The direction of the LED lighting product standardization
LED lighting there are many huge difference with the traditional lighting. In the field of traditional lighting, for example, the life of the light source is generally much shorter than the life of the lamps and lanterns, so in the process of the service life of the lamps and lanterns of the actual general to replace the light source. Therefore, in the traditional lamps and lanterns in the definition of the "lamps and lanterns is does not contain the light source. Although some of the light source and controller components have performance standards, energy efficiency standards, but in traditional lamps and lanterns is not performance standards, international and domestic standards of energy efficiency. In theory in the tradition of the standard level has nothing to do with performance and energy saving lighting lamps and lanterns, can not consider energy saving. Definition of "has nothing to do with the lamps and lanterns of lighting energy saving does not represent the use of traditional light source of lamps and lanterns is energy conservation as a whole. It seems that many in the lighting industry lamps and lanterns is very energy consumption was associated with the status quo. For example, on the one hand, many traditional too much emphasis on adornment sex of lamps and lanterns, the forward part of the light emitted by shade or absorbed by itself of lamps and lanterns, the efficiency of lamps and lanterns is very low, energy waste is very serious. On the other hand, due to traditional lighting lamps and lanterns is not performance and energy efficiency standard specification, so many companies just simply copied, cause the overall low run traditional lighting lamps and lanterns industry.
In contrast to the traditional lighting, LED lamps and lanterns on principle or normal use, the service life of the LED light is generally much longer than the life of the parts of lamps and lanterns, so in the process of the service life of the LED lamps and lanterns of the actual general component or LED module is likely to be replaced. As at present in the actual use is more of the LED drive power supply such parts failure instead of the LED light source.
In principle, the reliability of the electronics components is a concern. But, both belong to the electronic products and similar computer to control LED driver power supply switch power supply is very mature. Soon in the future, as technology advances, the LED lamps and lanterns on the life level of each part should be can achieve synchronization practicability of long life, namely in LED lamps and lanterns of life period do not need to change any part of the expected.
Therefore, the present stage for the starting point of standardization problem some confusing or difficult to determine which is better. On the one hand, in the short term, the LED lighting lamps and lanterns and LED light source in the technology is not mature, but rapid development stage, many products have the quality problem of one kind or another. Therefore, the starting point of performance standards should be modular components of lamps and lanterns, some parts can be easily replaced after the failure parts, without causing the lamps and lanterns is not available. From modular starting point is a very difficult to set standards, but it takes a long time to study, discuss, negotiate, and validation. Now according to modularization design and production of LED lighting products are mainly product size bigger, for example, some companies LED street lamp. But it can only be implemented by the enterprise change, far cannot achieve exchange between enterprises. Modular standards also LED lighting products research, but there is no standard in the true sense. On the other hand, in the long run, a lot of similar electronic products life and reliability is very good, and technology develops very fast. The future life and reliability of components of LED lamps and lanterns should be able to keep synchronization with normal service life of the LED light source, the whole life to reach tens of thousands of hours of lamps and lanterns. Can use 6, 7 years or longer without failure. Therefore, from this perspective, the standards should be considered the lamps and lanterns is does not need to replace any parts of integration design and production instead of modular, so as to save more resources. At present, all has a standard should be the integration. This is two completely opposite route standards. Of course, due to the difference of technical ability and strength, enterprise products have very big disparity. Which kind of standardized starting point better, more practical, it is hard to say.
The standard is usually a minimum with a nature of market access threshold. Development time is not long, therefore, for the LED lighting products, especially in the international and domestic standardization of traditional lamps and lanterns has no concern, no requirements of performance and energy efficiency standards, LED lighting and there exists a big difference with the traditional lighting, LED lamps and lanterns of various technical performance index and parameters and has not been verified effectively, makes the setting performance standards and standards of energy efficiency into a new, complex subject. These features for the LED lighting must develop a performance and energy efficiency standards, can adapt and promote LED lighting, rapid and healthy development.
In general, the development of technology is relatively stable, relatively mature stage to develop a relatively perfect product standards, standards formulated or revised cycle and the process is relatively long. The early stages of the LED lighting is still in the high speed development, at the present stage to develop a complete LED lighting, especially the performance and energy efficiency standards is very difficult
