How to maintain the LED street light after installation?

Led street light maintenance

We all know that LED street lamps have developed rapidly in recent years and have a certain favorable position in the street lamp market. The reason why LED street lamps can be combined with thousands of pets is not without reason. LED street lights have many advantages. They are efficient, energy-saving, environmentally friendly, long-lived, and fast-responding. Therefore, many urban lighting projects have replaced traditional street lights with LED street lights, which saves time and effort. If you want LED street lights to have a long service life, we must have regular maintenance. After installing the LED street lights, how do we maintain them? Let’s take a look at it:


1. Periodic inspection of the lamp head of the LED street light

First of all, we have to check the lamp head of the LED street lamp step by step to see if the lamp head is damaged or if there is any problem with the lamp bead. Some LED street lights often don’t light or the light is dark, most of the possibilities are because the lamp beads are damaged. The lamp beads are serially connected in series, and then the multiple strings of lamps are connected in parallel. If one lamp bead is broken, then the string of beads cannot be used; if a whole string of beads is broken, then All the lamp beads of this lamp can not be used. Therefore, we should always check the lamp beads to see if the lamp beads are burnt, or check the surface of the lamp head for damage.

 2. Check the charge and discharge of the battery

Many LED street lights are equipped with batteries. In order to make the batteries last longer, we have to check them frequently. Mainly to check the discharge of the battery, to see if the battery has normal charge and discharge. Sometimes we also need to check the LED street lamp’s electrodes or wiring for signs of corrosion, if any, to deal with it as soon as possible to avoid bigger problems.

3. Check the lamp body of the LED street light

The LED body of the LED street lamp is also very worthy of attention. It is necessary to always check whether the lamp body has serious damage or leakage. No matter what kind of situation occurs, it should be dealt with as soon as possible, especially the leakage phenomenon, the first time to deal with, to avoid the occurrence of electric shock accidents.

4, check the condition of the controller

LED street lights are wind and rain outdoors, so every time we have heavy winds and heavy rains, we must check whether there is damage or water in the LED street light controller. There are a few such cases, but they should be dealt with in a timely manner if they are discovered. Only by checking frequently can LED street lights be used for a longer period of time.

LED lighting systems

Facilities or operations managers can select LED lighting systems on the basis of how much maintenance they are willing to include in a budget. At a minimum, like other forms of lighting, all LED lighting systems will benefit from regular cleaning to clear out dirt, dust, and grime that accumulates in the fixture, particularly if it is in a high-stress industrial environment. An LED system should also be tested periodically to assess the level of its light output in comparison to the quantity of light it generated when it was first installed.

Beyond this basic maintenance, LEDs will generally not be repaired in the same manner as a traditional luminaire. Instead, individual components in an LED fixture are usually removed and replaced when they experience a failure. A facility that is operating with a lower maintenance budget or that needs faster repairs will therefore benefit from an LED system that simplifies removal and replacement, for example, with fixture access panels that allow quick and easy access to different components.

LED lighting systems are comprised of several different components, each of which can require replacement after an extended period of operations. These components include the LED drivers, light engines, casings, protective elements, and control systems. The semiconductor circuitry in LED drivers will be more apt to fail if they are exposed to consistent high temperatures without the proper engineering and thermal management technology to withstand and dissipate the heat. YOULUMI, as a leading manufacturer of industrial and commercial LED lighting systems, uses a form of passive heat control that removes heat from the driver itself and dissipates that heat with ambient air flow over the integrated fins. A facility that selects an LED lighting system that has a good thermal management system will generally have lower repair and replacement requirements on that system.

Light fixtures and casings can be damaged by collisions and other physical shocks from equipment in different operating environments. If a facility expects a high level of physical stress on its lighting fixtures, it should select fixtures that can withstand those stresses. If those stresses are caused by humid, caustic, or corrosive environments, like those high-humidity indoor growing facilities, chemical plants, or oil-drilling platforms, a facility can further reduce its repair and replacement needs by selecting an LED system that is rated to withstand those environments.

Apart from component failure, the quality of light from an LED light source will degrade over a long period of time. LED lights are often replaced when the amount of light they generate is less than 70% of their initial light output. A well-engineered LED lighting system will not drop to that level until after 50,000 hours, and in many cases up to 100,000 hours of continuous use.

our company has developed integrated systems that feature proprietary thermal management technology and fixture housings that resist corrosion and degradation from conditions in the environments in which they are installed. Our systems will reduce your lighting maintenance obligations while delivering years of high-quality performance.
