The marine world is completely different from the land. With no roads, and limited navigational markers outlining major channels, fog, and other disadvantageous circumstances, it is challenging for mariners to navigate and reach their destination. Therefore, Self-contained LED lights become the saviour for mariners to safely navigate the vessel.
Aside from navigational factors, these LED lights have several benefits and advantages, such as:
When it comes to energy efficiency, LED marine lanterns are far superior to traditional bulbs. With the rising prices of energy and the hostile environment on the ocean, saving energy is essential. And these LED bulbs reduce energy emissions and are a lifesaver for mariners in the middle of the sea.
Self-contained LED lights last much longer than traditional halogen or incandescent bulbs, which are required when you are sailing the high seas. For long hauls, which last over a month or more, using lights that have a longer life span is safer, as there may not be a way to change the lights in the middle of the ocean.
Another advantage of using LED Navigation lanterns in the waters of Singapore is that lights using LED do not emit heat. Unlike traditional bulbs, LED bulbs remain at a low temperature even after being used for long hours. So, if there is a situation where you need to remove it due to whatsoever reasons, you can safely do that.
LED marine lanterns are more robust compared to traditional bulbs with fragile filaments that snap. They can endure the harsh marine weather and don't break easily. These LEDs are made of compound semiconductor materials that are sturdier and less prone to damage.
Depending on the semiconductor materials used, LED lights can emit a wide range of colours. Moreover, there is no colour coating on the LED bulbs that can impact the brightness. Hence, you have better visibility of the surroundings while navigating the sea.
One of the best attributes of LED lights is that they are more sturdy and robust. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about spending too much on changing or repairing the lights, which can also lead to waste.
Fluorescent bulbs consist of mercury, which can be harmful for wildlife and ecosystems. However, with self-contained LED lights, they contain no such toxic elements and are better for the environment.
LED can withstand cold weather, making them suitable for outdoor lighting and use in cold and freezing environments. In contrast, incandescent and fluorescent bulbs are less efficient and may need frequent replacements in cold environments.
LED navigation lights work smoothly even when the voltage is low. So, it’s far less likely to suffer a harmful electric shock if the lighting system is damaged or exposed to the elements. Voltage systems used to power traditional lighting generate around 120 volts, which can be fatal if any user comes into contact accidentally.
Self-constrained LED lights turn on instantly and provide immediate, bright light regardless of how often they are switched on and off. This feature is beneficial for businesses that operate around the clock or require quick illumination during early morning hours, offering reassurance and convenience.
