All About Induction

 
Power Consumption – Energy savings can extremely impact operation costs. Savings can be delivered through the installation of new efficient Induction Lamp technologies which consume only 50% +/- of what the conventional lighting system consumes. All existing lamps and fixtures should be considered for replacement, retrofit or upgrade to maximize energy savings.

Lifetime – Durable Induction Lamps last 5 to 10 times longer than conventional light sources and exceed 100,000 hours of rated lifetime (that is over 22 years of 12 hours of ignition per day). Thus the re-lamping costs can be cut it to a fraction of what is currently being spent on maintenance costs or virtually eliminated. Those costs also apply to purchasing administration, logistics, warehousing, disposal etc.

Maintenance – The cost occurring during temporary suspension of operation because of lighting system maintenance will not be simple to calculate. The over head costs related with maintenance include costs of salary, training, logistics and insurance could be calculable. Other costs if you are currently contracting out the maintenance include the cost of changing out ballasts and lamps when needed, especially in those hard to reach locations. However, the total maintenance costs will often exceed energy savings. Induction Lamps can help users minimize maintenance costs in terms of its longer lifetime.

Wearing Parts – Electrode-less design of Induction Lamps can completely avoid the damage of delicate components such as filaments or electrodes that are the primary causes of lamp failure in conventional light sources including HID, Halogen, Incandescent and Fluorescent lamps. Replacement for induction Lamps is therefore not required at all after vibration, accidental collision or weather storms and long time of ignition as well.

Heat – Less heat generating from Induction Lamps can reduce a lot of cost including lighting fixture maintenance costs and HVAC operation costs from ambient inefficient heat loss.

Color Perceived – Good color rendering index (CRI) is crucial to visibility, safety and comfort. Induction Lamps having a natural color of light can illuminate much better than most conventional light sources. Because light color can greatly change appearance, aesthetics and attractive qualities color options should be an important factor when considering and evaluating light quality.

Hot Strike – Induction Lamps have good performance of instant re-strike without warming up which will ensure that there isn't any additional utility costs from temporary suspensions of power supply. This all will ensure safety and security for those applications where instant re-strike is required.

Cold Ignition – Induction Lamps can be ignited even under much colder circumstances with temperatures lowering to -40 degrees C/-20 degrees F, thus being a preferable light source for cold storages and outdoor lighting applications in cold areas.

Flicker and Glare - Without flicker and glare Induction Lamps can dramatically improve productivity, readability, eyesight and headaches when comparing with conventional light sources including HID and Fluorescent Lamps that generate much flicker.

Noise- With a very quiet and silent design Induction Lamps can make users comfortable without a humming or buzzing.

Environmentally Safe – In Terms of higher energy efficiency Induction Lamps can be adapted to promote energy saving policies and utilize the many Utility Saving Rebate Programs that are available.

EMC – Induction Lamps are the best Lighting Products available for business's when completing a lighting project, since it can bring customers many benefits and a very high ROI with less than 3 years. Induction Lamps are an exceptional cost –effective lighting solution that can replace the conventional lights sources.
