Man has always a sustainable relationship with light and its first use dates back to prehistoric times.
The oldest traces of scientific research on the light are China and the ancient Greece.
Since then, the man has ceased to experiment this science, We used various forms of artificial light that have profoundly influenced our life and work systems, we have learned to use the light in many technologies such as photography, film and television...
In 1879, Joseph Swann filed a patent on a system of carbon filament light bulb in a globe in a vacuum, but it is the inventor Thomas Edison who three years later filed a patent of electric incandescent bulb in carbon with a life 1000 hours. The first light bulb was born and it was the end of lighting the gas or oil that fragrant was often dangerous.
This is in 1962 Nick Holonyak Jr consultant at General Electric on the basis of the work of Oles Lösev has developed light-emitting diode and a few years later the first LED light bulb was born.
The LED bulb is optoelectronics to emit light when an electric current passes through an electronic component called diode.
For a decade, LED technology has become one of the first light sources used in our homes.
A small revolution for this new innovation in the world of lighting, because LED offer technology advantage to disseminate a more powerful light and life of an LED bulb lasts 50,000 hours against 2,000 hours for halogen and 8,000 lamps h for compact fluorescent lamps.
It is also important to note that the lighting in our homes is a major consumer of electricity, this consumption is just behind our home appliances such as the refrigerator or the freezer.
In France, lighting accounts for nearly 15% of our annual electric bill and simply replace your old incandescent light bulbs with a power of 60 watts by an LED with a power of 7 watt bulb will allow you to save up to €10 per year per bulb. We can conclude that the lighting LED in your home can reduce up to 85% of your power consumption of luminaires.

This fixture is still powered by a stabilized transformer (driver) that powers the LED current constant.
This stabilized transformer allows you to power the LED current constant 350 my 700 or my or 1000 mA same see 1500 my.
In some fixtures of qualities, the LED can be replaceable, in this case we will talk about LED retrofit. Unlike conventional fixtures consisting of a structure and one or more interchangeable bulbs, the LED lamp is not composed of a socket, because it is a LED module or diode LED which is directly integrated into the lamp. Very small size, this module allows for much finer lamps and so much less bulky. This gained space saving, the LED lamp can take various forms and surprising light effects. Composed of an integrated LED bulb fixtures have a higher light output and a life expectancy greater than fixtures made of replaceable bulb.
Don't worry, the problem you are having is not the bulb itself, but the electric component that feeds the LED module. Actually, unlike fixtures composed of bulbs, the built-in LED light is powered by a component electrical connecting wires into and out of the luminaire. To remedy this problem, just to change it by taking care to respect the technical information from this component, that is, the output power in Watts that can support this component and the my needed to supply the LED module of your fixture.
