Replace a bulb whatsoever to filament, halogen or neon-compact by a LED bulb is in most cases very easy. You have nothing to adapt, LED bulbs use the same units and tension than all other bulbs. So you just unscrew the old bulb and screw is the new.
However you must identify what type of bulb it is when you plan to replace it with an LED light bulbs. You need to determine the base. In turn, this will determine compatibility with your sleeve or your support but also the supply voltage. Our records have a clear indication to help you identify the nerve of your bulbs.
“Ok, we unscrew the old bulb and we screwed the LED bulb, Yes, but?”
Yes but be careful anyway because there are some special cases:
-Light bulbs on dimmer.
-Light bulbs connected to presence detector switches.
-The running 12V bulbs plugged into transformer.
-Light bulbs on dimmer.
Wanting to use LED bulbs on a dimmer requires appropriate blisters. Indeed, LED bulbs are not all compatible with dimmers.
We use the term “dimmable” to define a compatible bulb. (the English word “dimmer”, “drive” in french).
LED bulbs dimmable was not available on the market at the beginning of the LED, they are today and some bulbs now includes this function for the same cost.
But that’s not all, drives them as not all are compatible with the LED.
We knew a maximum power allowed for these, but they also have minimal power to allow them to operate. However the LED bulbs consume so little that in many cases (if you have only a few bulbs connected on it), this minimum consumption is not reached.
You therefore anticipate and determine the range of use of your drive (usually indicated on it).
The inverters sold a few months are mostly compatible with low consumption.
-Light bulbs connected to sensors.
We use more in addition to presence detectors to control the lighting of our light bulbs.
These systems have many advantages: no need to switch, the certainty of do not forget to turn off the light out of a room, etc… But just like the inverters of intensity, (cf., above) some detector also have a minimum power for their proper functioning.
Here also, make you the compatibility of your detectors with low consumption.
-Light bulbs powered by 12v via a transformer.
Some bulbs operate with a supply voltage of 12v. They therefore require a transformer to avoid damage. The most common are the bulbs MR16 and MR11 (some recessed spots) but also the G4 bulbs (desk lamps, lighting of hoods, etc…)
If replace you your halogen by LED bulbs, make sure the compatibility of your transformer.
Indeed, the transformers used so far for halogen bulbs deliver a supply voltage of 12v with a tolerance of more or less 5v. So you can end up with 7-17volts output voltages, which may damage the LED bulbs that support a tolerance of +/-0.3V only.
They need you so absolutely use an electronic transformer (or switching power supply), these are equipped with regulators to ensure an output voltage of 12v permanently.
To identify them, we frequently finds the following terms on the label: “electronic transformer”, “regulated power supply” or even “LED”.
It is important to know that most dealers (this is also the case for us), the guarantees related to these bulbs, are valid only when a compatible processors is purchased at the same time as your bulbs.
