  1. What would be your advice to buyer when it comes to choose LED strips in the mine tunnel operations?

With the evolution of LED Strip Lights as an underground lighting system from HALO, it’s changing the situation of underground mining that only use big head tunnel lamp fixture and setting new unsurpassed examples.

Time has shown that it is imperative to choose LED Strip Lights from a reliable supplier or factory, that will provide backup service if needed.

The great design  which enables for the mine tunnel light become a small and easy available light,very slim flexible strip light,not a big head any more,it is long run 100m or 50m then,not a small spot area that covered, also enables connection of a power supply on either end, or both ends of the strip lighting. In doing so the rated length effectively doubles and the lighting will continue to operate if completely severed or if one of the power supplies fails. The Strip Lights come in 0.1meter sections, and this means only the 0.1 meter that break or fail will be affected and turned off, the rest of the mine led strip lighting will still work.
What are key factors that mines tunnel owners should consider in choosing LED strips?

The following variables need to be determined when considering LED Strips:

Voltage of the mine’s power supply

Strip Lights are generally 36V – 48V, which require an external driver, or 110V /240V, while directly DOB 230V led strip which has a much smaller inline driver in each small segment 10cm,so it means every 10cm can be cut and work alone.

Lengths required

36V - 48V LED Strips generally come in 10-20m lengths.  They can often be cut into smaller pieces down to 10cm. 

110V /240V LED Strips generally come in 50m rolls.  The smallest units for these are 10cm pieces.  They are better suited for large areas,max run 100m without voltage drop

Quantity of light required

What are the Lumen or Lux requirements per meter of Strip Light?  Different LED specification are available for different light outputs for different applications.usual our main source is 15W/m 1500lm/m,6500K color.140leds/m.SMD2835 0.5W.


Operating conditions determine the waterproof rating.  Various options are available.regular its ip68 ik08 flex led strip in Mines can easily apply  to existing structures.

Due to the low energy consumption of Strip Lights, new installations require less cabling and switchgear, and can also be easily attached to existing infrastructures. and installation of the lighting itself, by means of PVC cable ties or metal clips, can be done by simply strapping the rolled out LED strip lighting onto existing structures. No need for extra wiring and a FUSE is in-built each ip68 UL male-female connector.

Strip Lights are Modular and Compatible

The lighting is completely modular with all solutions fully compatible, allowing for interjoining with each other. The lighting runs can be cut throughout the run with cutting intervals every 10cm, depending on the solution used.
What potential benefits it could add to mine owner's operations in flex mine led strip?

It would have a major impact on the mining industry’s safety features.

LED Strip Lights is a safe and efficient alternative to complex infrastructures that needs constant maintenance and replacements. Implementing Strips in the underground tunnels will add to the following unique safety features:

Safe working environment – 

Improved visibility is critical in maintaining a safe working environment underground, with poor lighting cited as a contributing factor in many underground accidents

The Strip Lights illuminates potential dangers by providing a complete flood of light from floor to ceiling, as opposed to any globe configuration where these spaced lights can blow or get damaged. This can substantially boost the efficiency of workers.

Fast and safe repairs - Repairs can be carried out safely and quickly under live conditions, by only replacing the section that failed. The ingenious ring feed design, guarantees perfectly functioning lighting even when severed, further reducing the need for repairs.Also we offer 5years warranty.Free replacement during 5years.

Easier installation

LED Strip Lights are much lighter weight to carry and work with compared to conventional lighting.  its 4.5KGS/50m roll/box ,easily carry and  install,also have portable drum roll to choose for temporary site lighting.

Less downtime

Strip Ligts do not typically fail catastrophically, as is usually the case with fluorescent lighting, but rather the light output generally decreases over time.  This allows for a regular maintenance schedule and replacement prior to failure, maintaining consistency of lighting and improving safety underground.

Financial Benefit

Low maintenance in direct contrast to short lifespan and high cost of conventional lighting systems due to the continuous need for replacement of components.

Energy – Efficient

LED lights use significantly less electricity and result in immediate and ongoing savings in running costs when compared to conventional lighting solutions such as incadescent globes or neon tubes.  Generally, LEDS use about 10% of the enery of a conventional Incadescent bulb resulting in a 90% energy saving.
Share some of the new technological features that have optimized LED lighting?

LEDs now cover the entire light spectrum, including red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and white, white light remains the holy grail of LED technology.

Another shortcoming of early LED designs was light output, so researchers have been working on several methods for increasing lumens per watt.

LEDS now offer higher Lumen outputs per watt, as well as increased lifespans.
So in a words,choose mine use led strip light is much better than the conventional lamp fixture,its safe and eco solution .
