LED underwater light installation considerations

Aug 23, 2018

The LED underwater light is a underwater light produced by LED technology. Compared with traditional underwater lights, LED underwater lights are more energy-saving and environmentally friendly, and the lights are more varied and decorative, and they are widely used in various landscape lighting systems. However, as a manufacturer of LED lamps, some problems in the installation of LED underwater lights require special attention.

1. LED underwater lights should be powered by DC constant current power supply. Under the constant current power supply control, the forward voltage drop of the LED wall washer, LED flood light, LED underwater light, and LED underground light will become smaller as the temperature of the LED chip increases. This is the case for the LED underwater light. It doesn't have much impact. However, if it is a constant voltage drive, the LED underwater light chip will continue to increase with the increase of temperature. In severe cases, the LED underwater light may even be burnt. Therefore, the LED underwater light should be powered by a DC constant current power supply.

2, need to do anti-static measures. LED underwater light products should adopt certain anti-static measures during processing and installation. For example, the workbench should be grounded, workers should wear anti-static clothing, anti-static ring, and anti-static gloves, etc. Anti-static ion fan, also ensure that the air humidity during installation is about 65%, so as to avoid the air being too dry to generate static electricity. In addition, the antistatic ability of LEDs of different quality grades is also different, and the anti-static ability of LED underwater lamps with high quality grades is stronger.

3, pay attention to the sealing of LED products. No matter what kind of LED lighting products, as long as they are used outdoors, they are faced with the problem of moisture and sealing. This is especially true for LED underwater lights. Poor handling of sealing problems will directly affect the service life of LED underwater light products.
