What are the factors to consider when selecting LED lighting for indoors and outdoors purposes?

Given recent LED technology improvements and the drive toward greater energy efficiency, the LED lighting industry—including general illumination from commercial refrigeration to outdoor area lighting—is experiencing explosive growth. As manufacturers expand their offerings or enter the market, it is important they choose reliable, long-life LED power supplies to achieve optimal lighting performance.

In many ways the factors influencing the choice of an LED power supply (LED driver) are similar to those for most other applications. However, some application-specific factors require careful consideration.Purchasing professionals should first review available choices and how they might fit in various lighting applications. Next, buyers should consider reliability and life, as it is critical to understand the design capabilities of potential suppliers along with their ability to provide support over the product’s long life.
