Are all LED lamps equal? Here's how to get the best performance

Are you thinking of retrofitting old halogen lamps or even in enhancing the performance of existing LED lamps?

There is no denying LED lighting offers many benefits over traditional incandescent light - including saving power. But it is important to understand that not all LED lamps are equal.

Paul Bartley from Dynamic Marine was asked by a client to look at options of improving the interior lighting in a new vessel. Although originally fitted with LED downlights at the factory, the owner was not very happy with how bright they were.

Paul was well aware of the differences in LED products available, having worked with Hella Marine previously, and knew the New Zealand designed and manufactured EuroLED lamps from Hella marine were not only fit for purpose, being a direct replacement and easy to install, they also had the best performance in regards to actual output and the quality of light.

Thanks to some 'before and after' photos you can clearly see the difference that simply swapping LED downlights for higher quality lamps can make.

Hella marine EuroLED 75 lamps offer exceptional output from the latest LEDs. This performance, combined with a smooth diffused lens, produces a broad and even illumination to really light up interior and exterior spaces.

Because the LEDs used in the EuroLED 75 lamps have a high colour rendering index (CRI) they also enhance the colours of fabrics, varnishes and most importantly people with natural warm tones. This effect dramatically improves the ambiance on board, making the passengers feel more comfortable.

Another benefit of the EuroLED 75 lamps is you can also fit these in interior or exterior applications, wet or dry locations as they are completely sealed - IP67 rated. This means internal electronics are well protected to ensure a long life.

Available in White or Warm White LED and screw or spring mount options and supported with a leading 5-year warranty for complete peace of mind. For more details on the EuroLED 75 range visit www.hellamarine.com.
