DIP LED lights are used in a variety of applications nowadays – in a nutshell, DIP is an acronym that stands for “Dual In Line Package”, and this is by far the most commonly used type of package used for medium scale and small scale integrated circuits (circuits that have a maximum of 48 pins). The pins are inserted into the two edges of the r package, and they are spaced at a fixed interval of 0.1in. The mechanism is simple: the pins of the DIP LED lights are especially designed to fit through the holes located in the CB (the circuit board), or into a special socket.
The DIP LEDs are slightly different compared to the traditional LED bulbs which have two connected bins that are mounted to printed circuit boards. The DIP LED lights that have been widely manufactured all over the world in the 1990s are different than the DIP LEDs manufactured today in terms of optical decay and efficiency: the older models have lower CRI, lower efficacy and higher optical decay, which makes them inferior to the newest models. Even so, many old models are widely used these days in numerous applications
The dual in line package is basically a type of chip that is placed inside a durable plastic casing. Pins are inserted along each side of the plastic casing. In the case of DIP LEDs, all the heat is emitted through the pins of the bulb and this is what contributed to the high optical decay (statistically speaking, the average optical decay rate is >15% in 1,000 hours). Even so, they are very easy and convenient for automatic produce and management and they are usually checked by handwork only, which guarantees minimal flaws and an impeccable product quality – after all, the quality of a product is of utmost importance.
DIP LEDs can be easily distinguished by their bullet-shaped case – the durable plastic package of these LEDs can be created to concentrate its light because the plastic can act like a lens (unlike incandescent or fluorescent bulbs which use an external reflector).
One of the most remarkable characteristics of this type of LED lights is that they can save up to 70%-80% more energy compared to traditional bulbs. The average beam angle is between 15-60 degrees, and the bulb has a glass body with glass encasing. Just like any other type of LED lights, the DIP LEDs are available in different colors, from warm white (between 3000 and 3300 K) to pure white (ranging between 5500 and 6300 K).
The average lifetime is around 30,000 hours, and the ideal environmental temperature for the proper functioning of the DIP LEDs is between -30 and +50 degrees Celsius. Generally speaking, the dimension of one light-emitting diode is of 5 mm, and there are around 300 LEDs in a bulb.
Given the numerous benefits associated with LED lighting, the DIP LEDs are commonly used in supermarkets, hotels, factories, task lighting, trains, buses, under cabinets and warehouse illumination. In other words, this type of light-emitting diodes can be used both for decorative and for lighting purposes.
