fluorescent high bay fixtures
Some of the common high bay apps can be seen in the gym, warehouse, factory, etc.
All lamps used in the application are made of Mercury (High-
Bay Lighting: opportunities to reduce mercury and improve energy efficiency, P. 2003, Paragraph 1).
In recent years, both high-intensity fluorescence technology (HIF)
HID has become more and more popular, but in many applications, people have a clearer understanding of the performance of loan technology, which gives loans the opportunity to gain market share.
The improved technology of fluorescent lamps and the invention of new hv lamps constitute the most cost-effective choice of fluorescent lighting in indoor areas such as warehouses, large retail stores, factories and sports facilities (
Lighting: high HID and fluorescence
Bay lighting, section 1, Page 2007).
The history of fluorescent lighting: people usually associate lighting and fixtures with incandescent lamps invented by Thomas Alva Edison and some other inventors.
This bulb works on the basis of electricity and filament.
When these bulbs are electrically heated, the temperature of the filament will be high, so it will glow and shine.
Fluorescent bulbs like ARC and steam perform differently.
Light did not come because of heat;
It is produced by a chemical reaction, which occurs when electricity is applied to different gases surrounded by a glass void chamber (
History of fluorescent lamps, paragraph 2009 1).
At 1857 Alaxandre E.
Becquerel discovered the fact that it was fluorescent and glowing.
He imagined the generation of fluorescent tubes was the same as the current manufacture.
He did some experiments with coated discharge tubes combined with luminous materials.
This is the procedure for further expansion in fluorescent lamps (
History of fluorescent lamps, Section 2009).
In 1901, Peter Cooper Hewitt obtained the exclusive right of the first Mercury Steam lamp (
History of fluorescent lamps, paragraph 2009 3).
His low-pressure mercury arc lamp became the first such lamp of modern fluorescent type today.
Edmund Gromer has discovered a high pressure steam lamp that helps to produce economical light with less heat.
In 1927, he obtained the copyright of the experimental fluorescent lamp.
Some historians praised Edmund Gromer for inventing the first real fluorescent lamp (
History of fluorescent lamps, Section 2009 7).
T5 lamps: The high lumen fluorescent system is becoming more and more popular, where T5 lamps are presented in the configuration of 4 and 6 lamps, and the effective process may be related to the high bay application.
They are flexible systems that are higher than any other high bay app.
It has the following features (
High Bay lighting solution, Page 2007, paragraph 1)
: * It provides the most light with the help of the least light.
* It is good to use with the occupancy sensor.
* It is ideal for keeping the lamp life in frequently switched applications. * It has 120-
277 V and 347-
480 V ballast.
* It can increase lumen output at an ambient temperature of 35 °c.
* Designed for high bay applications.
* Its technology is very high and it can reduce the heat generated.
* It consists of heat dissipation technology that can dissipate heat.
* Facilities with additional energy saving (
High Bay lighting solution, Page 2007, segment).
Compared to HID: HID lights are considered point light sources because they emit strong light on a small scale.
These lamps can be used for remote purposes such as indoor and outdoor sports facilities, warehouses, factories, etc. In these places, the ceiling is high and street lamps are used (
Lighting: high HID and fluorescence
Bay lighting, section 2007, p 1, 1).
If we compare HID and loan lights, we will find some disadvantages of HID lights (
High Bay lighting solution, page 2, page 2007)
They consume a lot of energy.
* They have warm-up and strike delays as they can\'t get in touch with the check-in reviewers effectively.
* Their noise is not conducive to a quiet environment * their lumen maintenance is very low and a significant reduction in low output can be observed in this case.
* Very poor color.
CRI rate between 60 and 70.
From one lamp to the other, the colors are also different.
* Match efficiency is less than 80%.
Now, if we see the benefits of the high lumen fluorescence system, it can distinguish them from HID (
High Bay lighting solution, 2007, p2, 3 segments)
: * The safety factor is energy saving.
They can save up to 50% of their energy.
They are instant and they have no warm-up time.
They have a good relationship with occupancy sensors, so energy savings can be maximized.
* Its operation is not noisy but quiet.
Its voice was rated as.
Its color is very good.
The CRI rate is between 75 and 85.
It doesn\'t have any color changes or moves over time.
* The matching efficiency is higher than 90% (
High Bay lighting solution, 2007, p2, 3 segments).
In calculating energy efficiency, it is necessary to check the amount of light sand and wattage per lamp (High-
Bay Lighting: Opportunities for mercury reduction and energy efficiency.
For example, four HO T5 lamps or induction fluorescent lamps are required to produce the same amount of light as HID lamps.
If lumens are higher per watt, we will have less demand for light.
If the lighting system uses less kilowatt hours per year, the facility will use less power and pay for it (High-
Bay Lighting: opportunities to reduce mercury and improve energy efficiency, P. 2003, Paragraph 4).
Switching from HID lamp to HO T5 fluorescent lamp: switching from his lamp to HO T5 lamp has become a common trend, which can improve energy efficiency in high bay lighting environments such as warehouses.
HO T5 and induction fluorescent lamps (High-
Bay Lighting: opportunities to reduce mercury and improve energy efficiency, P. 2003, Paragraph 7)
: * Able to insant-
Re-in and instantstrike.
* They can be applied to energy-efficient occupancy sensors.
* They can be adjusted by dimming * their mercury content is lower than that of HID lights (High-
Bay Lighting: opportunities to reduce mercury and improve energy efficiency, P. 2003, Paragraph 7).
Suggestion: facility owners, architects and managers using high bay lighting applications should choose the most energy-efficient system in which the lowest mercury content is suitable for the production and remodeling project.
For the project to improve the color, it is necessary to carefully evaluate.
The buyer should consult the lighting professional before purchasing the lighting system so that the whole project can be evaluated to check the energy efficiency, lighting level and proper color description.
You should tell your lighting professional that your company will like low mercury alternatives (High-
Bay Lighting: Opportunities for mercury emission reduction and energy efficiency, P. 2003, Paragraph).
