What Are The Factors Related To The Service Life Of Led Strip

- May 15, 2019-

LEDs are electrostatic sensitive components. If you do not take anti-static measures when repairing LED strips, it will burn out the LEDs and cause waste. Of course, the life of LED strips is not guaranteed.

The poor toughness of the copper wire or flexible circuit board of the LED strip leads to the breakage of the LED strip during bending and also affects the life of the LED strip.

Power supply factor, LED light strip is generally powered by constant voltage power supply (DC switching power supply), if the output of the power supply is unstable, or there is no surge protection, it will output unstable voltage and current when the external network voltage fluctuates. Leading to the operation of LED strips at non-standard voltages will also affect their useful life.

Since the LED is a constant current component, the LED lamps produced by different manufacturers have different constant current effects, and the life expectancy is different.

In addition to the most common poor heat dissipation, LED dead light or light decay according to the application experience, the cause of discoloration is also caused by the pollution of chemical substances in the manufacturing process, for the downstream application side, in addition to the proper heat dissipation solution In addition, in the process of assembly of the luminaire, or the chemical additives of the manufacturing process, it is necessary to avoid the so-called chemical incompatibility.

Incompatible VOCs in LED lighting can quickly damage any manufacturer's LEDs. This chemical incompatibility is often a local phenomenon that occurs at elevated temperatures and in sealed lamps with little or no air flow. After testing by the LED packaging factory, it is found that some chemicals that are known to easily affect the normal function of the LED, the user end is best to establish a comprehensive chemical incompatibility test evaluation system. With proper precautions, design and testing, the impact can be minimized or eliminated.
