The population growth and the overall increase in living standards in third world countries resulted in increasing level of energy consumption.

Every year, more and more resources are required to provide cities with electricity, and the capacity of conventional power plants is not enough.
To reduce electricity consumption, many leading companies are testing and implementing new technologies that are designed to reduce energy consumption. Most of the expenses fall to lighting, so it is logical that it is given the highest priority.
Saifon Technologies believes that switching from usual halogen lamps to LED lighting is one of the ways to solve energy problems.
PCBs in LED industry
Of course, each lamp will differ slightly depending on the manufacturer and model, but LED lamps have a standard configuration that manufacturers keep:
How does a LED lamp work?
— Light-emitting diodes. Semiconductor devices that generate light when an electric current passes through them;
— Driver. Required for steady operation of diodes during electrical voltage surges;
— Base;
— Diffuser. A kind of filter that can be in the form of a transparent heat-resistant hemisphere or a mirror surface;
— Aluminum PCB. It has light chips soldered. In addition to the main function, the PCB also works as a radiator, since the LED device gets very hot during operation;
— Aluminum radiator.
Why use an aluminum PCB?
For LED lamps, PCBs with a metal base are used. And we can say that the aluminum base is obviously the best option.
LED lamps emit a lot of heat, which, if not dissipated, reduces the service life of the lighting device and causes degradation of the diode. Diode degradation is a process when LEDs lose their power during operation. It happens much faster unless aluminum PCBs are used.
A printed circuit board made of aluminum dissipates heat and, passing it through itself, transfers it to a larger radiator or a special cooling fan, if provided by the design.

At the same time, in soldering, such a PCB is no different from boards made of other materials. The only difference is that manual soldering will not be possible, since the heat from the soldering iron will instantly dissipate over the surface. It is the property of the material. This is its main feature.

A feature that allows to cool the lamps even with the most powerful diodes. Lamps with such PCB live much longer than those where aluminum is not used.
In the industry now, technical characteristics of lighting are of much more importance than appearance. The following parameters are the most essential:
Modern industrial lighting
— Low light ripple level;
— Resistance of the device to wear and vibration;
— Reliability;
— Long service life;
— Electrical and fire safety;
— Device efficiency.

LED lamps with aluminum PCBs meet all these requirements. Saifon Technologies manufactures aluminum PCBs for any task with exclusive configurations of a customer, if necessary. Of course, diode lamps are initially not the cheapest option, but because of their durability and resistance to the external environment, this is the most profitable option in the long term.
Now, the demand for diode lighting is constantly growing, especially in industry.
Use of LEDs in industry
If you compare them with conventional lamps, you can find out that the electricity consumption of the latter is 5-6 times higher. If we talk about industrial scale, this is a huge difference.

Another advantage of LED lighting is that their service life is 7-10 years. Such lamps do not require replacement lamps during maintenance. This is a huge advantage when installing lighting in hard-to-reach places.

Another important thing is the color accuracy. This is an important factor, for example, in medicine. Since diodes are not externally heated as they are constantly cooling from the inside, they are fire safe.
