Philips LED Street lamps

Philips has put up the first street lamps that use light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which last four times longer than normal street lighting, the Dutch electronics group said on Friday. With 50,000 light hours, LED lamps do not have to be changed for 12 years when lit for an average 11 to 12 hours a day.

Until now, LEDs were used as indicators on electronic goods, bicycles and cars, but technical developments have made them so bright they can now be used for any normal lighting situation.

Gas-filled streetlamps last an average 12,000 hours, and replacing them is costly and also hampers traffic, especially in hard-to-reach places such as tunnels.

LED streetlamps are twice as expensive as current street lighting with a similar design, but this is compensated for by the longer lifespan, Philips product manager Bram Lansink said.

That means a pretty good cost savings to any city that goes that way in replacements, and probably power too. I think LED’s is one technology that is only going to be seen in more and more markets as time passes.

    Theoretically LEDs should be easier to control as far as light direction as well. If these can limit ambient light emissions, it’ll make a lot of environmentalists happy.

  2. Thad Beier says

    It would be interesting to see what the energy cost is, though, of these LED replacement bulbs. The previous big rollout of LEDs was for the replacement of incandescent traffic signals. This was a huge win in energy efficiency as well as life — as the LEDs are inherently narrow-band — so you don’t have to throw away 75% of the light to get a green traffic signal. This win is on top of the fact that LEDs are significantly more efficient than incandescent bulbs.

    But, gas streetlights are an order of magnitude more energy efficient than incandescent lights. From what I have seen so far, the current gas discharge lights are still significantly more efficient at producing (ugly) light than LEDs are. In these days of increasing energy awareness, it would really surprise me if people move to a less efficient solution.

    And as far as light pollution goes — the narrow bandwidth of sodium light is a saving grace for astronomical light pollution. You can relatively easily filter out that narrow frequency band. A broader spectrum LED light, while prettier and giving better color rendition, would be a nightmare for astronomers.

    Now don’t get me wrong, I love LEDs — I think that they will be great for indoor lighting to replace incandescents and flourescents — but outdoor lighting just doesn’t seem like the right application for these marvelous devices.

    Respected Sir,

    Earlier we have some written communication,now I think it’s time to move forward.You are aware of my requirements still I want to explain it with more information which may help you.I have two plans in my mind by which we can work together.

    PLAN A:

    In wehich we can convert exsiting street lamps on solar power .We have to use existing poles and cabinets of the lamps. If you can provide me the LED street lamps ,solar panel,batteries,timers and other things required. Give me the list of these things and cost structure of it.In our existing street lamps we use 200W mercury lamps.Can your lamps fix in it or we have to change the whole cabinet,give me your views on it. Can you provide us technical support or some technitians for fitting for some initial days.What will be the cost for each lamps to convert on solar (incl. lamps, batteries,panel,timer ,holder and other required things).

    PLAN B:

    I think convertion of existing system on solar power will be more expensive .So that we can use your LED lamps on electric energy.Your lamps consume less energy may be 5 -6 Watt, which is very less (40 times) than our existing lamps.

    We can send you the hlder use for street lamps by post.From these holders can you manufacture some adapter or suchthings in which your lamps can get fix.As people use low consumption lamp in India . IN India we 220 volt supply. You have to desine device which will fix in the holder and step down the voltage upto the amount which is required for your lamps.

    holder —-> adapter> lamps

    It is very fisible plan .It can give us huge marke in INdia Right now I have a customer who is ready to purchase 6000 Lamps.

    This is just a beginning. Initially you have to take some effort as you are not aware of our existing lamps and other things. Onces you get it then i will look after the whole job of marketing .IN India we can get tremendous reasponse.I am talking with few authorities and they are interested in it.But as i do not have technical background so i can not tell them much about this project. But if you help me in it initially then i can give you monthaly sell of 5000 lamps.

    Please forward me all details i have asked for and other paper material on my postal address as well as on my email ID as I spend my most of time traveling.

    Then if possible send your officer to India, I can introduce him with few customer who can place the order in thousands of lamps.

    reply me as early as possible.

    My Name is omer Ikram-ul-Haq
    and student of 3rd Year Electrical Engg. in pakistan.
    I am working on LED street panels And there feasibility in long run. Will you please help me I want to know some parameters of Philips LED Street lamps? This can help you also market your product as new street lights are to be installed in my university after my final report.
    I will be very thankful to you if you provide me with the following parameters
    as i cant open the site link given above

    Working Voltage
    Lumins per watt
    Cost per fixture
    any other parameter which you think can help me out


  7. says

    Not sure where this comment is going but encouraged by the interest this webpage is given by people all over the world. Now that Philips has come out with commercial street lamp using LED, the question is at what price is this being marketed and where is it manufacutered. If correct sales person can be identifies then further discussion can be carried out to work on a ecomomical package for the world market. I am a bit concerned of the comment from Tad Beier that it is not a cost efficient solution even with solar power.

  8. David Cheung says

    I want to know how much energy can LED street lamps be saved when compared with incandescent street lamps. Do you have any statistical/test reports published on such matters? I need some real examples and name of users.

    Thank you

    Greeting guys.
    For LED light,the LED chip lighting effect is not such a serious problem now.And the biggest problem we come across during the sales work is the price.For example,a T8 600mm traditional three primary colours fluorescent tube,the retail price of Philips is only 1$~2$ in China,but the T8 LED tube may cost us more than 20$ per piece.The price brings much difficult for the LED light’s popularity.

    Here in China Nanker,we are changing this situation,a 160W LED street light only takes us 350$~370$.This is really a good news for our partners,and in addition ,we are trying to cut the raw material cost ,improve the quality all the time.It’s believed that LED light will really enter into every family and our life in the near future.
