LED technology is not new in itself, it has existed for decades. This is the progress of the manufacturing process of major international manufacturers who have made possible in the early 2000s the emergence of the first professional LED lighting.
An LED is an high-performance electronic component under 3 conditions :
- It is manufactured by a company recognized internationally used to manufacture quality semiconductors
- It is installed professionally
- It is in sufficient quantity to fulfil the lighting requirement
The question of reliability is central to the use of a disruptive technology. Provided that it is quality, it is not the LED which is called into question , but the way it is used that can be a problem.
If at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, a reliable and efficient engine was used on an unsuitable chassis , cheap suspension and bottom of the range tyres, it would be a sure failure
