LED spots light up art gallery in China
LEDs are being used to change the way art is viewed in China. Specifically, exhibits at Da An Art Gallery in Zhongshan City, China, are spotlighted by Z-Power LEDs from Seoul Semiconductor.
A benefit of LEDs is that they don’t emit ultraviolet radiation, so don’t require the filters used with traditional halogen and fluorescent lamps to protect the pictures.
The installation replaced 50W halogen lamps with 7.2W LED spotlights, which according to Seoul Semiconductor could have a 85% power saving.
The Z-Power LED P4 series used in the gallery spotlights has the colouring rending index of 93 indicating high level of natural expression of light colours, and high efficiency, which is optimal for lighting of museums and galleries.
The gallery is replacing the halogen lamps and fluorescent lamps with LEDs in a eco-initiative.
