Extraordinary long-life Induction Lamp Technology: 100,000 hour rated system life for unprecedented longevity and durability. Over a 20-year operation, life-cycle cost savings more than pays for the initial system cost through reduced re-lamping costs, reduced recycling cost, and energy and maintenance savings versus any conventional lamp and ballast combination.
Virtually maintenance-free operation: perfect for applications where fixture location makes re-lamping labor intensive and costly, such as high ceilings, high traffic, hazardous and difficult-to-reach areas. Suitable also for energy-conscious customers who simply want to "turn it on and forget about it". A comparable metal halide system would require re-lamping up to TEN times.
Low heat output results in reduced air-conditioning costs.
Instant Start/Instant Restrike capability allows greater range of applications compared to Fluorescent and HID.
Superb lighting quality: no flickering, no strobing, no noise. Excellent color rendition - CRI 80. Versatile, natural looking white light with no color deviation through system lifetime. Reduces eye strain and stress, leading to increased worker productivity.
High luminous maintenance rate. Lamp lumen depreciation is .70 @ 100,000 hours for high light output through system lifetime. 65 Lumens per watt.
Superb for very lower temperature regions and applications. Low starting temperature down to -40° / 0°F.
