathrooms or kitchens. Warm white LEDs are often preferred in these rooms because they create a softer, more pleasing glow. Cooler white LEDs, on the other hand, tend to be more clinical and sterile. They also do not produce as much heat and may have a higher CRI.

High Temperature

LED lighting is often used in high-temperature areas such as steel plants, foundries, paper mills, and power plant. These harsh environments can be difficult to maintain stable light output, causing lumen depreciation and reducing the lifespan of the LED lights.

However, a few LED lights have been designed to work well in these hot and uncomfortable environments. These LED lights are referred to as heat-resistant or high-temperature LEDs and they have the ability to work well above 70 deg C ambient temperature.

One of the main reasons that these lights can withstand such high temperatures is because of their housing system. The housing is made of aluminum material, which helps protect the LEDs and improves heat dissipation. It also has the ability to cool down the LEDs and driver, thereby reducing heat stress and prolonging the life of the LEDs.

Low Pressure

LEDs are a great lighting solution for many applications. They can be used for indoor and outdoor use as well as for parking lots and roadways.

LED lights can be purchased relatively cheaply compared to LPS and HPS bulbs (typically $10-$20 for a 100W equivalent bulb). They are also incredibly durable and virtually maintenance-free.

They also offer very high CRIs, which are good for illuminating color vision at night. This is important for various applications including sports arenas, gymnasiums, and warehouses.

However, there are some major disadvantages to using either LPS or HPS lamps.

Both low and high-pressure sodium lights emit waste heat which is a serious environmental issue. Additionally, both LPS and HPS lamps have a short delay in turn which means they need to be ignited before they can operate at a steady state.

High Pressure

For areas where the temperature can reach 70 degrees or more, LED lights offer higher efficacy and lower energy consumption than traditional HID and High-Pressure Sodium sources. Dialight’s DuroSite 70C series is designed for applications in ambient high-temperature environments, including steel mills, aluminum smelters, and power plants.

These LEDs also have an independent light board and driver module to achieve thermal independence, which contributes to better heat stress management. The thermal isolation of the drivers also helps to relieve the heat load on the LEDs, which can cause premature bulb failure if the LEDs are exposed to hot spots.

Like all High-Intensity Discharge lamps, HPS and LPS lamps emit light omnidirectionally (they can be directed by fixture housings or reflectors). This causes a significant amount of energy to be lost as heat emissions. Roughly 15% of the total emission is lost due to heat losses, which adds to the inefficiency and ineffectiveness of HPS and LPS lamps.
