Central Industrial Supply
Advances in light emitting diode (LED) technology have made LEDs a viable option for energy efficient illumination. Light fixtures utilizing LEDs were designed and prototyped to replace incandescent factory task lights and fluorescent stairway lights at a Central Industrial Supply factory in Wuxi, China. Emphasis was placed on LED selection, circuit design, and heat dissipation. Energy savings of 85.2% for the factory task lights and 38.9% for the stairway lights were achieved with a combined payback period of 2.5 years.
