LED lights have developed at an accelerated tempo over the past ten years. When first developed they were small lights used as panel lights on electronic instruments and equipment. Today there is no form of lighting that cannot be replicated by an LED device. Various grades of quality are available, from the cheap and nasty plastic units to the highly sophisticated with fluted aluminum heat-sinks.
The critical components of any LED device are the actual chips employed and the driver unit. Again, the latter can have the bare minimum of components, or, it can be highly sophisticated, catering for lightning-induced spikes as well as general variations in the electrical supply. In South Africa, both these factors play a major role. It is therefore of the utmost importance that drivers should be designed for South African conditions. Off-the-shelf drivers from overseas suppliers are just not acceptable.
