Benefits of Induction lighting
- Induction lighting offers a quicker payback as it is cheaper to manufacture than LED.
- Induction Lighting has a longer lamp life than all commercial lamps (60,000 hours).
- Induction lighting provides higher conversion efficiency.
- Offers 50% reduction in energy costs compared to standard commercial SON lamps or HQI lamps.
- Dramatically reduces maintenance costs due to lamp life.
Types of Induction Lighting
Low Bay Induction: Equivalent to 150w, 250w, 400w - SON lamps or Metal Halide lamps.
High Bay Induction: Equivalent to 150w, 250w, 400w - SON lamps or Metal Halide lamps.
Flood Light Induction: Equivalent to 70w, 150w, 250w, 400w - Son lamps or Metal Halide lamps.
Amenity Induction: Equivalent to 70w, 150w - Son lamps or Metal Halide lamps.
Induction lighting technology was first introduced back in 1891 by Nicholas Tesla. Only recently has it become a viable commercial lighting option.
In "Layman terms" induction lights are a fluorescent lamp wrapped at two points with electromagnets. High frequency energy from the ballasts is sent around the coils creating a magnetic field. This magnetic field excites the atoms inside the induction lamp and produces the light output.
