What is Induction Lighting?
A fluorescent lamp without electrodes or filaments. Rings with magnetic coils create an electromagnetic field using a high frequency generated by the electronic ballast. This field goes around the glass filled tube. Electrons discharged by the magnetic coils collide with mercury atoms inside the tube and become excited. These electrons give off energy in the form of invisible UV light. The conversion to visible light occurs when it passes through a phosphor coating on the inside surface of the tube.
The lamp therefore relies on the fundamental principles of gas discharge and electromagnetic induction to produce light. As a result each lamp offers an unmatched lifespan. They can last longer that 100 incandescent bulbs, 5 HID, or 5 typical fluorescent lamp changes.
Energy Sense Ireland’s induction lamps have a long life span due to the lack of internal electrodes and very high energy efficiency due to high frequency electronic ballasts which are 98% effcient.
Energy Sense Ireland’s products provide 100,000 hours of service before relamping.
