Do not have to carry multiple flash tubes if you change over a fleet from a competitor.6LED BasicsWhy Should I Switch to LED?LEDs are solid-state electronics. As such they can withstand significantly more vibration than traditional light sources.
Solid-state electronics are those circuits or devices built entirely from solid materials and in which the electrons, or other charge carriers, are confined entirely within the solid material.
(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid_state_device)While solid-state can include crystalline, polycrystalline and amorphous solids and refer to electrical conductors, insulators and semiconductors, the building material is most often a crystalline semiconductor. Common solid-state devices include transistors, microprocessor chips, and DRAM. DRAM devices are used in computers, flash drives and more recently, solid state drives to replace mechanically rotating magnetic disc hard drives. A considerable amount of electromagnetic and quantum-mechanical action takes place within the device. The expression became prevalent in the 1950s and the 1960s, during the transition from vacuum tube technology to semiconductor diodes and transistors. More recently, the integrated circuit (IC), the light-emitting diode (LED), and the liquid-crystal display (LCD) have evolved as further examples of solid-state devices.In a solid-state component, the current is confined to solid elements and compounds engineered specifically to switch and amplify it. Current flow can be understood in two forms: as negatively-charged electrons, and as positively-charged electron deficiencies called electron holes or just "holes". In some semiconductors, the current consists mostly of electrons; in other semiconductors, it consists mostly of "holes". Both the electron and the hole are called charge carriers.For data storage, solid-state devices are much faster and more reliable but are usually more expensive. Although solid-state costs continually drop, disks, tapes, and optical disks also continue to improve their cost/performance ratio.The first solid-state device was the "cat's whisker" detector, first used in 1930s radio receivers. A whisker-like wire is placed lightly in contact with a solid crystal (such as a germanium crystal) in order to detect a radio signal by the contact junction effect. The solid-state device came into its own with the invention of the transistor in 1947.
7LED Basics What has changed with LEDs allowingfor more cost competitive products?Until recently white and blue light were the hardest color for LED manufacturers to produce bright enough for practical applications.Improved processes utilizing different chemical elements have driven up light output and driven down costs.Competition from more quality LED Manufacturers
8LED BasicsHow do I know what generation of LEDs ECCO products use?The term generation is only relevant within a manufacturers line.A gen 4 Cree brand LED may be brighter than a gen 8 Nichia. No standard exist to make the term generation a comparator between brands.9LED BasicsHow do I know what generation of LEDs our products use?Next generation doesnt necessarily mean brighter. ECCO can buy the next gen LED from a manufacturer in powers ranging from watt to 10 watt. 10LED BasicsHow do I know what generation of LEDs our products use?ECCO uses a variety of LEDs from manufacturers like; Cree, Nichia, LumiLED, & Osram with wattages ranging from to 10. Some products under development are exploring the use of 20 watt LEDs.
11LED BasicsNot all LEDs are created equal:A good LED product efficiently manages heatGood optics allow for the use of lower watt LEDs that generate less heatA product that poorly manages heat will become dimmer the longer it runs and shorten the LED life.Per the SAE Standard all ECCO warning lights are designed to maintain compliant light output while operating.
If heat dissipation is not managed well LED products will begin to dim within the first 5 to 10 minutes of operationPay attention when you are doing side by side comparisons with competitor product. Many of our competitors do not have efficient heat management system and their product will start to dim significantly.
