High Bay LED Lights – OMWLights(China)
OMWLIGHTS LED high bay light is targeted at warehouse, industrial, retail, gymnasium, and convention-center applications. The application of LED high bay was relatively low in warehouses for the past decades. Older versions of LEDs didn’t provide the same level of illumination as HIDs, which made them impractical. Lighting represents more than 60% of the average warehouse’s electricity end use. Much of that electricity goes to high bay lighting, which is defined as indoor lighting in spaces with ceilings that are 25 feet tall or higher. Unfortunately, much of the electricity used to light those fixtures is wasted, primarily due to outdated technology. Wasted electricity in warehouses comes in many forms, but the reliance on older lighting technologies, such as high-intensity discharge (HID) and linear fluorescent, is the most notable example. However, that has changed in recent years as LED technology had developed to meet the lighting needs of modern businesses, including warehouses. That is why many warehouse owners and managers are turning to light emitting diodes (LEDs) for their high-bay fixtures. The high bay lighting market is getting ready for a big shift to LED technology. This is being driven by the falling prices of LED lamps. High bay lighting applications in commercial and industrial environments now are well positioned to take advantage of LEDs in terms of energy savings and minimizing downtime.
The installed of LED high bay lighting more than quintupled between 2010 and 2012. Recent LED high bay lighting developments have made their application ideal in refrigerated warehouses and other storage and shipping facilities for many reasons. Not only do LED high bay use less energy, they offer many other benefits that make them perfect for warehouse owners and managers who are intent on using innovation to maximize profits, create a safer work environment and streamline their overall operations. The following are 5 benefits that demonstrate the value LED high-bay fixtures can bring to warehouses.
1.LED high bay have a much lower heat output than other light. This can be particularly helpful for refrigerated warehouses, where the heat given off by older bulbs makes it difficult to maintain optimum refrigeration temperatures and leads to higher energy costs.
2.With LED high bay light, warehouse lighting can make for a safer and more productive work environment. Employees can see more clearly, making movement throughout the facility much easier. For example, workers in a food processing facility can more accurately select the products they are seeking.
3.With correct lamp placement and well-designed LED high bay, forklift operators can move through loading areas better with improved visibility to see other employees and potential obstacles.
4.Due to their height and the large number of bulbs required, high-bay fixtures are some of the most difficult to maintain. Getting to bulbs that need to be replaced requires special equipment. Older bulbs with shorter lifespans than LEDs need to be replaced frequently. LED high bay last 2 to 5 times longer than HIDs, which means less time and resources being devoted to basic maintenance.
5.LED high bay also lend themselves easily to dimming and other lighting controls. They turn on and off immediately, whereas HIDs take much longer to reach full brightness. LED high bay work well with dimming controls, allowing you to add control to lighting environments and tailor lighting levels.
