Induction lighting works by using electromagnetic energy to create light. It is a wonderful system because it is a non-destructive process, which means it has incredible longevity. Induction lighting will last around 100,000 hours! It also is extremely energy efficient with high efficacy (in many cases, 60+ or 70+ lumens per watt).
Induction lighting employs a glass tube, much like florescent lighting. This glass tube is attached to two coils that are electromagnetic. Attached to this is the transformer. The transformer sends a signal to the electromagnetic coils. Then, these coils excite the gases inside the tube to produce light.
There are no electrodes in the bulb to wear away, which is why it has such a long lifespan when compared to traditional commercial lighting systems. Induction lighting is also different than metal halide lighting in that the re-strike is much shorter. The re-strike time of a lighting system is the time it usually takes for the light to run again after turning off the lighting system and turning it back on. For metal halide lighting the re-strike time is 15 minutes or longer. For induction lighting the re-strike is less than half a second!
Induction lighting also does not get hot to the touch. The energy goes toward making light, not producing heat. This keeps cooling costs down in your commercial building also.
The beauty of induction lighting is that the installation is not a difficult process. It is well suited for any commercial building. It comes in a variety of color shades for differing environments.
If you are looking for the newest, greenest, and most powerful commercial lighting system, consider induction lighting. Induction lighting is a highly energy efficient lighting system and is particularly useful in commercial settings. We will be happy to help you incorporate induction lighting in your business’ energy efficiency plan.
