Do You Need a Whole New Fixture When Upgrading to LED?
Apr 29 2019
There are business owners who have been put off in the past when it comes to upgrading to LED lighting. They may understand the basics of reduction in costs, greater energy efficiency and improved quality of lighting, but they are scared of initial installation costs. For industries which have older buildings in particular, this can seem daunting.
One of the main problems is how they update many of their equipment in industrial-scale Spaces. Fortunately, with OEO, these problems lead to more solutions.
Transform LED lighting
Retrofitting lighting means you can still use existing lighting fixtures, but you can easily adapt them to the wattage and power issues of LED bulbs. They are less expensive than installing new fixtures, but there may be some electrician fees if your staff is not confident about installing the bypass.
Ballasts are essential components for high intensity discharge (HID) lamps and metal halide bulbs. These are necessary because of the function of the discharge bulb. It takes a lot of energy to start the bulb, creating an arc between the electrodes in the aerated glass casing. This powerful energy needs to be controlled, otherwise too much current will flow to the electrodes and cause them to short-circuit.
This need for power regulation is another reason LED lighting is more energy efficient than HID lighting. They do not require any ballast to start because they are self-regulating and require less energy to produce the same brightness. Our OEO modified bulbs, such as EZ LED bb-p, have simple ballast bypass options, which means you can use the same lamps but can use ballast components. It's a simple HID switch, like a high pressure sodium lamp or a metal halide bulb, which means you don't have to worry about ruining your space or tearing up your ceiling installation.
Plug and play to replace leds directly
Although retrofitting is simple for a space, it is not the simplest option we offer. Our direct replacement bulbs, such as EZ LED 1K ULTRA series, are ideal for elevated Spaces such as warehouses, hangars or processing plants. They fill the space with up to 1,000 watts of output and don't run out of lumens like the HID does.
This light quality is very important because there is no ballast bypass, and they can shine as needed. They also do not incur any additional installation costs, as they are described by insertion and immediate lighting.
Another major advantage of high voltage sodium bulbs and other HID bulbs is their ability to turn on instantly, combine motion sensor technology, and provide the right light when you need it.
New LED lamps
It might be easy to assume that the new LED fixtures are only for those who need them, that is, for old fixtures that cannot be bypassed or for some reason adapted to plug and play. While this is true, it is not the only case.
LED lighting is becoming the industry standard in many fields, so installing them is good for any new building or company that wants to be forward-looking. They cost more to install, but the benefits are myriad. They have excellent light quality and can be studied. OEO EDGE LED lamps provide up to 130 lumens per watt and save up to 70% of your energy costs. The L70 has a service life of 100,000 hours and a service life of up to 5 years. New equipment is more of an investment, but that only means you'll get a higher return.
