What Are The Advantages Of LED Street Light?

Sally Liu


In the past, the main lighting sources of urban road lighting are china sodium street lights. With the rapid development of China’s economic construction and the continuous expansion of roads, the demand for street lamps is increasing. Now the china sodium street light fixtures have gradually been replaced by LED street light. Why now more and more people prefer and more willing to purchase LED street lights? As a professional LED street light supplier for more than 17 years, ZGSM is going to share you the advantages of street LED lights in terms of energy saving and environmental protection.

Advantages of LED Street Light

Protect The Eyes

LED street light fixtures use LED constant current operation, which converts AC power directly into DC power tp support LED street lights working. LED street lights start fast and have no flicker, which can better protect the eyes and will not cause damage to the eyes.

No Mosquito Troubles

LED street lights do not produce ultraviolet light, infrared light and other radiation, there will be no mosquitoes around the light source, no harmful substances such as mercury, and less heat.

Less Fever

LED street light fixtures do not generate a lot of heat energy like traditional lamps. They not only convert all electrical energy into light energy without causing waste of energy, but also won’t have impact on the environment and climate warming.

No Noise

LED street lighting fixtures do not generate noise and are ideal for use with precision electronics.

Environmentally Friendly Lamps

Economical LED street lights do not contain a large amount of mercury vapor like traditional fluorescent lamps, and if they are broken, they will volatilize into the atmosphere. The LED tube does not use mercury at all, and the LED street lamp does not contain lead, which protects the environment. What’s more, most of the components of LED lamps can also be recycled, which can better save resources.

Strong And Reliable

The LED street light body itself uses epoxy resin instead of the traditional glass, which is firmer and firmer. Even if the LED is on the floor, the LED will not be easily damaged and can be used with confidence. The circuit power supply is all high-quality components, each LED has a separate overcurrent protection, no need to worry about damage. For example, ZGSM K series LED street lights use full die-casting aluminum housing, high-end Inventronics/Meanwell/Philips/Osram drivers and Philips Lumileds chips with a lifespan of more than 100,000 hours. ZGSM provide 7 years warranty to K series.

Good Versatility

LED street lights are the same size as traditional fluorescent lamps and can replace traditional lamps. Many LED street lamps even have smaller size than traditional HPS and fluorescent lamps, which could be installed to more places and can save the freight cost during delivery.

Adjustable Voltage

LED street light fixtures can illuminate within a certain range of voltages, while conventional fluorescent lamps are illuminated by the high voltage released by the rectifier, so they cannot be illuminated when the voltage is lowered.

Long Life Saving

LED street lamps consume less than one-third of the power of traditional fluorescent lamps, HPS lamps and LPS lamps, and their lifetime is 10 times that of traditional fluorescent lamps. It is basically the same as the brightness of traditional fluorescent lamps. The normal service life is more than 100,000 hours, and the power saving is as high as 70% or more. It can be used without any replacement, reducing labor costs, and is more suitable for occasions that are difficult to replace.

Rich In Color

LED Street Lights could choose a wider range of correlated color temperature(CCT), which is ranging from 2200K to 6500K.( Known as Warm White, White, Daylight, Cool White and so on). LED street lights with different color temperatures can be used in applications with different atmospheres. LED lights could also have different colors like green, red, yellow, amber, which could be used as LED traffic lights and LED stage lights.

The Light Decay Is Small

The light decay of less than 3% in one year, still meets the road requirements after 10 years of use, and the high-pressure sodium light decays, which has dropped by more than 30% in a year or so. Therefore, the LED street lamp is designed to use power. Can be lower than high pressure sodium lamps.

Easy To Install

No need to add cables without rectifiers, etc., directly installed on the pole or nested the original light shell; the design can be lower than the high pressure sodium lamps.


It is by virtue of the above advantages that LED street lamps have completely suppressed the traditional sodium lamps, and are gradually squeezing the sodium lamps out of the lighting market.

If the lighting application is well-designed, the usage of LEDs does not result in increased light pollution. On the contrary, using well-designed LED street lights ensures that scatter and glare are efficiently controlled while having a significantly higher impact on decreasing high angle brightness and light pollution.

Color temperature is expressed in Kelvin and is a mathematical calculation based on a light source’s Spectral Power Distribution (SPD). It enables a large range of unique color combinations. Different combinations of Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) and Color Rendering Indexes (CRI) are available in LED lighting, which can have different impacts on eyesight. The color temperature is measured in degrees Kelvin, with a warm light (yellowish) being around 2700K, neutral white being approximately 4000K, and cool white (bluish) being around 5000K or more.

Protecting the public with lighting that promotes alert drivers and a safe environment may be the greatest priority in many outdoor applications, to explain why it’s necessary. In those circumstances, the suggested color temperature is used, taking into account the space and the people who will be using it.

LED tunnel lights come with several notable features that make them ideal for tunnel illumination. They are highly durable, with a robust construction that can withstand harsh environmental conditions. LED tunnel lights also offer instant illumination, without any warm-up time. Furthermore, they are compatible with smart lighting control systems, allowing for easy integration and efficient management.

Certainly! In a case study conducted by the Department of Energy, a tunnel in California replaced its traditional lighting system with LED tunnel lights. The LED lights resulted in a 63% reduction in energy consumption and a significant decrease in maintenance costs. The improved visibility also contributed to a reduction in accidents, making the tunnel safer for commuters.
