The switch from HID lighting to LED lighting in recent years has affected all industries. LED, or light-emitting diodes, have a long lifespan and are more energy-efficient and environmentally friendly than HID, or high-intensity discharge lights. They also switch on faster, have higher light quality, produce less heat, and require less maintenance than HID lights.
Replacing high-voltage HID lamps, which are lamps above 480 volts in the United States and 347 volts in Canada, with LED lamps has been a challenge in the past. Generally, the higher the power, the higher the voltage. Olympia Lighting’s line of products solves the demand for LED replacements for HID lamps that work at high voltage.
What is the wattage range for these lamps?
The 480v LED replacement product line extends from 40 watts, which equals the equivalent of a 175 watt HID lamp to 500 watts, which replaces a 2,000 watt HID lamp. All of the products use high lumen terawatts, which means they generate between 130 to 160 lumens per watt.
Our 480v LED replacement product line also has a Coloring Rendering Index of 75, which means that the light faithfully reproduces color at 75 percent of what the sun does. This CRI of 75 compares with a CRI of 22 for high-pressure sodium lighting.
Our product line also has a high power factor (PF) and low total harmonic distortion (THD), which ensures the equipment will operate properly over the long-term.
How difficult is the HID LED retrofit?
Not difficult. In most cases, we use an internal driver and bypass the existing ballast that is driving the HID fixture. In places where we need an external driver, we cut the ballast out, put in our LED driver, run the main power into the LED driver and run the output of the LED jogger into the lamp socket.
We've also designed our replacement lamps to fit perfectly into existing fixtures. For example, we've taken the dimensions and invented a 250 watt LED bulb to be the same size as a 1000 watt metal halide bulb. That means our metal halide led replacement bulb will fit perfectly by just removing a screw.
How do you protect your LED lights from power surges?
Electrical surges can be especially problematic for many LED lights. The surges cause components and wires to overheat and melt, which leads to short circuits and damage to the lights. Every one of our lights includes a patent-pending surge protection device, which is unique in the industry. The device enables our lights to survive power outages, surges, and lightning strikes. Our lights also are guaranteed for five years or 50,000 hours.
