The commercial vehicle market is moving towards a blanket use of LED technology for new builds.
Here at UKAP we have always championed the use of LED’s within the commercial vehicle market and during 2014 we saw a significant increase in their use. Both on new builds and retrofitting to older vehicles. There is one particular area where we have seen a dramatic upturn in popularity and that is LED work lamps. Part of the auxiliary lighting section the work lamp has traditionally been a halogen bulb but in recent years LED has been preferred by body builders, the military and people in charge of specifying. Using LED work lamps has a range of benefits:
- LED’s drastically reduce the amount of wasted energy as the diodes don’t get hot to the touch like a traditional bulb lamp.
- There is no warm up or cool down time required so there is a lower power consumption.
- The output is not only high powered but the beam can be concentrated which leads to safer working environments.
- The light given off is closer to daylight than any other type of lamp which is perfect for low light conditions and working at night.
- You are less likely to have to replace an LED work lamp as the diodes are sealed for protection against water and dirt ingress.
- Compact sized high powered diodes mean the LED work lamp is smaller and sleeker and therefore less likely to be damaged.
On the whole we predict a huge rise in the next five years in the use of LED work lamps within the commercial vehicle industry.
