Corn Cob LED lights get their name from their unique appearance- small LED bulbs arranged linearly along the length of a tube, giving the appearance of corn kernels on a cob. They are also called “corn LED” or “maize LED.”
Like all LED lights, corn cob lights turn on full intensity when switched on and produce minimal heat. Multi-panel corn lights with movable panels have brilliant directional beam. Corn lights are a cost-efficient replacement for HID lights such as sodium halide and fluorescent lamps. Although they are priced higher, their higher energy output is able to cover the cost in a few years of installation. With an average operational life of 40,000 hours, corn lights mean fewer trips up the ladder for replacing them and lower cost of maintenance.
No wonder, most commercial, residential, and public places are being outfitted with corn LED lights.
Brandon Industries 18W Corn Cob light can replace 70W metal halide lamp and delivers 2160 Lumens, much higher than any HID lamp of the same wattage. Additionally, these lights can withstand voltage fluctuations and are also lightweight with robust structure, that doesn’t compromise on quality. You also get a 5-year warranty and express shipping that Brex offers with all its products, as added bonuses.
Functions and Usages of Corn Cob Lights
Corn lights produce flicker-free, unwavering, pleasant light that can be used for any high-intensity setting- indoor as well as outdoor. Brandon’s corn lights come in various base sizes- E26 and E39. Most light fixtures can be retrofitted with corn lights by using screw-in sockets. Installing corn lights is easy; just screw them into the socket as you do with light bulbs.
Corn lights can be used in any place that requires high Lumens output, such as:
- Highway Lighting
- Interior High Bay lamps
- Street Lights
- Post Top Lights
- Bollard Pathway Lighting
- Exterior Wall Packs
Sometimes, corn lights may be too heavy for horizontal mounting. In that case, a thin wire may be needed for additional support. Vertical mountings are hassle-free. Just check the casing of your light fixture and match with corn light specifications. Brandon’s corn lights come in a range of wattages between 18W and 58W (capable of replacing HID lamps between 70W and 250W).
Advantages of Corn Lights
High Energy Output
Corn lights are extremely energy efficient. Their Lumens output is much more compared to traditional lights (almost 10 times more). Electro-optical conversion is nearly 100%, almost nil wastage. Plus, they work satisfactorily in low voltage areas and even in places experiencing wide voltage fluctuations.
LED lights are known to last way longer than incandescent and halide lamps. Corn lights have been called “long life lamps” owing to their robust and light structure, presence of epoxy resin, no loose parts, and shorter replacement history. Unlike incandescent bulbs, there’s no fragile filament that burns in high voltage. Corn lights suffer no fading of light output and no abrupt dying out even after prolonged usage.
LED light sources can be manipulated by computer technology to produce 256 × 256 × 256 = 16777216 colors and achieve dynamic lighting effects and visual imagery, not possible through monochromatic light sources. Moreover, LED light is sharper and produces more vibrant colors. There is virtually no distortion of colors and images when illuminated by LED lights.
Corn lights are safe for the environment also. They produce no ultraviolet rays and minimal infrared light. Heat and radiation dissipation is negligible. Also, LED lights contain no toxic material like mercury. So, they can be disposed of without worries. LED lights also produce no glare, and hence no “blue” pollution. Cold light sources like LED are safe to handle and completely recyclable. Owing to all these benefits, corn lights are termed “green” light source.
Computer technology, network communication technology, image processing technology, and embedded control technology renders corn lights a superior lighting option. Its flexible features and unlimited up gradation options give it an unbeatable edge. LED’s lights are low voltage microelectronic products that are better than traditional monochromatic light sources.
In general, there is a lack of awareness about the benefits and versatility of corn lights. Our aim is to bridge this knowledge gap and provide a great lighting option for all kinds of projects. Brandon’s Ultra-Wide 360° Light Distribution corn lights will prove to be a wise investment.
