The advantages of induction over other forms of outdated lighting technology are innumerable. Key benefits of USLT induction include:
A 100,000+ Hour Rated Life
The most significant advantage of USLT induction lighting is its incredibly long rated life. The electrodes in a fluorescent lamp typically fail after 15,000 to 20,000 hours. Induction lamps do not utilize electrodes, so their rated life is 100,000 hours (significantly reducing the need for maintenance and lamp replacements). Induction is the preferred choice for industrial operating environments for this reason, where frequent lamp change-outs present serious logistical and safety challenges.
Better Lumen Output
USLT induction delivers a higher quality light output (with an 80+ CRI) that provides a white full spectrum light that is more usable to the human eye. USLT induction technology ensures better lumen maintenance throughout its useful life when compared with other lamp technologies. This means that our installations deliver a warm, non-glaring white light (compared with LED) that is more desirable for safety and security purposes.
“A ballast is a ballast is a ballast.” Unfortunately, nothing could be further from the truth, especially with electronic ballasts. Each individual component matters and overall design matters. USLT partners with Sylvania, the world’s largest lighting component supplier, to only use the highest quality components in our systems.
Better for the Environment
Induction lighting is eco-friendly. Induction lamps use less energy than conventional lighting and are more efficient with whatever energy they do use. Also, induction lamps require fewer lamp change-outs which results in less electronic waste going into our landfills. The end result: Because they are more energy efficient and eco-friendly than currently installed technologies, USLT induction lamps save businesses and taxpayers tangible dollars, while also reducing the overall carbon footprint.
USLT lighting systems are offered in a wide range of models and can even be customized to provide installation versatility – from streets, highways, tunnels, and bridges to parking structures, warehouses, and walk-ways. They are also ideal for any “campus” environment (university, medical center, military base, correctional institution, corporate plaza, etc.) that have all of the infrastructure and logistical needs of a micro-city.
Custom fit into an unusual or historic existing light fixture is also not a problem. USLT design engineers and technicians have extensive experience in making the most challenging installations possible to maintain the continuity and attractiveness of any night time cityscape.
Superior Overall Performance
USLT induction delivers a range of product features and benefits designed to reduce installation time, costs, and ongoing maintenance. Our lamps offer a virtual “Instant-on” capability, which provides important safety benefits. USLT induction also offers the advantage of more flexible luminaire positioning. Typically, sodium fixtures must be mounted to the side of a roadway for easy access during maintenance – for this reason, they must throw light across the road, rather than providing overhead illumination. USLT induction’s long product life cycle enables them to be mounted directly over the road where they can cast a broader, overhead light spread that covers the surface more completely and offers better light coverage for the entire roadway.
