Three Benefits of LED High Bay Lighting
Three Benefits of LED High Bay Lighting
In the world of lighting, the high bay is a fixture that you would find in a warehouse, a factory, a gymnasium, or any large open area with relatively high ceilings. Many existing high bay lighting and low bay lighting applications utilize high intensity discharge (HID) lamps such as metal halide or high pressure sodium lamps.
Despite their widespread use, HID lamps utilize antiquated technology that costs building managers both directly and indirectly. Specifically, using HID lamps will result in: higher than necessary energy costs, frequent maintenance costs, and poor lighting performance. These issues can all be addressed by converting your existing lighting to LED.
Energy savings is a primary driver behind why you should evaluate LED lighting for your building or facility. Common wattages for LED high bay lights can range from 95 watts to 495 watts. If we compare this wattage to a typical HID high bay fixture that same range is 175 watts to 1000 watts.
Consequently, by switching to LED lighting you are immediately reducing your energy consumption by 40%-60%. To put this in dollars, you would be saving $300 per fixture per year in electricity costs if you made the switch to LED lighting. Depending on the size of your facility this can really affect the operational balance sheet.
Maintenance Cost Reduction
By converting to LEDs you will also see a dramatic reduction in the maintenance of your T-Line linear highbay light fixtures. This is due to the way LEDs generate light, and the way they progress through their functional life. Instead of ceasing to function properly once a fuel source is significantly reduced, LED generated light output degrades very slowly over time. As a result, the functional life of an LED product can be significantly longer than that of a HID Lamp, therefore drastically reducing the maintenance load required.
For example, by converting conventional 400w HID T-Line modular linear highbay lighting to LED, a typical building with industrial light fixtures can save up to $5,341 over the course of three years in maintenance costs alone.
Finally, lighting performance is a critical factor in evaluating the move to a different type of lighting. From a performance standpoint, matepro ufo highbay lights are a head-and-shoulders above their HID counterparts.
LEDs utilize a multi-point design, meaning they distribute light on the intended surface evenly. Therefore, light levels across a given surface will vary less between fixture mounting locations. In addition to the even distribution of light, LEDs are available in a range of CCTs (correlated color temperatures) and as a result provide a range of options to increase the visual perception of “brightness."
In contrast, HID fixtures produce a “bright spot” directly underneath the fixture with light levels decreasing drastically as the distance between fixtures increases.
In conclusion, we can see that there are three primary drivers to consider installing an LED retrofit in your facility. By converting you will see immediate energy savings, decreased frequency of lighting maintenance, and an uptick in overall lighting performance.
LED Tri-proof light is a special light made of special protective materials, waterproof, dust-proof and anti-corrosion . Tri proof means "Waterproof" "Dust-proof" "Anti-corrosion".
Special anti-oxidation and anti-corrosion material and Silica Gel sealing ring are used to realize the protection requirements of lights. According to the actual working environment of the Tri-proof light, the surface of the lamp protection box is treated with nano-spraying plastic damp-proof and anticorrosive treatment, which prevents the entry of dust and moisture.
Because fluorescent fixtures are often mounted into ceilings and connected directly to mains electricity, they are relatively expensive and difficult to replace completely. As a result, it oftentimes makes the most economical sense to simply use the same fluorescent fixture, but replace the fluorescent tube with an LED tubar light. Therefore, it is important to understand the types of fluorescent tubes that were developed, so that the correct LED tube light can be retrofitted in place.
If you want LED panel lights for home or office, there will be different shapes and sizes available for you. Most commonly, you will have to choose between a square or round LED panel light. Although some people can make a decision easily, others will probably be pickier.
In general, you should choose a shape that looks beautiful in the context of use. However, when looking at the squares and circles of LED panel lights, you will encounter some technical differences. These differences may affect the functionality of the panel under certain settings.
