Beat the Heat with LED Signage
As digital signage becomes more popular as a tool to attract buyers, make announcements, and convey relevant information to the public, more facilities appear to outside to attract the attention of commuters, buyers and other passers-by. Outdoor advertising is expected to be nearly $ 51 billion by 2020, and most of this growth is in digital signage. This means that digital signage solutions need to be durable in the face of extreme temperatures, especially high heat. Fortunately, the LEDs correspond to the bill.
The temperature is 100 ° F or more during a third of the year in Phoenix, Arizona, the hottest temperature ever recorded being 122 ° F. So, if you live in Phoenix, or in any Another city where temperatures can get very hot, you will need an outdoor digital signage that can withstand such stifling temperatures. Believe it or not, the winter sun is even harder on digital signs. The foggy summer sky can reduce UV rays, while the cool, clear winter sun lets everything through and can really warm up a screen.
Most lighting systems produce their own heat, forcing you to turn off the system and wait until it cools down before you can clean it. With gas or glass tubes, you need to be concerned about leaks and breaks. Fluorescent lamps also work poorly at low temperatures. LEDs, however, withstand very high and low temperatures, do not produce their own heat, have a long life, a higher brightness and are effective and easy to clean.
Because LEDs do not produce their own heat, you can place LED signage in places where heating from conventional sources would cause problems. The last thing you want to do is place a warm light near flammable objects like textiles, not to mention the foods you want to keep cool. Since LEDs do not produce their own heat, they are less likely to be in an environment where they overheat, as if they were outside during the hottest summer days in Phoenix.
LEDs are an excellent outdoor signage solution because of their heat resistance. Standard electronic components are not suitable for extreme temperatures unless they are designed from the ground up to do it. The average digital display works best between 32 ° F and 102 ° F. But what if you’re in International Falls, Minnesota, where the January average does not exceed 15 ° F? Or in Phoenix in the heart of summer? For LED digital display systems, these extreme temperatures are not a problem.
