Instead of asking “What LED will replace the incandescent we were previously using?”, lighting designers should be asking themselves “What light output am I trying to achieve?”, according to a recent whitepaper from Kopp Glass. Titled “How to Design with LEDs”, the article shows how the ultimate performance of an LED light is determined by different components of the lighting system, including the optical lens design, LED selection, array design, material selection, and thermal management.
This informative article covers a wide range of design issues including:
- Optical lens material selection,
- LED selection
- Avoiding common mistakes when selecting LEDs
- LED array design
- Thermal management
- Using an iterative design process for optimized results
