How Induction Lighting Works

Induction lighting has many advantages over metal halide, high or low pressure sodium, quartz halogen and Light Emitting Diode (LED) systems, with outstanding properties of long life, unwavering light and energy saving capabilities, there’s every reason to choose induction lighting. See for yourself by comparing Induction Lighting with High Pressure sodium, LED Lamps and Metal Halide Lamps.

Bemi is proud of its induction lighting range, which utilizes a unique process to produce light that does not flicker, has an exceptional colour rendering index and which has a power factor of 0.98+, all whilst saving energy, and lasting for up to 100,000 hours.

The unique benefits of induction lighting include long life, low maintenance needs and powerful performance, due to the unique technology employed by induction lighting to produce light.

How it works

Induction technology allows the conversion of electrons into light, with the assistance of some specialised tools.

The process is simple:

  1. The ballast supplies the electric coils with low frequency electrical current.
  2. The ferrite magnets on either side of the bulb then emit electromagnetic fields which excite electrons within the bulb.
  3. As the electrons accelerate inside the bulb, they collide with mercury atoms and produce Ultra-Violet (UV) light radiation.
  4. The UV light then causes the special phosphor coating inside the glass to react in a way that produces fluorescent light within the visible spectrum.
