Frequently Asked Questions


How do LEDs produce light?

Light emitting diodes produce light by the movement of electrons with two terminals of diode.


Do LEDs take time to reach maximum brightness?

No, LEDs reach maximum output straight away.


What does SMD mean?

SMD is the abbreviation of Surface Mounted Diode – meaning that the LED chip is mounted directly to a light strip, without using wires.


What does ‘future-proof technology’ mean?

LED technology is constantly changing, future-proofing LED modules allows luminaire manufactures to switch from one generation to the next without major retooling or changing luminaire design, offering backward compatibility with drivers.


How do I know a light fitting is safe?

In Europe, every light fitting must have a CE label – this tells you that the seller claims that the fitting conforms to all relevant European safety standards. If you are not sure about a fitting, contact a qualified electrician before carrying out any work. All TIME LED products are marked with CE.


Are LEDs environmentally friendly?

LEDs are more efficient than most other light sources, they usually consume less energy at a specific light output. They do not contain hazardous material such as toxic mercury. LEDs also have a longer lifespan and reduce the need to frequently dispose of lamps.
