A light-emitting diode (LED) is a semiconductor light source. LEDs are used as indicator lamps in many devices and are increasingly used for other lighting. Introduced as a practical electronic component in 1962, early LEDs emitted low-intensity red light, but modern versions are available across the visible, ultraviolet and infrared wave lengths, with very high brightness.
When a light-emitting diode is forward biased (switched on), electrons are able to recombine with electron holes within the device, releasing energy in the form of photons. This effect is called electro luminescence and the color of the light (corresponding to the energy of the photon) is determined by the energy gap of the semiconductor. LEDs are often small in area (less than 1 mm2), and integrated optical components may be used to shape its radiation pattern. LEDs present many advantages over incandescent light sources including lower energy consumption, longer lifetime, improved robustness, smaller size, faster switching, and greater durability and reliability. LEDs powerful enough for room lighting are relatively expensive and require more precise current and heat management than compact fluorescent lamp sources of comparable output.

The tropics loves their SUFA's. Here are a few behind the scenes stories coming from the tropics; Puerto Rico, Dominican Republic, Yucatan and Hawaii!

Weighing only 73 lbs. and drawing only 7.3A at 110V, the Sufa Bulle 800, with a patented silver optical system, is one of the most powerful LED fixtures on the market. The Sufa Bullet requires no ballast, and no HMI globe. The Sufa Bullet has a lifespan of 50,000 hrs. (77° F) which equates to a cost savings of approximately $130K in HMI globe replacement. The name Sufa Bullet is in reference to the of Speed and Strength of the SUFA (STORM) F-16 fighter jets, and the American tradition of performance excellence. The LED SUFA BULLET the new generation of the HMI SILVER BULLET.

LED Lighting offers high power output, superior color accuracy, and dimming ability, while maintaining low power consumption - all features demanded by cutting edge professionals. And Cinemills is at the forefront of this technology with its superior quality, durability, innovative designs, and detailed engineering which outperform all competing LED products.
