While induction lighting technology has been around for quite some time, it is now enjoying renewed popularity for its energy efficiency. Induction is a form of fluorescent technology that uses magnets instead of electrodes.
The benefits offered make it an ideal solution for interior applications such as high-ceiling warehouses, industrial buildings, cafeterias, gymnasiums, and cold storage.
Since induction is not significantly influenced by ambient temperature, it is also well suited for hard to reach applications like tunnels, bridges, roadways, outdoor areas, and security fixtures such as those in parking garages.
In many cases, the high efficacy of induction lighting can offer a payback in maintenance savings that can offset the initial cost of the system. Retrofits of existing fixtures are also available with induction bulbs and ballasts that can significantly reduce upfront costs of lighting upgrades.
