Induction Lighting Saves Energy
Synergy Lighting offers the latest in Non-LED illumination with its full line of Induction Light Fixtures for parking lot lighting, induction street lighting, security and area flood lighting. This energy saving technology is fundamentally different that that of traditional High Intensity Discharge (HID) systems. With no filaments or cathodes to burn out, these unique lamps and fixtures last up to 100,000 hours, making them virtually maintenance free!
Why use Induction over LED?
Induction lamps offer extremem lumen maintenance (95%) which means that for the life of the lamp, the light output of the energy saving fixtures burn bright white without going dim. Additionally the induction lighting when used for street or parking lot lighting, increases night time visual accuity. Compared to newer LED lighting fixtures which have a maximum life of 60,000 hours, the induction lamps burn 40,000 hours longer at half the price. Synergy Lighting’s induction retrofits carry a full 10 Year Warranty!

Principal of Induction Lighting
Induction works by form of electromagnetic transformers consisting of ferrite rings with metal coils, create an electromagnetic field around a gas-filled glass tube, using a high frequency that is generated by an electronic ballast. The discharge path, induced by the coils, forms a closed loop causing acceleration of free electrons, which collide with mercury atoms and excite the electrons. As the excited electrons from these atoms fall back from this higher energy state to a lower stable level, they emit ultraviolet radiation. The UV radiation created is converted to visible light as it passes through a phosphor coating on the surface of the tube. The shape of the induction lamp maximizes the efficiency of the fields that are generated.
How it Works
The ballast generates the high frequency current that drives the inductively coupled discharge. The ballast contains an integrated circuit (IC) chip, which controls the operating frequency and allows the electrodeless fluorescent lamp to work properly with a ballast power factor of up to .99 for lower power consumption. This control feature is especially beneficial where fluctuations in the power supply are more than 10% of rated voltage. The ballast also meets EMC requirements, and the circuit board is designed for dust, humidity, and corrosion resistance.
