How Does Packaging Affect LED Lighting?
LED packages are simply the outer packaging, i.e. the assemblies that are home to LED chips. These are crucial LED components, allowing the actual light emitted to stay connected with the energy source, while safeguarded in a secure unit. Other purposes include:
- Shielding the LED chips and the wiring from any hazards in the surroundings.
- Defending the chip using high quality phosphors and silicone resin.
- Ensuring continued flexibility and standardization of future lighting products.
There are a number of different LED package types used for modern industrial LED lights. And of course, each of them have their own advantages and disadvantages. If you are buying LEDs for your office, business premises, or factory settings, we can help you select the right LED bulb, along with the perfect packaging for your needs.
How Does Packaging Affect LED Lights?
As manufacturers of high quality industrial LED lighting, we consider a number of factors when deciding which LED packaging to use. These factors include:
- The footprint of the resulting LED bulb
- Heat dissipation ability
- Emission angles
The different types of packaging and applications have their own individual requirements. Here are the most commonly used LED packaging types used in industrial LED lights:
SMDs (Surface Mount Devices)
Perhaps, the most popular packaging method, SMD-LED lighting, is often the preferred choice because of its excellent versatility. The SMD-LED is simply mounted to the circuit board surface. These are mostly used in LED strip lights.
High Power Packaging
This one is designed to deliver the most power to a 1 to 3 Watt LED; in return, getting from them hundreds of lumens at a time. Applications include different types of lighting, from spotlights to reading lamps—pretty much anything that requires plenty of bright light.
Chip On Board Modules
COB (chip on board) LED lights feature multiple LED chips mounted on a PCB and secured within a phosphor epoxy mix. This packaging gives LEDs the power to deliver more than 10,000 lumens, and comfortably reach hundreds of watts at a time. The COB LEDs work very well as high bay flood lights, etc.
