2.Working Principle of LED Mirror with Frame

The working principle of framed LED mirrors involves two main aspects: the LED lighting system and the mirror itself.


2.1.LED Lighting System

LED mirrors with frames usually have a built-in LED (Light Emitting Diode) lighting system, a semiconductor device that produces light when an electric current is passed through the LED chip.LED lights have the advantages of high efficiency, long life, and low energy consumption, so they are widely used in the lighting field. In framed LED mirrors, LED light strips are usually installed inside or around the mirror's bezel to provide illumination by reflecting or transmitting light through the mirror's surface.


The mirror is the main part of the framed LED mirror and its working principle is based on the reflection of light. When light hits the surface of the mirror, a portion of the light is reflected back, creating the mirror image one sees.The LED lighting system provides enough illumination to make the reflection of the mirror clearer and brighter.


Taken together, the Framed LED Mirror works by providing illumination through the LED lighting system, which, combined with the reflective principle of the mirror itself, allows the user to see a clear reflection on the surface of the mirror. This design not only provides a good lighting effect, but also provides a clear and bright mirror image in different environments, making the mirror work well in a variety of applications.
