The induction lighting is a new type of lamp with high lumen efficiency and long life time which meet the global low carbon emission and green lighting requirements. It saves a lot of energy and reduces the maintenance cost significantly. The applications show that the same visual effect is reached when the metal halide lamp or sodium lamp is replaced with lower-watt induction lamp, which result in high power factor, the reduced cable size, the reduced initial investment of the power line and the reduced energy.
    The induction lighting has been used in many areas such as the surrounding area of Beijing Olympic Stadiums,T3 Terminal Building of Beijing Airport, Shanghai Bund Tunnel, Shanghai Volkswagon, Shanghai General Motor, Zhengzhou Yutong Auto, Gree Electrical Appliance, workshops, garage, street and roadway, etc. A large number of applications show that the induction lighting can save more than 40% of energy than that of metal halide or sodium lighting system.The induction system and fixture are designed and manufactured in the same company for high reliability and performance.
Advantages of induction lighting
  • No electrode with 100K hours operation, maintenance- free, suitable for the high ceiling workshop, sports stadium, roadway and building where are difficult to access;
  • No flash with soft and gentle lighting, CRI more than 80 with good visual effect;
  • High luminance and low lamp depreciation to meet the lighting requirement within the life time;
  • Instant on and instant hot restrike (VS long delay time of start and restrike of HID lamps).
  • Driven by the electronic ballast with high power factor and low current to reduce the capacity of power distribution equipment(transformer and cable).
  • The dimmable range from 40% to 100% of rating to work with many intelligent dimmer or control systems without compromising the lighting efficiency and color rendering index to save energy.
Unique advantages of induction lighting in the following applications

    Difficult accessible area
    For example, the tunnel lighting requires no maintenance and long lifetime.The relamping has to take place once one or two years for the sodium lamp while the induction lighting does not need relamping in 10 years.The closing of the tunnel for the maintenance purpose is complicated and troublesome.The induction lighting is good for manufacturing workshop, roadway, high pole, refrigerator room etc where are difficult to access.

    High performance lighting requirement area
     
    The foodstuff, automobile assembly, machining, mechanical fabrication, electronic and textile industries requires high color rendering index and no dizzy lighting.The induction lighting is good for workshop, sports stadium, supermarket and public area.

    Longtime operation requirement and frequent on & off area

    Instant hot restrike requirement area

    Community, park, home, architecture
    The low-watt induction lighting are good for these area.

    Agriculture and hydroponics
    Full spectrum induction lighting is good for the vegetable and flower.The low lamp temperature reduces the lighting distance between the lamp and crop with the same or better luminance while saving energy VS HID lamp.

    Classroom and library
    The induction lighting is good for eyesight protection due to the features of non flash, soft and gentle lighting.

    Solar lighting
    The induction lighting with DC power design works with the solar panel in the street and other public lighting area to save power supply cable and energy and reduce carbon emission.

    High-speed rotation machine workshop
    The features of induction lighting with high CRI, high lumen, no shadow, no glare and no flickering provide a comfortable working environment for human eyes especially in high-speed rotating machine workshop.

    Livestock and poultry farm
    Shadowless and no flickering makes the induction lighting suitable for the farm.

Dimmable function

Low pressure discharge lamp; The  lighting efficiency, color temperature and color rendering index do not change or change very little.

High pressure discharge lamp; The lighting efficiency, color temperature, the color rendering index are based on a certain temperature and these performances change a lot when the arc discharge condition changes at dimming condition.
