Energy Saving Light Bulbs: LEDs from ecoNoon Light the Way
PENANG, Malaysia, Sept. 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — A new lighting technology and products from ecoNoon could provide the best LED lighting solutions to meet the world’s growing need to save energy on lighting in commercial, industrial, residential and public spaces.
“ecoNoon has created a breakthrough technology to improve energy efficiency in lighting. The new technology allows LEDs to work effectively in the unchartered territory of higher wattages that are far beyond anything available from any other company in the world. The question is ‘How can the world reduce its energy consumption used for lighting?’ The answer is held in a small startup company in Malaysia, built upon a US patent of the LED lighting module,” said Ir Ooi Seoh Lin, Chief Marketing Officer of ecoNoon (http://www.ecoNoon.co).
“Investors who are looking to brighten up the dark days of searching for new products need to look no further than LED lighting technology and products provided by ecoNoon,” said Mr. Ooi. Energy used for lighting comprises 20% of all energy used worldwide. “However, trimming this slightly to 19% faces an enormous technical challenge and a cost barrier. LED bulbs are more efficient (2X to 3X than fluorescent). Furthermore, LEDs have a much higher luminous efficacy than fluorescent and incandescent lamps or HID lights (such as Sodium or Mercury) and LEDs do not contain hazardous chemicals that threaten our environment and the health of all living things on this planet,” he said.
“ecoNoon’s products stand out as saving more energy than most other LEDs,” he said. Part of the company’s business model is to retrofit existing luminaires or lighting fixtures with LED light bulbs or light modules.
The company’s energy saving product pipeline is in full swing:
- Globe Bulbs (GL series) are being commercialized and will be ready in September.
- HID (High Intensity Discharge Lamp)/Sodium Replacement Bulbs (SB series) is undergoing certification and will be available in October.
- Mini Spot Light Bulbs/Spot Light Bulbs (ML/SL series) will be ready in three months.
Each bulb is guaranteed for at least 30K to 50K hours or five years, depending on wattages.
ecoNoon’s LED light bulbs run cooler due to the absence of Metal Core Printed Circuit Boards (MCPCB) that are used in almost 100% of all LED lights on the market today. Instead, its patent-pending optical and thermal solutions as well as structural solutions provide several advantages over the existing art.
“ecoNoon’s Lighting Module is used in all of its finished products to power bulbs of all shapes and wattages up to 1,000 watts and higher. In fact, the Lighting Module’s robust thermal solution can keep the temperature of the system well below 100 degrees C in any wattage, in sharp contrast to the existing art which does depend on the MCPCB to spread heat generated by LED. In fact LED can actually impede the thermal spreading capability of the board. For example, a mere extra 0.5 degree C per watt in a MCPCB can spell disaster to an LED chip inside a luminaire of high power, say 100 watts. Most luminaires having this issue do not show up until after a couple of years of operation, when the LED chips inside fail due to high operating temperatures. One example of this is China’s recent call to its LED lighting companies to slow down and take a hard look at their LED quality and solutions,” Mr. Ooi said.
Because of deficiencies in thermal solutions in most LED lights today, LED light adaptation has been very slow. For example, after learning that expensive street lights failed after 8 months, customers stopped buying them.
“We are strong in researching various applications and using our LED lamps to solve energy consumption problems for many different industries. We can customize bulbs to suit various applications and we can create a variety of colors,” Mr. Ooi said.
“Our flagship product will be HID/Sodium Replacement Bulb which will retrofit all the street lighting without requiring any new fixtures. The bulbs are lighter than existing bulbs and provide more power. They can also be used in factories, buildings and many other places,” he said.
“All human beings have a responsibility to reduce CO2 to stop global warming of our Mother Earth for the sake of future generations,” he said.
ecoNoon was founded in June 2011 and is based in Penang, Malaysia.
ecoNoon is a true worldwide company. Research and development are conducted in Japan and the United States. Marketing is based in Malaysia. Components are made by several Japanese companies. Assembly is done in Penang.
The company has several patents pending.
