Induction LIghting - why all the fuss
[2016-03-17]

Induction technologies is not new and remains one of the best kept secrets in energy efficient lighting.  


A revolution in lighting technology


Induction Lighting was first developed in the late 19th century by brilliant inventor, physicist and engineer, Nikola Tesla, Induction Lighting combines the basic principles of electronic induction and gas discharge.


The late 1990's saw a reignition in the interest in Induction Lighting technology when improvements in the field of electronics combined with the desire for more energy efficient lighting options made it a very attractive solution. The "secret" of Induction Lighting as one of the best long lasting, energy saving and high quality light output technologies was realised!


What is Induction Lighting?


Put simply, Induction Lighting is essentially a fluorescent light source without electrodes or filaments.  Induction Lighting operates by the transfer of energy via electromagnetic induction combined with light generation by gas discharge. As a result, Induction lamps enjoy an extremely efficient and long life of up to 100,000 hours or more than 11 years of continuous 24/7 use.  The main difference between Induction lighting and conventional lighting is that Induction lights operate without electrodes and filaments.  So unlike fluorescent lights, Induction lights have a much longer life because the light doesn't have short-life parts like filaments.


So what savings could I expect?


Induction lighting is a long lasting energy saving alternative to metal halide, HID, fluorescent and other forms of conventional lighting for commercial, industrial and outdoor applications.  For example a 400W Metal Halide, Highbay light can (easily) be replaced with the 250W (or lower wattage) Induction Highbay Iight with immediate energy savings.


Not only are the energy savings impressive, there are more savings to be gained due the reduction in maintenance costs and rising energy costs. As mentioned above - Induction lights can last up to 100,000 hours (or more than 11 years of continuous 24/7) use) that offers basically a "set-and forget" high quality, power saving lighting solution that is highly effective and economical in commercial applications.


In fact you can save over 50% power with Induction energy efficient lighting.
