Why Induction Lighting?
Induction lamps are so long-lasting they are virtually maintenance free. These lamps also offer crisp white light and can produce up to 70% in energy savings.
How Does Induction Lighting Work?
A combination of the basic principles of electromagnetic induction and gas discharge are used in a revolutionary technology of light generation. With the benefit of not having electrodes this unique product delivers an unprecedented 100,000 hours of high quality, cost effective light.
Are These Lamps Energy Efficient?
Yes, the fixtures are equipped with electronic ballasts which operate at a high-frequency rate. Typically a 200w induction lamp can be compared to a new 400w Metal Halide from a light output standpoint however the 200w induction fixture pulls 204 watts where as the 400w HID pulls about 454 watts. Another advantage is that it also operates at a very low temperature. A plus where excessive heat generation is a concern.
Is The System Resistant To Vibration?
Yes. Because induction lamps are electrodeless they are more reliable in high-vibration applications. The system has been used in bridges, tunnels, and on signage with proven durability.
Will Materials Become Damaged or Faded Under Induction Lighting?
No, the damage factor for materials is rated at a minimal 0.3 therefore these lamps can be used in open luminaries without any front glass or lens.
What LED Lights and do They Save Energy?
All our LED lights and bulbs are energy saving that are designed to replace incandescent, fluorescent, CFL, metal halide, high pressure sodium and halogen lights in your home, office or business. They will reduce your energy consumption by at least 40%, and as much as 80%, depending on the light you choose and the light we are replacing. With LEDs lasting up to 200,000 hours, we can also reduce your maintenance on your lighting.
What are the Benefits of Replacing Your Ordinary Bulbs with the Energy Saving LED Bulbs?
There are many benefits. Here is a list of a few:
- An immediate reduction in your electricity bill.
- Less heat. LED bulbs are extremely efficient converting electricity into light.
- LED Bulbs last a very long time, from 30,000 to 200,000 hours.
- They are virtually indestructible.
- They do not contain mercury or other hazardous materials
- Highly recyclable – with no hazardous parts, you can easily reclaim most of the parts in an environmentally safe way.
Can LEDs be Used in Outside Lights?
Yes. Some bulbs are designed with water-proof fittings. Others need to be kept in a water-tight fixture. Read all instructions and manuals before using a LED bulb outdoors.
Low voltage or High voltage LED Light Saves More Energy?
First, they both use a magnitude less energy than incandescent and halogen lights and still less then compact fluorescent lights. But between the two types of LED lights? – Low voltage lights actually draw higher amperage.
Light Emitting Diode (LED) - What is it?
LEDs are semiconductors, diodes in particular.
A LED should have high hole mobility inside the semiconductor crystal emitting the light. But high hole mobility also means that the full content of any section of the crystal is unpredictable to a large extent. So your bright LED is quite unpredictable as to exact Resistance (R), also.
LED Internal Dimmer - What is it and How it Works?
Internal dimmer is a LED driver equipped with a dimming control. A LED driver can create dimming by way of pulse width modulation (called PWM) circuits.
Can I Use a Dimmer with My LED?
The short answer is No. The longer? Yes and no. You may not use an external dimmer if your LED is not equipped with an internal dimmer.
If I know the exact voltage across my LED can I determine the exact current? If so, how?
No you can’t unfortunately, not exactly. If you know the voltage across the LED that doesn’t mean you know the exact current flowing thru your LED at that time. LEDs are funny things. They have high mobility inside the semiconductor crystal emitting the light. This means they are quite unpredictable as to finding out the exact resistance at a certain voltage – therefore the exact current flowing thru your LED. All you can do is spot checks in various discrete stages. At this stage we do not have a formula. Once we’ll have one, it’ll still likely to be too complex to be used by an average do-it-yourselfer.
