Detailed Product Description
The basic technology for induction lamps is not particularly new. Essentially, an induction lamp is an electrode less fluorescent. Without electrodes, the lamp relies on the fundamental principles of electromagnetic induction and gas discharge to create light. The elimination of filaments and electrodes results in a lamp of unmatched life. Lasting 120,000 hours or 25 years, this system can outlast 100 incandescent, 10 HPSV OR MH, OR 02 LED STREET LIGHTchanges.
Based on these well-known principles, light can be generated via a gas discharge through simple magnetism.Electromagnetic transformers, which consist of rings with metal coils, create an electromagnetic field around a glasstube which contains the gas, using a high frequency that is generated by electronic ballast. The discharge path,induced by the coils, forms a closed loop causing acceleration of free electrons, which collide with mercury atoms and excite the electrons. As the excited electrons from these atoms fall back from this higher energy state to a lower stable level, they emit ultraviolet radiation. The UV radiation created is converted to visible light as it passes through a phosphor coating on the surface of the tube. The unusual shape of an induction lamp maximizes the efficiency of the fields that are generated. On top of the above, due to its high lighting efficiency, it is normal to use only half the power of conventional HID or mercury vapour lightings.
Although it is not breakthrough science, until recently, it has not been so commercially viable. New developments have broken down the barriers of costs and technological setbacks, such as EMC interference, lumen depreciation, ability to dim and a useful range of available wattages. Today, its obvious benefits make it the clear-cut choice for
many lighting applications over traditional light sources.
INDUCTIONS LMAPS ARE EASY TO INSTALL AND UNLIKE THE LED DOESNT REQUIRE COSTLY ALUMINIUM LUMINARIES. THE LUMEN PER WATT IS ALMOST 98 AND HENCE CAN BE CALLED THE BIG BROTHER OF LED .
