Electronic Metal

Technology has changed all industries in the world several times, and continues to flex its muscles on the market for energy efficient lighting as well. The standard components used for decades in commercial fixtures are being fine-tuned and perfected to meet the demanding needs of power generation aware. The results have been nothing short of appalling!

The two main components of commercial fixtures include lamp and ballast. Most applications commercial high bay sometimes called for 250W, 400W metal halide lamps or 1000 watts depending on engineering requirements, the spacing support, and ceiling height. These lamps are long-term high light output have been a staple of the industry for over 50 years.

By adding these high wattage lamps on magnetic ballasts for the operation, the corresponding real power consumption of these parties was in fact closer of 295W, 455W and 1100W properly. Although the lights were of long duration with a lifespan of more than 20,000 hours, which also consistently lost up to 60% of its light (light output) on the life of the lamp. Because the lights often continue to function well after its expected life span specific many plants end up being very badly lit, these lamps with high consumption. Although lend a fraction of the original light, which continue to draw the same intensity as when new, and in some cases failing ballasts can even excessive amperage.

The challenge for the lighting industry trade has been design a device that uses less energy than is put more light, and keeps the light levels near the level of return on new lamps. Although the task may seem daunting, technology advances have made and continue to make this possible.

Fluorescent Lighting with energy efficient ballasts newly designed electronics used as substitutes for metal halide older accessories actually consume less than half the energy of their legendary counterparts workhorse. They place more lumens in the life of the lamp, to produce a higher CRI or color rendering index, last longer (up to 30,000 hours), maintain 95% of its light on the life of the lamp, and still use less than half the energy for the equivalent or better light!

By the use of high light and lamps T8 and T5 fluorescent electronic ballasts, manufacturers are producing devices as fast as the contractors can put inches with government incentives to reduce KWH use in place through EPACT, and local utilities offer rebates to encourage large facilities to reduce consumption, industry industry and electronic ballast fluorescent to and continue to shape the futures of the mold of energy efficient lighting.
