Induction - Features & Benefits
Induction technology produces savings from purchase and installation to your ongoing energy bills. The reliable technology and design means greater performance and quality of lighting meaning less eye strain.
Ongoing lighting savings across the whole range are estimated to be 70% in comparison to traditional metal halides. These savings are attributed to:
- Higher Scotopic/Photopic (S/P) ratios mean higher Visual Effective Lumens
- Higher Lumens per Watt therefore less Watts needed
- Reflective technology design maximising light produced
- 10 year minimum life
- Low maintenance and easily accessible designs
Purchase and installation saving of up to 50% are available on products accredited by the Victorian Energy Efficiency Target (VEET). For more information on the VEET scheme or specific savings available for your application please contact us.
In the Field Reports USA ‘Induction Lighting’
This video is the latest in a series of In the Field video reports from the USA aimed at sharing innovations, research and new technology. This short video demonstrates the multitude of benefits offered by Induction technology on a large scale.
Benefits of installing, or replacing, lighting with induction technology
- Up to 100,000 hours of operating life
- Extremely Low maintenance
- Low glare, reducing eye strain in the work place
- Extreme efficacy 85+ lumens per watt
- Vibration resistant
- Exceptional colour rendering index 80+ – in some cases 90+
- Scotopic/Photopic Ratio of 1.96 - 2.25
- Colour temperature choice of warm white to cool white 2,700–6,500K
- Switching on/off instantaneously and also available in dimmable range.
- No flickering, strobing, or noise
- Power factor 0.95+
- Low Frequency of 240KHz, meaning no interference
- Operating position does not affect the performance
- Operating temperature range -34°C to 55°C (special -50°C to +100ºC lamps available)
Visual Effective Lumens
Visual Effective Lumens is calculated by the use of a ratio combining both Scotopic & Photopic lighting values. This is what we call the S/P ratio. When this ratio is included into the formula of calculating lumens (Light Source), you end up with a more accurate calculation of what we call “Visual Effective Lumens”.
