  1. A Brief History of Induction Lighting The induction light is a revolutionary breakthrough in the history of light. This new method of lighting does not use electrodes or heat filaments to produce light. Rather, induction lamps transmit energy through electromagnetic fields to simulate the atoms of the gas inside the glass tube and ...
  2. A Brief History of The Fluorescent Lamp Although Thomas Alva Edison and Nikola Tesla experimented with fluorescent lights back in the 1890s, they never produced any commercially viable versions of these lamps. Peter Cooper Hewitt is credited with laying down the blueprint for manufacturing fluorescent lamps on a mass scale and in an ...
  3. Pros and Cons of Fluorescent Lighting Since it's development by four scientists at GE in 1934, the modern fluorescent light has had both its admirers and its critics.   Those that are for fluorescent lighting talk about the lamp's long life span when compared to traditional incandescent light bulbs, which also makes it ...
  4. Why Do Fluorescent Lamps and Ballasts Fail? Just like any manufactured product, fluorescent lamps are not infallible.   Sometimes you may have a bad batch of product where something happened during the manufacturing system causing them not to last as long as they should. Or maybe a building experiences a freak electrical surge, ...
  5. A Brief History of High-Intensity Discharge [HID] Lighting High-intensity discharge (HID) lamps have been around for more than 100 years now. Earlier known as gas discharge chambers, HID light sources emit light by vaporizing metallic salts inside the electric arc chamber. HID lamps emit more light watt-by-watt compared to a conventional ...
  6. Energy Efficient Options for your Warehouse or Industrial Lighting If high-intensity discharge (HID) light fixtures are still hanging from the ceiling of your warehouse, a lighting retrofit or replacement could provide multiple benefits: reduced energy consumption, lower utility bills, reduced maintenance costs, and better quality lighting. And better lighting ...
  7. Life-Cycle Comparison of Retrofitting Metal Halide with LED or Fluorescent Lighting Performing a life-cycle cost analysis allows you to see the total cost of a light fixture over its lifetime, including its initial cost and its expected operating and replacement costs.  To compare the cost-effectiveness of several different types of technology prior to a lighting retrofit, you ...
  8. Lumen Maintenance and Depreciation Considerations in Warehouse Lighting What is Lumen Maintenance? Lumen maintenance compares the brightness of the light produced by a light source when it’s brand new to its light output at a specific time in the future.  You could, for example, compare its initial lumens to its end-of-life lumens to quantify ...
  9. How LED Lighting Works In the lighting industry, right now there are two words that are dominating many of the illumination choices contractors and building owners are making right now -- energy efficiency.   After all, the more efficient a light is the longer it will last and the less energy it will need to ...
  10. How LED Drivers Work Ins & Outs of LED Drivers As we discussed our earlier article about how LED lighting works, the needs of this type of illumination are a bit unique when compared to your conventional incandescent lighting, and even fluorescent lighting.   Although LED lighting has many great benefits ...
