Electrochromic transparent or switchable window glass is a special type of glass that can change its light transmission properties when subjected to varying temperatures, light, or direct power. In simple terms, the glass alters from being clear to translucent and/or blocking certain wavelengths of light in accordance with the amount of applied electric current. This means that the glass can be used to enhance the design of an interior space by making it translucent for certain wavelengths of light while blocking others. Thus, you can have windows with different colors of glass in various shapes and sizes and thereby create a designer look.
When you install smart or electrochromic glass around your windows, you will need to make sure that you keep them closed when not in use, which prevents heat buildup. As mentioned, this type of glass has a variety of properties that allow it to change its transmittal properties based on the amount of applied electricity. However, this also means that heat buildup can increase in this area, especially if your building is heated or contains high ceilings. The result is increased energy consumption during the day, which translates into higher utility bills.
In order to reduce the impact of this issue on your energy consumption, there are several measures you can take. First, you can install high-efficiency upholstery, including those made of fiberglass. Second, reduce the number of windows that are part of your building by replacing the ones with less-efficient and older models. Third, use the appropriate window tint that reduces the amount of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun, which can also affect its consumption.
There are a variety of technologies that can be incorporated into electro chromic smart glass to allow for the transfer of varying voltage levels. High-power LED technology offers one of the most efficient transfer technologies available. Its high voltage tolerance and long lifetime make it ideal for applications where the device must withstand the effects of temperature fluctuations and harsh weather conditions. A drawback, however, is that high power LED display panels typically generate a tremendous amount of heat. They require a cooling system to keep them from getting too hot.
The infrared energy emission in the infrared spectrum can be enhanced using an indirect coating of infrared light transmission film. This film can also enhance the color discrimination capabilities of the display panel, allowing it to display light from both the red green and blue ultraviolet ranges. Unlike other types of opaque or semi-opaque technologies, however, an infrared light transmission film can only be applied to the surface area that needs to be illuminated. Also, because it is still relatively new technology, there are currently no standards in place to test for compliance, so it is important that you consider the efficiency and performance of the product you purchase.
Advantages of electrochromic smart glass
There are many advantages to the electrochromic smart glass technology, including its ability to create a thin, wafer-thin layer of material that allows for the transfer of electric currents. When a small amount of electricity is applied across this thin layer of glass, it creates a barrier between the electrical current and the surface of the material. This is called an electromagnetic enclosure. In this way, the electrical current can only pass through one way. Because of this, the surface of the material remains clear and the electrical current will not affect the surrounding area.
Some of the ways in which these building facades could be effectively used include in sky lighting, exterior signage, lighting aisles in airports, safety applications, medical applications, and surveillance. It is important to realize, however, that as soon as you install an exterior display, there will be some level of maintenance required. As the years pass, the layer of the Electrochromic Smart Glass begins to become thinner and may require occasional re-installation of the Electro Chromic Window. This means that the window may need replacing every ten to fifteen years. However, when considering the many benefits of using this pendant based on the benefits associated with the pendant based Electro chromic window, it is a smart investment.
When looking at the electro chromatic glass, you will note that it contains millions of tiny pores which are called prisms. These pores allow for the transfer of light from one color to another, but they also allow certain colors to escape transmittance. To solve this problem, these particles of glass are coated inside a plastic emulsion which has a coating of metal. The metal coat protects against abrasion, scratches, and smudges so that the particles are always properly protected.
