Overcoming Reliability Challenges in LED Streetlight Applications

Sponsored by: Bourns

LED lighting is starting to be used in streetlights because of its cost and reduced CO2 emission benefits. LED technology, however, has had previous false starts where light output, reliability or temperature effects have resulted in a disappointing result. Bourns’ new application note shows how to address the many reliability challenges faced by developers. In particular, it highlights solutions to open LED failure and effective circuit protection in electrically-exposed environments.
