LED Loading Dock Light Saves Energy | Industrial Dock Light Fixture

22/02/11 1 COMMENTS

LED LOADING DOCK LIGHT FIXTURE AND ARMWith the heavy abuse of fork lifts, loading equipment and freight, having a reliable and indestructable light fixture to illuminate the inside of a 53′ trailer is crucial. Lighting in these situations is dark, and if no properly illuminated during day or night loading can result in damage to shipments, or even the acceptance of damage goods. To provide proper illumination, especially for large distribution centers can be costly in electricity usage and replacement of bulbs and fixtures that become damaged during industrial operations.

Indestructible LED Dock Lighting Fixture

Synergy Lighting offers the latest in LED technology with our lines of indestructible Dock Lighting Fixtures with a solid billet aluminum housing. Unmatched by Halogen, CFL or even LED Light Bulbs, the Dock Light Series LED fixture provides ten times (10x) the light levels of its energy wasteful rivals. This led fixture provides brilliant, crisp white light that delivers throughout the length of the longest trailers. The billet aluminum housing can withstand the harshest of long term, repetitive impacts without damaging the light source within. This is because the aluminum housing is 30 times thicker than competing fixtures with shock resistant mounting of the internal components.

LED DOCK LIGHT FIXTURE

  • Attaches directly to current dock light arm for easy retrofit.
  • 6 foot power cord with 5-15 straight blade plug or IEC 60320 – C14 Plug.
  • Optional 10′ power cord and Nema In-Line Power Switch
  • 100 – 240 Volt
  • High intensity LED with low power consumption.
  • LED life = 50,000 hours.
  • IP 65 Rated (Short Term Submersible).
  • “Safety Yellow” epoxy powder coat.
  • High impact acrylic lens for standard locations.
  • Borosilicate lens for hazardous locations.
  • High impact – passed military shock and vibration tests
  • Handles 200 hour salt fog.
  • Center Beam Candle Power – 7000

LED Dock Light Saves Time, Energy And Money

In an energy and cost analysis performed on behalf of a large Californiabased distribution center, Synergy Lighting was able to create an energy cost savings of over $290,000 dollars by replacing 221 Halogen Dock Lights with the LED Dock Lighting Fixture. This is because the energy savings of 120 watts per fixture is reduced to less than 16 watts per fixture. Replacement halogen light bulbs would have to be changed nearly 30 times if not prematurely damaged, not to mention the timeliness labor of ordering, stocking and replacing failed light bulbs. With 50,000 hours of maintenance free operation, the LED Dock Light Fixture is a no-brainer among shipping managers and distribution center management. The estimated energy savings alone per fixture based on a 8 hour daily run time is $719.00 per fixture.

LED Dock Light Delivers Highest Foot Candles

All CFL and halogen lamps fail to provide the required foot-candles of illumination at the most forward loading area of a trailer. The LED Dock Light exceeds it predecessors by delivering maximum brightness at the rear most loading point up to 53′ from the light source.

Footcandles Comparison (from inside trailer)
Distance Incandescent Quartz Halogen Fluorescent LED Dock Light
10 feet 15 28 9 184
20 feet 5 14 3 32
40 feet 2 5 15
53 feet 1 3 10

The LED Dock light is available in both 15w, 16w and 26w models. It is also an excellent option for Flag Pole Lighting and Landscape Lighting. Finishes Include: Safety Yellow, Black and Architectural Bronze.

LED Chandelier Light Bulb Makes Big Difference

08/08/10 0 COMMENTS

TCP LED CHANDELIER WALL SCONCE LIGHT BULBS

Switching to LED lighting is something most people are seemingly interested in.  However, when the typical cost of an LED light bulb is learned, that urgency begins to take a back seat to the urgency to hold tight on spending. The initial cost of most LED light bulbs is very high compared to the cost of an incandescent bulb. In the LED light bulb world, all things must be treated equally. This means you spend a little, you save a little, spend a lot and save a lot.  Sometimes in switching to LED lighting, we recommend that customers start with spending a little and saving a little to get used to the benefits of LED’s in commercial and residential use.

One of the most common types of incandescent light bulb used in both residential and commercial lighting is chandelier (B-Type) lamps. These type lamps are typically found in the 25 Watt and 40 Watt lamps and rarely found without multiple lamps per fixture such as a multi-point chandelier. Although we individually don’t look at these lamps as using much electricity, when you add up all the bulbs on an 8 point chandelier, it can add up to 500 Watts which in itself is very significant. Let’s look at a new product that can drastically reduce this consumption.

LDCT3WH30K LED Chandelier Bulb

The new LDCT3WH30K is a 3 Watt LED Chandelier Torpedo style lamp made by TCP. The lamp offers one of the smallest packages that most closely resembles the size and shape of an incandescent B-Type lamp while delivering maximum light output from a tower of SMD LED’scentered in the envelope. The tower array allows for 360° illumination while a circle of SMD LED’s on the top of the tower array direct light upwards as well. This arrangement of LED’s allow the lamp to perfectly illuminate chandelier lamp shades that can easily clip on to the lamps outer housing.  If used bare in a chandelier, the lamp closely replicates the light output of an incandescent, and would hardly be noticeable to anyone who wasn’t looking for it to be different.  Because of the very small Solid State electronics placed within the base of the LCDT3WH30K, dimming is no problem for this LED bulb. Heat output is also drastically reduced by the LDCT3WH30K LED light bulb.

LED CHANDELIER LIGHT BULBSThe TCP LED lamp delivery a consistant 3000K which is the color that most correctly resembles a halogen bulb, so incandescent users may see a slightly whiter output from the lamp, but seems to not be so different as to pull a negative review from customers. This difference in color creates a cleaner and just as bright feel for any chandelier, pendant or wall sconce. Now the biggest benefit of the 3 Watt LED lamp is that it can replace up to a 40 Watt Incandescent without any noticeable light loss. In an example of an 8 pt. chandelier, energy waste is reduced from 500 Watts per fixture to only 24 Watts,  for a total savings of 476 Watts.

Here is how that breaks down into savings:

Comparison 40 Watt Incandescent 3 Watt LED Chandelier
Average cost per bulb $.39 $18.39
Hours used per year 3850 3850
Hour life of bulb 1500 30,000
Energy cost per year (.13 pkw) $22.76 $1.70
Product life in years 4 months 7 Years
7 year Energy Cost $159.32 $11.90
Replacements required 21 n/a
Time to change bulb 10 minutes 10 minutes
Labor Cost ($12.00 per hour) $42.00 $2.00
Total Life Cycle Cost $209.51 $32.29
Calculations @ 12 hours use per day at $.13 p/kwh

Total Savings for switching 1 bulb to LED: $177.22!

 

The TCP LED chandelier bulb is available in with both candelabra and medium base, as well as Clear and Frosted versions as well as a Crystal Cut Clear and Frosted for a more decorative design.
